Joy - 4 year old female Miniautre Schnauzer mix. Joy was rescued from a LA city shelter where she had been turned in by her owner. The reason given is the owner had some health issues and could no longer care for her. Joy appears to be mostly schnauzer, we suspect she could also possibly have some Westie in her since she has a longer body and shorter legs. Joy gets along well with other dogs. She is a little skittish but does warm up to people nicely. She also needs a little leash training. We had a dental done on Joy when she was spayed so she has pearly white teeth now. Joy is approximately 17 pounds.

Burlington - 8 year old male purebred Miniautre Schnauzer. Burlington was rescued from a Riverside shelter where he came in as a stray. He was very dirty and matted and his eyes were caked shut. We had a dental done on him and all but 3 teeth had to be removed (it doesn't bother him.. he still wants to eat kibble!). He also battled some eye ulcers caused by having entropion (condition where eyelashes are turned inward and rubs against the eyes). After getting his eye ulcers healed, he had surgery on 8/6/2019 entropion surgery to fix his eye lids, he's doing great! Burlington is also on thyroid pill which cost about $11 a month. Burlington is a very friendly boy who loves everyone. He is a bigger boy at about 25 pounds

Bronson - 5 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Bronson was rescued from a LA area shelter where he came in as a stray. He was pretty matted and it was obvious he had some skin issues probably related to flea allergies. Once we cleaned him up what a cute little guy! Bronson gets well with other dogs and is a happy go lucky boy. We prefer he go to a home with another doggie pal. We had a dental done on him when we neutered him (he had no extractions!). Bronson is approximately 18 pounds.

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 also with an ear infection which we had treated. Lindy is a super sweet girl. She needed some leash training and housebreaking 101 but she is quickly learning from her foster sibling. Lindy would do best with another doggie pal. Lindy weighs 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. He had 6 weeks of swim therapy to help strengthen him up. He is now fully recovered and ready to find a new home! We were very fortunate to get a lot of donations through facebook to help pay for little guy's surgery cost and are very thankful to all of those who gave. Fields came to us very heavy at 14 pounds... but we are proud to say we widdled his weight down to 11 pounds.

Harley - 1.5 year old male Shih Tzu/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.
