Bruno (formerly Ralphy)'s Story...
Bruno (formerly known as “Ralphy”) – 5 year old male purebred Miniature Schnauzer. Bruno was rescued from high kill LA city shelter. He showed up as a stray.. had been adopted and returned for “being sick”. Bruno was EXTREMELY over weight… was almost 35 pounds at the shelter. His skin was crusty with scabs. Bruno was given a clean bill of health after we had a full work up done on him (blood test etc) to ensure there is no underlying problem causing the overweight issue and skin issues. We finally found that food related allergies were the cause of his skin issues, so we switched him to a grain-free dogfood and his skin cleared up and he's doing GREAT! We've also have worked to get his weigh down.. he's currently 28 pounds, ideally he should be 22 pounds but we are zeroing in on finding his mini-me. Bruno is a much different dog than we when rescued him back in mid September. He's more active and happy and is ready to go home! Bruno needs a home that won’t feed him endlessly and will get him some exercise. Bruno is great with other dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bruno (formerly Ralphy), a Redondo Beach Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Redondo Beach, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Redondo Beach.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Redondo Beach 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 Redondo Beach 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 Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Redondo Beach paves the way for another one to be saved.
