—Rescued Dogs In New Homes 2024

California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue re-homed about 9 Miniature Schnauzers and other dogs during 2023.

In addition, CMSR helped pull, transport and/or vet many 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. CMSR also helped fund the expenses for some Schnauzers and other dogs who were rescued by other rescues, whose expenses the rescues could not have afforded without CMSR's help.

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.

8 Dogs Adopted in 2024

Rescue Miniature Schnauzer Heidi

Heidi is a 12 year old Miniature Schnauzer who needed a new home because her owner was no longer able to care for her when she developed diabetes because his job did not allow him to be home enough to give her insulin injections at regular 12 hour intervals.

Heidi is a great dog who loves people, other dogs, and cats. She is housebroken and well behaved.

Heidi is in good health, apart from her diabetes. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Her owner has agreed to cover Heidi's medical expenses for the rest of her life.

Heidi was adopted on July 20, 2024 by a couple from Tucson, AZ, who have another diabetic Miniature Schnauzer. Thanks very much to Brynn Lavison, Animal Services Supervisor at Mission Viejo Animal Services for reaching out to us about Heidi.

Bob and Ray need to be rehomed due to medical reasons in the owners' family. They are good with other dogs and children. They get very excited and jumpy when someone comes in the house but settle down pretty quickly. They might be a little much for toddlers though as they might knock toddlers down.

Bob and Ray know basic commands and are kennel trained. When their leashes are presented, they get excited but calm down after a little walk.

Bob and Ray are doing very well with their foster mom's two dogs. While they go in their kennel happily, they would rather sleep with their humans and sit on their laps too. We're working more on the “off” command. “Sit” is good, but “stay” needs some work. They take treats very nicely and are food motivated. They are not big on toys. While they're potty trained, they need to be let out at least 4 times a day. They get excited when told “let's go outside so go potty.” They have not pottied in their crates. They are getting training to use doggie doors now, but that is going slowly.

The boys are very bonded. It would be wonderful if they could both be adopted by the same family, but that isn't mandatory. There is a good sized dog bed that goes with them.

Bob and Ray are fully vetted, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Their full medical records come with them.

Bob and Ray were adopted on July 21, 2024 by a family in Sacramento. They will enjoy lots of attention since they will be the family's only pets.

Bucky and his half-brother Bandit needed new homes because their owner's job had changed and she was going to be travelling much of the time. Bucky is about 12 months old. He weighs about 25 lbs.

Bucky is housebroken and responds to simple commands. Bucky is housebroken and good with adults, and responds to simple commands.. He is afraid of strangers but warms up to them after an hour or two. Bucky and Bandit enjoy each other's company but probably can be placed separately.

Neither Bucky nor Bandit are good with children, but both are okay with other dogs once properly introduced.

Bucky has no medical problems. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all of his vaccines.

Bucky was adopted on June 28, 2024 by a couple from Woodland Hills. He joins a Labrador mix and a cat who will be his new companions.

Rescue Miniature Schnauzer Ace

When his senior guardian passed away six years ago, Ace went to live with her daughter. The daughter is also a senior and has been struggling with worsening Alzheimer's disease. When she could no longer care for little Ace, we arranged for our friends at Peace of Mind Dog Rescue to find a new loving forever homes for Ace and his brother Coal.

Ace is a 13 year old purebred male, salt and pepper, Miniature Schnauzer. He weighs 15 lbs. Ace has natural ears and a docked tail.

Ace's favorite job is “lap warmer.” He is the perfect size to warm your whole lap, but not heavy enough to make your legs fall asleep! Ace is a very mellow boy and loves his naps. He is starting to lose some of his hearing as he ages, which make his naps even more relaxing, as noises don’t wake him up so easily any more!

Ace appears to be in good health. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Ace has had regular vet care all his life, including annual dental exams, and has had some teeth pulled. Ace has lived with other dogs and been around children without any issues. We're not sure how he does with kitties.

Thanks very much to our friends atPeace of Mind Dog Rescue for finding Ace and Coal a wonderful new home together.

Rescue Miniature Schnauzer Coal

When his senior guardian passed away six years ago, Coal went to live with her daughter. The daughter is also a senior and has been struggling with worsening Alzheimer's disease. When she could no longer care for Coal we arranged for our friends at Peace of Mind Dog Rescue to find a new loving forever homes for Coal and his brother Ace.

Coal is a 9 year old purebred male, black and silver, Miniature Schnauzer. He weighs 18 lbs. Coal has natural ears and a docked tail.

Although Coal gets along well with other dogs, he would love a home with a person he can call his own. He currently lives with other pups, but he prefers getting attention from and playing with humans. He would do best with humans over 15 years old, since the unpredictability of littler ones can scare him.

A charming and well trained gentleman, Coal has a playful, silly side to offset his formal appearance. He loves his squeaky toys and is never one to say no to a game of fetch! Typical for his breed, Coal likes to say hello to other dogs and guests by barking, but is friendly and likes to say hi with sniffs after alerting those around him to a new friend arriving in the vicinity!

Coal appears to be in good health. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He has had a few teeth removed. He has had annual dental exams, and has no known health problems.

Thanks very much to our friends atPeace of Mind Dog Rescue for finding Ace and Coal a wonderful new home together.
