Hello, and welcome to my website. We are a very small hobbiest, who take our dogs very seriously. The time and effort we expend into each of these wonderful dogs shows!
We live in beautiful South Central Texas, nestled between San Antonio and Austin, with our amazing tiny schnauzer babies. We only have a very few canine family members for a reason.... These are our pets as well. We occassionally have puppies that we truly enjoy. You can see that they are the most loveable and emotionally healthy puppy you could ever find, while enjoying and sharing our love of the schnauzer. We only have a few litters per year. We want to ensure that we have just the number of babies that can be raised in an extremely clean, healthy, and personalized environment, while improving the liver toy lines with a good thick shafted coat. Due to the genetic diversity of our males we have had teacup, toy, and small minis, which are perfect for the family or ranch life.
Our puppies are snuggly held by one of our family members each day to ensure they bond with mom and their human family. Once they are big enough to venture from mom's bed their day is spent with mom and me in our beautiful great room. At that time, they also begin to eat premium dog food, with holistic supplements, along with nursing. They begin their training at 4 weeks old using the UGODOG puppy pad system. Our babies come with that early start and by 8 weeks they often are going to the pad to potty. They are also taken to a licensed veterinarian for a health check up. They have age appropriate vaccinations and are wormed every 2 weeks. They are nomally groomed twice before going to their new home. Usually they are accepting of their first grooming, because our personalized attention creates a very loving and trusting puppy. By the way, yes, every baby gets a kiss each night too. We just can't help it!
Everyone takes part in normalizing your puppy to human interaction. By the time they go home with you they have been played with and have slept on our chests to get their baby rest for hours. Our puppies are not shy, scared of other dogs or show signs of other issuses that puppies sent home too early or under socialized do. You will take home an outgoing family member who is ready to fit in.
My family has years experience with animals. Mrs B was raised on a farm and helped raise and whelp many different animals. She also had pre-nursing training and has worked with handicapped children. This dedication to excellence has been applied to our practices with our own wonderful schnauzers. We love to research and also have a vet in the family, We're happy to share our lives and love with our precious little schnauzer babies. We just have to make sure our grandbabies get just as many hugs or we're accused of having preference by our children!
We can guarantee that we have tried our very best to ensure that our dogs are the healthiest possible. We stand behind our dogs and our guarantee on our dedication to them. Plain and simple. There is so much information out there, we'll focus on customizing information to help you see why schnauzers are so wonderful.
We feed our dog Eukanuba Small Breed and Back to Basic meat and organs which are great sources of natural protein, 71%. We have considered the RAW FOOD DIET, but have made a decision to avoid that as studies show that dogs who are not hurt by salmonella still pass 30% of the salmonella in their stools, etc. We prefer not to have that bacteria if at all possible for the safety of the humans and children around.
Please enjoy our website and pictures. You don't have to worry about a pushy person here. We want to make sure that our puppies go to the home that is right for them and match you to the right puppy for you when we have a pup available. This may mean referring you to someone else. We're that serious in making the right match.
WE LOVE PEOPLE, AS MUCH AS WE LOVE OUR SCHNAUZERS! THANK YOU FOR VISITING!
My opinion on size:
Teacups - Under 7lbs
Toys - Under 13 lbs
Champion Lined Minis - 12 to 14 inches
Note: The AKC calls all schnauzers in the Mini size and under "Miniature Schnauzer." There is NO AKC Standard for toy or teacup size, this is all breeder opinion." The Mini schnauzer standard is over 12 in and under 14 in. The AKC accepts smaller sizes for registration. However if your going to breed minis you should have champions or high end lines in your minis!!!
The weight guestimate game: Most weight "guestimates" as I have called them are forced on breeders due to anxious clients whom want a specific size, be it smaller or other. The problem is that in all the best effort to guess, there is no guarantee. I have seen some schnauzers leggy and fragile being called a teacup by some, but they may be skinny, but they are not tiny. We try to stay within confirmational square schnauzer standard even when smaller. Many larger mini sized are just leggy non-conformational dogs. For mini sized we recommend only those with champions in the line.
