Rocky 08-39 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

RockyRockyRockyRocky
Nice to meet you! My name is Rocky! I’m a 6-year old male schnauzer who is up-to-date on shots, neutered, microchipped, and house trained. I also just had a dental and my teeth are in great shape. I’m also good on a leash and a “perfect angel” in the car.
What is a cutie like me doing in rescue? I was adopted as a puppy by a 95-year old man and he recently passed away at 102 so now I’m looking for a new family.
I’m kind of a serious and sensitive guy but I love to be petted on my head and will snuggle on the couch with you. I have the best upward dog my foster parents have seen. I especially love when you do savasana in yoga so I can lay on top of you!
I don’t like getting picked up or petted on my stomach. I can jump great on the bed and couch though. I can be a bit of a growler and have snapped before if there’s something I don’t like or my boundaries are pushed. Therefore, I need a home without children. My foster parents are working on it and I spent some time with a dog trainer when I came in. I do get along with other dogs just fine!
I have glaucoma and require eye drops twice a day (morning and evening). I take the drops like a champ, the vet says they are doing their job, and I don’t have a problem seeing. Rocky woulkd do best in a fenced yard.
My foster parents are Jim and Kristy in Cincinnati. They say, “Rocky is a sweetheart. He would do best in a quieter home with people who are willing to keep working with him. You won’t regret giving Rocky a loving home!”

My adoption fee is only $275.

Molly Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Medium

MollyMolly
Hi all, My name is Molly! I am an 11 year old Standard Schnauzer in search of my furever home.
My Life before rescue was awful. My sole existences was to make babies. I was sold from one breeder to another. Had my ears tattooed and cut, and had very little human contact.
During my last litter, I got an infection which made me unable to have any more puppies. I was of no use to the breeder, so I was sold yet again. Lucky for me, a rescuer was watching, saw my pic, and came for me.
Life for me is now wonderful. I’m living indoors with my foster family. I have a nice fluffy bed of my own, and lots of bones to chew on. I love playing with my fur brothers and sisters in the yard and I love rolling in the grass.
I’m still very skeptical of humans, because most of them have all been mean to me. I’m learning that they can be good. I now love being petted, and will take treats from mom’s hand, but it’s still such a scary thing for me.
My foster mom is looking for the perfect home for me, if you feel that could be your home please fill out the app for me.
I’m 47 lbs. crate trained, housebroken, utd on shots. Fostered by Amy.

My adoption fee is only $275.

Hunter 04-19 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

HunterHunterHunter
My name is HUNTER – I am a 10 year-old miniature schnauzer – without the schnauzer haircut. But, my foster mom says I’m a handsome dude – even without it! I have just been recently diagnosed with diabetes. I am now on a special food diet and 2 shots of insulin a day. That’s it – that’s all you have to do to keep me happy and healthy! It’s as easy as that!
My foster mom say... HUNTER is a kind, sweet, and affectionate gentleman. He is a home surrender and very well socialized and laid back. He is very happy hanging out on the sofa with his people – and loves to go for walks and car rides. He gets along well with the other dogs (and cats) in the house – he barks at the cats but never really bothers them. He needs a fenced yard – and extra potty breaks. Diabetes makes him drink more – and, of course, need to go more. If you have a doggy door to the yard that would be awesome! He’s not much of a barker, but he will let you know when he sees or hears something near his home!
HUNTER is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is microchipped, neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations. He is heartworm negative and current on preventatives.
If you are looking for a new fur kid send in an adoption application with HUNTER’s name on it. You will be glad you did!

His adoption fee is only $225.

