Tori

Tori - 3 month old female Miniature Schnauzer mix. We rescued Tori along with her mother Dori (note we have found Dori a home already) from a LA county shelter where they came in together as strays. Tori is a fluff ball right now but appears to be a nonshedder. No telling what dad was... but she did get mom's good looks. Tori is silver coated with "black tips".. but this is her puppy coat and it is likely to change. She has a natural tail. She would probalby do best with another doggie pal as she's pretty dependent upon her mom right now. Tori is cute as a button but brings all the work that puppies bring and needs everything (obedience, housebreaking and the time to devote to a puppy). We make no guarantees on her adult size, but we are guessing she is going to a medium sized dog (25-35 pounds) because at 3 months old she is approximately 12 pounds.

Carter - 1.5 year old male Miniature Schnauzer mix. Carter was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. The public probably passed him up because of his unkempt appearance, but after we groomed him we found a stunning looking boy! He looks very schnauzery but has shorter legs.. he probably is more of a low shedder than nonshedder as his fur is more on the wirey side. Carter is a playful guy and is still very puppyish (high energy!). He would do well with a doggie pal. Carter is approximately 16 pounds of love.

Watkins - 3 year old male Schnauzer/Cocker/mystery mix. Watkins was rescued from a LA area shelter where he came in as a stray. We spotted him at the shelter while rescuing another dog and decided to make it a two-fer. We didn't understand why this cute little guy hadn't been adopted. Well it seems little guy wasn't getting adopted because he has a deformed front left foot as it's missing bottom of his leg (it seems to be a birth defect). It doesn't seem to bother him except his leg isn't really usable. . At any rate he is cute as a button and gets along fine on his other legs. We couldn't leave him behind. He's a happy friendly guy that gets along great with other dogs. Watkins weighs approximately 18 pounds.

Marlee - 1 year old female Miniature Schnauzer/Poodle. This little girl was rescued from a LA area shelter where she came in as a stray and presumably hit by a car. Her rear right leg was broken (comminuted non-displaced fracture of the proximal right tibia and fibula). She had surgery to repair her leg (as well as spay her) on March 14. Marlee had her two month post surgery xrays and the vet says her fracture has healed... it is possible however that the plate may need to come out 3 months from now. Time will tell. As such we need to place her very local (southbay), so if additional vet care needed she can go to our vet that has been caring for her. Marlee is a very active girl and would do well in a home with another dog. Marlee is about 10 pounds.

Carly - 2 year old female purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Carly was rescued from an LA county shelter where she came in as a stray. She was very nervous at the shelter and had her kennel card labeled with "caution". We found when we got her home she was very sweet and good with people. Although she's been great with her foster home, she is a nervous gal and can be protective when in new situations. Carly would be better in a home without kids. Carly gets along with submissive dogs but is a princess so does not get along with dominant dogs. She LOVES to play ball.. if you play ball with her you'll be her friend for life! Carly has a natural tail and natural ears that stand up. She is a small girl about 12 pounds.

Jack - 7 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Jack rescued from an LA city shelter. He came into the shelter after being hit by a car. His left eye was injured and unfortunately had to be removed while he was a the shelter. Another misfortunate is his injury did not heal properly so a second surgery on his eye had to be performed. Unfortunately for Jack is that his good eye isn't all that good... he has dry eye and requires drops be given daily. Jack had been adopted but was returned a couple of months later. His adopters home had a lot of visitors and Jack turned out to be too territorial for their environment. Jack will require an adult only home with an alpha owner and also a home that does not have a lot of people visiting. Jack is approximately 22 pounds. Jack is currently being shown by appointment only.

Slater – 3 year old male Miniature Schnauzer/Poodle mix. Slater was rescued from an LA county shelter where he had come in as a stray. He was very frighten and skittish when we got him. We sent him to our trainer to get over some of his fear issues and he is doing much better with strangers now. He is great with other dogs and LOVES to go for walks. He'd do well with other dogs or as an only dog. We would like to see him go to someone that has a little dog experience as he would benefit with a confident owner. Slater is a loyal, affectionate little guy once he warms up to you. 0He just neeeds someone to give him a chance and let him come out of his shell slowly they would have a loyal friend. Slater is approximately 16 pounds.

