Miniature Schnauzers come in three color combinations currently accepted by the AKC standard: Black, black and silver and salt and pepper. Our PRIMARY focus is the solid black. White schnauzers, while accepted by FCI standards and shown overseas, are considered a disqualification in the United States, so, WE DO NOT BREED THIS COLOR!


We breed for soundness, conformation and disposition. Miniature Schnauzers make a true family pet, fitting themselves into your family and winning hearts as they go. Highly intelligent, the breed does well in obedience and makes a good watch dog; indeed, nothing goes unnoticed when you have a Miniature Schnauzer around the home! They are clean and very good for those who want a non-shedding dog. A good brushing every few days keeps the coat clean and tangle free and professional grooming every 6-8 weeks keeps them looking sporty and debonair as a schnauzer should!
