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 Spring litters that are arriving in June. Now is a great time to get on the Waiting list.

We have a Breeding!

This is some exciting news!  Misty, our Miniature Schnauzer, bred with Bart the Red Poodle today.  Woo hoo!   I am so excited.  

Misty came into heat last week.  I was quite surprised with that, since I was expecting Coco to come into heat first.  Since Coco was so late, I just expected Misty would be late too.  Oh well, it is just so hard to plan these things!

At this point, I am wondering if Coco just skipped a heat.  (It does happen).  I am now hoping that Misty's fertile pheromones will encourage Coco to follow her example!

Misty's pregnancy will not be confirmed for another month.   I will let you know if there are any early indications (like morning sickness).  Based on the first date of the tie, July 28, the due date for our Miniature Schnoodle litter is Sept 29.    If whelping occurs as hoped, the litter would be 8 weeks on Nov 23.   Please understand that a successful tie between dogs does not guarantee conception....But it is a crucial event....and it does give us every reason to be 

Update:  First breeding July 28.   Second Breeding July 31
So the due date is either Sept 29  or  Oct 2.

Sammy's 1 year Update

This is Sammy's birthday gift from his Grandma and Grandpa

Update from Sammy's mom,

Hi Mary,

Its hard to believe the puppies are now 1 yrs old!  It feels like just yesterday I was at your house picking my little guy!  Sammy is doing great!  He has lots of friends in our building (dogs and people).  Sammy is 25 lbs and full of energy!  He loves to run around at the dog park and is unbelievably fast!  I am including some pictures for you.

Karen & Sammy

Maya (2 yrs) and Sammy (1 yr).

  What a beautiful family photo!  Pictured left to right are Debbie, Eric and Karen, with Schnoodles Maya and Sammy.  The photo was taken in Central Park on Eric and Karen's mother's birthday.   Eric and Debbie adopted Maya in 2012.  Eric's sister Karen, adopted Sammy in 2013.  So Maya and Sammy are cousin/siblings! Now how cool is that!  

Of course Sammy sleeps in my bed.
Sammys favorite toy is a water bottle.
 Thank you Karen, for the note!  I love the photos.  Sammy and Maya are so adorable.  And it is good to see you and your family are doing so well!  Best wishes to you all!   ---Mary

Update on Remy and Louie

Update from Remy & Louie's family:

I thought I would send an updated picture of Remy (3 yrs)  and Louie (1 yr).  Remy is 22 1/2 lbs and we are still doing agility and therapy dog activities.  Hopefully, we will get our 'Excellent' agility titles soon.  Louie is 19 1/2 lbs and has begun agility also and seems to have potential.  He is definitely a pistol and still very much a puppy but has a great disposition ans does Remy.  (So much for the most laid back of the litter!)   Remy has very soft wavy hair and Louie has more wiry fur-like hair.  He sometimes looks like Don King.  Louie is definitely the alpha dog and keeps the pot boiling.  Fortunately, Remy is OK with it.  I hope you and the dogs are doing well.  Say hi to Dixie for Remy and Louie.  She would be proud of her sons.

   Have a great summer.  ---Bob

Louie performing one of his tricks.  Awesome!!!

Hi Bob!
Thanks so much for your letter and update!  It is so good to see your handsome boys and to hear how well there training is going.  I especially love the Remy-in-the- Box trick!   Super cool!

Best wishes to you all!


Pukah's 1st Birthday

Happy Birthday Pukah!
A note from Pukah's family:
Hi Mary,

I can't believe the puppies are 1 year old today!  My mom made her 'grand-puppy' his very own cake today and he even has a friend over to play with.

Pukah has been an awesome addition to our family and everyone who meets him loves him.  Believe it or not, he has reached 26 lbs!  He loves to run and is faster than all the dogs he plays with and runs his 'Schnoodle 500'  in a giant loop around our yard for no other reason but to have fun.  I hope all the other brothers have had a great first year and we're looking forward to watching the next litter grow!


