California Miniature
Schnauzer Rescue
—Rescued Dogs In New Homes 2014

California Miniature Schnauzer Rescue re-homed more than 110 Miniature Schnauzers and other dogs during 2014, including many seniors, many dogs with behavior problems, and more broken limb dogs than we have ever taken in a single year before. The year also featured a new partnership with Hope for Paws, which allowed the two organizations to save several dogs that neither could have saved on their own.

We thank our volunteers, our fosters, and our donors. Without their wonderful help, many of those dogs would have died instead of enjoying their lives in great new homes.

110 Dogs Adopted in 2014

Rescue Schnauzer Oreo

Oreo is a wonderful, energetic 8 year old Miniature Schnauzer. He likes to play and take walks but his favorite pastime would be to follow you everywhere you go and to be right next to you! He is housebroken and in very good health. He gets along with most other dogs but prefers female dogs. Do you have room for him in your bedroom at night?

Oreo is neutered and up to date on immunizations.

Rescue Schnauzers Diamond and Bentley

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Bella

Bentley, 11 years old (in front of photo), and Diamond, 9 years old (in back of photo), were surrendered because of a divorce in the family. Normally, it is tough to find homes for seniors and especially when the goal is to place two together, But Bentley and Diamond lucked out big time. One thing that they had going for them was that they are both housebroken and good with children.

Bentley and Diamond play a lot. They are both incredibly strong, alert, and have good eyesight and hearing.  Diamond has to have Bentley in her sight at all time. If he moves even slightly, she alerts

Bentley and Diamond were adopted on December 6, 2014 by a family from Dayton, NV, where they have fitted in quickly.

Rescue Schnauzer Bella

Bella is a really sweet Miniature Schnauzer who was originally rescued by Hope for Paws. They asked if we could take her and we said “Absolutely”! Bella is about 7 to 8 years old and is of average size for a female Miniature Schnauzer.

Bella loves people and gets along well with other dogs.

Bella is currently wearing an Elizabethan collar because her right front paw is injured and bandaged. She should be fine soon though. Bella needs a dental, as is typical of older Schnauzers. We will have that done soon and will will have her spayed at the same time. Bella has a cataract in one eye but can see well out of her other eye.

Bella appears to be in good health, otherwise. She is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.

The Long Beach shelter, from which we pulled Mateo, described him as a Miniature Schnauzer / Petit Brussels Griffon Vendeen mix. They could be right. In any event, Mateo is a year or less old and weighs about 15 lbs.

Mateo was very scared but not at all growly or snappy when we got him. He let us look him over without complaint, so we expect he will be a happy little guy as soon as he sees he is loved and not in danger. He does like other dogs.

Mateo appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. We also had his retained puppy teeth removed.

She was healed up as of mid-October, with no residual ill-effects.

Bailey is super-friendly. We think she is between 9 months and a year old. She is proof positive that good things come in small packages—in Bailey's case, a package only about 10.5 lbs. Bailey has natural ears and a docked tail.

Pearl is an absolute doll! She is quiet as can be and rarely barks unless she is playing with the ball. She gets along fine with the other dogs at her foster home.

Pearl would be perfect for a retired person and would do well with someone in an apartment or condo. She is content with playing with toys and loves to pull all the toys out of the toy box one by one. A short walk around the block each day is about all the exercise she would need. She loves to cuddle up on your lap.

Pearl currently sleeps in a big dog bed but would LOVE to sleep on her owner's bed.

Pearl is great company and loves to hang out near whoever is in the room. She walks nicely on a leash, and has an excellent recall. If you are out in the yard with her, she sticks close by.

Pearl was adopted on August 29, 2014.

Rescue Schnauzer Lauren

Lauren is a super sweet 8 year old Miniature Schnauzer who weighs 13 lbs. We rescued Lauren from the Lancaster shelter. She has cropped ears and a docked tail.

When we took Lauren to the vet, we learned that she has a Grade 4 heart murmur and cloudiness in her lenses that could be the beginning of cataracts. We were concerned that we would have trouble finding her a suitable adopter because of those problems. As it turns out, we were pulling a senior terrier mix named Hazel from the Baldwin Park shelter the next day for our friends at Muttville in San Francisco. We asked if they'd take Lauren too and they kindly said yes.

Thanks to arrangements made with Pilets and Paws by our friend Alison Doolin, both dogs flew north to San Jose. One of our fosters in northern California kindly, agreed to drive Lauren and Hazel from the San Jose Airport to Muttville.

Lauren was at Muttville less than 24 hours. Our foster fell in love with her while transporting her and went back to Muttville to adopt her the next day, August 25, 2014.

Rescue Schnauzer Maggie

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer MaggiePhoto of Rescue Schnauzer Maggie

Maggie is a purebred Miniature Schnauzer who was about 8 months old as of mid-July 2014. Maggie was adopted from the SEAACA shelter by a couple who both worked there. They surrendered Maggie to us because she had chronic diarrhea and they could not afford the testing to find the cause.

