Dogs In the Metropolitan Los Angeles Area

Rescue Schnauzer Pete

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Pete

Pete is a very, sweet white Miniature Schnauzer who is about 5 years old. We rescued Pete from the Inland Valley shelter in Pomona. The shelter had adopted Pete out, but he was returned. The adopter said he though Pete might have had a seizure. The shelter saw no seizures either before Pete was adopted or after he was returned and we have seen none since we got him. In any event, seizures are usually easily managed with phenobarbital, an inexpensive drug. Pete weighs about 22 lbs.

Pete is a fairly quiet dog, but loves to "scratch out" with abandon after he potties. He seems to get along well with everyone, human or canine. We have not had him around cats yet.

We had Pete's teeth cleaned. No extractions were needed. Pete had a large growth on his butt, which we had removed. We also had blood work done. According to the vet, the results of Pete's blood work were “perfect.” Pete is in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Pete is being fostered in La Cañada. If you would like to adopt Pete, please submit a completed Adoption Application form. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us with any questions about Pete.

Rescue Schnauzer Candy

Candy is a very sweet approximately 10 year old purebred Miniature Schnauzer, who we rescued from the Riverside Coachella shelter near Palms Springs. Candy weighs about 15 lbs.

Candy is a quiet but friendly girl who gets along well with other dogs. We do not know how she is around cats since we don't have any cats.

Candy is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Her teeth were bad when we got her. She had a dental done and lost all but 2 teeth in the process, but we had those two cleaned and polished. Candy is an eager eater. She can eat kibble, but not hard biscuits.

Candy is being fostered in La Cañada. If you would like to adopt Candy, please submit a completed Adoption Application form. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us with any questions about Candy.

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.

We had a dental done. Poor Toby lost most of his teeth, but he is feeling a lot better now, and eating with a lot more gusto than before. He seems a lot younger than 10. We and the vet estimate his age at about 7.

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. He is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Toby has natural ears and a natural tail.

Toby is being fostered in Pasadena. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Toby. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us for more information about Toby.