Lucylee 06-29 On Hold Schnauzer • Senior • Female • Small

Lucylee
Hi, my name is Lucylee and I’m a schnauzer girl. I’m 18 pounds of sweetness. I’m in rescue because my mom thought it was best for me because she was in poor health. I’m living in Florence Kentucky with my foster family that has a couple of older children and I have a fur brother. I am house trained and good with other dogs and older children. I am not sure about cats. I ride excellent in the car and walk perfectly on a leash. I have been to see the vet. I’ve had my teeth cleaned and I’m up to date on all my shots and I’m microchipped. Nobody is sure of my exact age, but the vet thinks I’m around 14, but I act much younger. Because of my age I don’t hear very well but that doesn’t stop me from doing all the things I love doing like chasing birds and squirrels. My favorite thing to do is just hang out in the back yard, and for that reason a fenced yard is a must.  In the evening you will usually find me curled up in one of our dog beds or on my foster mom’s lap. She thinks I’m the sweetest thing around.
If you think we would make a good fit, just fill out an application for me.
Thanks for reading my bio.

Sir Winston 08-41 Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

Sir WinstonSir WinstonSir Winston
Hi there,
My  name is Sir Winston. I am a 9 year old male schnauzer boy who weighs 16 lbs.
  I was purchased from a pet store in Miami, Florida and spent most of my life in one house with one set of owners. Life was good.
They were transferred to Ohio and not able to purchase a home so we lived in an apartment. I was not happy missing my yard and living three floors up spending most of my time looking outside instead of being outside. The family thought it best to give to rescue to find a more normal home where I would be happy.
Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati took me and once again... life was good in my foster home. Within a few weeks, I was adopted... that was four months ago. Now they are being transferred out of state and will need to live in an apartment so decided it best to give me up!
I am back at my original foster home now. I wish I could just stay here; but know in fairness to other dogs in the future that still need a foster, I need to find my own forever home.
Let me tell you a little more about me. I am very active. All day long I could run and play fetch if I had a chance. I need a physical fenced yard... no invisible please. I love walks but get very nervous on car rides. Steps and cats are fine with me. Older kids would be great because they could play with me. I am not a quiet lap dog. I u-t-d on all shots and microchipped. My teeth were just cleaned in the spring.
Please let this be "3rd time a charm" for me by filling out an application. Thanks for reading my story. My foster Mom is Shirley in Cincinnati.

See me in action!

My adoption fee is only $275.

Bentley 08-42 Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

BentleyBentleyBentley
Hi all, My name is Bentley. I am a 1 year old Schnoodle boy weighing only 5 lbs. I am fully grown.
I find myself in rescue because of an injury that occurred, due to no fault of my own. My previous family had small children, which we all know love to play. During one of our play sessions, I was bounced off the bed, and sustained two broken bones in my right front leg. Due to the cost of repairing my leg, my family surrendered me to rescue.
Since that day I have been on quite a journey. I was brought from Virginia to Ohio, and immediately had surgery to fix my leg. It has been a long recovery but I’m almost at the end.
The greatest thing will be finally getting this cast off, and being able to get groomed. I’m a very furry kid right now. I’m also looking forward to playing with the other pups. It’s really frustrating not being able to participate because I want to play so bad.
So now that I’m finally on the mend, it’s time for me to start looking for my furever family. My ideal family will have no small children, a fenced yard, and another small pup to play with. I have a lot to offer a new family as I’m just a baby. I am crate trained, housebroken, UTD on shots, microchipped.
If you think he would be the perfect fit for me, please fill out an application and that write Bentley.

My adoption fee is only $600.

Lexie 08-44 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

LexieLexieLexie
Hi all, My name is Lexie and I’m a 4 year young Schnauzer girl. I am 21 pounds, and what a beautiful girl I am. Everyone seems to love me.
I had a home of my own, but was frequently picked up wondering the streets. I was found in such poor condition the shelter chose not to make me return home. Thankful for me Schnauzer Rescue was watching and reached out to help.
I am now living in my foster home without a care in the world. I am a very smart girl who loves to play, and walks great on a leash. I am crate trained and house broken. I’m utd on all my shots, microchipped, and even spayed. I would do best in a home with no other dogs or small children, as they make me very nervous. I would also love my very own fenced yard to run in.
If you feel I would be a great addition to your family, please fill out an application for me, Lexie