After we got Maggie, we gave her the normal treatments, but they did not solve the problem. We had a number of tests ran, all of which came back negative.

Our vet suggested she might have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, caused by her pancreas failing to to produce enough of the enymes needed to digest food. The treatment is adding enzymes to food. We tried it and Maggie's problem disappeared within a couple of days. However, she will likely need to stay on the enzymes for the rest of her life. (The cost of the enzymes is $135 per kilo, which is more than a 2-year's supply for Maggie.) For more information on the disorder and treatment, see http://www.enzymediane.com/faq.htm

Maggie is an affectionate, happy girl who gets along well with other dogs.

Maggie has natural ears and a docked tail.

Maggie appears to be in good health, apart from the enzyme deficiency. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.

Cooper is a good watch dog, loves car rides, and gently takes treats when they are offered. He becomes very excited when someone comes to the door and wants to get to know them in a very friendly way, then settles down wanting to play. He is smart, but would do well with a little more training regarding jumping on people and walking correctly on lead. Cooper is lovable, good with other dogs and children. He will chase cats, however. Cooper loves attention and has an outgoing personality! He would do well having a fenced yard in which to release some of his energy, and loves to be taken for daily walks.

Rescue "Poosett Hound" Audi

Photo of Rescue Poosett Hound Audi Photo of Rescue Poosett Hound Audi

We are not sure what Audi is. He looks like he could be a Poodle / Basset Hound combo, so we are calling him a Pooset Hound. We rescued Audi from the San Diego shelter which had called him a Schnauzer mix, but he does not appear to us to have any Schnauzer in him. He is about 1 year old. He weighs about 20 to 25 lbs.

Whatever his parentage, Audi is effusively playful and friendly, definitely still a puppy in his outlook. In fact, we had a hard time getting photos of him because Audi is a perpetual motion machine whenever there is someone around who Audi thinks might be willing to play with him. We were able to catch him flying through the air, but the shutter speed wasn't fast enough to freeze him!

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

Audi was adopted on April 8, 2014 where he joins his new girlfriend, Ninja. Rumor is that it was love at first sight. A big thank you to New Beginnings for Animals for finding Audi his new home.

Rescue Dog Sara

Photo of Rescue Dog Sara

Sara is a tiny Schnauzer / Shih Tzu mix who we rescued from the San Bernardino City shelter. She is about 3 years old and weighs about 8 lbs.

Sara was terrified when we got her. She has gotten better but is still nervous around strangers, particularly men, and can be snappy when frightened. However, she is a little doll and very affectionate with people she knows, particularly women. For that reason, we believe she'd be best in a home with a retired woman. Sara does get along with other dogs.

Sara is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

Sara was adopted on April 8, 2014 and will be living in Lincoln, near Sacramento.

PJ is a really cute guy who is about 4 years old. He was a surrender from an owner who could not keep him. PJ weighs between 25 and 30 lbs and is somewhat overweight.

PJ is as sweet and friendly as they come. We couldn't get a good photo of him standing up because as soon as someone is around him, he wants to roll over and have his tummy scratched. PJ gets along with other dogs and appears to be okay with cats. We have not had him around young children yet but we think he would be fine with children who are gentle.

PJ is neutered and up to date on vaccinations, except for rabies. He will be given a rabies shot before placement,

Kyland gets along well with the female mini schnauzer-mix in his foster home. In just a few days Kyland has settled in. He loves affection. He is a happy boy, who wags his tail and likes to play fetch.

Kyland walks fairly well on lead, but pulls a bit in anticipation. He likes meeting new people and appreciates all the attention he can get. We have not had Kyland around cats or children yet. Kyland shows some separation anxiety behavior when left alone at home in his crate, but that behavior seems to be diminishing.

Kyland appears to be house broken and is learning to use the doggie door. He is crate trained, and appreciates a nice comfy doggie bed.

Kyland is neutered, heartworm negative. His canine teeth were scaled (tartar removed). The vet said Kyland would need to have his teeth cleaned at some point, but not immediately.

Kyland was adopted by his foster in mid-March 2014 after he became fast friends with the foster's other dogs. He will be residing in the Auburn area.

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Charlie Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Charlie

This is Charlie, a purebred male neutered Miniature Schnauzer. He is about 6 years old but has the spunk and vigor of a much younger dog.

Charlie is funny, and animated. This boy “LOVES” to play fetch with his ball!!! You could easily exchange this game for walking exercise. You will tire before he does! He also keeps himself very busy playing with his toys!

Charlie is better as a single dog, He does not mind other dogs but has no interest in them and does not play with them at all. He likes cats but will chase them on occasion. He does NOT do well with small children but he loves to play with older children who know how to handle him gently and not pick him up roughly. He is a bit frightened when being handled.

Charlie is a lovely dog, fun to play with, nice to cuddle with. He is kennel trained, house trained, great in the car, and on walks on or off the leash. Good when being groomed as well. He will be sadly missed by his foster when he is adopted.

