We raise our Miniature and Toy Schnauzers on five (5) acres located in Western North Carolina in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are in a country setting with a view of the Mountains surrounding us. Our Schnauzers receive plenty of exercise. They are handled and played with daily. They enjoy playing and clowning with us and each other. Today’s Miniature and Toy Schnauzer is an elegant dog. It’s a wonderful breed that has all the attributes of a big dog in a small body. They are sturdy dogs that are strong, healthy, loving and very people oriented. A Miniature or Toy Schnauzer offers the most wonderful companionship to the whole family. He is very trainable and bright with a naturally happy temperament. The Schnauzer is of German origin. He can even be recognized in pictures almost back to the 15th century.
On appearance alone, the Miniature Schnauzer deserves the popularity he enjoys. It is however his lively, inquisitive character that launched him e. g. in the US into the top ten ranking among all breeds in recent years. The Miniature and Toy Schnauzer is big enough to really be a dog, and small enough to share your comfortable chair. Most people will select this breed for its initial livability. A good one is by nature alert, friendly, intelligent, vigorous and, most important, long-lived.
The Schnauzers intelligence expresses itself in many ways. One look into his face is to sense his ever-active mind and fun-loving personality. The learning capacity of the Miniature and Toy Schnauzer is proverbial, and limited only by the teacher. Schnauzers learn quickly as a rule, and in time can be taught almost anything a dog is capable of learning. The only requirements are firmness, repetition, patience and, above all, KINDNESS.
Frequently called “the dog with the human brain”, their reasoning faculties are uncanny. Whereas most breeds think in doggy way, Schnauzers react in a much more human fashion, and in a way we humans can better understand. Schnauzers are, in fact, pathetically dependent on human companionship and understanding. Without it they become mistrustful and dull. Once a Schnauzer makes up his mind about his owner, he seldon changes his idea of worth. When closeness is achieved, he gives you his full devotion and from that point on your moods and your commands are his chief concern.
We acquired our first Miniature Schnauzer several years ago and have been ‘addicted’ ever since.
We do require a deposit to hold a puppy. The balance is due when the puppy is picked up. AKC or CKC registration papers. sales contract, health record along with a pedigree of ancestry are given with each puppy. All our dogs are sold as family pets and usually adapt very readily with their new home. We do ask that any dog purchased from us be returned to us if the buyer is unable to keep it.
