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.

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!

We sell our puppies through our Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to be contacted with updates on the next litter email me at GrowingPuppies@gmail.com

Update: We hope for a litter this winter. I will email my contact list when our female is bred. I also hope for a litter in early spring 2018.

Dams & Sires

Coco Chanel at 6 mths of age
We currently own two breeding female miniature Schnauzers in the white color.  They are in the Small Size and the Miniature Size.  We breeding these two sizes to Red Poodles of the corresponding size, to achieve the beautiful shades of apricot.  Occasionally we have a red puppy.  The red is hard to find in the poodle, and even harder to achieve in a Schnoodle.

About Coco Chanel
Toy Schnauzer:   Height 11 inches at shoulders   Weight 11 lbs

Coco is a Small Schnauzer and will produce small and toy sized Schnoodles. She stands 11 inches tall at the shoulders and weighs 12 lbs.   Her fur is bright white, thick and soft like a bunny.  This superior coat quality is called a Mega Coat.  Coco will produce amazing puppies.  Her disposition is super friendly to everyone she meets.  She will roll over on her back for a belly rub when she sees you!
Coco at 1 year old...Her small size gives her a perpetual puppy look:)

About Misty:

Miniature Schnauzer:   14 inches at the shoulders,  23 lbs

Misty is our newest Miniature Schnauzer bred for AKC conformation.  She is on the larger end of the Miniature Size.   She has beautiful lines and a gorgeous white coat that has thick soft waves when it grows long.  Misty's puppies will require regular brushing to keep their coats free of mats.

Misty's disposition is very sweet.  She is much quieter than any Schnauzer I have met.  Though you may not experience this, as she is not quiet when strangers come to see puppies.   She is eager to please and has been a breeze to train.

About Ricky

Red Poodle
Height 12 inches   Weight 14 lbs

Ricky at 3 months old
Ricky is the newest stud Poodle that we have added to our breeding line.  He is a good size for both our Toy Schnauzer and our Miniature Schnauzer.   Ricky is an AKC large Toy Red Poodle from a 30 year breeder producing quality Champion breeding lines.    Ricky is sweet, loving, smart and has a wonderful all round temperament.  He will sire gorgeous Red Schnoodle puppies.

Ricky has solid Red breeding lines and when bred with white throws apricots and occasional dark red puppies.   He has been bred for beauty, health and temperament.

Ricky at 1 year old
We always work with quality breeders to provide the Red Poodle Studs for our litters.  Red Poodles with solid red bloodlines are very difficult to find.   We go to much effort to achieve the Apricot color that we desire.

I only choose AKC registered poodles to be the stud because it helps ensure better quality puppies.  The AKC registry is the most comprehensive registry available.  It requires regular inspections of breeders. It also has tighter controls on the registration of dogs  to track the bloodlines of the dog.  Breeders who are knowledgeable of their bloodlines are better able to ensure their puppies come from healthy genetics.

Update on Dixie:
We have spayed and retired, Dixie, the mother of our past litters. Dixie produced many wonderful puppies and now she is relaxing and being spoiled as a family pet.

About the Genetics of the White Color:

. I have had a few questions about whether White is a defect in the Schnauzer.  The white gene does not carry any health defects.  The white color in Schnauzers goes back to very early Schnauzer breeding lines.   Although the white colored Schnauzer is not allowed in the AKC show ring, AKC does register White Schnauzers and recognize them as pure bred.  White Schnauzers have always been allowed to show in the UKC dog shows in Europe.  

The white color is not albino.  Research has indicated that white and red come from the same gene but whites have a fading gene that hides the red color.  I have seen some tinge of red color on young Schnauzer puppies that has grown out with age. Since the large Schnauzer was bred down by crossing it with the Poodle and the Affenpincher in order to get the Miniature size, it is not surprising that the recessive white gene that is found in the poodles, would also have been present in the early breeding lines or the Miniature Schnauzer.   

When the White Schnauzer is bred to the Red Poodle the color produced will be shades of red....from creme to dark red.  The red color gene is present in all the puppies.  But the depth of red is determined by how much the fading gene is present.  I have had reds that lighten with age and cremes that have darkened with age.  It is an interesting color phenomena....but the shades of apricot are always beautiful!
