  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Snowy is a small Mini who is looking for a great loving home. We think he is about 5 years old, but since he was found running as a stray we can’t be sure. He likes to play, so a canine companion would be great. He is tiny at just over 9 pounds, and has been called an escape artist, so a secure fence is important. He is very social, so a loving, cuddly human is a necessity. He is a little barky, so the ideal home would probably not be an apartment or condo. He is working on changing this bad habit, but he is just so enthusiastic that it will probably take a while and a lot of great treats! He is definitely crate trained, but we are still learning about his housetraining. He just loves chewies. Snowy is neutered, he is up to date on his vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. If you would like to meet Snowy, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption form. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Snowy for a visit.

Gretel is a sweet little mini who is looking for a retirement home. She and her friend Hansel were found in very bad condition running as strays and desperately in need of help. Unfortunately, Hansel was in the end stage of kidney failure and went to the rainbow bridge to wait for Gretel. Gretel is a little shy, but once she gets to know you, she will seek out attention. She loves to sit on the couch and cuddle. She weighs about 16 pounds and seems to be at least crate trained. She is looking for a quiet home with a comfortable bed and good soft food. Gretel is spayed, she is up to date on her shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. Her teeth were in pretty bad shape so we cleaned the good ones and pulled the bad ones! If you would like to meet Gretel, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Gretel for a visit.

Lance had one home from the time he was a puppy, 13 years ago. He is a beautiful gray Mini who weighs about 18 pounds. In the last few years, however, his owner stopped taking him to the vet for routine care. He had a benign tumor on his chest that weighed almost a pound when we removed it, and he is deaf! The owner also said that she thought he had glaucoma. Recently, he bit a 2 year old child in the home and was relinquished to a local shelter. We have no details about the circumstances except that the previous owner stated that it was “unprovoked.” He had not behaved aggressively until the bite and has not behaved aggressively since he has been in rescue, but, of course, he is looking for an adult home. Lance is neutered, he is up to date on his shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. Lance also had his teeth cleaned and cared for while in rescue. If you would like to meet Lance, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Lance for a visit.

Thor is a terrier mix who came from New Mexico, where his time had run out, looking for a safe and loving home. He weighs almost 32 pounds and has a beautiful salt and pepper coat. Growing up as a stray in southern New Mexico, he is heartworm positive. He is being treated for the heartworms. He is a little timid. He didn’t know how to go up and down stairs when he came into rescue, but he learned in only two days! He loves people attention and he is fine with the little Mini Schnauzers that he lives with in his foster home. He doesn’t seem to know what to do with toys or chewy treats, but we are working on that! Thor is neutered, he is up to date on his shots (rabies, distemper, and kennel cough), vet checked and micro chipped. He does have a broken tooth which we will have removed after his heartworm treatment. If you are interested in meeting Thor, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Thor for a visit. Once his broken tooth is removed, he can come and live with his adopted people. In about 7 months we will have him tested for heartworms again to make sure that the treatment was effective. If not, we will retreat him at the rescue’s expense.

Pinkie was in a shelter in Puerto Rico when hurricane Maria headed for the island. Luckily, she was airlifted to the mainland to make room in the shelters for dogs that would get lost in the hurricane. She was flown to a local shelter in Colorado, but after a couple weeks with no interest, they asked rescue to take her in. She is a small terrier mix, not quite 12 pounds. She had been picked up as a stray, so we don’t know much about her. We think that she is about 12 years old. She probably lived as a street dog, but she is very social. She gets along well with people, especially if they give her belly rubs. She is fine with other dogs as long as they don’t get in her face. She is definitely crate trained, but we aren’t sure about her housetraining. She is quiet. Pinkie is spayed, she is up to date on her vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. She does seem to have cataracts, but sees well enough to get around well. If you would like to meet Pinkie, go to www.cominischnazuerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Pinkie for a visit.

Sophie Rose is a sweet little gray mini. She was recently diagnosed with diabetes and her Mom, who works full time, was unable to care for her needs any longer. Sophie is currently in a foster home with a retired couple and she is doing well. Since the diabetes can make her feel that she is always thirsty, Sophie drinks a lot of water and needs a home with a family where someone is available to let her out during the day. She is on a special diet to control her diabetes and does require insulin shots twice each day. She is very accustomed to the routine and is good with the shots. When she came to rescue she also had a huge benign mass on her chest which has been removed. Her incision is healed and she now weighs about 14 pounds. She enjoys her foster home where she has other canine companions and a large fenced in backyard to explore. Sophie Rose is spayed, she is up to date on her vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventive while in rescue, and micro chipped.

Princess is looking for a retirement home and Kato would like to come along! We think she is 12 or 13 years old, she looks like a spaniel mix, and weighs about 18 pounds. She probably was someone’s “Princess” for part of her life because she does like people, but she was running as a stray for a long time based on her matted fur and poor dental health when she was picked up. She was running with Kato when they were picked up by animal control. She is a little timid with people, but she does like the food and treats that they bring! Kato is probably about 6 years old and is a 14 pound mini schnauzer mix. Kato is very fearful of people, but will let his foster pet him and hold him so we are working on building his trust. Princess is spayed and Kato is neutered, they are up to date on their shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. Princess has had her teeth cleaned and cared for while in rescue. If you are interested in meeting Princess and Kato, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the adoption application.

