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 Tibetan Terrier Giada

We rescued Giada from the South Los Angeles shelter. She weighs about 24 lbs.

Giada had a hard time at the shelter. She shut down and was terrified. But now this beautiful 3 year old Tibetan Terrier girl is opening up again and enjoying people's attention. . . , while playing tag of war with her rescued pals.

Giada will do better in a calm, adults only home where she will settle in smoothly.

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

Giada is being fostered in Lancaster. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344, for more information about Giada.

Rescue Terrier Dazy

Dazy is a cream terrier who we rescued from the East Valley shelter in Van Nuys. Dazy is about 6 years old and weighs about 20 lbs.

Dazy's owner decided to do a “home grooming” to fix 5 years of neglect, just before dumping her at the shelter. Poor Dazy ended up with burns and cuts all over her back. Fortunately, all is healed now.

Dazy has become a loving, happy girl. All she wants is your attention and being petted. And her tail is wagging non-stop!!!

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

Dazy is being fostered in Lancaster. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344, for more information about Dazy.

Rescue Yorkshire Terrier Nicolette

Nicolette is a Yorkshire terrier who is about 3 years old. She weighs about 7 lbs.

Nicolette was abandoned and very neglected when she came into rescue, but after some TLC and full vetting, Nicolette is now a pretty, sweet, and cuddle-craving little girl, although she is still somewhat timid. Nicolette would love to be a tiny lap dog in a calm household.

Nicolette is being fostered in Lancaster. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344, for more information about Nicolette.

Ursula is around 5 years old. She weighs about 14 lbs.

Ursula was abandoned at a dog park with an eye infection. She is now a healthy, happy go lucky personality girl. Ursula is opinionated and fun, but loves cuddles!!! And she will make your daily life “Shih Tzu funny.”

Ursula appears to be in good health. However, she will need once a day moisturizing eye drops. Ursula is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Rescue Schnauzer Denny

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 estimated his age at 7 but we think he is more likely 5 or 6 years old. 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 seems to be generally in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and has had a dental done.

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

Rescue Dog Smokey

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.

Rescue Schnauzer Callie—Adoption Pending

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Callie Callie is a 1 year old female Miniature Schnauzer who needs a new home. She has cropped ears and a docked tail.

Callie is friendly with people she knows. She growls a little and is stand offish when she meets new people, but warms up to them quickly. She gets along with older children but does not like the current owner’s loud and hyper 5 year old child. Callie also does not like the other female dog in the home. Callie tries to play with the owner’s cats but she starts to get rough with them and as a result they do not like her. As a result, Callie would likely be best in a home without small children and without another female dog.

Callie appears to be in good health. She is up to date on vaccinations and will be spayed before placement.

Callie is living in the Riverside area. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Callie. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us for more information about Callie.

The above information has been furnished by Callie's owner. CMSR has not seen or evaluated Callie.

Rescue Schnauzer Henry

Henry is a nice salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer who we rescued from the Inland Valley shelter in Pomona. He weighs about 15 lbs. We think he is about 7 years old He has natural ears and a docked tail.

Henry is friendly and gets along well with other dogs. However, Henry is very afraid of clippers and thus is difficult to groom.

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

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

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.