We're focusing on quality at Mrs B's, so we hope you understand we cannot guarantee size. We can do an educated guess, give you the facts, and let you estimate with us. Just imagine all the money we could save if the doctors could tell us our children would grow to size XXX and we could buy clothes super clearance years ahead of time. Thanks for understanding. We don't want you to be disappointed. We want you to feel treated honestly. We are not happy with the quality of many of the teacups and toys we see sold over the internet. We love the schnauzer breed, but feel there is a place for the smaller schnauzers, meeting the same build as their larger parts. Most of our teacups are not micro teacups, but we do have them out there that are 4.5 lbs grown. Most teacups are in the 5-6.5lb range. If we tell you it is too close to tell and that they could stay a bit smaller or get a bit smaller that is an honest guesstimate. We also are not charging $1800-$3000 for them either. Our dogs are nice dogs and regardless of the size, you are getting a wonderful dog. We don't want to be the person like others I hear from that have the 14lb teacup. We are also glad the the RARER "lost colors" have been resurrected and preserved and new enhancements are being developed for the breed we love. This includes the chocolates, whites, and partis! Of course we love the black, Salt and Pepper, and black & silvers too!
Teacup and toy schnauzers have been around for some time! What makes it even more odd and the average person may never know, but many of the same people who criticize smaller schnauzers and claim they do not sell teacups, toys, or even the lost colors, often do via a relative, friend, or their local newspaper so the secret of it does not get out!!!! I see that all the time and hear of it in various parts of the country. So ignore the rant, its just a marketing ploy of many people patting themselves on the back and your dollars to the bank. We always ask can a critical or mean person produce nice puppies???? We feel you have the right to find that perfect companion and we refuse to criticize others breeding programs. We like teacups, toys and minis. Each have their differences and we'll be happy to discuss that with you as you look for that perfect match! The standard colors of today was the rare colors in the early years of the schnauzer.
Note: We specialize in confirmation no matter what the size. We are not a kennel! This is our serious love of schnauzers and we love all our pets! If your looking for someone that has every size, color, sex at the same time, that won't be us!! We want you to say OMG because our few pups are stunning and you want to share in the love of the schnauzer and our love of the liver lines.
WE HAVE WORKED SEVERAL YEARS TOWARDS LIVER (CHOCOLATE) LINES AND OUR INTENT IS LIVER, LIVER/TAN, LIVER PARTI, LIVER/PEPPER (CHAMPAGNE). WE DO HAVE OTHER COLORS AT TIMES THAT POP UP DUE TO OTHER COLORS IN THE LINES. OUR LIVERS ARE SOME OF THE NICEST IN THE US! WE ARE PROUD OF OUR CURRENT MALES. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR WEST COAST AND NE US CONTACTS THAT HELPED START THE QUALITY FOUNDATION WE HAVE SEVERAL YEARS BACK AFTER PURCHASING DOGS WITH DNA ISSUES HERE IN TX. WE DO CO-MANAGE A CHAMPION LINED FEMALE THAT IS THE TRADITIONAL MINI COLOR.

FREE ANNOUNCEMENT LIST
FIND OUT WHEN MRS B'S PUPS ARRIVE!!! We have a very limited number of pups per year, so be the 1st to hear we have had a litter. We have had some people wait over a year to get a pup they wanted! We will also be happy to refer you to someone that we feel holds the same qualities that we do if we do not have any puppies. We also at times will have a puppy listed that is owned by a good friend or a relative, which will be noted. Please see our payments page for more information. We ask no deposits be made until you are approved for one of our puppies and we confirm it is available. Yes we do have people contacting us that they want the puppy and are shocked we like to ask questions and get to know about them. We do need to meet all our puppy parents in person, so local pickup is a must. So please don't be offended if we ask. The welfare of our puppies are our most concern. We have very minimally allowed just a few of our pups go to small breeders who spoil them rotten. Since we have just a few pups each year we will not hold or commit a puppy without a "non-refundable" deposit. Please don't ask if a "non-refundable" deposit is refundable. We prefer to wait until birth for a deposit to ensure it is the perfect match. Most of our pups go to past or referred parents.
"I'm Mrs B's Sidney Troy, little 5lb teacup. My family picked me up on way home to Argentina."
"Brieanna - Liver Pepper - Mom came from British Columbia! Mom snuck me to the hotel room :) She got me this new sweater to keep me warm in the cold winter visits to the little miniature horses and their toys."
"My mom flew in from El Salvador just to get me! After arriving home I rode like a champ on our 8 hour drive. Such a nice family that my human brother, Mrs B's son flew down to El Salvador with some other young people. I was very happy because my new human brother was home from school too this summer! "
"My mom has to keep an eye on me because I blend in with the Canadian snow! Mr Darby"
WE WANT TO MEET EVERY PARENT. WE DO NOT SHIP ANY PUPPY AND YOU CAN ONLY PICK UP LOCALLY. YOU ARE WELCOME TO FLY INTO SAN ANTONIO OR AUSTIN TO MEET US.
