—Rescued Dogs In New Homes 2019

California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue re-homed about 30 Miniature Schnauzers and other dogs during 2018. In addition, we helped pull, transport and/or vet many more dogs for out of town rescues. Most of these were dogs who were about to be euthanized if the out of town rescues had not agreed to take them.

We thank our volunteers, our fosters, our donors, and our partner rescue groups. Without their wonderful help, many of those dogs would have died instead of enjoying their lives in great new homes.

13 Dogs Adopted in 2019

Rescue Schnauzer Mix Corinne

Corinne is a very sweet approximately 1-1/2 year old tan Miniature Schnauzer mix, who we rescued from the Chula Vista shelter. Corinne weighs about 15 lbs.

Corinne is a quiet but friendly girl who gets along well with people and with other dogs. We do not know how she is around cats since we don't have any cats to test her on.

Corinne had a broken scapula. We took her to our surgeon who said the scapula was healing well and that Corinne did not need any special treatment. He was correct. Corinne now runs and jumps as though she had never had an injury.

Corinne is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She is eating well.

Corinne was adopted on May 13, 2019 by husband and wife physicians from the Palm Springs area. Corinne joins a male Schnoodle, Winston, who was lonely without his companion, Penny, who passed away a few months ago. Corinne's adopters kindly made a donation to CMSR in memory of Penny.

Rescue Terrier Mix Tanto

We rescued Tanto from the Corona shelter where he was taken when his owner died. Tanto is about 6 years old and weighs about 18 lbs.

We currently have Tanto with a trainer who has a record of success in socializing frightened dogs. Tanto gets along with other dogs. He can go to a home with another friendly dog, but would likely be best in a quiet home without children.

Tanto appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccinations.

Tanto was adopted in mid-April 2019, just in time to celebrate Easter or Passover in his new home. Thanks very much to A Home 4 Ever Rescue in Costa Mesa for finding Tanto his new home.

Fritz is an outgoing Miniature Schnauzer who is about 8 years old. We rescued Fritz from the San Diego County shelter in Bonita. Fritz weighs about 18 lbs.

Fritz is pretty lively for his age. He likes people and other dogs. We have not had him around cats.

Fritz seems to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Fritz was adopted on April 14, 2019 by a gentleman from Vista. He has another Schnauzer to play with Fritz.

Rescue Wheaten Corey

Corey is a super friendly small Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, who we rescued from the Chula Vista shelter, which thought he was a Schnauzer. The shelter estimated his age at 1, which appeared to be accurate. He is now between 2 and 3 years old. He is about 16" tall and weighs about 18 lbs.

Cory had a fractured pelvis when we rescued him. He had surgery done and was fully healed before we placed him in 2017. Corey needs a new home now because his adopter is going into a care facility.

Corey is simply a great dog. He appears to be housebroken and he loves both people and other dogs. He seems very intelligent and loves to play. His only fault is that he can be a bit noisy when he is bored and wants to play.

Corey appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Corey was adopted on April 7, 2019.

Rescue Schnauzer Mirae

Mirae is a sweet 7 or 8 year old Miniature Schnauzer. She weighs 6.8 kg (15 lbs).

Mirae's family left her at a kill shelter in Seoul Korea one day. Mirae was heartbroken. She didn’t eat or sleep over a week, waiting for her family to return. Jennifer Michael, Korean rescuer extraordinaire, couldn’t let Mirae starve herself like that, so she rescued Mirae.

Mirae is healthy and now finally eating with tail wags ❤️. Jennifer asked us to take Mirae and find her a great new home. How could we say no?

Mirae loves people and other dogs. We have not had her around cats.

Mirae was adopted by a family from La Cañada, CA in March 2019. She joins 3 other dogs adopted from CMSR: Scarlett, Richie, and Sabrina.

Mateo liked other dogs but was very afraid of people. We placed him with trainer extraordinaire Mark Seltzer who worked on socializing Mateo.

Mateo appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Mateo was adopted on March 3, 2019. Thanks very much to our friends at A Home 4 Ever Rescue in Costa Mesa for finding Mateo his new home.

We took Leroy to our wonderful trainer, Mark Seltzer, who renamed him Billy Idol, and helped him build his self-confidence.

