For Adoption 

PLEASE NOTE:  Effective immediately, due to the pandemic, while we are still doing intakes on pups, MSRH is suspending applications to adopt starting July 24 and continuing through September 1, 2020.   MSRH has been getting approximately 50 applications to adopt a day.  We need to work through our current apps, including a review and confirmation of who is still interested in adopting before moving onto new applications.  We appreciate your understanding during these stressful times!



Hi folks, my name is Tristan. I have been at this rescue place for over a year now and I am yearning for a home of my own and someone who will love me and take care of me. I am a black Miniature Schnauzer boy who is 3 years old and weighs 14 pounds I have natural ears and a natural tail too. You see, I am also kind of a scared guy and a bit aggressive around people I haven't gotten to know. I don't mean to be this way, but I have not had the best of life so far. My foster Mom says I need a home with a single person and no other pets. I love my human and tend to become protective. At my foster home she has other dogs and I don't really play with them and if they come around my foster Mom I don't like it very much. I think I am just scared I might lose her. It is just going to take a person who will let me get used to being around them and not try to push me and let me learn to trust again. An experienced dog owner is a must who will just go slow and give me time to warm up without being forced.  Please just give me a chance.  Tristan must be adopted in the Houston area as we will give two training sessions for him and his new adopter.

Liam is a 7 year old white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a cropped tail and weighs about 15 lbs. He's housetrained and crate trained. Liam loves to go on walks and is an excellent walking companion. He's submissive to dogs but will need time to warm up to humans. Liam‘s perfect match is an experienced dog owner who isn't intimidated by a stubborn Mini Schnauzer. Grooming isn't his favorite thing. Liam is quiet inside but can get vocal in the yard. He has hair loss on his chest and legs which will continue to get better as he's on inexpensive canine thyroid medication with his daily meals. A calm home without small children would be ideal

My name is Waldo and I am what you guys call, a Schnoodle. That's part Miniature Schnauzer and part Poodle - also known as a "Designer Dog". Yep that's me, Waldo. I am seven years old and weigh about 25 pounds. I am salt and pepper in color and have natural ears and a docked tail. My Foster Mom says that I would do better in a home with only one person as I was abused before I came to MSRH. I take Gabapentin for my back as I was kind of kicked around. I need a human that understands abused dogs and can love me anyway. I do like the other Schnauzer at her home and we love to play. Mom says to tell you that I get kind of scared when it storms but I am trying really hard not to be so afraid until those things pass. I also like to lay very close to my Foster Mom and get pets on my head and neck. I will give kisses to say thanks! I just need someone to love and to love me back!

Hey guys, its me Hildi. And, do I have a lot to tell you. First of all I am what they call a senior gal at 13 years old and I weigh about 11 pounds. I am chocolate in color and have natural ears and a docked tail. Well, now that those things are out of the way, let's get to the important stuff. I may be thirteen, but I am a very active gal and love being outside sniffing stuff and looking around. I also get along just fine with the other dogs at my foster home. I may not have many teeth (actually, all of them have been pulled), but don't count me out on the eating field. I get along just fine with a little water on my kibble. I would love for someone to come along and just be my family. I may have forgotten to mention that my ears are one of my best features but the rest of me ain't bad either.

This cute little guy is Casper and Casper is one special guy if you are asking anyone at MSRH.  He is three years old and weighs about 10 pounds, is white with natural ears and a natural tail too. Casper has had some problems in his short life and one of them is with his legs. We operated on the left knee earlier this year and the right knee may need the same surgery.  If this is required MSRH will pay for it after he is adopted, whenever it is needed.  
Casper is going to require a very patient human and someone that will work with him on housetraining and not let him get by with marking his territory.  He is a real cutie and will make a great family pet as long as there are no small children.  He does get along with other dogs, though. Give him a try. Casper is worth a little patience and a lot of loving.

Alfred is a very nice Miniature Schnauzer. He is five years old, weighs about 21 pounds, is salt and pepper in color and has natural ears and tail. He LOVES to play ball and playing with his toys. He also loves being in your lap and in the big bed, if he is allowed. He is kennel trained, but will give you those sad eyes if he has to go in. He is also doggie door trained and will sit to receive his food. Overall, he is really a good, friendly dog. His only issue is if he meets new people and they reach to pet him, he might nip them. He needs to meet people slowly. At his foster home after the 2nd day there, he realized he could trust them and was very friendly. He would not do well with children and needs an experienced Schnauzer owner.