Heidi and Sabine 09-45 Schnauzer • Adult • Females • Small

Heidi and SabineHeidi and SabineHeidi and SabineHeidi and SabineHeidi and Sabine
Hi all, Sabine (7 yrs) & Heidi (6yrs) here. We find ourself in rescue due to our owners recent divorce.
The divorce was not an easy thing, and being placed in rescue an even bigger blow. The bright side is, "we are still together." We are living in our foster home with some other fur kids and we’re having a blast. I don’t think we’ve ever played so much.
We are both very playful girls. We love toys, playing outside, and cuddling on the couch. I’m a little faster than my sister Sabine, as she had a spinal cord stroke when she was only 3 yrs old. The doggie doctor said that is all behind her now, and she’s doing great. Since the stroke, Sabine’s bark is very low and corky, and she no longer feels comfortable going downstairs. She goes up them just fine, but once at the top refuses to walk down. It’s OK, foster mom just picks her up and brings her on down. That is pretty much all the spinal cord stroke has affected. She still a funny spunky little girl. I love to spend my time grooming her. We love to lay and play together.
We are UTD on all our shots, spayed, had a dental, and even micro-chipped. We are house broke and crate trained. We love kids. We have a lot to offer our furever family. We would love to be adopted together!
If you think you could be the perfect fit for us please fill out an application so you can talk with our foster mom.

Our adoption fee is only $500 for both, or $275 each.

Zoey 09-47 and Missy 09-48 Schnauzer • Adult • Female • Small

Zoey and MissyZoeyMissy
Zoey and Missy came to SRC as a pair. They have lived together for a few years and are attached as sisters. Zoey is blind and Missy is her eyes when they are outside. She keeps track of her to make sure she is ok. It is our hope that they can stay together. If you consider adopting both, the adoption fee for is $450. If they can"t stay together, their separate adoption fees are $250 (each).
ZOEY is a 10 year-old silver schnauzer. She weighs 25 pounds. She is blind due to a severe case of dry eye syndrome. She will need lubricating drops in her eyes every day for the rest of her life. They are inexpensive and she does well with them. She is house trained – and will go to the door when she wants to go out, but so she will need some help and encouragement going out. She is pretty good at finding her way back to the door, but be prepared to carry her in sometimes! Zoey is just the sweetest girl and wants nothing but love and attention! She gets along with all the resident and foster dogs – if she ever encounters the cats she tries to play. Once she finds her spot in the house she is content to hang out. Zoey is in a foster home in Indianapolis, Indiana with her sister Missy. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations and heartworm testing. She is currently on heartworm and flea prevention. She is also microchipped.
MISSY is an 11 year old black and silver schnauzer. She weighs 19 pounds. All of her teeth were extracted due to severe dental disease. But that doesn"t keep her from eating her dry food! Missy is house trained and goes in and out on her own with no problems. Missy is a former puppy mill dog and will run if she is given a chance – for that reason she will do best in a fenced yard. She is very sweet and loves attention. But, she is also happy to just hang out on the beds in the living room with all her foster siblings. She isn"t bothered by the cats in the house and shows no interest in them. Missy is in a foster home in Indianapolis with her sister Zoey. Missy is spayed and up to date on vaccination and heartworm testing. She is currently on heartworm and flea prevention. She is microchipped.

Our adoption fee is only $450. Separately $250. We hope they are adopted togehter!

Simon 09-49 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

SimonSimonSimon
Hello there,
My name is Simon and I am an 8 year old Schnauzer boy who weighs 20 lbs.
I had been with one owner my whole life and very happy at least until they had a baby. My owner was not able to juggle taking care of me and the demands of being a mother at the same time. Consequently, she surrendered me to Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati.
I am living in a foster home in Cincinnati along with five other schnauzer brothers. We all get along great. I am housebroken, love to play with toys and am a quiet boy. It would be great to have a yard with a fence as I really love to run for a few minutes when I first get out.
I am u-t-d on everything and just had a dental with no extractions... just cleaning. My eyes get dry and I do require artificial tears to be put in daily. I am also microchipped. It would be great for me to be in a forever home with other dogs or older children that can play with me. That was something I have never had until now.