Billy Idol is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Gambler was adopted on March 3, 2019. Thanks very much to our friends at A Home 4 Ever Rescue in Costa Mesa for finding Billy Idol his new home.

Rescue Schnauzer Bernadette

Bernadette is a very sweet senior Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the San Diego County shelter in Bonita. The shelter estimated Bernadette's age at 10, but we and our vet think she is more likely 7 to 8 years old. Bernadette weighs about 16 lbs.

Bernadette is quiet and friendly. She gets along well with people and with other dogs. She wanted to greet all the dogs at the vet's office when we took her for a checkup and dental. We do not know how she is around cats since we don't have any cats to test her on. However, she did not react to cats in carriers at the vet's.

Bernadette has some hair loss in front of her tail. We tested her thyroid levels and they were normal. Our vet suspects that the hair loss came from a flea infestation and will grow back.

Bernadette apears to be in good health. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She is eating well.

Bernadette was adopted on February 15, 2019 by a couple from Yorba Linda who have owned Schnauzers before. She is their only dog and will have their full attention.

Rescue Schnauzer Gambler

We rescued Gambler in mid-December 2018. We think he is about 6 years old. He weighs about 25 lbs, but a better weight for him would be about 20 to 21 lbs.

Gambler loves to ran around with other dogs and is super friendly. He goes right into a crate on his own and snoozes or just relaxes. He walks nicely on a leash. He knows “sit” and “shake”.

Gambler appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. We had a dental done on him.

Gambler was adopted, together with Bailey, on January 20, 2019, by a family in Napa, who had adopted from us before. Bailey and Gambler now have two human boys to play with. They also have a pet chicken. (Bailey is on the left in the photo, and Gambler on the right.)

Rescue Schnauzer Bailey

Bailey is a 4 year old salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer. She weighs 17 pounds.

Bailey loves to play. She has been socialized with people, children, and other dogs since she was young. However, she has never been around cats and will bark at them if they run along the fence.

Bailey is crate trained and uses a doggie door. She loves to play but is not much for cuddling. She loves playing fetch the ball. She will bring the ball back to you and drop it. She also likes chew toys but they must be strong ones or they won’t last.

Bailey appears to be in good health. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Bailey was adopted, together with Gambler, on January 20, 2019, by a family in Napa, who had adopted from us before. Bailey and Gambler now have two human boys to play with. They also have a pet chicken.

Rescue Schnauzer Mix Howard (now Freddy)

Howard is a sweet Miniature Schnauzer mix, who we rescued from the Hesperia shelter. The shelter estimated Howard's age as 8 but we think he is more like 6 years old. He weighs about 12 lbs. He is somewhat hard of hearing.

Howard is a quiet little guy but he loves people and other dogs. We have not had him around cats.

Howard is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. His teeth are nice and white since we just had his teeth cleaned.

Rescue Schnauzer Katy

Katy is a very sweet 1-1/2 to 2 year old purebred Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Kern County shelter in Bakersfield. Katy weighs about 13.5 lbs. Sadly, Katy had a broken leg as a result of having been hit by a car. We were hoping to save her leg, but her leg had been amputated at the shelter. Katy is able to walk on her remaining 3 legs and is now able to keep up with the 4-legged dogs at her foster home.

Katy is a quiet but friendly girl who gets along well with people and with other dogs.. We do not know how she is around cats since we don't have any cats to test her on.

Katy is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She is eating well.

Katy and Robin were adopted together by a family from Phoenix, AZ on January 5, 2019, which is great as they had become close friends during their stay with CMSR. Thanks very much to Tina Baker and Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue for arranging their adoptions and for transporting them to Phoenix for us.

Rescue Schnauzer Mix Robin

Robin is a sweet Miniature Schnauzer mix. He is about 1 year old and weighs 5.8 kg (13 lbs.).

Robin was about to be euthanized at a Korean shelter because he had heartworm. We were asked to save Robin and we said yes. We had his heartworm treated in Korea, and he has tested clear after we got him.

Robin loves people and other dogs. We have not had him around cats.

Robin is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. We have also had his teeth cleaned.
