Posted Breed: Schnauzer / Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Mixed. (SRC#1602) RASCAL HAS BEEN RETIRED TO HIS FOSTER FAMILY RASCAL (SRC#1602) is a well traveled Schnauzer/Sheepdog mix with a very laid back personality. He would have made a wonderful family dog because he is one that goes with the flow and just enjoys being with his family whatever they are doing. Mildly heart-worm positive when he came to us, SRC treated this senior to assure he has a great opportunity at that long happy life he deserves, now all he needed was a loving family who understands commitment! No more rejection for this handsome guy -- he cannot take another heartbreak especially since he deserves so much better. THIS DOG WAS PLACED ON HOLD FOR TWO - FOUR WEEKS PENDING EVALUATION AND BEFORE WE KNEW IT -- ALMOST TWO YEARS HAD PASSED AT HIS FOSTER HOME! This is probably the longest period of time this poor boy had ever spent at one place in his entire lifetime! So of course he considers this foster home his permanent home! RASCAL (SRC#1602) is an amazing dog! His personality is fantastic and he has yet to meet a stranger. Of course it is no wonder the way this captivating canine has traveled already. It simply is incredible that any canine should have already been in at least 2 shelters already with the mention of a third! NO poor animal should have suffered this way! He was housebroken which is changing as old age catches up with him, and also very easy-going, approximately 47 pounds and such a pleasure that everyone who meets him just is automatically his friend! Rascal loves to ride and is happy to just be part of the group. He is an older adult who definitely deserves a wonderful home and probably will make a great family dog. As he was fostered once the Heart-worm treatment was completed the bond between him and his foster parents grew. SRC loves him already and will see that he gets whatever he needs to be happy and healthy. What he really needs now is to stay exactly where he is because he truly has already adopted his foster parents and does not want another change in his life. We have committed to making him happy.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Poodle (Toy)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Toy) (medium coat). My name is BUDDY (SRC#1913) and I am six (6) years old. I weigh approximately 12 pounds. I am a Toy Poodle with Natural Ears and a Natural Tail. My color is white with a small amount of apricot mixed throughout. I am not yet micro-chipped but SRC will arrange for that to be done. I do have all my vaccinations,am heart-worm negative, been neutered and will be evaluated for 2 weeks by my foster family who are located in Columbia, SC. I was going to be fostered in Raleigh, NC but it turned out that I do not especially care for children and there was a child in that home. Although she was 12 years old, I simply do not appreciate children and gravitate toward adult humans, especially men. I am very affectionate with adults and I get along well with other dogs, yet there should not be any children in my adoptive home. SRC#1913 BUDDY's Story BUDDY with this unique identification number: (SRC#1913) came into SRC care the last weekend of September, 2017 and is now being prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process. On the 22nd he will be moved to his foster home which is in Columbia, SC where he is scheduled to stay until he is adopted. Buddy came to us when we went to pick up a Schnauzer in that neighborhood. His owners were moving out of the country and needed him to get a new home right away and were having trouble getting another rescue to respond to them so SRC agreed to assist them. Buddy is a sweet little boy yet since he does not care for children that might have something to do with the reason other rescue organizations preferred not to accept him. He is healthy and sweet so we will work to assure that he goes to an adoptive home where there will be no children and he can still get the attention he craves. We at SRC just want him to have that loving home he deserves. When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team. THIS DOG IS CURRENTLY BEING FOSTERED IN MICRO,NC AND WILL BE MOVED TO COLUMBIA, SC AROUND THE 22ND OF OCTOBER, 2017. YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO DRIVE TO HIS LOCATION IN ORDER TO PICK BUDDY UP WHEN HE IS ADOPTED. Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $350 PLEASE READ PRIOR TO APPLYING When ready for adoption this canine will have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will now be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption.

