Welcome to The Little Schnauzery

We are an Arizona Schnauzer Rescue foster home with two parents, three kids, a schnauzer and most of the time a foster dog. Read about the rescued dogs and our experiences with them in this blog.
Please consider adopting or fostering a rescued schnauzer.

Returned from a week of work out of town to some BIG changes!

Travis is gone now, adopted by a family he was very happy to meet. Here the girls say goodbye to an awesome foster dog.
Below Travis is all fancied up and on his way to meet his new home.
Bye Trav, we love you!!!

Millie has also moved on to a new foster home. She made good progress while she was here. At first she was fearful of all of us but after a few days she turned into my Velcro dog. Anywhere I went, there was little Millie. She also loved the treadmill. She would do a slow pace for a good 30 minute. She moved to a new foster home that can help her continue to strengthen her legs and increase agility.
Millie has been replaced by another female named Simone. Simone has amazing coloring! She ruled the roost and needs to learn some manners and then she will be a beautiful, perfect family dog.

The other change is that while I was gone my wife adopted a new schnauzer for our very own. A GIANT schnauzer. She is 10 months old and we have not named her yet.

Several Updates

Travis is still with us and has made excellent progress on his recovery. He even romps and plays now! It has been so rewarding to watch him slowly change from a fearful dog to a happy dog. Travis is great with the kids and even lets them dress him up. He is fully adoptable and might be going to a family with little girls (where he will feel right at home). Very blurry picture but he wouldn't stop moving around.

Our puppy-pants has left us, but I found this cute picture of her.
Below is her replacement. Very much like Travis at first. She was completely ungroomed and matted and fearful of human touch. Once they got her shaved down we found her a touch overweight and fairly immobile with a lot of limping. We have had her a couple of weeks now and are making good progress with her. More on her later...

I also found this cute pic of the pair who stayed with us for a few days before getting adopted. I love smiling dogs. :-)