Please consider filling out an application for me! Thanks for reading my story!   Simon

Wally 09-50 Has Been Adopted!!! Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

WallyWallyWally
My name is Wally and I am an eight year old boy schnauzer. My former owner had three young children and taking care of a dog was too much for her as we did not have a fenced yard. She thought it best to surrender me to rescue to find a forever home where I would get the attention I deserve.
I am u-t-d on all shots, microchipped and just had my pearlies cleaned with no extractions! I have no health issues at all.
I love playing with my five step-brothers at my foster home. Most of the time I carry a toy around... even to bed!. I know the doggie doors, steps and love trips in the van. If you want to walk me, that would be great... I love leashes. I rarely bark except when on window lookout and see the UPS or Amazon delivery man!
Please help me find a forever home... just fill out an application. I cant wait to meet you!  Wally

Rosie 09-51 Poodle Mix • Adult • Female • Small

RosieRosieRosie
Hi, my name is Rosie. I am a female poodle mix about 10 years old and about 13 lbs. I was found wandering in Dayton and a nice man took me in. When he couldn"t find any owners for me, Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati stepped up to rescue me. And my life is so much better. I got all my shots, dental, spay, haircut, microchip, and health check. I have only 6 teeth left but eat soft food well. I am a happy girl who enjoys cuddling and always wants to be close to my person. I follow my foster mom all around the house and cry when I can"t see her. I am working on potty training but haven"t got it yet. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home but would really like to be the only dog or maybe with one dog friend. I am looking for a forever home where I can give all the love I have and be loved in return. I have so much love to give!
Rosie is being foster by Kathi in Cincinnati.

Zander 10-53 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

Zander ZanderZander
Hi, my name is Zander and it"s nice to meet you! I"m a 9-year old parti-colored miniature schnauzer. I am house trained, microchipped, crate trained, and up-to-date on shots. I get along with other dogs and don"t mind car rides.
I"ve had quite the life. For the first 5 years of my life, I was stuffed in a small cage with many other schnauzers and taken out only to breed. I never knew the feel of loving hands, cuddling, toys or treats. It was a rough life. Fortunately, 4 years ago I was rescued by Schnauzer Rescue of Cincinnati. Once in rescue, I learned that life could be awesome and began to have a happy one!
Unfortunately, my mom passed away recently and I find myself up for adoption again. My foster home is great, but I am looking for my forever home again.
I"ll bark when you come home or if I"m really startled; otherwise, I stay quiet. I don"t go down the big basement steps but can do the two small ones that lead into the back yard at my foster house.
I spend a lot of time in my crate as it"s my safe place, and I"m a bit skittish after all those years of hardship. I"m timid but super sweet. I LOVE to eat! I had two teeth removed recently and only have 4 left; however, that doesn"t stop me. The vet gave me a clean bill of health besides that. I also love to run around in the backyard. They have a fenced in yard and it"s so much fun. I"d like it if you had a fenced in yard, too, that I could explore and play in.
I just want home that will show me lots of love, be kind to me, and understand my story. I have a lot to offer, believe me (and my foster parents agree). I"m being fostered in Cincinnati by Jim and Kristy.

My adoption fee is only $275.

Dino 10-54 Schnauzer • Adult • Male • Small

DinoDinoDino
My name is Dino... I am ten years old and a very handsome boy schnauzer! I was purchased as a puppy by a wonderful gentleman along with a brother. Life was so good. Our owner did everything for us, we had everything a dog could want.
Then the dreaded news came last month when he found out he was being relocated. That wasn"t the problem... he has to start traveling to Europe with his job. Our human dad was so upset and sad at the thought of knowing he would have to choose between us or his job.
A lot of tears were shed.
Thank goodness, a friend of his, told him about Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati. He contacted SRC and they took both my brother and I.
Just after my brother went to a foster home, she lost a fur kid and has decided to adopt him.
I went to another foster home and have five schnauzer boys here to play with and a huge fenced yard which has made me very happy.
My physical went great... I am current on all my shots and microchipped. I know steps and love to sleep in bed with you at night where I feel safe. I love car rides and have no fear during storms as some of my friends here seem to!
Please fill out an application and let me be a member of your family. I will be waiting for you.  Thanks, Dino
