Southern Pride Schnauzers.

As of Feb 1,2021, prices on our puppies start at $1500 & go up depending on many factors. We prefer to sell to pet homes only, but breeders may inquire & must have excellent VET References among other references. We do not offer breeding rights on every litter. I reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone I don’t feel would be a good home to one of our babies. All of our puppies are raised inside our home, very socialized, loved, handled daily, & go to their new homes pre-spoiled. We require our puppies to be eating dry kibble before they go to their new homes. Puppies will come with their shot & worming record, a toy, some food, & a one year health guarantee on genetics from the date of birth. Puppies sold as (Pets Only) will (NOT) receive registration papers of any kind. NO EXCEPTIONS! Pet homes will be required to spay/neuter their pet! We can show you the parents registration papers to your puppy when you pick up your puppy if that is an issue. If registration papers are required, be prepared to pay breeding price which starts at $2500 & goes up depending on many factors.

ALL of our dogs is AKC & Health Tested!

  •  (All deposits/payments are NON-refundable & NON-transferrable)

  • Remaining balance is due in CASH on the day you pick up your puppy!
  • We can ONLY accept personal checks for deposits, or I can send you an invoice so you can pay with credit/debit cards or checking account. The 3% service fee will be added. You can also pay deposits with money order, Cashier check through your bank, or money gram through Walmart.
  •  CASH only for the remaining balance of your puppy on the day he or she is being picked up!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!


Please CONTACT me prior to sending a deposit and check availability on the puppy you are interested in. We do allow 3 business days to receive your deposit & we will not let someone else send a deposit on the same puppy during those 3 days. We suggest getting a tracking number when mailing deposits & letting is know when it is expected to arrive. I do mark a puppy sold as soon as I receive a deposit.

  I cannot & will not hold a puppy without a deposit!  

The ONLY time we don’t take a deposit on a puppy is when a puppy hasn’t been sold by 8 weeks of age & is ready to go.


Shipping Costs:

I can meet in person in Rogersville, Kingsport, Morristown TN, at my local police station or at my vet office during business hours in Gate City, VA at no additional charge. If driving past any of these places is required (kingsport & morristown is an hour away), an additional fee will be applied for gas & time.

Flights will require a flight nanny & the cost will be the buyers responsibility. We have an awesome flight nanny we use & she keeps everyone updated as she travels with the puppy. No puppy will ever be shipped via Cargo by us.


We NO LONGER allow customers to come to our home. We will update with pictures every other week & can send short videos & will FaceTime if requested. This is for the protection of our puppies & dogs against contagious diseases & for our own family safety!

We will meet in a safe, public & convenient location only. If this stops you from buying a puppy from us, we HATE you missed the opportunity to have one of our pre-spoiled babies… 

I’ve bred schnauzers since 2003. 

Additional Stay:

 Unless otherwise stated by me, puppies are ready for their new homes at 8 weeks of age & arrangements should be made to pick up puppy at that time. However, I will do what is best for my puppies & will not let them leave before I feel they are ready to go to their new homes. Sometimes they do have to stay longer due to size/maturity. 

Requests for puppy stay beyond 8 weeks (unless I feel they need to stay longer) will be subject to a boarding fee.  Boarding fees are $15 per day or $100 per week.
