Ross – 3 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Ross was rescued from a LA county shelter where he came in as a stray. He was so matted he was unrecognizable as a schnauzer but once groomed a purebred mini emerged! He gets along well with other dogs. A big shout out to the LA County's Grooming Gives Hope program which provided grooming for Ross. Ross as a natural tail and is about 19 pounds.

Sully - 8 month old male Miniature Schnauzer mix. Sully and his two sibling were rescued from an LA county shelter where they came in as strays. The person that found them said they had been hanging around in an alley for a week or so, he had been feeding them for a while but realized he needed to get them to safety. The pups were all kind of feral, none of them walk on a leash. They were skittish when we got them but came around with affection, kindness and chicken! Sully is the most going out of the three…he loves to play. Sully would be best in a home with another dog. Sully is approximately 14 pounds.

Alma - 4.5 year old female Miniature Schnauzer mix. Alma was rescued from a LA county shelter were she came in as a owner surrender, the reason her owner gave for relinquishment was they were moving to a place that didn't allow dogs. Reviewing her paperwork from the shelter, we found that her owners adopted her from the shelter when she was 2 months old over 4 years ago. We don't think they were very responsible owners as they never took her back to be spayed. She also is a bit of a nervous dog leading us to believe she may not have been treated too well. Because she is a nervous dog, we believe she would do best in an adult only home that is low key. Alma is a longer bodied girl, we think she could possibly have doxie in her. She does get along well with other dogs. Alma is approximately 18 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.

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). And still more foxtails... in fact over the course of 2 months he had FOUR surgeries before we were total rid of the foxtails! Finally Beanie is foxtail free. His fur has grown back too and he is a handsome little guy. He really is super sweet who will melt into your arms. He gets along great with other dogs, in fact he really needs a home with another dog since he does not like being alone. Beanie has thankfully put on some weight in our care an now weighs approximately 10 pounds.

Faye - 10 year old female Chihuahua. My name is Faye. I don't understand why my family went away. We had 10 happy years together and then one day they took me to jail. I don't know what I did wrong... I am quiet and don't take up much room (I only weigh 8 lbs) and I try to be really nice. Although I'm a little old lady now, I still enjoy my life: a little walk around the block and a soft bed is all I need. I like other dogs but I'm so lonely and just want a human to care about me again. 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.

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.