THE MALE FALLACY!!!!!! READ ON!!!!!
We hear all the time, "I want a female because I don't want a dog that sprays or humps." I can assure you that females can hump and that females don't spray they can squat and mark, yes mark. Neutering a female or male at a young age can minimize or eliminate this from happening at all. If you neuter a male before he lifts his leg he will most likely squat the rest of his life. As far as personality I can tell you everyone that has feared owning a male because of this that took a male home is so happy they did. Males are the most loving and the most perfect of companions. Like in the wild, the female, or pack leader, is just that. If a female is content in her bed and you call her, she is going to be content in her bed unless she wants to come to you. A male will be at your side telling you I'm here, I love you at almost all times. If you've always had a female companion pet, you might just be surprised at how wonderful a little male and how different and loving they are. They simply are the greatest! Now don't get me wrong, I love little females too, but if you want someone who is content on a plane, watching T.V., sitting quietly in your purse while you shop or under your coat, male it is!
WHATS IN A PUPPY?
Again, we are not a kennel. Our dogs are our pets too. They often sleep with us, sit on out laps why lazying around, play with us while gardening, etc. They get the same special treats, fancy shampoos, conditioners, dental treatments, etc. as we would recommend for your new puppy companion. We have a closet of clothes for various holidays, fancy dog carriers, collars, leashes, and tons of toys. They have fancy beds all the things that go with having these wonderful little joys. In addition they do get vaccines, vet visits, teeth cleanings, etc. And we feed them great dog food. We feel their well being is our responsibility. And that does not address all the time spent loving and caring. There is nothing we enjoy more that kissing on and watching a little puppy mature. It really is true. This is something you have to love for the breed. What you end up with is a pup that has personality plus. Then we expect you to take over and continue the journey to a healthy and social life.

Over the years we have been asked or told that new puppy owners worry about taking a new puppy on vacation with them. We totally agree that a new puppy does create the need for a little more precautions until all vaccines are complete, but that is true at home too! Vacation time can be the perfect time to bond with a new puppy, especially if you'll be in a position you have free and down time. Exposure to other family members is great for socialization. Very young puppies will be working on potty training for some time so don't worry. Bond, enjoy, and spend some time with a new family member on your vacation!
Most of our testing and/or certification Exceeds AKC requirements.
Any Mrs B's AKC Schnauzer Sire is genetically tested PRA A Free! This is a gene that can lay dormant for generations but can cause devastating eye problems in schnauzers! It is not a required test! Extra testing by Mrs B's to help assure optimum health of your puppy! We were one, if not the 1st in the country to do to all our sires!!!!
SEE MY LINKS PAGE FOR AMAZING STUFF!! ALSO SEE MY AKC LINK FOR MORE GREAT INFO ON SCHNAUZERS! WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.
100% TRACK RECORD - Puppies tested by owners of a Mrs B's that were CERF level tested ALL PASSED! That says something. Quality Tested!!!
5 YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE!!!
With conditions. if you keep your puppy on Nuvet. Potty training head start with the UGODOG PAD! Please note, when applicable we AKC DNA certify our dogs. In addition, I'm working on having them all CERF level eye tested by one of South Central Texas's most reknown Vet Ophthalmologist for ultimate quality!!! All our dogs have seen a vet dental specialist and they all have good bites. Why do I do this, so you have peace of mind on the quality of our dogs! Pedigrees, championship lines, etc. does not replace good testing. We even have some dogs genetically tested PRA A free! We are one central Texas's first Toy/Tecaup Schnauzer lover to DNA profile AKC non-required females! Mrs B's proudly says we have never had an AKC initiated inquiry into our puppies parentage!!! To keep genetic diversity our dogs were hand picked from across the U.S. Plus since they are our pets as well, we're picky.
Our dogs receive a MASS titer NEOPAR vaccine for extra protection against PARVO and a MASS titer NEOVAC2 for DISTEMPER and Kennel Cough. Did you know the NEOPAR AND NEOVAC2 start providing antibody build-up for the best protection immediately. These are the two best vaccines available! They are so safe you can give to a 5 weeks old puppy! The normal puppy vaccine takes 3 doses to start being really effective. This is a clinical fact! Why don't most use this? It cost $$$ more, but we want our dogs to have the best chance possible! Don't let anyone tell you different to save $$$ Parvo, new Parvo strains and distemper is on the rise in the US. Partially do to lack of vaccination and the other due to no vaccination due to the "holistic" approach.
