After 11 wks. in my foster care, these two rescued Skansen females, Tess & Heidi, went to their "furever" homes Nov. 18. They were excellent guests & enjoyed being part of my family for this short time. Thank you, Hertha Meyer from HT-Z Giant Schnauzer Rescue, for all that you do!! ❤️

Meet REECE! Reece is a gorgeous, healthy 5.5 y.o. N M & will be a once-in-lifetime companion for the right person or family. He weighs around 80#.
Reece had a rough start & was kept in a crate for long periods of time. He is great in the house, calm, neat & relatively quiet but will bark at visitors & will whine if confined or separated. He is super trainable, & great on a leash & only pulls for a block or so until he settles in. However, you will need some strength to restrain him when he sees something strange or interesting. Reece needs a strong, confident leader who can guide him w/o the use of harsh training techniques.
Reece hasn't had much contact with other dogs & cannot be trusted unsupervised with other dogs.
Reece is being fostered in Portland, OR. For more info., see Petfinder.com He is being offered for adoption in the NW by Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue. See www.vsgiantschnauzerrescue.org for an Adoption Application.

Meet COACH, an 8 mo. old, N M , black Giant Schnauzer, about 75#. He was surrendered because he fought with the other dogs at his previous home. He has also fought with the other NM 1 y.o. GS at the foster home in Wilsonville, OR. Because of this, Coach should be the only dog in the family.

Coach is friendly to people. He needs a lot of socialization & training from an experience GS owner. He is current on all vaccinations.

Introducing "CREEPY" (born 10/12/17) 1 y.o. N M Black Purebred GS, weighing 78#. Current on all vaccines. Creepy is very exuberant & energetic. Knows "sit". He's playful with other dogs; chases cats. He's not aggressive to children but will jump on them. He will bark at strangers, but calms down. Creepy's bad habits are barking,whining, jumping up, & he has severe separation anxiety. He also doesn't like to be groomed.
Creepy needs a very strong "alpha" to provide obedience training.

Meet "BEAR" (DOB June 5, 2009) male AKC Giant Schnauzer that was owner surrendered. This current family has had him since July, 2017, but he is not working out with the other male in his home.
Bear is not neutered (this will need to be done). He is good with larger female dogs, no cats or small animals, crate trained, loves to go out in public, loves the water, good with teenage kids (not sure if he will tolerate young kids for a long period of time). He is a cuddlier, does well being groomed & loves carting. Bear is current on all his shots.
Looking for a retired home in Washington or Oregon with GS experience as he has separation anxiety. Presently being fostered in Oregon City.
Email [email protected] for an Adoption Application.

Bear was neutered 10-4-2018. He is looking fr a home.

GSRNW is facilitating a family, with health issues, in the Portland, OR area, to rehome their 4 yr. old spayed F Giant. Basil is 90 lbs. & all black. She is afraid of people first, but can warm up to you. She could probably use some confidence training. She doesn't like cats & is too big & strong for children. She rides well in a car. Basil is current on all her shots & bloodwork.

Basil does have a thyroid condition. She needs to take her thyroid medication (1 tablet every 12 hrs. @$29.50 for 90 tablets). She will need to have blood work done periodically to test her thyroid. Owners DO NOT want any $ for a rehoming fee, just the best possible home with love, a fenced-in backyard & frequent walks.

Please email Mary @[email protected] for a Giant Schnauzer Adoption Application. You must have had Giant Schnauzer experience to apply. Thank you.

Grady would really like to be in a family of his own where other Giants aren't around to bother him. There are 3 dogs in his foster home who share the attention of just one person. He likes his one mile walk, his brushing time & petting time. The more time devoted to him, he thinks, the better! Grady is looking for a home with no stairs because as he gets older, he may not be able to climb up & down stairs. He is approaching 11.5 y.o. and he's been in foster care now for 10 mos. Is there anyone out there, that would like to adopt a senior dog? Please email [email protected]

Grady is in need of a foster home. Grady is 11.5 yo, N M Lab/Giant Mix.. He was surrendered to GSRNW in July, 2015, when his owner passed away. I have been fostering him for 8 mos., but cannot continue. Grady has Larengeal Paralysis which makes it hard for him to breathe, but surgery for him is not an option. He does have some arthritis, so stairs are not good for him. He doesn't take any medication.
Grady does well w/o the stimulation of my 2 Giants. He sleeps a lot, likes to eat, knows where to go "potty" outside. He likes people, & other dogs, & curious about cats. He weighs about 80#. He could benefit by someone who can walk him short distances & monitor him for possible aspirations, which is a side affect of his breathing problem. Grady is a very sweet dog.

I live in a small rural town in Oregon with my husband. I have multiple sclerosis and had a service dog for a lot of years. He was a border collie husky mix, and energetic. I took him for runs with my power chair or scooter. He was a rescue and had been through trauma, which made training him harder. But I loved Teddy. He loved music and had an ear for it. During water aerobics, he sang along, and at church too. After this beloved dog died, I got married to Jerry (5 years ago). We are now ready to adopt a dog that I can have trained to be a mobility service dog. I want a younger dog, and someone suggested a giant schnauzer might be wonderful for this purpose. I grew up on a farm and raised cattle and horses, so am good with animals. I want a dog strong enough to brace and be a help to me when I fall (as I try to get up). I doesn't have to bear my weight, just be a stabilizing help. Also, one could be trained to help me walk. From your experience, do you think a giant schnauzer might be a good breed for a mobility/service dog for me?
Our love of our Giant Schnauzer, Simba, started our journey to provide grieving pet owners a beautiful artistic alternative to the traditional wooden box or urn. We lost our beloved Simba a few years ago. It was a devastating experience - but out of the grief came a new beginning. When we received Simba's ashes in a wood box, my partner Jason, a 2nd generation glassblower, decided to create an artistic alternative. Thus Starry Night Glass Art was born...hand-crafted memorial glass art, created with care and compassion.❤ Facebook: www.facebook.com/StarryNightGlass Website: www.StarryNightGlassArt.com Etsy Store: www.etsy.com/shop/StarryNightGlassArt 🎥Video: https://youtu.be/LLqXeZIz7no P.S. We love locals! If you live near Seattle, you are welcome to come to our glassblowing studio to watch your custom pieces being crafted by Jason! 🔥
Hi! We are 1st time GS owners. We have a gorgeous 6 month old male (Gorgeous George) and he is VERY vocal. We love it (99.9% of the time) but are just wondering if that is common for this breed?
Would you be able to help out these giant schnauzers:

We lost our beloved Giant Schnauzer, Simba, a couple of years ago. It was a devastating experience - but out of the grief came a new beginning. When we received Simba's ashes in a wood box, Jason, a 2nd generation glassblower, decided to create an artistic alternative to the traditional urn or wood box. Thus Starry Night Glass Art was born...Jason creates beautiful glass memorials, for pets and people, with a small amount of ash infused in the glass. Keep the memories alive in an original piece of glass art, hand-crafted with care and compassion.
