This Fall, silhouPETte was lucky to work with the kind and caring souls at the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston. While aspecific team of volunteers and foster parents worked to raise awareness at a local event, they were surprised with a gift from us!
A total of ten compassionate individuals received our Miniature Schnauzer charm as a ‘thank you’ for their heartfelt contributions within the K9 world. We are so very touched by how they give their homes, their hearts and their souls to care for our four-legged friends… we just couldn’t resist sending them some of our love in the form of the animals they care for most!
Here’s a story — from the point of view of an actual rescued pup — that will melt your heart. If you live in the Houston area, please consider adding a rescue from the MSRH to your family.
“I’ve paid my dues, time after time. I’ve done my sentence, but committed no crime. And bad mistakes; I’ve made a few. I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face but I’ve come through! The house was getting packed up. I thought we were moving out and moving up. But they moved. And they left me behind. Like totally behind. Like by myself. But I’m a fighter! And thanks to Donna, my loving foster mom, and Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston, I’ll be a champion again! I’m Makayla and I’m a female, white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail. I’m about one year old…certainly less than two….and I weigh about nine pounds. I have a bit of a “cherry eye” but it’s cosmetic and MSRH is going to have it fixed for me before adoption. I’m a super sweet young lady and I’m extremely friendly. I’m crate trained and I’m house trained too! I know. You’re thinking, ‘why would they leave her behind’. Yea. That’s what I think too! I like to go on walks, am learning how to walk on a leash, and am also learning some basic commands. I know I can be a champion again, and with the help of my foster mom, Donna, I will be ready to show some lucky family all of the love and charm I have to offer.”
Sending a special ‘thanks’ to Kathryn McCoy for working on this project with us to acknowledge and appreciate the MSRH team!
