We are so glad you found us! We have a few select litters a year. Our next anticipated litter of miniature schnauzers and miniature schnoodles are expected Fall 2021. There are three spots on the miniature schnoodle waitlist. The miniature schnauzers waitlist is full. We are also anticipating a litter of standard poodles early 2022 from Wren! We are currently accepting deposits and contracts for that waitlist.

The process to get one of our puppies:

  1. Get on the desired waitlist: Print deposit contract for desired breed, sign it as well as sending in a nonrefundable deposit check of $350 that applies to the purchase price. You must speak to Debbie on the phone before mailing it in. Please call on Thursdays anytime. She works other days, and has a packed schedule. We apologize if you are not able to reach us on the first try. We will sign and mail a copy of your contract and noting that the deposit is paid for your records. IF THERE IS NO DEPOSIT YOU ARE NOT ON THE WAITLIST.
  2. The waitlist is updated and available on our website. Your place in line for choosing your specific puppy is available there.
  3. When the litter is born, we will post to Instagram and Facebook, as well as contacting you directly if you are on the waitlist. You will receive photos starting at 4 weeks old, as well as on our social media accounts.
  4. Puppy choice day is at 6 weeks old. We have learned that at that age their personalities really shine and people are able to make their selection. You will be contacted the week before to set a time to come by and meet them to make your choice. If you desire, please bring a t-shirt in a ziploc bag with your name on it for your puppy. It will be for you to take home at 8 weeks old and smell like mom for your new little family member.
  5. At 7 weeks old, the puppies will get their exam and first set of vaccinations. We will have you send a check for the remaining balance due at 7 weeks, or plan on bringing cash when the puppies are 8 weeks old. We unfortunately are not able to accept credit cards, nor day of pick up checks, but can accept Zelle or Venmo.
  6. When your puppies are 8 weeks old they are ready to go home with you! We will schedule that with you at the 6 week choice day. If you are unable to take them on the exact day, we will work with you and set up a reasonable boarding fee.

Currently, we are unable to respond to the huge volume of emails, messages, and voicemails. Hopefully, this information answers your questions. If you are interested in placing a deposit, or have further questions please call Debbie anytime on Thursdays. That phone number is (719)243-3664. We also have reviews listed on our Facebook page, and photos on both Instagram and Facebook.

Who We Are

Wonderful Miniature Schnauzer, Miniature Schnoodles, and Standard Poodle puppies bred for health, temperament, service dog potential, and beauty.

For over 20 years Debbie St. Louis, Colorado Springs veterinarian and her family of 7 have raised hypoallergenic schnauzer puppies and now poodle and schnoodle babies. We do a few select litters each year. Each puppy is trained, evaluated and handled with the utmost care as members of our family.  We are very careful about the health history of our parents, the nutrition of all the dogs and the health of the puppies.

It is a wonderful experience to bring the joy of new life into the new homes of caring people.  We give careful attention to every detail for your new family member. 

The Science behind our breeding-  We health test our parents for inherited diseases and choose very carefully on their personality which most breeders do not do. We continue to run their blood work lifelong. Our dogs eat premium food for good brain development and our parents are our pets and live in the house and go hiking with us their whole life.  We have a health guarantee and microchipping,  We do neurostimulation training from day 4 to 14 as they do for therapy and service dogs.  Then when they are older we start potty training and play trainings and getting used to life so that they are well adjusted.  We know that the time invested in the parents and puppies is important. Our puppies are out there as service dogs and people allergic to dogs can enjoy one of ours! Check out our health testing pages. 

We have affectionately called our forested place in Black Forest Colorado, Spice Mountain Homestead from  Ecclesiasties’ beloved love story of the Savior and his bride.   We now have 5 adult daughters, 2 son in laws and 2 granddaughters. Elizabeth, my daughter, is helping with the website and communication. We still have our beloved 4H livestock goats and sheep and Dr. Debbie works part time in veterinary medicine.  Terry is a home builder.
