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.

Announcing our litter of 6 Schnoodle puppies!

Saturday evening, March 12, at 5:30pm the first of our beautiful Schnoodle puppies was born.  Over the next 3 hours the other 5 puppies followed.  The birthing was smooth, and Dixie handled it well!

The survival instinct is very strong in the newborn pup.  They have no problem finding their food.

Dixie is healthy, eating and running outside for potty breaks, and taking care of the litter like the good mother she is. 
Exhausted after 3 hours of birth, Dixie rests knowing her puppies are safe at her side.

The puppies all look very healthy and vigorous.  However, the next 48 hours is the most crucial time in the pups life, as that is when their is the highest mortality rate.  Most often there is no known cause.  

We are keeping our babies warm, and checking on them and Dixie often to make sure they are eating and looking well.  So far everything looks great and we are very thrilled with this litter!

Here is the break down of the litter:

5:30 pm - Tigger- apricot Male  -- 9.1 oz
6:10 pm  - Toffee - cream Male -- 8.2 oz
6:55 pm  - Ginger - apricot Female -- 8.9 oz
7:14 pm  - Scarlet - apricot Female -- 8.1
7:28  - Peaches- cream Female -- 10.2
8:05pm  -- Taco - apricot Male --8.2

We were not able to get the weights of the last of the pups since they came so quickly and then it was evident Dixie wanted to keep the litter around her.  (My digital scale attaches to the computer, 2 floors up) But I will be weighing them regularly and recording those weights to be sure they are eating and growing well.   The most important thing to watch for is that their weights continue to increase and do not decline.

Additionally, by following the growth pattern of the puppy from birth to 6 weeks, it will be evident whether the puppy will grow to an adult toy size, or a miniature Schnoodle.
