“I’ve been put down;  I’ve been pushed ’round.  When will I be loved?  I’ve been made blue;  I’ve been lied to.  When will I be loved?  When I find a new man, that I want for mine.  He always breaks my heart in two;  It happens every time!”  Well, I’m not going to let it happen again!  I want a forever home….with emphasis on forever!  I’m Rosalind.  Kind of sounds like Rondstadt doesn’t it?  A little bit.  OK, maybe not.  I’m a female, salt & pepper Schnauzer mix (probably part Bichon Frise) with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about five years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.  I was a little timid when I first came to MSRH but now that I’m in a loving MSRH foster home, I’m getting back to my ol’ self!  My foster mom says I’m a very sweet girl.  In addition to my human friends, I also get along with other four-legged friends too!  I can go to a home with or without another four-legged friend.  I’m crate trained and completely house trained.  I love the outdoors and enjoy playtime with my human.  I also enjoy cuddle time with my human but sometimes I like alone time too.  Kind of like a cat!  I’m a good traveler and Mom is working on my leash training skills.  I know some basic commands and I’m warming up to everyone I meet!  So….”Tell me, when will I be loved?”  It starts today!  Right after you ask for me, Rosalind, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

Are you searching for your gentle giant? My name is Nolan.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about thirty pounds.  Yes that’s right; I’m a big boy.  You may even say overweight but that’s just semantics, right?  I had a very nice but elderly mom who took very good care of me.  Yes, lots of treats!!  But now that my mom is getting on in years, she realizes that I need to be with a younger and more active family.  I’m a sweet and friendly boy who loves people and gets along with other dogs.  I’m very active and energetic and a home with some kids and a big yard would be ideal for me.  Will also go a long way to help me lose those extra pounds. I’m the perfect gentlemen during grooming and bathing.  A guy likes to look his best. Please come and visit me soon; I’m waiting with a lot of love and playfulness.   I’m currently being boarded with my friends at Dogtopia. Ask for me, Nolan, on your MSRH adoption application. I promise a lot of big bear hugs! Adoption Fee:  $350

“You know the future’s lookin’ brighter every morning’ when I get up.  Don’t be thinkin’ ’bout what’s not enough,now baby;  Just be thinkin’ ’bout what we got!  Think of all my love, now;  I’m gonna give you all I got!  So baby hold on to me;  Whatever will be, will be.  The future is ours to see;  When you hold on to me!”  Someone holding me…in a forever home.  That would just be awesome!  I’m Maxwell and I’m a male, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about five years old and I weigh about twenty pounds.  I’m crate trained and house trained.   I’m good with most other dogs and I enjoy having play time outside.  I just spent a month at Shelmar Kennels getting some polishing done on my obedience skills. I won’t jump up on people and I walk nicely on the leash. Now that I’m an ‘adult’ I only want to be around adults. I like knowing your in charge; a true pack leader. Yes, that’s what I’m looking for an alpha owner, so I don’t have to worry about you.  If you’re an experienced Schnauzer owner in an all-adult home, I’d sure like to meet you!  Just ask for me, Maxwell, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $350

Hello, I’m Danny.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer mix with natural ears and tail.  I’m about six years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds.  I’m a very quiet boy; thus, I can go to an apartment.  I’m very timid and shy with new people.  But once I get to know you and trust you, I just bloom.  I will do well in a quiet home with no children. I’m very good at being handled and groomed. I’m crate trained and my foster parents just issued me my house training certificate. That’s right! Signed, Sealed and Delivered! If you have the patience to let me get comfortable, I promise you will be rewarded with lots of love and devotion. Ask for me, Danny, on your MSRH Adoption Application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Hi, I’m Lili.  I’m a white female miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about five years old and I weigh about sixteen pounds.  I’m on a prescription food to control had bladder stones –but it’s not expensive.  I’m just a little cuddle bug, loving and laid back. My favorite past times are cuddling in your lap, exploring my surroundings, eating and sleeping.  I’m fine with other dogs but I won’t mind being your one and only baby.  I’m also fine with kids, but I get a bit excited and do bark.  I’m crate trained and house trained and can be left alone without you worrying about me chewing anything!  My foster Mom said I would be a dream dog for someone.  What an endorsement.   Come and visit me soon.  Ask for me, Lili, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

My name is Jenny Bella.  I’m a black female miniature schnauzer with big natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about two years old and I weigh about fifteen pounds.  A good Samaritan found me struggling in Bulverde, TX and called MSRH.  I’m  blind in one eye and cannot see a lot out of the other eye.  Except for the fact that I bump into things occasionally, for the most part you would not know I’m blind.  My foster mom said that I’m very smart and completely house trained.  I’m a playful and very loving girl.  I enjoy playing outside.  I get along well with my doggie friends; I even get along with the cats!  I don’t do well with young children because they often startle me or wear me out.  I enjoy being in a doggie park.  My foster mom believes that my lack of vision should not be an issue at all; I just need a little bit more time to adjust to a new home.  If you have the patience and love to take care of me, I promise I will repay you with all my love and devotion for many years to come.   Ask for me, Jenny Bella, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $250

Hello, I’m Curtis.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about six years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.  In my previous life, I was badly neglected.  I was left all alone in the back yard and ignored and then was given up completely.  Thanks MSRH for rescuing me and showing me that there are good humans who care.  My foster mama reports that I’m one big cuddle bug. I’m super sweet, love riding in the car.  I absolutely love water; I jump in the shower with my foster dad after our daily morning run together.  You can say that I’m the cleanest doggie you’ll ever meet.  I get along great with other canine friends and even with cats.  I would do best in a home with adults and older children. I like to sleep on my human’s bed while being held like a teddy bear.  Alright, if you prefer I’d sleep on my own bed but don’t be surprised if you find yourself waking up next to a slumbering me.  I walk well on the leash.  I know some tricks like “Stay” and “Sit”.  To top it off, I’m crate trained, doggie door trained, and house trained.  Are you impressed yet?  Ask for me, Curtis on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

Hello, I’m Sky.  I’m a female salt and pepper miniature schnauzer mix with natural ears and docked tail.  I’m about two and a half years old and I weigh about thirteen pounds.  My ethnicity is a bit undefinable; MSRH believes I’m a product of a schnauzer and a mysterious stranger (you know how adventurous schnauzers can be).  I was rescued all the way up from the valley where I recently had puppies (that’s another story). My foster Mom said I’m attentive, responsive, sweet and very smart, plus loving and lovable!  Wow, what an endorsement!  I do bark on walks at other dogs, but a little training can fix that.  I just need to know I am safe and not responsible for protecting my human.  While I do get along with other dogs, I would prefer to be your only one.  I also love going for rides in the car.  I’m especially good at ridding your big backyard of any squirrels and can even climb trees to chase them away.   Mom has been working with me on my fear of the clippers and I’m becoming more relaxed.    On top of that, I’m crate trained and house trained.  So, how about it?   Ask for me, Sky, on your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption Fee $350

I’m Pia, a young eight year old female black and silver miniature schnauzer, weighing a tiny nine lbs., with a natural tail and ears.   My foster Dad brags that I have the sweetest disposition.  I have to say I really enjoy my foster home  and have been perfect about my house training.   Don’t won’t to ruin a good thing!   Living here is so much better than being in that animal shelter.  I also enjoy our extended walks and my foster mini schnauzer sister is the icing on the cake.   While I haven’t been around small children since being with MSRH, my foster Dad says I should do well.    I do like to explore the world, so please don’t leave a door open as I am off to see where those squirrels are hiding!  Ask for me, Pia, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250
