Katy 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.

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.

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.

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 gets along well with other small dogs, but chases cats.

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

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.

Rescue Schnauzer Denny (now senile)

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 (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.