Hi Julie!
Thanks for your adorable photo and update.  Pukah sounds like a real joy!  I can't believe that he reached 26 lbs!  Where in the world does that size come from?   Bigger than any miniature Schnauzer I have seen, and bigger than his poodle Papa.  But there must have been some bigger poodle gene in the Papa genetics!  I have a feeling Pukah will be my biggest puppy ever. 

Thanks again, for sharing!  Best wishes to you and yours!


Happy Birthday Jackson!

The one year old, smiling in the park.

After a run.

A note from Jackson's family:
Hi!  I hope all is well!  Here is a picture of Jackson at age 1!  I can't believe he is a year already.  He is doing great!  - smart, cute, athletic and fun (and still a little too talkative)!  No celebration today, however....the boys are away at camp so we are postponing any real celebration until they can be part of it, which won't be until the end of July.  I will send pictures of his party then!  :)

Wishing all of you well - 
Erica and Family

Mischief!  Jackson has been known to go into my purse when he wants my attention!  It works! And is a good way to show off his 'drop' skills : )

Thank so much for all your lovely photos, and your update, Erica!   Jackson is so adorable!   I will look forward to Jackson's party photos!  Lucky puppy!  ---Mary

2 Years old! Teddy Webster Update

Hey Mary,

I have been meaning to send this update for a while....

Teddy Webster is a healthy 22 lbs at his 2 yr checkup.  The vet said that he is not overweight just seems to have developed a very broad chest which I think adds to his weight.  But when you consider that he was one of the smaller puppies, this sort of goes to show that you can only predict!  I went back in your blog to see birth weights and couldn't find them, but you did say in one post that Teddy was the smallest in the litter...and that the top of the range should be around 20 lbs.
Webster's New Haircut

Webster has been a real joy to have around, he has become a favorite of some people in the neighborhood due to his insistence on saying hello.  He won't move until he has greeted them.   He even attended a neighborhood dinner party for 20 and behaved!  He is also very smart, curious and vocal.  He has been very easy to train and we have kept the liter box available which was wonderful this winter.  He only used it once or twice, both times when the snow was taller than he was.  He also learned to wear balloon booties so his paws were protected from ice balls and all of the salt our neighborhood insists on using.  He was quite a sight with his red balloon booties and green jacket in the nose high snow.

Webster finished level one obedience and agility.  He got quite bored with the circle style of obedience training (but passed despite that!). On the other hand, he would do just about anything to get to run the agility course.  He also is a very good watchdog.  He makes sure that everyone knows he is protecting us from toads, cats, birds, delivery people and golfers.  We are working on that.  He does not really like cuddling and also does not like to sleep on the bed.  He prefers his space, which is the master bathroom.  But he does like playing on the bed, especially 'catch the hand under the covers', and is always nearby one of us.

We did have an unfortunate incident last Fall that set back his training and has made him quite timid and at the same time protective.  A large dog, whose owner couldn't control him, came after the two of us on a walk and terrified both of us.  Webster went after the dog, but the dog ended up cornering us before his owner could get him under control.  Luckily no injuries...but a big wariness around other dogs.  As a result, Webster now lets everyone he does not recognize, know he won't take any grief.  My friendly little boy grew up.  We are working on some training to help him know how to be polite to strangers and not be afraid.  It is taking a while, but seems to be slowly working.

I have attached a collage of recent pictures and one of him with his new haircut.  His color lightens considerably when he has short hair and his undercoat is very soft.  We get so many comments on his color and cuteness!

Webster is a real joy to have around and we thank you for that.  Hope this finds you all well and happy.

Susan, Rob and Webster

Teddy Webster at 8 weeks with Susan and Rob

Thank you so much, Susan for taking the time to updtate us on Webster's progress!  I love his haircut!  It is so adorable....a real Teddy Bear face!

I am so glad that Webster's training is going so well.  I am so sorry to hear about the incident with the mean dog! Sometimes bad things happen despite our best efforts.  But this is a good reminder to us all to always do our best to be aware of  what dogs are in our vicinity, so we can be avoid unruly dogs whenever possible. Thank  goodness, there were no injuries!  I am so glad you are both OK.

Thanks again!  And best wishes to you all!
