Gracie Elaine is my name and looking for the perfect home is my plan. I am 5 and ½ years young and only weigh 8.6 pounds. I love to be held and will sit in your lap for as long as you will allow. My foster mommy thinks that I am a very good Schnauzer and need special handling, so only adults should apply for me. I have been spayed and have a microchip. I received all my shots and am ready for a new home. I am also heartworm negative. My ears are natural and I have a docked tail. I get along with the other Schnauzers in my foster home and can use a doggy door. I am leashed trained and enjoy going on walks. I am also crate trained. If you enjoy looking at this adorable face, please ask for me when applying.

I am Sara Jane ,am 18 months old, and weigh 15 pounds. I was first picked up by Harris County and was lucky enough to be selected for treatment by Tomball College Veterinary Technology Program. When I first entered the program, I had flea infestation and was treated immediately with capstar. The next day, I was bathed with Mycodex and given frontline. I weighed 15.7 pounds then. Everyone that came in contact with me told me I was a good girl and that I had a good demeanor. I think that is good!!! They also said that I was happy (they were always smiling at me). At first, I did not have an appetite and lost weight. I found out that I was heartworm positive. Ugh!!

The good news is that I have been treated for the heartworm and have successfully finished my treatment. As of May 19, I am ready to go to a loving forever home. I have had all my shots, have a microchip and have been spayed also. I am crate trained and can walk with a leash. I love to lie in your lap and I get along with other dogs. I have natural ears and a beautiful tail. My coloring is Black, tan and white (tri-color). You have to see me to appreciate my beauty.

I know there is someone out there that would love to have a laid back Schnauzer that will be loyal for years. Please ask for me when filling out your application.

Chris (a.k.a. A.J.) is a 3 year old salt and pepper male. He has natural ears, docked tail, is neutered, and has a microchip. He's going through heartworm treatment beautifully and will be ready for adoption after 2/16. If you want to laugh, this is the friend for you! You can't help but smile at his big "Flying Nun" ears and the way he stands on your lap ready for attention. He gives kisses. He is a very cuddly dog and loves sleeping with his foster family. We were pleasantly surprised that Chris was already house trained and could "sit" on command. He doesn't mind being in a crate, but doesn't need to be. Chris loves to run and especially loves to play "catch" with a ball. Chris is selective about other dogs. He probably wouldn't like cats, since he tries to eat the other small pets at his foster families house! He also probably would rather not be in a house with kids who are too rough with him. We hope you'll ask about Chris, he needs a loving family.

My name is Hanna Sue. I am an adorable white Schnauzer baby girl. I have natural ears, a docked tail, am about 5 months old and weigh 7 pounds.

If you have read my story and saw my picture on the website then you know I got off to a rough start in life. I am happy to report that as of February 23 the final test reports came in and determined that I am now a happy, healthy puppy, which means no more meds or tests. Everyone has been so excited about my remarkable recovery.

I am young and inquisitive so I wake up every morning looking for a new adventure. Just the other day I was at my foster mom's feet while she was at the computer. I heard her say something about a mouse so I thought I would help her out by killing it. I don't know why but she was not happy or impressed with my skills as a mouse eliminator. She said something about having to buy a new mouse and pulling all my teeth out. Not to worry she was giving me hugs minutes later.

I don't know a lot of commands yet but I am working on housetraining and walking on a leash. I do know my name and the word “no” … I hear that a lot.

I love playing with my foster brothers and sisters and I am a very good traveling companion.

If you are an experienced pet owner with time to spend with me please mention my name when filling out the adoption application. No children under the age of 12 years please.

Love,
Hanna

Shiloh is a sweet 6 year old salt and pepper mini. His previous owner wanted to put him to sleep because he had a kidney stone. The vet asked for custody and fixed him up and now this beautiful boy is looking for a loving home. He's a little overweight at 16 pounds. He has natural ears and a natural tail. He is heartworm negative, neutered, and is microchipped. This cute boy loves to play and go for walks. He loves to play ball and loves the sqeaky toys that no one plays with at his foster home. He is house trained and learned to use the dog door in one day at his foster home. He is great with kids and dogs. He is much quieter that his foster siblings, too! This one is a keeper!

