Lindy - 3 year old female purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Lindy was rescued from a LA county shelter where she came in as a stray. It looks like she had recently had a litter (probably one among many in the past). She has “cauliflower” ears (caused by prior hematoma in both ears that were untreated... basically her ears are a little shriveled up). She came aslo with an ear infection which we had treated. Super sweet girl. She needs leash training (our guess is she was a back yard breeder dog and didn’t go for walks or to the vet much.) as well as some housebreaking 101. Lindy weighs approximately 13 pounds.

Sonya - 3 year old female schnauzer/yorkie mix. Sonya was rescued from a LA city shelter where she came in as a stray. We don't really know her breed mix her coloring resembles schnauzer but her sizes is more of a yorkie. We believe she is a nonshedder but can't be sure... what we are sure of is that she is cute as a button. Sonya is a little shy so a quieter home would be better. Sonya weighs approximately 8 pounds.

Maguire - 2 year old male Miniature Schnauzer mix. Maguire was rescued from a LA county shelter after he was surrendered by his owner shortly before Memorial Day holiday (no reason given, but we are guessing he became too inconvenient). We are guessing Maguire's breed is schnauzer/poodle and a touch of lhasa. Whatever he is, he is extremely cute and we believe a nonshedder. Maguire gets along well with other dogs and is a pretty friendly little guy. Maguire is approximately 15 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.

Malone – 2 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. He had some issues with leash aggression but after working with a trainer, we got him to improve emensely He will require an experienced, ALPHA owner so he can maintain his balanced self. He also needs a home with a fenced yard (No apartments or Condos). The plus side is Malone is an extremely loyal fellow, who is very intelligent and gets along well very well with other dogs. 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.

Desiree - 1 year old female Terrier mix. Desiree showed up at a LA county shelter along with 2 other females and 1 male dog, all came in as strays. We believe they were all related or from the same household. All of the dogs had multiple people lined up to adopt them… however two of the dogs did not get picked up so we rescued them (Buckley and Desiree... Buckley has been adopted). Desiree is very sweet and but is a little skittish around dogs, she however needs work on leash training. Desiree is approximately 13 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.
