Dogs In the Metropolitan Los Angeles Area

Rescue Schnauzer Toby

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Toby Photo of 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 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 if you have any questions about Toby.

Rescue Papillon Mix Twiggy

Twiggy is a 1– 1/2 year old Papillon mix. She weighs 7 lbs.

Twiggy is a little firecracker—a huge personality in a tiny body. Twiggy is energetic and funny. She will chase her tail at full speed, and will mimic a police siren when she hears it. She is a complete entertainment package! But Twiggy is also crate trained. She will nap and sleep happily in her crate.

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

Twiggy is being fostered in Los Angeles. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344 if you have any questions about Twiggy.

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

Rescue Schnauzer Allen

Allen is a friendly salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer. Our vet estimates his age at 4 to 5 years old.

Allen is friendly with people. He would be best as an only dog.

Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue in Phoenix recently agreed to place Allen for us because they thought they could place him faster than we could. Allen's Phoenix foster says: "He is cute and so far really good. He is kennel trained,  leash trained, and house trained.  He loves people."

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

Allen is now with Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue in Phoenix, AZ. Please complete a Valley of the Sun Adoption Application at https://www.vsgiantschnauzerrescue.org/adoption-application if you'd like to adopt Allen.

Rescue Dog Smokey (may bite)

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 if you have any questions about Smokey.