Almost everytime we go to the vet he has seen someone with a puppy sentenced to death with a puppy disease, most likely not vaccined. We support initial immunizations. Your pup's life may depend on it! After that, we recommend you be selective not to allow your vet to over vaccine your baby. Microchipping for FREE, unless requested!
DID YOU KNOW THAT IN 1907 WHEN THE CURRENT STANDARD COLORS WERE SET THAT THE RARE COLORS WERE BRED OUT! THANK GOODNESS THAT DIDN'T DESTROY THE "LOST" COLORS AND BROUGHT THEM BACK. THE AKC DOES ACCEPT THESE SIZES AND COLORS AS MINIATURE SCHNAUZER REGISTRATION!!!
Rescued Schnauzers Need Love Too! Visit your local Schnauzer Rescue Page for adoptable rescued Schnauzers if a puppy is not for you! A breed specific rescue has the well being of the breed in mind and will be honest with any personality or health issues. Don't support glorified puppy mills!!! Watch for multiple breed or puppy extravaganzas. A good breeder just does not have to do this.
WE JUST LOVE THIS VINTAGE STYLE PICTURE OF A MRS B'S PAST PUP - MARINO
It's always hard for us to determine who is more blessed, our Mrs B's parents or one of our few pups who have gotten such wonderful homes over the past several years!!!!
Now here's a story with this little guy. While on vacation Mrs B's son said you should see this schnauzer jamming to Reggae music on You Tube. We all laughed, then Mr B said that looks like one of our pups! When he looked at who posted it, we recognized our favorite Austin Drummers call name! It was Marino a grown Mrs B's Pup.
WHAT ARE MRS B's EXTENDED FAMILY SAYING OVER THE YEARS?
"He is perfect. He maybe little but he thinks he is as big as the other dogs around here. I think he is going to be the boss"
"It is obvious that he is a champion in many ways. He handled the travel like a champion, handled 8 hours in the car like he was born to it. Just an amazing animal. He is a wonderful addtion to our family"
"We couldn't be happier. She is the light of our lives. She is well adjusted and friendly with everyone. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect dog!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for our perfect little princess"
"I have to say he is the most affectioniate schnauzer I've every been around. I believe in my heart it had to be from good parenting skills from you. Sincerly...sincerly.. I know that all your care made him the dog that he is"
"If anyone else wants a schnauzer they will have to wait for one of yours or they will be terribly disappointed and mad at me for having the better dog. LOL"
"You have to understand I have a old vet...a man of few words. He said that pup is gorgeous and what a great job. Mrs B's are to thank for that"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful care that you have taken in her breeding. It was so impressive to enter you beautiful home and she and the the other pups are so clean and happy! It was refreshing especially after that whole weekend of searching for the right pup and only being disappointed and saddened by the care we found them in"
"I don't know what I would do without her. She is the love of my life. I'm getting the itch for another"
"When it comes to that point when we get another dog, no matter where we're at, we want another one of your dogs. He is the sweetest dog and brings us so much joy"
"I will wait for one of your dogs the color I want. My brother has one and I just love the personality"
"I am totally floored at the generous gift bag sent home with our perfect puppy. You really do love these babies"
"I've owned several dogs over my life, but I've never, ever had a puppy this smart and so freindly. I can tell a lot of love and care went into our little angel. Thanks for such a perfect little girl"
"In testimony to you folks, Madonna is the smartest, most intuitive and most expressive dog I have ever had. As you can tell I am enamored by her. Of course, she's beautiful with a coat like mink but her personality makes her very, very special. She was everything you said she was and so much more. Everthing that she is today is because you fostered these things within her"
"I didn't get a puppy from you because you did not have a litter at the time and I could not wait several months. I can't believe how helpful you were to help me find a puppy like I wanted from someone else. Your kindness when you're not even getting anything in return is commendable. When I'm ready for another I hope you have a litter ready because I'm getting one"
"Just staying in touch. Can you believe that people ask me often if my little guy is a show dog. He is more than I could have imagined and is so handsome."
"Every year our vet says he has never seen a more people loving dog. Thanks again for this wonderul pup that makes my life complete"
THANKS TO ALL YOU SWEET PEOPLE!!!! SOME OF OUR LUCKY CANINE COMPANIONS HAVE BEEN TO EUROPE AND OTHER LIVED IN AFRICA.
Chocolate is good for your health!!!!