Boomer is a 4 year old Poodle/Lhasa apso mix, we think! He does have the curly poodle hair, and is definitely mixed with some kind of terrier, but he hasn't told us what kind. He is gray and white and weighs a little over 16 pounds. We think he may have had some unpleasant experiences with people, as he can be a little snappy at sudden movements, and is protective when on someone's lap, so he is looking for an experienced adult household. He has been fine in his foster home with a patient foster mom. He likes to be with his person, in fact, even with his short legs, he will climb out of his 3 foot high exercise pen to go and find his foster mom, so he would prefer a family where someone is home most of the time. He is very athletic and will require a high, secure wood fence. He is interested in other dogs, but can be a little choosy about close companions. He was owner surrendered from a bad situation to an out of state shelter. Boomer is neutered, he is up to date on his vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. If you would like to meet Boomer, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Boomer for a visit.

Betty is a 10 year old black schnauzer "wannabe" who is looking for a quiet retirement home. She came from an out of state shelter where she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and put on medication. Our vet is not seeing the usual signs of heart failure on Betty's xrays, but we have continued her medication. We are slowly working with Betty and the vet to determine exactly what medical issues Betty is facing. At 29 pounds, she is a big girl and may benefit from losing some weight, regardless of other medical issues, so that is our first goal. Betty is a sweet, calm girl who loves attention and a soft bed. We would love to find a foster home for her with a doggy door and a large fenced yard for her to wander around in. CAN YOU HELP? Betty is spayed, she is up to date on her shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. If you would like to meet Betty, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete either the adoption application of the foster application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Betty for a visit.

China and her little buddy Syd are hoping to find a forever home together. China is a fluffy little 2 year old female terrier mix of some sort, around 15 lbs, and Syd is a 1 to 2 year old black and tan terrier mix, around 12 lbs. They came from a home in rural western Kansas that was likely a hoarding situation. China is well socialized and loves attention. She gets along well with other dogs and loves belly rubs. She is quiet, but needs some work on her housetraining. She likes to wander around in a fenced yard. Syd is a little timid, although he is getting much braver since he has been with us, but feels much more confident when he is with China. He likes attention and petting once he gets to know you. He adores doing zoomies around a fenced in yard. We have discovered that he loves toys and curling up next to his foster mom on the couch! China is spayed and Syd is neutered, they are up to date on shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. If you would like to meet China and Syd, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the on-line adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring these cuties for a visit.

Brutus and Bronco are 12 year old mini males who are looking for a loving retirement home. Can you help them? They are small little guys at only 14 to 15 pounds each. They love people attention and get along well with other dogs, but their favorite thing is investigating their fenced in backyard. They like to watch the squirrels and rabbits and birds and sniff all the good smells. Their ideal home would have a nice backyard and someone who was home with them most of the time. At their age, they need to get outside to potty often, and Bronco needs some reinforcement wirh his training. Brutus & Bronco are both neutered, up to date on shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. Their senior blood panels indicate that everything is mostly within normal limits. If you would like to meet these boys, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the adoption application.

Jade is still a puppy at barely a year old. She needs someone to help her learn how to be a great little dog. Jade came into rescue from a local shelter. She was relinquished by her owner because she was too active. In the shelter she was fearful of other dogs, so they asked rescue to take her in. She is doing much better in her foster home. Her tail is no longer between her legs, but she is still a little jealous of other dogs. She might just be best as an only dog. She needs some work on her obedience skills and leash walking, but she really loves lap time and people attention. Jade is tan, with the face of a Brussels Griffon and the body of a terrier with a lovely tail and long locks of fur going down her back. Jade is spayed, she is up to date on her shots (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and micro chipped. If you would like to meet Jade, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring Jade for a visit.

Oscar and Charlie are a bonded male pair looking for a comfortable, loving retirement home. Their previous owners had a baby and the dogs were not thrilled with that, so they were relinquished to rescue. Oscar is the larger gray schnauzer. He is about 12 years old and weighs just over 23 pounds. Charlie is the smaller black mini. He is about 8 years old and weighs just over 15 pounds. They are used to a quiet adult home, so we are looking for a home with no children. They do enjoy wandering around in the backyard of their foster home. Oscar has a little arthritis in his hind legs and can be a little grumpy, whereas Charlie is more social, but a little timid with strangers. Oscar and Charlie are neutered, they are up to date on their vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and microchipped. They have both had dental care since they came into rescue. Oscar lost most of his teeth to decay and Charlie lost about half of his, but they both still eat dry kibble. We did blood tests prior to surgery and most of their results were within normal limits. If you would like to meet Oscar and Charlie, go to www.cominischnauzerrescue.com and complete the adoption application. We will contact you to set up a time to bring them for a visit.

Sampson, or Scrappy as he is affectionately known, is a handsome 9.5 year old mini schnauzer who is looking for a loving retirement home. He weighs about 16 pounds. Sampson is a very nervous boy who prefers to stay inside the house, only going outside to potty, and he likes the security of his kennel. He does not have separation anxiety, just very nervous in the open. He doesn’t like car rides or walks, but will stay outside with his person close by. We took him to an enclosed yard and once he got used to it, and knew his favorite person was there, he calmed down a lot and started enjoying running around a bit. He has a beautiful prance when he's running around. We don't know what caused this boy to be so terrified in his past, but he is slow to warm up to new people. He has been with other dogs. He doesn't do well with young humans, so would prefer a quiet adult home where someone is around most of the time and is ok with him just being himself. He loves to destuff his toys and will eat the squeaker, so chewies work better to keep him occupied. Sampson is neutered, he is up to date on his vaccinations (rabies, distemper and kennel cough), vet checked, heartworm tested negative and on preventative while in rescue, and microchipped. He is currently on medication to help with his anxiety. He also had his teeth cleaned and cared for while in rescue. If you would like to meet Sampson, go to www.cominischnazuerrescue.com and complete the adoption application. We will give you a call to set up a time to bring him for a visit.