Beanie - 4 year old male Shih Tzu mix. Beanie was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. We spotted him while picking up some schnauzers, he had been neutered and was ready to go home. He looks so pitiful we couldn't leave him behind. Besides being extremely emaciated, he had been stripped down to get all the fox tails out of him, he was riddled with holes from where foxtails had been. The shelter did a pre-neuter on him so they could take care of surgically removing some fox tails. We took him to the vet and found 4 more foxtails which were easily removed... but he needed additional surgery because we found 4 more that had to be surgically removed (we also did a dental on him since he was under). Poor guy... with a predominate under-bite and stitches all over his body, right now he looks like a cross between Dracula and Frankenstein!! He is still skinny but slowly gaining weight. He really is super sweet, a bit skittish at first but will melt into your arms. He will be a little looker when his fur grows back. We expect he will be ready for a new home at the beginning of July. Beanie currently weighs 7.5 pounds but should be closer to 10 pounds.

Truffles


Truffles - 4 year old female Maltese/Terrier mix. Truffles was rescued from a LA county shelter where she came in as a stray after being hit by a car. Luckily nothing was broken and no real apparent injuries. She had someone that was suppose to adopt her that did not show up, she also had multiple backup adopters which also did not show up, we picked her up. When we had a dental done on her, the vet also found two mammary tumors so we had them removed as well (we are waiting on biopsy report.. hopefully they will be benign). Truffles gets along well with other dogs and is sweet as can be. Truffles weighs approximately 10 pounds.

Faye - 10 year old female Chihuahua. Faye was rescued from a LA county shelter after her owner surrendered her there. She's 10 years young... in Chihuahua years that is old enough to be calm but not too old and but still provide many more years of loving companionship. She does well with other dogs and is an easy going sweet little lady. Faye currently weighs 10 pounds but ideally should weigh about 8 pounds (we're working on that!). Faye can be seen by appointment at Yellow Brick Road Doggie Playcare in El Segundo Call 310-606-5507 or email southbaydoggie@hotmail.com for an appointment or more information.

UPDATE 10/03/2016: Sadly when blood work was done on Faye it showed she had some medical issues, an ultrasound was subsequently done and it revealed she has cancer with masses present on her liver and spline. Faye is now is hospice care.

Swannee - 10 year old male spaniel mix. Swanne Was rescued from a LA county shelter. He was listed at 10 years old but is likely older, with missing teeth, blind in one eye from cataracts, and a heart murmur. He is shaved in this picture, but actually has pretty fluffy golden fur (see his tail) which will grow back. Swannee is a super sweet gentle spaniel mix and weighs about 12 pounds. He is fine with other dogs but mostly he just likes to be held and hang out near people. He would be a wonderful calm companion for an older person, or as an addition to a family with a little extra room in their hearts and home for a needy soul. Swannee can be seen by appointment at Yellow Brick Road Doggie Playcare in El Segundo Call 310-606-5507 or email southbaydoggie@hotmail.com for an appointment or more information.

Earl - 3 year old male Catahoula mix. Earl was rescued from a crowded LA County shelter where he’d come in as a stray. We thought we’d found him a forever home, but unfortunately he was returned a few months later because his over-scheduled adopter decided that she did not have time for a young, very active dog. He is a happy, playful, affectionate boy who LOVES PEOPLE, he loves absolutely everyone... and is great with kids! Early has fine leash and car manners, and he’s housebroken and crate and doggy-door trained. He responds best to an “alpha” handler (he aced leadership-based obedience classes): like many large-breed adolescents he can be stubborn, so his adopter should have the experience, time and temperament to continue shaping a youngster with Earl’s potential into an adult dog to be proud of. Earl is basically full-grown approximately 60 pounds.
