—Rescued Dogs In New Homes 2020

California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue re-homed about 38 Miniature Schnauzers and other dogs during 2019. 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.

11 Dogs Adopted in 2020

Rescue Schnauzer Petey

Petey is a 4 1/2 year old pure-bred Miniature Schnauzer. His prior family surrendered Petey to us because they could no longer keep him. Petey weighs about 25 pounds.

Petey's former owner said he nipped one of her children and that she felt it would be best for him to be re-homed. With us, Petey has been super friendly with people and he gets along well with other dogs. We haven't had Petey around cats or young kids, but we think he would be best in a home without young children.

Petey appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations.

Petey was adopted on August 29, 2020 by a couple from Colusa. They have another Miniature Schnauzer and are experienced Schnauzer owners, having had Schnauzers throughout their marriage.

Prince is a 7 year old salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer. He has natural ears and a docked tail. Prince needed a new home because his elderly owners were no longer able to care for him.

Prince loves to cuddle on the bed with his owner. H e is crate and potty trained. He is good about being groomed. Prince is okay with other dogs after proper introduction.

Prince appears to be in good health. Prince is neutered and current on vaccinations.

Prince was adopted on July 6, 2020 by a semi retired dental hygenist in Agoura Hills, CA. He will be her only dog.

Rescue Schnauzer Toby

Toby is a super friendly salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Los Angeles North Central shelter. The shelter had estimated his age at 10, primarily because his teeth were so bad. Toby seemed a lot younger than 10 and must have been, because he has been in his foster home for about 6 years now and is still in pretty good shape for a senior Schnauzer.

We had a dental done on Toby when we got him. Poor Toby lost most of his teeth, but he felt a lot better, and has been eating with a lot more gusto than he did when we got him.

When Toby first saw the back yard at his foster home, he started running around like crazy. He seemed to be thinking: “My gosh, I've gone from the shelter to Club Med!”

Toby loves to play, play, play. He loves his foster mom and he loves to play with the other dogs at his foster home. He will be a great companion to whoever adopts him. Toby always seems to have a smile on his face.

Toby appears to be in good health, but can be incontinent if he does not have ready access to the outdoors. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Toby has natural ears and a natural tail.

Toby was adopted on May 31, 2020 by a family from San Diego. Toby's new family has a 3 year old Schnauzer mix who was lonely since his companion passed away. He is thrilled to have Toby as his new companion and the feeling seems to be mutual.

Rescue Schnauzer Archie

Archie is a 1 year old particolor Miniature Schnauzer. Charlie was surrendered, along four puppies that he fathered, to Southbay Purebred Rescue in San Jose in April 2020. Southbay's President said that she had fostered dozens of Schnauzers over the years and that Archie is one of the nicest she has ever fostered.

Southbay placed the 4 puppies quickly, but was having trouble finding the right adopter for Archie. So, CMSR came to the rescue and found the right adopter for him.

Archie's foster said he is busy and all over the place as a baby Schnauzer should be. However, he is not vocal at home, and he is easy to correct if he barks at another dog when he's out for a walk. Archie loves walks and to play with the other dogs in his foster home. He will also merrily dig in the large water dishes out back, so he comes in with his front legs soaked sometimes.

Archie was adopted by a retired school teacher on May 30, 2020. He will have her full attention since he will be her only dog. Thanks to South Bay Purebred Dog Rescue for rescuing Archie and his puppies. CMSR is glad to have been of help in finding an adopter for Archie.

Rescue Schnauzer Charlie

Charlie is a black Miniature Schnauzer, who is about 11 months old. He is happy, energetic and smart. He has natural ears and a natural tail.

Charlie's present owner found Charlie in the street when he was about 5 months old. He was terrified and shy at first, but quickly grew out of it. Charlie needed a new home since his owner had to move and could take him with her because she has two other older dogs.

Charlie loves other dogs he often gets overexcited when he sees a cat while on a walk. He is potty trained, sits on command or when he thinks he's getting a treat and waits for permission to eat. However, like many dogs, he doesnt always come when he's called. Charlie loves toys, especially heavy duty chew and squeak toys.