      rescue
      Breed: Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Giant Schnauzer (medium coat). My name is ROSCOE (SRC#1905) and I am being fostered in Charlotte, NC . I am four years old and I weigh approximately 59 pounds. I am a sweet male Giant Schnauzer who was turned in at a local Humane Society by my owners. They felt that I had separation anxiety and did not want to work with me on this issue. SRC has placed me in a foster home with someone who is very familiar with my breed and soon they will understand exactly the type of home that i really need to be happy and to flourish. My foster home will give me fantastic care and I am going to let her know what will make me happy and the type of placement which will help me to flourish in an adoptive home which meets all my needs. Often my breed is placed with people who do not understand that we are super intelligent and just want to be a very important part of the family and not an after-thought. If I am not challenged and made to feel important in my family then I won't be happy and neither will you. I am micro-chipped, have all my vaccinations, am heart-worm negative and neutered . Beginning on Friday, August 25, 2017 I was evaluated by my foster family who have gone through SRC's approval process. They know lots about Giants and have other Giants too. I will fit right in there and soon there will be more information posted about me. Because I do suffer from Separation Anxiety, my placement should be with (1) Retired person (2) Someone who works from home (3) Someone who can take him to their work. My temperament is very good for a therapy dog especially since he needs to be with his human on a consistent basis. You must have experience with Giant Schnauzers to apply to adopt Roscoe. Here is the evaluation report from his foster mom: Roscoe is a "perfect" dog. Walks well on leash Quiet in home Not pesty in home; lays at feet for TV and Bedtime (on floor) Not food aggressive Good with other dogs Easily trainable; very good eye contact; very intelligent Obeys commands: "Crate" goes to crate immediately (for dinner) Rides well in car Not skittish with new circumstances or noises. (Motorcycles, etc.) Loves human beings. Today at the Adopt-a-Thon with Caldwell Banker, Roscoe was approached and petted by over fifty people including a couple of big burly guys and children. Friendly with all. Sits and gives paw; he was a really popular dog. He seems pretty healthy, but could use about 20 lbs on him. He must have been crated for long periods because part of his tail is stripped of hair (looks like rubbed off). Also his teeth look a little worn like he's been chewing a lot of wood! Never got an owner report from the shelter he came from; God knows what he's been through. (SRC#1905 ) ROSCOE'S STORY ROSCOE with this unique identification number: (SRC#1905) came into SRC custody and care on Friday, 8-25-2017. His foster mom will be evaluating him for the next couple of weeks to determine the type of home he will need for the best placement. Once ready for adoption ROSCOE will be heart-worm negative, de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team. THIS DOG IS BEING FOSTERED IN CHARLOTTE, NC AND YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO DRIVE TO THAT LOCATION IN ORDER TO PICK THE DOG UP THERE WHEN HE IS ADOPTED . Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $ 550 PLEASE READ PRIOR TO APPLYING When ready for adoption, this canine will have been evaluated for at least two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will be able to give the adoptive parents their opinion about the demeanor of the family companion prior adoptive parent finalizing their adoption of this canine. All SRC volunteers strive to do this for the well-being of their rescued canine and to assure a successful adoption. It is our worthy mission to assure that each canine rescued by SRC is placed in a loving, stable and permanent home whose family members will treat as a beloved member of their immediate family. We are prepared to assure that our rescued dogs are in great homes or we will reclaim them if necessary. SRC’s dogs are placed in foster homes throughout TN, NC, SC, and VA until they are adopted and these states are our approved adoption areas.

      Breed: Miniature Schnauzer-Poodle (Miniature) Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (short coat). My name is Niko (SRC#1899) and I am a senior Schnoodle. I am somewhere between 8 and 11 years old and I weigh approximately 10 pounds. I am micro-chipped, have all my vaccinations, have not yet been neutered due to my health and was evaluated for an by my foster family who have gone through SRC's approval process. They think I am wonderful! They would have never known just how sick I really am. My foster family is located in Washington, NC. I was dumped at a high kill facility and no one knew how old I was. I have cataracts yet I can still see and I am a very gentle soul. I would have just crawled into the corner and died of starvation because I was too timid to fend for food or water but someone saw my plight and asked SRC to have pity on me. They reached out to help me live and somehow I lived long enough to come to a fantastic foster mom who is doing everything possible to make certain I understand just how much I am loved, no ADORED and am being given every opportunity to thrive. My ribs are sticking out through my fur which is soft and curly. I had been kept in a crate with 2 larger and younger dogs that had taken all my food and played constantly forcing me to crawl into a corner and hide to protect myself. I am a cuddly little boy and love to be held. When I was taken to be neutered, plus I desperately needed a dental blood-work was done and the vet let SRC know just how sick I am. My heart is failing and so are my kidneys. I would not have lived through the surgery so NO dental and NO neuter for me. I have been placed on antibiotics and heart medication so that my last days will be more comfortable. I still play and jump happily when my foster mom feeds me. I am so happy now that someone actually pays attention to me. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Some day in the future I will be resting in the arms of the true Master where there will be no pain and no separation from anyone we love yet for now my life is better than it every was. Yes, I sleep a lot but rest is what I need most -- that and good nutrition and most of all -- LOVE. Please send good thoughts and prayers my way. Donations toward my care would help too. SRC is going to assure that I have some time -- whatever I can hold on to where I am happy, respected and loved. My heart medication will be provided through your donations. Bless you. (SRC#1899) NIKO's Story NIKO with this unique identification number: (SRC#1899) just came into our custody and care. SRC had hoped Niko could be built up physically enough to be vetted, so this dog will be prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process yet this is not to be . NIKO is far too sick to recover so he will not be placed for adoption. SRC will assure that he is being given lots of good nutrition, TLC, and rest to prepare him for his trip across the Rainbow Bridge when his time comes. Poor little boy is very weak from lack of care and poor nutrition and the damage took its toil. He does have his vaccinations and is Heart-worm negative. He is so sweet and deserves a wonderful loving home until he goes to be with the true Master of all. This precious boy will never be available for adoption. NIKO is heart-worm tested, de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. He has a serious heart issue and he has kidney failure and will not be in this world a lot longer. He has been placed in Hospice Care and SRC through your donations will provide for that care. His loving foster parent will be with him until he crosses the Rainbow Bridge. Tax-deductible donations will aid in caring for Niko during his Hospice Care .

