—Rescued Dogs In New Homes 2022

Even with life being largely shut down because of COVID-19 for most of the year, California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue re-homed about 18 Miniature Schnauzers and other dogs during 2021. There were very few Schnauzers in California shelters after COVID-19 hit. As a result, we rescued a number of Schnauzers from China. They were nice, easy to place dogs, but it was very expensive to hve them flown from China, which necessitated a big fund-raising effort. We ae immensely grateful to all those who made donations to make the rescues possible. Sadly, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control suspended imports of dogs from a number of countries, including China, after a dog with rabies arrived from a Middle Eastern country—even though no dog is known to have ever arrived in the U.S. from China.

In addition, CMSR helped pull, transport and/or vet many large 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.

7 Dogs Adopted in 2022

Rescue Miniature Schnauzer Heidi

Heidi is a sweet, about 10 year old, Miniature Schnauzer who was surrendered to us a few months ago because her owner died.

Heidi has been with a foster for a few months. The foster was planning to adopt Heidi but decided against doing so because Heidi has begun to bark at the dog in the next yard, resulting in complaints from a neighbor who does not like dogs.

Heidi is friendly with people and gets along with other dogs.

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

Heidi was adopted on May 28, 2022 by a family from Thousand Oaks, CA. They have a white Schnauzer named Gwen who was looking for a new companion after her companion passed away.

Rescue Miniature Schnauzer Willow

Willow is an about 2 year old white Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the L.A. County Palmdale shelter. Willow has natural ears and tail. She weighs about 20 lbs.

Willow is friendly with people and gets along with other dogs, but she is pretty adamant that she gets first dibs on any food.

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

Willow was adopted on April 10, 2022 by a family from Porter Ranch. Her adopters are home most of the time, which will be a bonus for Willow who loves being with people.

Rescue Schnauzer Mya

Mya is a 7 year old white Miniature Schnauzer who was surrendered to us because her owners in Grass Valley were going into assisted living and could not take her there.

We placed Mya with one of our long-time fosters who fell in love with Mya and decided to adopt her.

Rescue Schnauzer Sam

Sam is a cute little guy we rescued from the San Bernardino County shelter in Devore. The Devore shelter estimated his age as 5 years old, but we think he is probably between 3 and 4 years old. Sam is white. He has natural ears and tail.

Sam is a happy dog who loves people who will play with him. He gets along well with other dogs. He is so affectionate that he will even leave his food to be with his person if his person starts to leave the room. Sam loves to cuddle up with his person, lick his person's face, and be petted. He even likes strangers. He does not bark much.

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

Sam was adopted on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2022, by a lady from Eureka who has owned Schnauzers before. She lives next door to her daughter, who has a small dog with whom Sam can play.

Rescue Schnauzer Perry

Perry is an 1 year old, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who was rescued from the Carson shelter in December 2021. His adopter, who was in the military, was then deployed. Since the adopter could not keep Perry, the adopter's family turned Perry over to CMSR. Perry has natural ears and a curly undocked tail.

Perry's shelter name was Periwinkle, which we shortened to Perry. In honor of Perry's shelter name, we have put the heading on Perry's listing in Very Peri, Pantone's color of the year for 2022.

Perry is a happy guy who loves people who will play with him and gets along well with other dogs.

Perry appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and has been recently groomed.

Perry was adopted on March 6, 2022, by a family in Studio City. They have a black Schnauzer named Benji, who recently lost his companion of many years. Benji and Perry hit it off immediately, wrestling and chasing each other around the yard.

Rescue Schnauzer Bandit

Bandit is a salt & pepper male Miniature Schnauzer, who has natural ears and an undocked tail.

The shelter estimated Bandit's age at 5, but based on his sparkling white teeth and his high energy level, we think Bandit is more likely about 2 years old. In any event, this guy is all puppy!

Bandit has a lot of energy and would make a great buddy for hiking, playing fetch in the yard, and lots of walks around the neighborhood. He loves to play with toys and is always up for any adventure.

Bandit is super friendly but is still learning the ways of the world, so he needs someone who will engage with him, set boundaries for him, and spend time helping him learn. Bandit is eager to learn and ready to grow into the perfect pup, but this will take time, patience, and training—his new person must be up for this.

Because of his high energy level, Bandit would do best in an adult-only home.

Bandit is a handsome boy. Unfortunately, the shelter shaved him down because he was matted. He will look even more handsome when his beard and leg hair grow back and he is properly groomed.

Bandit is initially nervous with strangers but warms up quickly once he gets to know you. He loves to give kisses and loves to play. Bandit also enjoys the company of other friendly small dogs.

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

Bandit was adopted on January 28, 2022 by a couple in San Leandro. The adopters have another dog who will love having Bandit to play with.

Rescue Schnauzer Dylan

Dylan is an 11 year old, salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer, who was rescued from the Downey shelter by his current owner. He has natural ears and a docked tail. Dylan needs a new home because his owner has cancer and soon will be unable to care for him.

Dylan was raised with another rescue Schnauzer. He has been around neighborhood children, elderly people, and dogs coming to stay a few days . Dylan may bark at other dogs when walking but he is only being protective of his owner . Dylan likes toys, and he loves going for walks and playing in a garden. Most of all, he enjoys playing with or sitting around his human.

Dylan will come with all his worldly possessions: dog beds, treats, food and container, doghouse, etc.

Dylan appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and has been recently groomed.

Dylan was adopted on January 22, 2022 by a family from Beverly Hills, who have had Schnauzers before. Dylan will be their only dog, so he will get plenty of attention.
