Our first miniature schnauzer Nelly, a black & silver-version, came into our lives in 2003. She and the breed charmed us all with their intelligence and attitude so now in 2019, 16 years later, we have seven miniature schnauzers living in our homes.
Nelly left us in January 2016. Now we have only black minis; Tyra, Vera , Sven and Zoe are living with me in Vaasa and Bella, Elsa & Ebba are located in Vöyri with my parents. To our extended dogfamily does also Kajsa, a Finnish Hound, belong.
Ebba, Ch Heathkeeper´s Expect No Less, was our first showdog. Ebba is born in 2007 and comes from Johanna Similä at kennel Heathkeeper´s in Vaasa. In the beginning we had no plans for a showing career for our dogs, but when results started to drop in the showgrounds started to become more and more fun.
2008 Tyra was bought from the same kennel and 2010 Vera. Tyra (and Ebba) are in the third class in agility. In the show rings we have been very happy with Vera, she was a dream for a newbie like me in 2010. Vera is our first International champion and founding bitch for our breeding as mother of litter A & B. Her biggest throphy came in 2018, when she as a veteran won the Nordic Winner-competition.
In 2013 Sven came into our lives as our first male dog. He´s fun and very energetic. He finished his International Championship as 2,5 years old and I´m more than excited over his first puppies in our litter B. We kept both Zoe and Bella at home from this litter; the B-girls are very special for us.
Elsa, from our A-litter, has collected some champion titles and two of her litter mates have also been shown with CAC-results. Zoe, Ms Banker´s Choice, is a feminine version of her beautiful father and Bella, Ms Blind Date, is a younger version of her lovely mother.
All our dogs are health checked and sparely used for breeding; approximately every second year we will have puppies at home. We also use DNA tests on dogs that are used for breeding.