My name is Bobby Joe. My foster family says that I have those perfect Hollywood Make-Up Eyes…I haven't really looked in the mirror, so I will just have to take their word for it. But you can judge for yourself when you see my pictures.

I am a salt & pepper (mostly salt) 2-year-old boy who loves to play. I mean REALLY LOVES TO PLAY. I have never chewed on anything except what I am allowed to, I have great personal boundaries.

I have cropped ears, a docked tail and I weigh a whopping 22 pounds. That's why my foster family calls me “Big Boy”, because I am big and tall, just perfect if you ask me!

I don't remember for sure but I must have had a family before because of all the smart things I can do. I can use the doggie door or stand at the other doors to let you know when I need to go outside. I am really good on the leash and love to play outside. I mean REALLY LOVE TO PLAY OUTSIDE.

I don't mind sleeping in a kennel/crate but my favorite place to sleep is on the furniture or in bed with my foster family, because people are my favorite thing these days. Who knew a dog could live like this; inside, healthy dog food, clean water to drink, nice toys to play with, clean laundry to snuggle up in fresh from the dryer…all I can say is “bow-WOW”. Oh yeah, my foster family wants you to know that I don't bark much because I am a ‘talker'. They say I sound like a tipsy or sleepy owl. I will talk for you when you come to meet me.

I have been all “fixed” up by the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston. I have been micro chipped, neutered, vaccinated and am heartworm negative…YIPPEE.

I love children, dogs and cats too. I am really good at going bye-bye in the car too. I don't like to hang my head out the window like the other dogs, but I love to sit in the seat, look around and fall asleep.

Can you believe that I am up for adoption? I can hardly believe it myself because I am just too good of a catch! Will you catch me and make me your forever-friend? Hey, don't forget to check out all my pictures

Love,
Bobby Joe Aka “Big Boy”

Hi my name is Lita and I am a schnauzer mix. I am a one person dog and would do really well with a single female who would smother me with love and attention. I am approximately 4 years old. I really want to be an only dog so I would get all the attention. I love to go for long walks and will greet you with great enthusiasm when you come home. I love to cuddle and would be a very nice bed partner to keep you warm and cozy.

Hi my name is Buddy and that's exactly what I want to be…YOUR BUDDY! I am about 6 1/2 years old.

I am a bit laid back for most of the hours of the day. But I do have to admit that I can get really playful when I want to. My foster family tells me that I play like a gentleman though. I love to touch you with my soft, furry paws to let you know when ‘game-on' is.

I am excellent with the leash and love walks. I am doing my dirty business outside in the grass now and everyone around me thinks that's pretty cool. I am even learning how that mysterious hole in the door works (my foster brother and sister go in and out of it all the time).

I am very soft to touch and I love to be touched. I enjoy sleeping in my crate during day or night, but I would rather be in bed with you cuddling (if you let me).

I have all my shots and am HW negative and am neutered.

I love my foster family, especially the kids who are 7 & 9 years old. I don't like to lick but I do like to give butterfly kisses, you know…when I touch you with my beard and smell your nose and lips.

I would make the perfect gentleman companion for almost any type of family but I would prefer to have the kids over the age of 5.

 
 
FEMALE: ADULT

Hi my name is Missy and I am a special needs dog. My foster family thinks that I am one of the smartest schnauzers that they have ever seen. I am totally blind, but you will have a hard time telling that I can't see.  Once I get to know the setup in the house, and that doesn't take long, I can find my way around no problem. I even use the doggie door.  I am almost 9 years old and very loving. I probably do not need any young children running around or any other dogs. I am living with five other foster siblings right now, but I would much rather be by myself and get all the attention. My foster mom thinks that an older person or couple would be good for me. I would love to cuddle up with you, so please pick me.
