I have had miniature schnauzers since 1971. I have raised occasional litters during that time span. The past few years I have been striving to raise the quality level of schnauzers available in this area by breeding to AKC champions only . I was very pleased when the first such attempt resulted in an AKC champion being produced. My puppies are raised in my home. At this time I have 2 dogs, AKC champion Hurd's Blythewood Faerie Queen(now spayed) and her full blood brother from the 2nd litter,Hurd's Blythewood Near Perfect Picture(Buddy). He is now an AKC Grand Champion! Queenie and Buddy's mother,Abby, gave me 3 litters, with an AKC Champion being produced from each of the litters
The first pup of Queenie's first litter that was shown (Blythewood She's the Belle of the Ball),Bella,is now an AKC Grand Champion, with many best of breeds to her credit! Her littermate(Von Ruhr's Blythe Faerie), owned by Kathy Rager,is also an AKC Champion,with a Best of Breed and group third to her credit. Mama Abby's third and final litter produced Ch. Hurd's Belle Terre Road to Glory,AKA Milo! He finished with two 4 point majors. His proud owners are Kristen and Chris Murphy.They also own Bella. My goal is to breed for conformation, temperament,and health.My dogs are all healthy and happy. All, including all puppies raised, are vet checked,dewormed , and receive immunizations and vet care as needed. I do not ship my puppies. Please note: I raise only dogs that meet the miniature schnauzer standard--no toys or teacups, no partis, livers or whites, no supercoats! For current info see announcements under puppies for sale.
