We are a small, hobby - AKC show breeder originally from New Orleans, and live in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. We have been in love with miniature schnauzers for over 30 years! We do not have a kennel but do have a handful of miniature schnauzers that live with us in our home. Most of our retired champions live the life of luxury in Florida where they are the family pet.
Occasionally we breed in order to produce an outstanding "show dog". The best one or two puppies in a litter are held on to as a potential show dog. Since we can't keep them all, the rest are available for adoption. Sometimes we will have an older puppy that we decided not to show or a retired champion adult available. We try to match puppies or adults and their new families personality together. It's great keeping up with our schnauzers and their families through e-mail pictures and stories. Perhaps the greatest reward is hearing the wonderful stories from our schnauzers' new owners. These wonderful little dogs seem to make such a positive impact on everyone they meet!
We are members of the American Miniature Schnauzer Club, the Tampa Bay Kennel Club, and the Central Florida Miniature Schnauzer Club. We breed normal/clear dogs that have been tested for the recommended health screening by our parent club (AMSC).
Orleans Miniature Schnauzers have come a long way since we started showing over 20 years ago; one litter, one puppy, and one champion at a time. Thank you for visiting our website!
