1-Looking for Homes


 Gradie4  Gradie  Gradie3

Look folks, I’m not going to sugarcoat this. I’ve had a rough life. My previous owner didn’t take care of my teeth, so I got a bacterial infection that damaged a heart valve. Now I have to take two daily heart medications. I will repay you with lots of love and cuddle time. I’m eight years young and I think I deserve to live the rest of my life in the kind of home where people love you and take care of you. I’m a great guy. I weigh twenty four pounds and I am really sweet. I’m house trained, crate trained, get along with other dogs, and even older kids. By golly, I DO deserve a loving forever home – Yours! Fee: Speak with your adoption counselor.



“But let’s just pretend for a minute that it’s a seed, alright? We’ll just use our imaginations. Do you see our tree? Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed. All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voilá!” My name is Stuart and I’m a male black miniature schnauzer. I’m four years old and weigh nineteen pounds. I’ve got natural ears and a docked tail. Like the seed I also needed a little water, sunshine and TLC. You see I had a torn ligament in my leg when I was rescued by MSRH. MSRH took care of the surgery and I’m all better. My leg is still a little stiff but with the right family or foster I will be a giant healthy tree in no time. I kid, but I look forward to being all better. Ask for me Stuart in our MSRH adoption application. Fee: $ 350

Money (Pending Adoption)

Do you have the energy to keep up with puppy power? My name is Money.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and tail.  I’m only six months old and I weigh ten pounds.  I’m a tiny little tyke, who was thankfully rescued from a kill shelter! I’m so young and have so much to learn. Are you willing to teach me and make me a perfect family companion? I’m a very friendly, bouncy, energetic and sweet boy. I’m searching for an experienced owner and would do really good with other canine companions. You gotta burn this puppy power somehow. I would need older children (12yrs and older), since I’m still learning to be gentle. I’m crate trained and I’m learning the art of house training. Ask for puppy power, Money, on your MSRH Adoption Application. Adoption Fee:  $450.

Hear ye! Hear ye! I’m Sir Austin and I’m a male black and white male miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail. I’m about two years old and weigh about thirteen pounds. I’ve been granted this high honor by the lords and ladies of MSRH.  Thank you MSRH, I will not let you down.  I’m a brave, loyal, honest and chivalrous schnauzer who wishes to escort you on walks, protect your kingdom and create memories with my new family. My house training skills are being evaluated, but once I get my results be sure to listen to the town crier. Let’s have a fairy tale ending. Ask for me, Sir Austin on your MSRH adoption application. Fee: $450


Kingston PS Kingston Kingston 2

Hello, my name is Kingston.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about fifteen pounds.  Due to my past hardships, I’m bit fearful of new people although I like to be petted. Fortunately, I have made great progress with my trainer.  I can now walk nicely on a leash.  I get along well with other dogs and I would do well in a home with at least another canine sibling.  I’m also good with cats!  Plus, I’m completely house and crate trained.  I would be fine with teenage children but younger kids make me nervous.  And get this, I’m a quiet schnauzer.  I hope my new mom or dad will be patient with me in gaining my trust.  But I promise this: When I know I’m loved, I will repay you with all my love and loyalty.  Ask for me, Kingston, on your MSRH Adoption Application.  Adoption Fee:  $350

“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

“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

Jenny Bella

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
