Default asking around for schnauzer

Hi all, after i talked to a few breeders we found out a mini schnauzer would be a good dog for us. Only thing is the top of the line show dog breeders we talked to want way way way to much for a pup we are only going to get fixed....

If any one on this site breeds mini schnauzers and lives near Warner Robins, GA please let me know...

we are looking for female black or black sliver or white. We see to many salt & peppers around and would like one of the other colors.

We dont really want one that is AKC or CKC papers cause we are not going to breed, we are getting her fixed 100%.

I think it's a common misconception that buying pups from a breeder who shows means you are getting a dog who is not meant to be a companion. These breeders are giving you the pup because he is not quite what they are looking for in a breeding dog, so he is going to be a pet. Truth is good breeders do something with their dogs to prove they are something you cannot get from a shelter Schnauzer. These breeders show or work their dogs so that you can be sure you are getting everything you have read about, you will be getting a dog with that temperament and that look that you have decided fits your family. if you go to a breeder who does not try and prove their dogs are what Schnauzers are supposed to be then you might as well go to a shelter and save a life. If you have put the time and energy into studying breeds I assume you want to go to a breeder who is striving to make sure her dogs act and look like mini-Schnauzers are supposed to act and look like, going to a show breeder can often be the best way to find that.

I will try and find some breeders for you if you'd like, as far as price you'll have to compare them and see what you can afford. I don't know what a normal price is for the breed.

500 is fairly low priced for many breeds for a well bred dog..

Lower than that and likely you are going to a byb who doesn't care about health, temperament of dogs, breeding to the standard..

Have you considered looking at petfinder.. save a life and not support someone who is making a quick buck.

If you don't "need" one with papers (or understand the reason for getting a dog from a responsible breeder) then why not look into rescues and shelters?

ETA: Your profile shows you've been a member here since 2004 . . . have you bothered to read up on breeds, breeding, and the reasons for getting dogs from breeders vs. shelters/rescues/etc. ?????

A purebred dog from a responsible breeder for $50-$300? That is not possible. Breeders pay sever hundred dollars just to take their dogs to a single show. To have a dog show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, breeders/owners invest up to a $100,000 to get there. This is why you will see some dogs have more than 1 owner because they split the cost. It takes a lot of time and effort and money of course. Why would they sell you the dog for so cheap if they don't know you? The only place where you can get a dog for such price is a shelter or a puppy mill. A shelter is my pick!

I have read on the breed yes, my parents have also.. I have looked on petfinder did not see any thing my mom wanted. I do not want one with papers :\. There was some one around here that had a litter of pups and sold them at 200 but we got there to late and they were not going to breed again. They only wanted to breed there dog one time.

I'll just have to look around here some more maybe some one will pop up a littler near me.

the shelters near me are no good there dogs always have parvo and are sick or mixed breeds. I tired talking my mom into a mix. We do check the shelters here.. We have gone at least 2 times sense our dog died.

Why are you so adamant no papers? Even AKC and CanKC papers are a registering body.. nothing more. Here in Canada, if you are selling purebreds it's not a choice...

Papers vs not should not make a puppy cheaper.. unless you have gone to a really skeazy byb or mill.

50-300 is rescue prices or someone making a quick buck.

Badly bred dogs can have unstable temperaments and untold medical issues. It isn't a cheaper dog in the long run if it has endless problems, or acts nothing like the breed it is supposed to be.

Rescue.. or wait until you can afford a decent pet quality dog from a decent breeder. There are pets in every litter.

Well, papers do matter because they cost around $200. So some breeders, "the not so reputable ones", will not register their dogs and that way lower their cost and price. People who just want the cheapest dog will think they got a good deal even though that dog may not be of good quality.

Why is your mom so adamant about getting a purebred dog? If she is willing to go to a bad breeder it means she has no idea if her dog will look just like or act like a Schnauzer should, good breeder do things to ensure this. You sound like you should be going to a shelter or rescue, that way you'll be getting what you want (since having a perfect Schnauzer temperament does not sound like it matters all that much) at a lower price. Bring your mom to meet some of the shelter guys and she may just fall in love.
Look at some of these guys:
Tallulah: Adopt a Schnauzer: Tallulah Belle: Petfinder
Riley: Adopt a Schnauzer: Riley: Petfinder
Mooch: Adopt a Schnauzer: Mooch: Petfinder
Rudy: Adopt a Schnauzer: Rudy #6065: Petfinder
Thelma: Adopt a Terrier: Thelma: Petfinder
Louise: Adopt a Terrier: Louise: Petfinder
Denny: Adopt a Schnauzer: Denny: Petfinder
Hamish: Adopt a Scottish Terrier Scottie: Hamish MacConn (Mu: Petfinder
