Sasha is a 2 to 3 year old Miniature Schnauzer. She weighs about 6.7 kg (14.7 lbs). Sasha was rescued from a high kill shelter in Daegu, Korea just hours prior she was scheduled to be euthanized.

Sasha is friendly, housetrained, and gets along with kids and with other dogs. We do not know how she is with cats.

Sasha appears to be in good health. She is spayed and current on vaccinations. We will have her microchipped before placement.

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

Pete is a very, sweet white Miniature Schnauzer who is about 5 years old. We rescued Pete from the Inland Valley shelter in Pomona. 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 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 Mini-Doodle Dino

Photo of Rescue Mini-Doodle Dino Photo of Rescue Mini-Doodle Dino

Dino is a 1 year old pretty timid mini-Doodle with stunning amber eyes! Dino is a tall, still skinny pup who weighs about 17 lbs.

Dino was kept pretty much locked up in a backyard with very little interaction and socialization. He would probably do best in a stable, loving home where he will be able to blossom! An adult-only home with a backyard would likely be best.

Dino used to live with Schnoodle Frankie but we believe his personality and social skills might develop better without the shield of his pal. But we'd also be very happy to see them adopted together.

Dino is healthy. He is neutered, microchipped,and fully vaccinated.

Dino is being fostered in Los Angeles. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344 for more information about Dino.

Frankie has spent most of his life in a back yard with his pal Dino.

Frankie needs a calm, loving home that will allow him to discover what life can be as a pampered fluff!

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

Frankie is being fostered in Los Angeles. Please contact Virginie Haudrechy at virginiehaudrechy@yahoo.com or 310 200-4344 for more information about Frankie.

Annie is a 5 month old female, half Llasa, half terrier mix. It is estimated that she will weigh 15–18 lbs as an adult.

Annie is very loving and a typical puppy in every way.  She loves everyone she meets (she is quite the licker) and loves to play with other dogs.

Annie's left eye had to be removed on May 14 due to a birth defect (partially hidden by the dark area on her face). However, she sees perfectly with her right eye. Annie has recovered and is ready to find a loving forever home.

Annie is housebroken and uses a dog door.

Annie appears to be in good health. She is spayed, is current on her puppy shots, and has been vet checked.

Annie is being fostered in San Diego. Please contact Lita Giminez at 619 661-6444 for more information about Annie.

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 for more information about Smokey.
