Facts about Cricket & Buddy-NEW PICS!!

  • Breed: Miniature Schnauzer
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
UPDATE: Buddy & Cricket need a home with no other dogs, they don't like to have to share their human(s).

These two babies are just hysterical! They play very well together & are fun to watch. Cricket will hold up her nose to get it kissed & has even given her foster mom 'butterfly' kisses! :) Buddy likes go 'grrr' talk, he wants everyone to think he's a 'rough & tumble' boy! He is a softie though, don't let his grrr talk fool you! When his foster mom fell, he was quite concerned & stayed right next to her until she got up. Hoovering close to her to make sure she was ok. He has a round squeaky toy that he just LOVES to squeak! (it will go with him). Both are starting to slowly get waists (they were a little overweight) & are doing excellent on their foods. :) They will make someone wonderful pets!

Meet Cricket & Buddy. they are mother and son, bonded pair that require a home together.

They ended up in rescue through no fault of their own. Their elderly owner had to rehome them due to the fact she can no longer care for them properly and is moving into a place she couldn’t take them.

Buddy had bladder stone surgery earlier this year and requires a special diet to help prevent more stones from forming. He should have his urine checked occasionally to make sure he’s doing well.

Cricket had a cyst on her tummy and is currently on antibiotics for it.

Both are current on vaccines, house trained, on heart worm preventative, and well loved dogs.

They are used to adults and a quieter household however, the former owner said they do love to run and play but is not sure how they will do with children. Therefor, they will not be placed in a home with younger children.

Cricket is not quite 7 (6 years & 10 months) and Buddy is 6 years and 2 months.

If you are interested in adopting this darling pair of kids, please put in an application for adoption.

About Furever Shih Tzu & Mini Schnauzer Rescue of Kansas

About Our Rescue Group...

We are members of Furever Shih Tzu & Companion Dog Rescue. Some of our fosters may be located in other areas. The state the dog is foster in is listed behind the name of the dog on their petfinder ad.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Our whole organization is made up of volunteer foster homes. Our dogs are fostered in private homes. is NOT possible to go to a "shelter" to view all our dogs. (Please do not call me asking where to go to look at the dogs!) We ask that you submit an application first, and once you are approved to adopt, we will suggest a few dogs and make arrangements for you to meet them. We do not allow strangers who have not submitted an application to go to our volunteers homes to meet a dog. This is for our volunteers safety. We do not place dogs in homes that we do not believe will work out... so please respect our advice. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant.

Out of the Area? We will gladly do a "long distance" adoption, however we do not ship our dogs. Only the approved adopter(s) may come pick up the dog. As all our dogs are in foster homes in different places, that would mean you would need to travel to the foster home to pick up the dog. When you inquire about a specific dog we will let you know its location prior to discussing adoption plans regarding that dog. If you are not prepared to go pick up your dog, it will affect your application to adopt that dog.
The first step to adoption is filling out a written application. Once we review your application, someone from a local rescue will come to your home to meet you and your family. (We like to see where our dogs are going) Once you have been approved, you may begin meeting our dogs.

Our Adoption fees range from $200 to $350 and are used to pay the vet expenses. We consider dogs up to age 2 as puppies & they adoption fees are $325 plus $25 microchip fee. As they get older the fee is reduced. Senior dogs are $175 plus $25 microchip fee. All dogs are up to date on shots, heartworm negative, spayed or neutered and any known problems are treated before they can be adopted. Please do not ask us to subsize your dog, we do not receive federal or corporate funding. All our vet costs come out of our own pockets! Last year our vet costs were $3000 higher than our adoption fees!)

We require a completed adoption application & home screening. Prospective homes must meet adoption criteria. After you fill out an application and the references are called, a designated member of rescue will meet with you and your family in your home. We want to ensure the dog you adopt will have a forever loving permanent home. By having a member of rescue meeting you and instructional home visit, we will then determine which dog in rescue would fit well in your household. We will also offer you suggestions at that time to ensure the comfort and safety of the pet. This will also make the transition of the dog to your home go smoothly. Then we will always be available by phone or email whenever you have any questions concerning the pet. In all cases, the final placement decision is based on the suitability of each dog for a particular home and will not be made until the application has been approved, references checked and the homevisit has been completed.(Please don't call me expecting to get a dog the day you call!) We reserve the right to refuse any applicant.
