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 said that I’m the biggest cuddle bug of all times.  Thank you Mom, I love you too.  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 Corbin.  I’m a male salt and pepper mini schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh approximately seventeen pounds.  My previous owner didn’t want me anymore so they dropped me off at a kill shelter.  Thanks to MSRH, I now have a second chance at life.  I know I will find a loving forever home where I won’t be let down again by people that I have loved.  I’m a quiet and well-behaved boy.  I walk well on a leash and I enjoy taking a stroll with my human.  Please visit me soon; my grateful heart is waiting for you.  Ask for me, Corbin, on  your MSRH adoption application.  Adoption fee:  $350

“I don’t have a lot, but with me that’s fine;  Whatever I got, well, I know it’s mine!  I don’t go around with the local crowd;  I don’t dig what’s in so I guess I’m out.  The boat that I row won’t cross no ocean;  The boat that I row won’t get me there soon.  But I got the love and if you got the notion;  The boat that I row’s big enough for two!  Just me and you!”  I’d sure like to have a forever home.  I conned the San Antonio shelter into believing I was a Schnauzer.  I thought that might give me a shot with MSRH.  MSRH answered the call and just like that I was half-way home!  I’m sneaky that way!  I’m Marley and I’m a female, salt & pepper something-or-other with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about twelve pounds.  I’m quite the friendly girl….it’s just part of my natural charm…and I’m quiet and calm.    I’m a little shy when we first meet (I think I’m just afraid I’ll blow my cover).   Because of my shyness, it is probably best that I go to a home with older children. I’m crate trained and very quiet when I’m in it and house trained too!   I walk nicely on a leash by your side.  I’m little so I don’t require much, just a lap at my forever home to cuddle with you.  I love to sit with you and be petted.    If you get distracted and stop petting me, I kindly remind you with a ‘tap’ on your hand that you can resume.  I can be your own four-legged friend or go to a home with other dogs.  I get along with every body.  My foster parents have noticed that after a life on the streets as a stray I’m slowly learning from my foster brothers how to play like other dogs like to play and guard the house from those pesky squirrels and anything else we think needs to keep away.    If you’re not particular about whether or not I’m a Schnauzer, I will make as good a pet as any that are out there!  I’ve done my part. I’m here!  I’m waiting!  Now I just need someone to do their part.  Ask for me, Marley, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

Marley Boy


Hello, I’m Marley Boy.  I’m a male salt and pepper miniature schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about one year old and I weigh approximately eighteen pounds.  I’m very loving and playful.  I absolutely love being around other doggies; in fact, I thrive in an environment where I have four-legged buddies to play with.  I don’t do well being around children because they tend to tease me a lot.  I’m well behaved and I try to stay out of trouble.  I’m crate trained and house trained.  I’m looking for a loving forever home with no kids and with one or more canine siblings.  I’m full of energy and I need plenty of exercise; so a home with a big yard to play in and to chase the squirrels will be ideal.  Will you be my new mom or dad?  Ask for me, Marley Boy, on your MSRH adoption application. Adoption Fee:  $450

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 give to you;  And you give to me.  True love, true love!  So on and on, it will always be.  True love, true love!  For you and I have a guardian angel, on high with nothing to do.  But to give to you, and to give to me, love forever true!”  True love doesn’t need an identity.  I know I don’t have much Schnauzer in me…but MSRH couldn’t say ‘no’ to a face that said, ‘I just want to be loved’.  Maybe a special adoption fee – just for me – will entice you to give me a chance!  I’m Pastel and I’m a female Schnauzer mix with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m less than one year old and I weigh twenty-seven pounds.  I’m a very friendly girl and I have loved all the people I get to meet.  I’m also a fan of other four-legged friends.  Young girls like to play!  Boys, you have to catch me for a kiss!  When I’m not running from the boys, I also like to play with toys.  That rhymes.  Nice! Perhaps I’ll be a songwriter….maybe the MSRH webmaster needs a little help!  For a young girl, I’m reasonably calm and quiet. I’m especially quiet in my crate and  I now have my house training certificate.   My foster Mom believes I am part retriever because I LOVE playing in the water and tug-o-war.  She’s says I’m the best foster she has ever had!    I’m having the best time with their two dogs and even the cat.     “For you and I have a guardian angel giving to you and giving to me, love forever true!”  I’m just a young girl looking for a home. I just know it can be true love!  Ask for me, Pastel, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250

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

“I is just what I was;  And am ain’t who I be!  To love the language, you got to be born on the banks of the Mississippi!  Stayin’ by my mama’s, in slippers and pajamas, where there’s always somethin’ good to eat!  Bettin’ strawberries, honey and cherries, and pecan-pies oh so sweet!  Hmmm.  With a dew-rag on my brow;  Jasmine, wisteria and fleur-de-lis.  To love the language, you got to be born on the banks of the Mississippi!”  I’m not from Mississippi.  Well, maybe I am.  All I know is, I love the South!  Such culture.  Such good family time!  I want to be a part of that. I want a home where there’s love like that!  I’m Mickey and I’m a male, black Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail.  I’m about three years old and I weigh about twenty pounds.  I was given up by my family after they moved into an apartment.  No where to run.  No where to be free.  Yea…I wasn’t too happy with it either.  I need a home.  A yard.  Squirrels to chase.  I want the whole enchilada!  I love being with my family and I’m not too interested in other dogs.  But it may be that I’m just not exposed to dogs that want to play and have a good time.  I’m all about play and good times!  It may take some getting used to though. Let’s take it slow and see how it goes!  I’ve been around kids but young ones make me a little nervous.  Admittedly, I’m a bit of a stuffed animal bandit.  If it’s stuffed, it’s mine.  That’s really all I need to say about that. I’d like a home with older children or an all-adult home.  Young children do not like their stuffed animals taken. I’ve learned that!  I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too.  I can be the pet you want.  I’m ready!  “Pull up a screen po-ch;  Flop out in a rockin’ chair!  To love the language, you got to be born on the banks of the Mississippi!”  I don’t care where you’re from!  You may not understand everything I say…but you can understand this:  I want to be in your forever home!  Ask for me, Mickey, on your MSRH adoption application!  Adoption Fee:  $250
