Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 3 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.

We sell our puppies through our Priority Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to buy a puppy, visit the Priority Waiting list page to sign up for an upcoming litter.

Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)

They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!.............. Growing.Puppies@yahoo.com

Update: The Waiting List is OPEN for a limited time. Registration is $25. Please read more on Waiting list page.

Removing Dew Claws at 4 days old

Today I took the puppies to have their dew claws removed.  Because they are so young, I didn't want a long road trip that would stress the puppies, so I chose the closest veterinary clinic to my house. (not my usual vet)

If you do not know what a dew claw is, its a claw that on the upper side of the paw, and tends to get caught in things like carpets.  When that happens it can tear the claw for a really painful injury.  Since they serve no particular advantage to the dog, most breeders choose to remove them.  This has to be done between 3-5 days while there is still no bone in the toe.

Maybe I will grow up to look like Mama.

Look how tiny our little puppies are!  They look like hampsters.
 The veterinary puts an anesthetic on the claw before he amputates it.  The puppies do cry a little, but then they go right back to sleep.
Dixie shakes with excitement as she wonders why we have come to this strange place.
Dixie looks pretty in pink...a new polka dot collar and leash!

Dixie has a hard time with these visits because strange people touch her puppies and then take them away for several minutes.  So we try to distract her by taking her outside while the procedure is being done.

Look!  Dixie's waste line is back!  Lucky girl!
