They refer to their dogs as the "breeding crew" ... how tacky!

Edited to add from their website...

Quote:
Boarding: Our Miniature Schnauzer Puppies are ready to go to their new homes at 7-8 weeks of age. If a puppy is kept at Lone Star past 8 weeks of age at the customer's request, boarding will be charged at the rate of $10/day.
They seem to want to get rid of the pups fast.. I wouldn't think this would be a common practice among most breeders. If you've got a good home for a pup why charge per day if the owners can't pick up on an exact date?!

Well, the OP said they were looking for a dog from a breeder. Some people choose to adopt, others choose to buy from a reputable breeder. Either decision is fine to me and if Jammer wants to be sure he/she is getting a high quality schnauzer, there is nothing wrong with that.

Wellllll....I currently have a lab mix that was an adoptee and LET..ME..TELL...YOU...

She is a piece of work and a half. Food aggression, general wariness of people, the whole shabang. We got her at nine months. We've been hand feeding this dog for about a month with only slight progress with the food aggression. I have thought about adopting, but I have a nine year old. I also want more kids, so I really want to know where this dog is coming from. Our current dog is very touch and go and we might have to rehome her eventually. She's put teeth on me before and she absolutely can't be trusted. That's why I am hesitant to adopt.

ok I understand, just thought I'd put it out there but respect your decision either way as long as you get a pup from a good breeder and not a BYB. Though i still don't think you should let one bad experience keep you from adopting again (but not from the same place, from a place that screens better) OK i'll stop now I promise *hehe* I totally understand what you mean though you don't want to risk putting your children in an unsafe environment with an unpredictable "time bomb" dog. Good luck in your search!

PS: have you posted anything in the training section about your current dog, we may be able to help.
