MSRNT – Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas

MSRNT P.O. Box 112341 Carrollton, TX 75011


Adoptable Mini Schnauzers

Just because there are no dogs (or maybe only one or two dogs) featured here, it does not mean that there are no dogs in our program.  For whatever reason, since Covid the number of dogs in our program has decreased—but we still have dogs!

At the same time, the demand for dogs has increased. Every dog photo we have posted here brings in dozens of new applications, bogging down our volunteers in processing the applications, creating a larger pool of approved adopters for a smaller pool of dogs, and frustrating people who have been waiting to adopt. That’s why not all available dog photos are posted as they were in the past.

Initially because of Covid, and now because there are fewer dogs in our program, we are not having face-to-face adoption events at PetSmart and Petco stores. We’re working behind-the-scenes to match dogs with the right prospective adopters, using the information that is provided in our applications (see details on our home page for more information).
As always, our goal at MSRNT is to find the perfect forever home for each dog.

Because we have quite a few approved adopters waiting to adopt, at this time we are only working with experienced dog owners, and not accepting applications from families who have not had a dog before.

Hello Friends! I’m a 5 year old, 14 lb, white Mini Schnauzer. They call me Randy, but I keep telling my foster mom I want to be called Buddy. Why? Well, it’s because that’s what I want to be…your best buddy. I’m a laid-back kind of guy that can entertain myself. I will play with toys quietly or sometimes go off to another room just to ponder the world and meditate. You might say I’m low energy, but I really get excited when you come home or when you are going to feed me! Playing outside with my foster sibling is such fun! I would love to have a companion dog in my new home. Not required, but it would be nice. I have all the manners of a good little pup. I am house and crate trained. I sleep through the night so you can too. I’m not so good at walking on a leash and I tend to jump on people when they come to visit. That’s just because I have not had too much training. You can help me with that. I am also a special needs dog. I have a medical condition they call dry eye that needs to be treated daily. It’s kind of a pain, but I tolerate the procedure. Are you looking for a Buddy? If so, then I’m your guy. It will take a bit of time for me to get used to you and a new home. But after that, you will have a loving and loyal Buddy for life.

DOG BIOGRAPHY: Let me introduce myself! I’m Bruno, a 9 year old Mini Schnauzer weighing in at 21 pounds. I may be entering the Fall of my life, but you wouldn’t know it with my high energy level. I love to play with toys…maybe a little too brutal at times especially if I think it is a squirrel or bunny. Just want to show them that Bruno is in charge! I love to go on walks and will walk nicely beside you except if I see a squirrel. I really want to chase that dude! After expending all that energy, I love to cuddle. Yes, I am really quite lovable despite my name. I am a bit of a beggar for food, but a quirky thing about me is I love to eat ice! It’s the best treat! I sleep through the night and I am also crate trained. I tend to “sing” a bit for attention. My forever family needs to be at home most of the day. Does this sound like you? I sure hope so. You would make me the happiest pup and we could have so much fun together!