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

Charlie was adopted by a family in Carmichael in mid-May 2020. Charlie will have their full attention as he will be an only dog.

Rescue Schnauzer Kate

We rescued Kate from the Contra Costa shelter. She is about 4 years old.

Kate had not been fully examined at the shelter because she was so snappy, but it was evident that she had cataracts and did not see well. The shelter allowed our foster to sit in the run with Kate for a while and Kate started to bond with the foster.

We took Kate for cataract surgery. We wish to thank everyone who donated to help with the cost. Kate now sees well, thanks to her surgeon and to her foster who was diligent with the needed aftercare. We got an excited email from Kate's foster a couple of days after surgery when Kate was able to see and chase a thrown ball.

Kate is in good health. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Kate was adopted on March 19, 2020 by a family from Rancho Murieta who fostered Kate and who have adopted from CMSR before. Kate loves her new family. She is still hesitant with strangers but is growing more self-confident every day. Kate has a Schnauzer friend named Dino to play with in her new home and Dino LOVES Kate!

Rescue Schnauzer Maury

Maury is a sweet, friendly Miniature Schnauzer who we rescued him from the Manteca shelter. He had a severe yeast infection, but that has been treated and cleared up. We think that Maury is about 1 or 2 years of age.

Maury gets along with other dogs and loves to snuggle with his humans. He can be shy at first but once he opens up he's got lots of personality. Maury enjoys going on walks around the neighborhood, trips to the dog park, or any adventures you'd like to take him on. He is a great companion and he's ready for someone to be his new best friend.

Maury is in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Maury was adopted on March 16, 2020 by a family from Sonoma who adopted two dogs from us earlier. Maury will thus have canine friends at home to play with.

Rescue Schnauzer Reggie

Reggie is a super friendly salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Riverside County shelter with a fracture pelvis. We estimate his age at 4–5 years old. He is on the smaller side, weighing about 15 lbs.

Reggie had his surgery done in November 2019. We held off putting him up for adoption because he took a bit longer than normal to heal. He still limps a bit when he gets tired, but he is fully healed. We are advised the limp will probably go away once Reggie redevelops his muscles.

Reggie is a good eater, loves people and attention and gets along well with other dogs.

Reggie appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Reggie has natural ears and a docked tail.

Reggie was adopted on February 22, 2020 by a couple from Modesto who have two female Schnoodles for Reggie to play with.

Rescue Schnoodle Peanut

Occasionally we can find an adopter for a needy dog without the dog coming to us first.

We were contacted by a lady in the Sacramento area who had taken on a Schnoodle and a Mastiff mix who were in bad condition and was trying to find them forever homes. She asked us for help with the Schnoodle she had named Peanut. Peanut is a big love, about 4 or 5 years old. She is spayed, healthy and playful.

We had no fosters at the time, but we had received an application from a wonderful couple for a dog we had already committed to place elsewhere. We asked if they'd be interested in Peanut. They went to see her and adopted her!

Peanut is now living the dream life in San Carlos, with her adopters' male dog as her new companion.

Rescue Schnauzer William III

William III is a nice friendly senior black Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Long Beach shelter. The shelter estimated his age at 10, which is probably about right. William IIIhas cropped ears and a docked tail.

William IIIis friendly and gets along with other dogs. He will be a great companion to someone looking for a quiet older dog.

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

William III was adopted on January 29, 2020 by a family who adopted Olive, a salt & pepper Schnauzer from us about 4 years ago.

Rescue Schnauzer Tommy

Tommy is a super friendly salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who came to us from the streets of Tijuana with the help of Crossing Guardians rescue group. Tommy appears to be about 1 year old.

Tommy loves people and loves other dogs. He regards everyone as a playmate. He is crate trained and housebroken.

Tommy appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. He has natural ears and a natural (long) tail.

Tommy was adopted on January 26, 2020 by a family from Pacifica, CA, who previously adopted Gregory (now Buster) from us. Here is hoping that the two dogs will become fast friends and bring each other a lot of entertainment.
