Dog Adoption and Rescue

Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue:

Sheltering and finding homes for rescue animals is very important at Deer Creek Animal Hospital. Dr. Higgins is a founding member of the Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue, a 501C3, non-profit organization. The purpose of VSGSR is to rescue, treat, foster and place Giant Schnauzers and many other breeds. Deer Creek Animal Hospital provides discounted medical services and shelters these animals until they find forever homes. Many of them can be visited in person at Deer Creek! Please visit

JonJon and Bobo are Giant Schnauzer littermates, and they are estimated to be about 4 years of age. They are a very close, bonded pair and will need to be adopted together. They traveled to the U.S. from Taiwan in the Spring of 2015, and since coming to America, they have thrived within their Arizona environment.

JonJon is a bit more shy and reserved personality-wise. He is okay with his sister stealing the limelight while he lounges from a distance. However, he does have bouts of energy when it comes to playing fetch. He will announce his presence to strangers but quickly warms up to them after his curiosity is sated.

Bobo has an outgoing personality, and she loves being the center of attention. She enjoys running to her heart’s content. She has recently battled a few rounds of seizures and is currently on reasonably-priced medication to combat these. The medicine is working beautifully, and thus, one would never know from watching her run and play that she is on medication for this potentially life-long condition.

Both giants are house-trained and do wonderfully with a foster. They are currently residing with a foster until they find their forever home. If you are interested in meeting them, please contact the Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue.
