Brie - 7 year old female purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Brie was rescued from an outlying LA shelter where she came in as a stray. She had an adopter that backed out at the last minute when they found she had been "exposed" to parvo (her cell mate at the shelter was diagnosed with parvo). Thankfully she did not contract the disease however she did come with a trunk full of other medical issues. Brie had lost 2 pounds while at the shelter and was down to 14 pounds. Her first stop after being rescued was at our groomers so we could get her cleaned up enough so a vet could properly examine (she was a matted mess). She wouldn't eat at all so next stop was our vets. They did a full work up on her including bloodwork (which thankfully was normal), we did a parvo test since she had been exposed which also thankfully was negative, they found numerous foxtails in her mouth which they removed and gave us pain meds and an appeitizer... after that she started eating and within a week she’s gained 2 pounds! The bad news is the vet found four mammary tumors. So on May 20th she had surgery to spay her, had a dental and also to remove her mammary tumors. She's feeling much better and should be ready for a home by first of June. Brie is still thin at 16 pounds and should weigh closer to 18 pounds when she fills out.

Sutton - 4 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. We rescued Sutton from a LA area shelter where he initially came in as a stray. Sutton was adopted directly from the shelter by someone in the public with a health waiver due to kennel cough. His adopters then returned him to the shelter 6 days later because he was sick! When we saw he was back at the shelter, we rescued him. After a couple of weeks of TLC and antiboitics he was good as new. Sutton is a nice boy that gets along well with other dogs. Sutton had a dental at the same time we neutered him. Sutton is a smaller boy at approximately 16 pounds.

A Special Thank You
To Everyone
that Donated for Fields Surgery!!

Fields – 9 month old male Miniature Schnauzer/ShihTzu mix. Fields was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. We noticed he was at a private vet so called to see what was wrong and if he needed rescuing. They told us he had tested postive for parvo. Before we could commit to taking him we lined up one of our vets that could isolate and treat him. We called back the shelter to say was could take him, they then told us he had a bad hip also. After rescuing him he went straight to our vet for monitoring, isolating and evaluating him. The good news turned out he was parvo free, the bad news is he had hip dysplasia in both hips and required surgery. We got his GI problems resolved and had an orthopedic vet evaluate him. They subsequently did do bio-lateral FHO (femoral head ostectomy) surgery on 5/3/2019. Fields has a way to go in his healing process... we expect it will be 10-12 weeks (we expect Fields to be available around mid July). He will start water therapy in a couple of weeks to help strengthen him up. We were very fortunate to get a lot of donations through facebook to help pay for little guys surgery and are very thankful to all of those who gave. The vet said little dogs like Fields do very well and we expect him to make a full recovery. Fields shoud most likely will be avialable in the July timeframe. He currently is overweight (at 13 pounds) we are working on widdling him down to 10 pounds.

Roseanne – 1 year old female purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Roseanne was rescued from a LA county shelter where she came in as a stray. She was supposed to be adopted by the public but her adopter never showed up so we rescued her. Roseanne is a bit quirky… in that she is very insecure and will bark at most any noise or movement, she is getting better in her foster home as she becomes more comfortable. But she is VERY VOCAL in public. She requires an experienced, patient adopter. Roseanne is friendly and gets along well with other dogs. She is playful and very smart. Because of her insecurity she is best to a home without young children (over 10 ok). Potential candidates must have a fenced back yard (no condos, apartments or townhouses). Roseanne is full grown at 14 pounds.

Malone – 1.5 year old male Miniature Schnauzer mix. Malone was rescued from a rural shelter after he was surrendered by his owner. While Malone is an extremely sweet boy who gets along well with other dogs and is very people friend he is NOT without issue. Malone has EXTREME issues with leash aggression (he can be a Mr. Hyde on a leash). We are working with him and a trainer and he is improving but Malone will require an experienced, patient ALPHA owner. He also needs a home with a fenced yard (No apartments or Condos).. Malone looks like a purebred schnauzer but has a little bit of a longer body.. he also has a natural tail. Malone is about 14 pounds.

Harley - 1.5 year old male Havenese/Maltese mix. His breed is actually a guess… but whatever he is he sure is cute! Harley was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. He is very skittish but not aggressive. He would do best in a home with another doggie pal to give him the kind of confidence that he needs. Because of his skittish nature, he needs an adult only quiet home with a patient adopter, we are also requiring he go to a home with another doggie pal of similar size. Harley is approximately 11 pounds.
