Juanita's Story...
November 14, 2014 - Juanita's health has improved significantly since she's been with rescue. She is eating Fromm Whitefish & potato with a squirt of salmon oil on it. She also gets a teaspoon of plain fat free yogurt and pure pumpkin on top of her kibble. She no longer needs Forti Flora sprinkled on her food and her stools have returned to normal. She loves the comforts of living inside and enjoys being inside an air conditioned house when it's hot and humid out or being inside when it's cold and frosty. She is house trained and will alert you in the middle of the night if she needs to go outside - this very seldom happens; however she does know to do her business outside. She's getting better walking on a leash but still wonders what that's all about

September 8, 2014 - Juanita loves living inside rather than outside (she was a breeder dog and lived most of her 10 years outside) and is wondering why no one is interested in adopting her. She is a good little senior dog that just wants a comfortable bed to curl up in, tasty good quality kibble and a nice fenced yard to wander around in. She is best friends with the male mini she shares a home with and loves to go out when he does. She loves to go to meet & greets and visit with all the people that stop by to say hi to the dogs. Juanita is waiting patiently for someone to adopt her; however in the meantime, she'll hang out with her two mini friends and continue to settle into her foster home.

July 16, 2014 - Juanita is listed as a senior girl - 10 years young. She has lived in her foster home almost 3 months and has come such a long way in such a short time. She continues to get healthier and happier as each day passes. Juanita is crate trained and does not have accidents inside her crate. She is also house trained and loves her new life. She will be forever grateful to BSRO for rescuing her. Juanita is seeking someone that can provide her a quiet and loving home. No large dogs, please - they make her nervous.


June 24, 2014 - Juanita's coat is coming in nicely and she's settling into her foster home. Her health continues to improve and she's once again back on a good quality kibble (either Victor or Fromm). Her kibble is softened with warm water because she only has 10 teeth. She loves being outside snooping around the yard and following around the male mini she lives with. When she comes inside, she seeks out one of many dog beds. This little senior loves her dog beds and whoever adopts her will receive one of her favorite dog beds to take with her. Senior dogs are wonderful pets and this little girl is patiently waiting for her forever home.

May 18, 2014 - Juanita is getting healthier as each day goes by. Her coat is slowly coming back in (she had a couple of bald spots) and was recently groomed for the first time since coming into rescue. She loves being bathed and is wonderful on the grooming table. Very patient - just stands there while being bathed and/or groomed. She enjoys living inside and has tested each dog bed in her foster home - quite the change from living her entire life outside prior to coming into rescue. She is currently eating boiled white chicken, white rice and Blue Buffalo sensitive stomach dog food because she has suffered from very loose stools. I'm guessing she has a sensitive tummy, so she may have to eat sensitive stomach dog food. She not a picky eater and loves dinner time. Juanita follows the male mini she lives with outside everywhere and enjoys going to meet & greets, is very friendly with all humans she meets; however she doesn't care for large dogs. This little senior would make an excellent companion for someone that has a quiet lifestyle and just wants some four legged companionship to love and spoil.

April 24, 2014 - It's been about 8 days ago that Juanita was spayed and had 14 teeth removed. She is on the mend and is once again eating with gusto. Every once in a while she will pick up a toy and toss it around; however what she really loves doing is checking out all of the dog beds in her foster home. Someone pointed out that she's like Goldilocks and is trying to figure out which one is the 'softest and just right for her'. This little senior dog would make anyone a wonderful companion. All she wants to do is lay around, spend time outdoors sunning herself and to learn the joys of living comfortably inside a home rather than living outside. If you think you'd like to meet Juanita, fill out an application and someone will contact you or come to one of the meet and greets that BSRO has twice a month. Please check with them via email first to ensure she will be there.


Juanita was surrendered to the program by her owners after changing life situations. She is a senior girl but don't let that fool you. She has plenty of spirit left in her as demonstrated to her foster home. she has splashed in water bowls, played with toys and pretended to be goldie locks trying out all the beds in the home. She will see our vet for her spay and teeth cleaning and will be ready for her forever home in about 30 days.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Juanita, a Springfield Miniature Schnauzer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Schnauzer for sale in Springfield, or seeking a Miniature Schnauzer dog from a breeder in Springfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Springfield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Springfield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature Schnauzer breeders who help with Miniature Schnauzer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Springfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