      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Mixed (short coat). My name is PEPPER, and my SRC Identification Number is 1894. I am micro-chipped, have all my vaccinations, been spayed, am heart-worm negative/ Very soon I will be getting an extensive dental at the SRC vet's office. I have some lipomas which my vet will examine to see if they need to be removed also. My loving foster mom who thinks I am adorable will evaluate me for 2 weeks before I will be available for adoption. I am only 11 pounds right now because my mouth hurts and it has become very difficult for me to eat. Others might have euthanized me yet SRC is dedicated to assuring that I get the best possible care so soon my pain is going to be over and I will be eating normally again. In the meantime they are starting me on canned puppy food to assure I get as much vitamin content as possible. I am far too sweet to suffer as much as I have already! (SRC#1894) PEPPER's Story PEPPER with this unique identification number: (SRC#1894) came into our care on August 5, 2017 and is being prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process. She is such a sweet little girl who was rescued from a local shelter and then almost euthanized when it was determined that she needed a major dental. SRC stepped up to assure that Pepper got what she needed. She has too much life left in her not to assure that she enjoys every minute of it. She is a bashful little girl and we are waiting for her to come out of her shell so that we can see her bubbly personality. With a face like that, there has to be a heart of gold too. We at SRC just want her to have that loving home she deserves. When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, spayed if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed. RETIRED--NOW IN HOSPICE CARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION CANDE' (SRC#1633) is a cruelty case from a local shelter. She has the potential to be such sweet senior girl however she has been very tortured in horrific ways. We can tell by the response that she has to men that most likely it was a male that abused her the most. Even after many months she will still scream horribly if touched because she fears being assaulted once again. She is a fear biter and even now her foster mom is the only person that can really deal with her after many months of working with her patiently. She still screams at times when she is picked up and it is not in pain because she has been checked thoroughly by our vet. Cande does well with other dogs and even cats but people are a different matter. She has been taught not to trust, so SRC has decided to retire this senior girl and allow her the peace she needs in her foster home. She has a number of medical issues and SRC is helping her to be comfortable and happy as long as she lives. She deserves that much considering what she has suffered in her past. RETIRED AND NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION Please note: Our dogs are NOT located in Lenoir, NC. They are in foster homes throughout NC, SC, and VA. You must be willing to drive to the dog's foster home in order to adopt it. The location of each dog is listed at the bottom of its bio. Our Available Dogs are updated frequently by volunteers. If you see a dog on our site, it is available for adoption on that day still it is possible for other applications to be pending for that dog so submitting an application does not guarantee its adoption. Emails asking if a dog is available for adoption can not be answered due to the huge volume of inquiries that SRC receives. Just as the Available Dogs are updated frequently, so are the bios. The bios are very descriptive and tell everything we know about a dog. If something is not listed in a bio, we do not know it at the time you are reading it. Emails asking for more information can not be answered due to the huge volume of inquiries that SRC receives BEFORE you may meet any of our dogs, you must be approved to adopt. This means you must first download an application from our website and submit it via email or fax (1-910-401-1317). A vet check or a reference check is then completed and if that goes well a home visit is done. The entire process takes 3-7 days normally, depending on your location. If we do not have anyone in your area to do your home visit we will ask you to reach out to local vets offices, shelters, and rescues to get this done. Please do not apply to adopt a dog if you are not prepared to welcome it into your home within two weeks of applying. We do not hold dogs and we adopt them out on a first come first serve basis based on a completed adoption process. SRC does not ordinarily adopt its dogs to families with children under ten years of age. This is for the protection of the dogs and for the protection of the children. Once you are approved to adopt you must make your donation online via our website and sign an adoption contract BEFORE you pick up your new dog. SRC does NOT do meet and greets on the same day as adoptions so if you want to meet the dog first, you must make two trips to the foster home. Keep in mind that if, while you are waiting to meet a dog, another approved applicant decides to commit to it, the dog is no longer available for adoption. Why does SRC request an adoption donation which will help future incoming rescued canines? Here is a break-down of the average expenses spent on SRC dogs to assure they remain healthy and happy as they are prepared for adoption: Office Visit: $45-60 Fecal; $14-24 Rabies: $14-24 DHLPP: $14-24 Bordetella: $14-24 Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrliccia Testing: $30-45 Heart worm Preventative: $16 per month Spay or Neuter: $200-$400 Total Basic Vetting: $347- $617 Additional Vetting: Teeth Cleaning: $200 Blood Panel: $80 -150 Cherry Eye: $300-$500 Urinary Tract Infection: $60-100 Heartworm Treatment: $300-700 Luxating Patellas: $1,800 per leg Cruciate Surgery $1,200 per leg Entropian Surgery: $250-$500 Demotectic Mange: $100 per month X-Ray $80 - $110 Ultrasound: $300 Cataract Surgery: $1500 - $3000 Boarding: $300 per month per dog We want to thank you for your interest in our dogs. We ask that you please read the bio's information thoroughly before contacting the rescue as many of your questions will be answered in the bio. This will save time that we as volunteers will be able to apply toward saving the lives of needy dogs that are perishing without our help. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation!
