Dogs In the Metropolitan Los Angeles Area

Rescue Schnauzer Mix Foxy

Foxy is a nice, friendly Schnauzer / Terrier mix. She is about 4 to 5 years old and weighs about 35 lbs. We rescued Foxy from the Los Angeles County Carson shelter. Foxy is dark gray with a white patch on her chest.

Foxy was emaciated when we first got her and had notable weakness in her hindquarters, but there was no injury visible on her xrays. Our vet recommended taking her home, getting her up to normal weight, and see whether the weakness was getting worse, getting better or staying the same. She added that there would likely be some improvement as Foxy gained weight and muscle mass.

Dr. Hart was right. Foxy is now able to run around the yard and play with the other dogs. The only sign of problems is that she slips when making a quick turn on a relatively slick surface (a painted concrete patio).

Foxy appears to be in good health, although her teeth have been worn down, perhaps from chewing on rocks. She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

Foxy is being fostered in La Cañada. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Foxy. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us if you have any questions about Foxy .

Rescue Schnauzer Connie

Connie is a really sweet senior Miniature Schnauzer with cropped ears and a docked tail. We rescued Connie from the City of Corona Animal shelter. The shelter listed her as being 15 years old but we and our vet estimate her age at 12 to 13 years old.

Connie loves people and other dogs. She also loves to eat. Connie limps a little due to an old badly repaired fracture of her right femur. Our vet recommends leaving it alone due to Connie's age since Connie does not seem to be in pain.

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

Connie is being fostered in La Cañada. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Connie. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us if you have any questions about Connie.

Rescue Schnauzer Jackson

Jackson is an 8 year old black Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. He weighs about 19 lbs. We rescued Jackson from the San Diego Humane Society shelter in Escondido. His owners, who adopted him from a friend, dumped Jackson at the shelter because they travel often and did not wish to pay for boarding any more.

Jackson is friendly with people, indifferent to children, and gets along with other dogs. He does well when being groomed. However, he is hesitant with strangers and could do with more socialization.

Jackson is in generally good health but has a heart murmur, suffers from arthritis and needs a dental. Jackson is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. He will be neutered before placement unless our vet believes doing so is inadvisable.

Jackson is being fostered in La Cañada. Please submit a completed Adoption Application form if you'd like to adopt Jackson. Contact John Hoffman at cmsr@johnehoffman.us if you have any questions about Jackson.

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. He is generally 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 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.
