Rescue Lhasa Mix Archie—Adoption Pending

We rescued Archie from the Riverside County shelter where he had arrived with a serious heart defect called PDA (patent ductus arteriosis)—a vein in the heart that allows much of the blood to be shunted around the circulatory system. It is supposed to close at birth, but did not in Archie's case. The solution is to close off the vein. It used to be done by open heart surgery. Now it is done by inserting a plug in a catheter which is inserted in a vein in the leg and then threaded up to the heart. The new technique is much less invasive, but no less expensive. Archie is the most expensive dog we have ever rescued! But he is a sweet boy and he was definitely worth saving.

Archie's surgery was done on April 26, 2017. It is recommended that he have another echocardiogram in about 3 months, but so far he seems to be doing great.

Archie is about 3 years old. He weighed 16 lbs at the shelter but was almost emaciated. A normal weight will probably be about 20 lbs.

Archie is quiet, but loves to cuddle and be petted. He is good with other dogs.

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

Archie is being fostered in Napa. If you would like to adopt Archie, please submit a completed Adoption Application form. Contact Mary Alford (schnauzer@dslextreme.com) with any questions about him.

Rescue Schnauzer Swiffer

Swiffer is a 10 year old Miniature Schnauzer who weighs about 20 lbs. We rescued her from the Orange County shelter and sent her to our friends at Peace of Mind Dog Rescue where we knew she would get the care she needed and have the best chance of finding a great new home.

Swiffer is lively and exuberantly friendly. She loves the company of other dogs and wiggles her tiny tail with happiness when she makes a new friend. She's quite social and easy to love.

Swiffer is missing some hair, as she has some skin issues that are being treated. She is overweight and will need help losing her belly, which shouldn't be hard with good nutrition and exercise. She has lots of pep in her step and will make a good companion for a walk in the woods.

If you would like to adopt Swiffer, please contact Peace of Mind at peaceofminddogrescue.org or call (831) 718-9122

Rescue Schnauzer Laney

Laney is an 8 year old Miniature Schnauzer who weighs 20 pounds. We rescued Laney from the Riverside shelter and sent her to our friends at Peace of Mind Dog Rescue where we knew she would get the care she needed and have the best chance of finding a great new home.

Laney is a great girl. She is kind and social with other dogs and is handled well by people. She enjoys attention and needs some TLC. She is in vet care and will have a bad eye examined further and potentially enucleated. She will also have some mammary masses removed. Laney will be good to go to an adopter where her personality will shine and she can brighten a home.

If you would like to meet Laney or adopt her then please call Peace of Mind at (831) 718-9122 or fill out a Peace of Mind adoption application at peaceofminddogrescue.org.
