I have Miniature Schnauzer puppies for sale! See My Profile
We breed Miniature, Toy, & TeaCup Schnauzers. Schnauzers have captivated my heart, they are great animals and have such amazing temperaments. I treat my dogs like my children. I take pride in them and it shows through my breeding program. We are a family-based business, that allows us to socialize our miniature schnauzer puppies on a daily basis. All of our puppies are born and raised in our home and are watched over carefully by our family. We start doggy door training and litter box training at 6 weeks of age. We continue training until the puppy goes to its new home. I used to work for Dr. Hicks at Palm Desert Pet Hospital in training towards being a Vet Tech for a few years, so I am well knowledge in the field of animals. My entire career has been animal based from grooming, to volunteering at shelters and stables, all the way to working in a vet hospital, you name it I have probably done it. I absolutely love animals and take pride in what I do. All of our puppies are meticulously taken care of by me and my family.

Anonymous asked:
Is it normal for my two year old miniature schnauzer to always be sleeping? She will get bursts of energy that last for a few minutes, but soon after she is back to bed.



If this behavior is new, then no it is not normal. It is best to take your dog to the vet; also to record the bursts of energy so that your vet can watch what you see at home. However, if your dog has always been like this, from puppy-hood; then it may just be your dogs personality. But to be on the safe side, it would be best for a quick vet visit. Sleeping all the time/ more than normal can be signs of hypothyrodism, depression, diabetes, parvovirus, distemper, kennel cough, heartworm, leptospirosis, as well as heart and liver disease.


Don't forget pancreatitis and kidney stones

What does liver dilute mean?

1 Comment


Liver is a coat coloration of an animal. Dilute means that the color is not rich but diluted with white hairs. So Liver Dilute will be a lighter liver/red/brown coloration on a dog compared to a solid Liver coat coloration.

If you are buying a Mini Schnauzer, my question is what does ACA mean?

1 Comment


ACA means American Canine Association

Anonymous asked:
Is it possible to get a Schnauzer that will be larger than the teacup say 20 to 28 inches high and about 25 lbs?

1 Comment


Yes. The Minature Schnauzer can weigh up so 20lbs and be at tall at 18 inches. You can get a Standard schnauzer but those tend to be around 40-60 pounds. Alot bigger. If you want a middle ground ask a breeder if they have larger puppies. :)

Anonymous asked:
The last Miniature Schnauzer we had was a black one. It was so different from the salt and pepper. Why is that? Not only in their temperament but also their looks.

1 Comment


The coloration of the Miniature Schnauzer does not effect the temperament of the dog. What you got was just, another dog. The Schnauzer is larger than life, a dog that is always on the move. However, like every person in the world, they all have different personalities. If their looks were different, then that would be considered bad breeding practices. I suggest going to a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder if you decide to get another pup.