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Puppy Raylan Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Puppy Raylan

Raylan is a young male Miniature Schnauzer who was found running the streets. He was unkempt, dirty, with masses of tangles and mats in his salt and pepper coat. There were no replies to the many attempts to locate his family, so Schnauzer Rescue took him in.

Raylan is about 9 months old so he is still very much a puppy. He weighs 15.6 lbs., about average for a male Miniature Schnauzer.

Raylan will need all the basic training to be a canine good citizen, and his foster family has already started working with him. He is about 80% housetrained and getting more reliable every day.  He now knows how to use the dog door, is learning how to sit on command, and sleeps in a crate at night. He rides well in a crate in the car.

Raylan is very affectionate and loves to be with people, and curl up by your side. He gets along well with other dogs and would do well in a home with another dog as a buddy. He has now had a makeover at the groomers. Raylan is an absolute doll of a dog who deserves a new forever home.

Raylan appears to be in good health. He is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated,

Raylan was adopted on February 2, 2014 by a family from Danville who has owned Schnauzers before.

Rescue Schnauzer Willi and Puppy Nikki

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Willi Photo of Rescue Dachshund Puppy Nikki

Willi is a sweet, playful purebred female Miniature Schnauzer who is about 2 years old. She is average in size for a female Miniature Schnauzer. Nikki is a young female puppy who is about 3 months old as of January 15. She appears to be a mix of dappled Dachshund and Miniature Pinscher. Our best guess is that Nikki will mature out at less than 10 lbs.

Theirs is a remarkable tale of love and survival. They were dumped at a citrus nursery outside of Bakersfield. The kind people at the nursery put out food for them but it was two weeks before the scared dogs could be caught and brought indoors—and it gets very cold there at night. Willi had a pretty good growth of coat, but Nikki is tiny and has a smooth coat. She would never have survived were it not for Willi taking care of her.

Willi and Nikki appear to be very closely bonded. We will not separate them after what they have been through together. They came as a pair, and we will only place them as a pair. See their videos at https://vimeo.com/83981000 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsFVe5RX02M

Willi and Nikki are both extremely friendly with people and with other dogs. The fact that Nikki's tail is blurred in the photo gives you an idea of how fast she was wagging it!

Both Willi and Nikki appear to be in good health. Willi was dirty and matted when we got her. Nikki was absolutely clean, probably due in large part to Willi's care.

Willi is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Nikki is microchipped and up to date on DA2P and bordatella vaccinations. She will be placed on a spay/neuter agreement.

Willi and Nikki were adopted on January 26, 2014 by a couple from Carlsbad. The wife had formerly owned Schnauzers and the husband had formerly owned Dachshunds. We wish Willi and Nikki long and happy lives together.

Rescue Schnauzer Sulley

Photo of Rescue Schnauzer Mix Izzy Sulley is a 10 year old white Miniature Schnauzer who we rescued from the San Jose Animal Shelter. He has cropped ears and a docked tail.

Sulley quickly found a comfortable niche in his foster home with his two Standard Schnauzer foster brothers. He immediately started showing off his skills and good habits. He is extremely intelligent and can quickly learn new commands in addition to showing off the ones he already knows. He is housebroken and crate trained.

Sulley likes other dogs as well as people, loves to play, take car rides and walks, and is good on a leash. For a 10-year-old he has good energy for walks and a little play time in the backyard. He currently walks about a mile a day with his foster family and plays for about 30 minutes in the backyard with his foster brothers (two 2-year-old Standard Schnauzers). Sulley does not bark much except when he sees another dog when he is on his leash.

Sulley appears to be in good health. Sulley has been neutered. He is current on his vaccinations and has been microchipped.

Sulley was adopted by a family from Aptos on January 17, 2014. He joins an 8 year old Flat Coated Retriever who is quickly becoming Sulley's new best friend.

Miss Daisy (formerly Sophie) is our second rescue of 2014. Miss Daisy is a 1 1/2 year old female Miniature Schnauzer who came into the Bakersfield shelter on December 20, 2013—not a great place to spend Christmas. However, her luck changed quickly. We found out about her on December 31, and later that day received an adoption application from a couple in Bakersfield. We suggested they go see Sophie. As soon as the shelter opened on Jan. 2nd, they were there to adopt Sophie (now called “Miss Daisy”).

Miss Daisy's adopters say she is gentle and loving and playful. She slept peacefully all through her first night at home with them. 

Miss Daisy is pictured with her adopters, leaving the shelter, and at Petco with her slightly belated Christmas gifts.

Rescue Terrier Toby

Photo of Rescue Terrier Toby Photo of Rescue Terrier Toby

Toby is a super friendly terrier mix who we rescued from the Lancaster shelter along with his pal (and likely his brother) Tommy. The shelter estimated Toby's age at 1 year. He weighs 25 to 30 lbs.

Toby loves people and gets along with other dogs. We have not had him around young children but he'd probably be fine with them.

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

Toby was adopted with a nursing student and her mom in San Jose on January 2, 2014.  He will have a Siamese cat for company.

Toby missed watching the 2014 Rose Parade in his new home by one day, but was still adopted quickly enough to be our first placement of 2014.
