Corinne is a very sweet approximately 1-1/2 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 is being fostered in La Cañada. If you would like to adopt Corinne, please submit a completed Adoption Application form. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us with any questions about Corinne.

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 is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.

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.

Rescue Jack Russell Terrier Puppies

Three purebred female Jack Russell Terriers are looking for a new home. As of February 4, they are 11 weeks old and have received their 2nd set of vaccinations.

Photo of Rescue Jack Russell Terrier Puppy

We prefer only adopters within the LA area as the girls still need more vaccinations and must be spayed.

Adopters must be aware of the high energy level of the breed and ready to take them on hikes or long active walks. Adopters might also consider training the puppies for agility competitions or other ways of burning off excess energy.

The puppies appear to be in good health.

The puppies are being fostered in Los Angeles. Please contact Ed at edmalexa@aol.com or 818 917-3634 for more information about the puppies.

Rescue German Shepherd Hannah

This is Hannah, a loving 7 year old German Shepherd in good health. Hannah needs a new home since her previous owner passed away.

Hannah is so gentle and good with other dogs that the Downey Shelter used her as a greeter to test the temperament of dogs coming into their system.

Hannah would be a loving, devoted and calming presence in someone’s life. Someone will do themselves a great service and enhance their life by rescuing this dog.

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

Rescue Schnauzer Skrappy Sox

Skrappy Sox is a purebred Miniature Schnauzer who was surrendered to us by his owner. He is about 6 years old and weighs about 23 lbs. He has natural ears and an undocked tail.

Skrappy Sox's former owner said he nipped one of her kids. We can only guess what the kid was doing to provoke Skrappy because he has been a perfect gentleman since he has been with us. He is very friendly with people and gets along with other dogs. We haven't had him around cats or young kids.

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

Skrappy Sox is now with A Home 4 Ever Rescue in Costa Mesa. If you are interested in adopting Skrappy Sox, please email Mark at ahome4ever@gmail.com or Erin at muellenbergerin@gmail.com.

Rescue Schnauzer Daisy Mae—Adoption Pending

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Daisy Mae Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is a white Miniature Schnauzer. She will be 3 years old in February. She has a docked tail and natural ears.

Daisy Mae is housebroken and uses a doggy door. She will need some training to establish boundaries and learn basic commands.

Daisy Mae was adopted by her previous owner a few months ago. She was not a good fit because she is does not like young children and her prior owner has grandkids who visited frequently.

Daisy Mae is friendly, and loves to be petted.

Daisy is good with other dogs, but was recently bitten by a bigger dog. As a result, she is somewhat cautious around larger dogs. Daisy Mae will defensively nip or bite when she is afraid or fears that she will be hurt. She also needs a professional groomer who can handle and teach her that she will not be hurt. We would prefer to adopt this little girl to someone who has experience with dogs.

Daisy Mae appears to be in good health. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.

Daisy Mae is with our friends at Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of San Diego. Please contact Lita Giminez at 619-661-6444 if you are interested in adopting Daisy Mae.

This is a courtesy listing for Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of San Diego, which furnished the above information about Daisy Mae. CMSR has not seen or evaluated Daisy Mae.

Dogs In the Phoenix, AZ Area

Rescue Schnauzer Denny (now elderly)

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Denny

We rescued Denny from the San Bernardino County shelter at Devore where he and many other dogs had been taken after being seized from a hoarder situation. He was a hairy mess with skin problems when we got him, but medicated baths, good food, lots of love, and skilled grooming have brought him around to the gorgeous dog in the photo. Denny has natural ears and a docked tail.

Denny is a white Miniature Schnauzer. He is about average size for a male Miniature Schnauzer. The shelter said Denny was snappy but he has been good with us and allowed the Nagels to groom him.

Denny seems to get along well with other dogs.

Denny has become older and somewhat arthritic since we rescued him, but otherwise seems to be generally in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and has had a dental done.

Denny is now with our friends at Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue in Phoenix, AZ. They are looking for a hospice/foster situation for Denny. If you would like to help Denny, please contact Valley of the Sun at phxgsrescue@hotmail.com or 602 212-6775 (voice mail only)

Rescue Dog Smokey (may bite)

Photo of Rescue Dog Pepper Photo of Rescue Dog Pepper

Smokey is a black and gray terrier mix, who is about 2 years old. We rescued Smokey from the San Bernardino City shelter. He weighs about 13 lbs.

Smokey is a bit on the timid side, but is very affectionate once he gets to know you. He gets along with other dogs. We have not had him around cats or young children yet.

We think Smokey would likely be best in an adults-only home or one with teenagers.

Smokey appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and current on his DA2P vaccination. He will be up to date on his rabies vaccination before placement.

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