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 4 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 are so excited for our winter puppies. I also hope for a litter in Summer 2018.

Almost 1 week old!

The puppies spend a lot of time sleeping, but when they are awake, they are wiggly as a worm.  It's hard to keep them still to take a picture.

 For the first 14 days of a puppies life, they live in silence and darkness.  They can neither hear, nor see.  Their ears and eyes are completely closed.  But their sense of smell is very keen and they are acutely aware of their surroundings.  They may be fast asleep in a heap, but as soon as the mother enters the whelping box, their is a whirl of activity amongst the puppies.  They know she is there!  They squirm along as best as they are able and find her cozy side in no time flat. 

Although the pups world is limited, it is still very important that they have human contact.  Even just holding them a few minutes begins their bonding with people.  We also have a blanket with people smells put in the box, so they are quite accustomed to the scent of humans since birth.

Today, the puppies weight check indicates gains of 3-4 oz since birth.  They range in weight from 11.3 - 14.2 oz. They are growing well.

Dixie never looks terribly comfortable as the puppies nurse with great enthusiasm.  But she is very patient and certainly puts her puppies well being above her own comfort.
