About this Pei : 
This little pei is crate trained, house trained and walks great on a leash.  Pinky follows me everywhere and she cries when I leave her unattended.  A person who is retired or works from home would be perfect for her.  She’s super friendly with every person and dog she’s met.  Her manners still need some work as she’s over eager to make friends and take treats.


This is 2 yr. old Reagan. (His original name was Spirit) He is a Shar-pei and is being fostered in Savannah, GA. Here is his story about how he came to be rescued by Schnauzer Love Rescue.

I was surrendered to a shelter after being hit by a car. The amazing volunteers at SLR “pulled” me from the shelter, I was taken to Blue Pearl. I had two broken hips and a shattered pelvis. I had FHO on both hips and the pelvis what just cleaned out and allowed to heal. I also had Entropion surgery on both eyes and my neuter. After healing, I was given a bath and a groom. They thought I was a Standard Schnauzer mix but after a DNA test, it turns out, I am a Bear Coat Shar-pei! I am about a year old and I weigh 45-50lbs. Sometimes I think I am a lap dog.

This is my perfect Family: Now that my legs and pelvis have healed, I LOVE to be outside and run, so I will need a fenced in yard. I am house trained. I like to lay on a soft bed, blanket or sofa. I LOVE toys but my true favorite is a good old fashioned sock! I am not food driven or aggressive. I know I am not a fan of small children, cats or squirrels.

Sometimes I bark when I see people and other dogs but it is because I want to say “hi”. I enjoy riding in the car and I am comfortable on a boat. I have a 2 year old foster sister so having a playmate would be ok too. I would like an outdoor/active family that understands I can be independent and stubborn. I am UTD on all vaccinations, flea/tick and HW meds.

Let’s meet soon!

If you think Reagan is the boy for your family, contact us and ask for Reagan. He will be waiting for you.

About this Pei : 
Quincy is being fostered in a home with other dogs and gets along fine with them. He likes to play but is not overactive. He would do well in a home with another dog as he enjoys the company. He is also a cuddler and will assume that your bed is his to share……he will sleep on the floor but prefers being close to his humans!!!

Samurai (Sammy)

Name : Samurai (Sammy)                    Sammy 2
Sex : Male
Approximate Age : 11 – 13 Yrs
Purebred or Mix : Purebred
Color : Cream
Coat Type : Brush
Adoption Donation Requested : $100
Foster Location : Orlando, FL
Approximate Size/Weight : 40 lbs

Energy Level : Easy-going, laid-back

UTD on shots, Heartworm positive, Microchipped, Neutered. Sammy is undergoing slow kill heartworm treatment due to his advanced age.

About this Pei :
Samurai, “Sammy” for short, came into rescue after being found as a stray in Orlando, FL.  Those who found him took him in and provided for his short-term care but were unable to keep him long-term so reached out for help with him and FSPR answered their call.

Sammy is an older boy with arthritis in his hips, he is also heartworm positive, and may have some hearing loss due to chronic ear infections.  Sammy requires medications on a daily basis for management of his arthritis pain and is receiving treatment for his heartworms, as well.  He did have ear infections upon initial vet examination upon coming into rescue and was treated for those.  Due to Sammy’s need for long-term medical treatments, donations are much appreciated so we can continue to provide for whatever care he needs.

Sammy’s foster mom says he is a very sweet old guy and he gets along well with her other dogs.  He has learned the household routine and is fitting in nicely with the pack.

Please consider being a Guardian Angel for Sammy as he will likely remain in the care of FSPR until he crosses the rainbow bridge.  If you would like to adopt Sammy to allow him to live the remainder of his life with you, please complete an adoption application.
