Phoebe is a typical puppy. She loves to play, run around, throw her toys in the air, and all around have a good time.  She loves other dogs, gets along well with cats and enjoys meeting people.  She is quiet, very outgoing and a good snuggler! She is Alert, Friendly, Intelligent, Playful, Spirited and Curious. She had a flea infestation and was very underweight when we took her into rescue. She is healthy now, flea free and gaining weight.  She currently only weighs 4 lbs.,  but should be 5 to 6 lbs. at a normal weight.  She has long legs and is a good couch jumper!

Mini Schnauzers
Males/neutered/all medical current

16 and 21 lbs

Attention Schnauzer Lovers!!!!!! The best two Schnauzers ever are available for adoption. Before we go any further though we want to settle something right now. If our mother hadn’t lectured us on never gambling, we’d bet you a million dollars that you don’t know how one of us got named Broxter. Well, it’s like this. Our first owners said “Let’s name him Baxter.” We woofed back “No, that sounds like one of us is a butler.” Then the owners said “Let’s name him Boxer.” We woofed back, “No, not unless you want to get into a boxing match with us.” Then it was “Let’s name him Bro.” Oh my gosh, we didn’t think it would ever end so there was a compromise of combining all into Broxter. Lucky Benji got a name that was acceptable from the get go. 

BUT ON TO THE REALLY IMPORTANT POINTS. There are no negatives about either of us. 

We’ve been to the vet and were declared perfectly healthy and everything is updated. 

We went to the groomers and were praised for just wagging our tails constantly. The groomer was so impressed as we met a little girl pug and got along beautifully. I think they would say we are well socialized. Oh, by the way. Most Schnauzers have their tails docked, poor things. Ours never were so they just wag all the better and then flow over our backs               to make a grand appearance. 

We are housebroken and that’s always a questions that’s asked. 

We are quiet all night long, either sleeping in a pen or together in one large crate. We’d probably adjust to sleeping on a human’s bed but honestly, why lose your bed space if we’re happy in a pen or large crate? 

We love squeaky toys and treats. 

We are so very intelligent and are willing to learn. How about considering some formal training and being very active with us every day? We’ll all be in prime health for a very long time doing that. Plus, we’re Schnauzers and like to be active. 

We are bonded and both of us love sitting with humans. Have room on your couch for two more? 

We will need a fenced yard whenever we go out. Some silly woman said that we remind her of a chariot race, how the horses are side by side running at full speed around the fenced yard. Actually, that’s not a silly comment at all because it’s true. If we weren’t running so fast that we make a blur you’d probably see us smiling because the faster we run                           the happier we are. 

We’ve been around children and do very well but Furbaby Rescue would prefer that any children in the household be 8 years or older. We’d never hurt a child but as active and fast as we are we’d feel terrible if we accidentally knocked over a toddler. 

So that’s it unless you want to ask more questions. We’re as good as any Schnauzer gets and if you aren’t already a Schnauzer fan, you’ll quickly become one if you adopt us. Read up on the breed and see what you think or talk to our foster moms.

Mini Schnauzer
Male/neutered/shots current
10 years old
22 lbs

Max is an active, intelligent, and loving Schnauzer.

He is used to being with his person at night and during the day.  He is used to having access to a back yard.  He is the greatest car companion.  He loves being in the car and is silent and alert to all of the stimulation going on around him.

He is not an alpha dog but we have learned that when an alpha dog goes after him, he sticks up for himself, so we would like to put him in an only dog home or a home without other Schnauzers.

He is with a diverse group of dogs in his foster home and since no one has ever picked on him we have not seen any kind of aggressive behavior from him.  It’s only because he’s been on two meet and greets where we have seen this that makes us feel he should not be with another Schnauzer unless it is a very sweet and kind one. 

Max loves his meals, loves his treats, enjoys walks and is a great companion.  Like many Schnauzers, he does “alert” when “danger” is near but he quiets with a voice command.

Max had one tiny bladder stone and rather than take a chance that this was an anomaly we would like to keep him on a diet to manage his Ph levels.

He has been thoroughly vetted including X rays of his body, a dental with dental X rays, and comes with records of his full senior wellness panel.

Max is fostered in Olympia, WA.

Male/neutered/shots current

Dear darling Darby had a rough start in life but his fortune became much brighter once he made his way into rescue!  He and several other dogs had been living out in a filthy shed and the man in charge of their care was negligent and abusive to them in so many ways.  Along with being dangerously under weight, it was found his blood work was not spot on before we performed his neuter.  Upon these findings we did all of the diagnostics/tests necessary and treated him for an infection until his values returned to normal.  Darby has gained the weight were he should be and is now healthy are ready to go out into his new home.  He is a very shy guy and would benefit from having another dog of similar size in his new life to help him continue to build self confidence.  Taking him to class for socializing and exposure may also be helpful to help him in his new life.  He does prefer his foster mom and bonded very quickly to her and he will need a little more time and patience to help him learn to trust men again.  That will come with positive experiences we would hope.  It was not his fault what happened to him.

 Everyone that has met Darby comments on how super sweet he is considering his past background.  He's just still a bit unsure of himself.  Currently he is learning to walk on a leash so a fenced yard would be best for him at this time.  His beautiful spirit becomes quite evident as he zooms around the yard at warp speed and his old life for the moment is forgotten. This is his new world!!!  He is truly enjoying his new freedom and fortunate jail break from that horrible prison he was living in.  We are so proud of the progress he has made during his stay in foster care.

Darby is a love and just needs to learn to trust again and learn about the world around him.  He gets along great with dogs similar in size as well.  Once he bonds with his new owner he will be a snuggle bug for life!  Need a lap ornament?  This just might be your little man if you are willing to have a little patience with him while he learns the world is a much better place than where he was!

Hellooooooo out there!!!! Is anyone reading the write ups?  Yes??? Oh good, so I can share that I’m looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or two and you’ll take time to see if you’re interested in me? 

Let’s see how many questions you can answer “yes” to and we’ll go from there? 

Do you understand how it is to love food so much that you have to really exercise will power to maintain good health? Can you help me do that? 

Do you happen to go for walks and would you be willing to take me and let me explore and sniff around? I’d do the same for you, not that you’d want to sniff around. *wink*

Would you like to see me “dance” for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food control. Well, we can handle that, right?

Do you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - I’ve tried to play with cats but most of them just run and then I can eat their food. How is it I keep returning to the subject of food? *burp*

Would you like me to bark just enough to alert you to prowlers or strangers and then I will be quiet? Done deal!

Do you happen to have an RV so we could go south for the winter or at least do some traveling together? I can already see myself looking out the windows as we travel along.  But if you don’t have an RV, car rides would be just fine. 

So much for the questions. Now the facts, plain and simple. I like belly rubs, raw bones and raw vegetables. Bet you never thought you’d hear that from a dog! I like sleeping on the bed with my human. While I’ve gotten along with the foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, I’m really saying my doggy prayers that I might be able to be an only dog for the rest of my life. Probably my only negative is I get nervous when people reach for my head. It’s a thing in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that there’s a better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I think I’m normal. Yup, I’m more normal than most dogs. One last thing, My foster mom has worked hard to find the perfect diet for me to protect me from bladder stones. That is so awesome of her because I feel GREAT! I’m good to go for another decade. Care to join me?

 Here in this House....
I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.

I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.

I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness,

and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house...

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.

I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,

I can enjoy the warmth of the words.

I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many.

My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

Here in this house...

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.

I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves.

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should

I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity.

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...

knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me;

If I am ill, I will be doctored.

If scared, I will be calmed.

If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be
of value.

I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not
cute enough.

My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *
