It’s All Fun & Games Til Someone Ends Up In A Cone!

This section is dedicated to our Schnauzers who need a little time to heal before they are ready for adoption.  But we want you to know who they are, keep you updated on their progress and, if you can, have you help us to help them by making a donation to help cover their medical expenses!  Check out our ‘Store’ or ‘Help Us’ section to learn how!

Ruby

          

I’m Ruby, a female salt and pepper Miniature Schnauzer who is about ten months old and weighs thirteen pounds with cropped ears and a docked tail. SRT rescued me when my former owner was going to have me put to sleep because he couldn’t afford my vet bills. You see, I have a liver shunt and am going to need some really expensive surgery. I also have megaesophagus and will need to be fed upright for the rest of my life. In spite of everything, I’m very sweet and friendly towards everyone I meet. If you’d like to help me pay my vet bills, you can do so by making a donation at the link http://schnauzerrescuetexas.me/sample-page/help-us/

Brenda – fostered in San Antonio

I’m Brenda, a female salt and pepper Miniature Schnauzer mix who is about ten years old and weighs about twenty-two pounds. I have natural ears and tail. I was just rescued and had to have surgery to repair a very large hernia so I’m going to take a few weeks to recover my strength. In the meantime, my foster mom has me on a diet. So far I’ve shown that I am good with other dogs. I’m house trained with the dog door and am fine in a crate. The groomer said I was perfect. I haven’t been tested around children but since I’m a bit timid, I think I would like children who are older as I think little squeals would scare me. I’ll be ready for adoption soon!

Altuve

          

I’m Altuve and I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer/Poodle mix and I’m about two years old and weighsabout twenty-one pounds. I have natural ears and tail (right now). Unfortunately my tail was broken somehow and the vet has recommended an amputation. That sounds painful, but it hurts now anyway.  I’m not recommended around children so I’ll need an all adult home. As for other dogs, I mostly just ignore them. I’m not used to being groomed, so that was a very scary event for me. I did well at the vet though as I figured out they were there to help me. Now that I am all clean and mat free, my favorite place is on the couch next to you. I’m am crate trained and very close to achieving my house training certificate. I’ll be ready for adoption in a few weeks. In the meantime, if you’d like to help me pay my vet bills, here’s the linkhttp://schnauzerrescuetexas.me/sample-page/help-us/

Tulip – fostered in Franklin, TX

           

I’m Tulip, I’m a female, white Miniature Schnauzer who is about twelve years old and weighs about fifteen pounds. I have cropped ears and a docked tail. I was just rescued and have had a medicated bath and a spa day along with going to see the vet.  The doctor said I need to gain some weight and will need some medicated baths to help my skin improve. My last owners weren’t so good about taking care of me. I really need a nice home where I can regain my strength and just chill out. I’m fine around other dogs and am never aggressive towards anyone. If you can help me,  click the ‘Adopt’ tab, complete your adoption or foster application and put me, Tulip, as a dog of interest.

Ruben – fostered in Shreveport

I’m Ruben, I’m a male, chocolate colored Standard Schnauzer mix who is about four years old and weighs about fifty-five pounds. I have natural ears and tail. I’m house, crate and leash trained, although I do sometimes pull on the leash–especially when I see other dogs. I’m good with children. I also do well with young dogs and will play gently, but not so much with the older ones. I know I need to do better and my foster is working with me. I’ve been to the vet and received a good report card. I’ll be ready for adoption soon, but really need someone willing to work with a trainer on my aggression towards adult dogs.

Mason

Mason - 2     Mason - Adopt     Mason - 1

I’m Mason and I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about four years old and I weigh about eighteen pounds.  Perfect size.  Not too big, not too small! I lost my home due to Harvey and my pal Zena and I are looking for new homes.  Zena found a new home and is now living the good life in Georgia. I get along fine with other dogs. I’m not good around children as I’m a bit nervous and not sure what they are going to do. So a home without children is best. I’m relatively quiet and I enjoy riding in the car. Right now I’m working with a trainer, who I absolutely adore, to help build my confidence so I won’t be so scared meeting new people.  I’m crate trained and I’m completely house trained too.  I should be ready for adoption soon.

Darcy

               

I’m Darcy, I’m a female black Miniature Schnauzer who is about one year old and weighs about ten pounds. I have natural ears and a docked tail. I recently had surgery to repair a broken femur and now have a plate and pins in my back left leg. The injury was an old one, so I’m going to need something called physical therapy so that my leg will work right again after a long time of not using it. I’m a very sweet, friendly girl. I love being curled up next to you. I also love to play tug-o-war with another dog and play, play, play. I am house, crate and leash trained. I’ll be ready for adoption in time for Christmas.
