CHAMPION TINKER TAILOR IS SUNSHINE'S CHAMPION SIRE STUD! BLACK & SILVER!

Sunshine Schnauzers has been breeding Miniature Schnauzers and no other breed or size for oveer well past 30 years! During those years we have been constantly improving our lines to achieve the best Health, Temperament and the standards according to the AKC description. I do not have a kennel here, my kids and babies (when we have them) live in the house and are my pets first. Sunshine has never bred more than 4 litters in a year as we do not keep breeding our females year after year until sickness or death. You can go to the "Available Pups" page page to find out when we will breed our next litter, it will be a lot of champions in the pedigrees too. Our pups always have the mother and father with nice champion pedigrees not only one side but both parents have nice champion pedigrees and others in the pedigree that are excellent but might have not been shown. Usually they will be bred a few times and then they get to be placed in a wonderful home and be the princess and receive all the loving. In order for me to breed my females they must be in great health and approved by my vet and be happy and healthy! They deserve better than to be constantly bred trying to profit at the cost of their health and happiness! Our puppies will always have great champion pedigrees to try and ensure their wonderful health and a long life for their new best friends and families! We only breed the colors of Black, Salt & Pepper and Black and Silver. We have had 2 surprise litters from mother nature where we had parti and chocolate and whites, it's what nature does. I will try and have at least 4 litters in 2013 since I have found some great females in early 2012 to fit our program. Sunshine only had 2 litters in 2012. I have selected some new females with nice healthy champion lines who will help us bring you more pups in 2016 and on as not to disappoint so many wonderful Schnauzer Lovers because we don't have pups available. Since I have help now, we will do our best to bring you more wonderful Schnauzer babies! Barbie, Alex, Snow, and Zenyatta have all been retired in 2014 and 2015. My love for the Miniature Schnauzer will ensure you a wonderful long term companion as I do not adopt out my babies for breeding or showing. They are extremely quality AKC pets! I am retired so my entire life 24/7 is dedicated to my babies and adults! Your love of the breed and time visiting all of us here at Sunshine is so appreciated. Sunshine Schnauzers always reserves the right to adopt pups or not adopt pups to any individuals as they feel best for the puppy. NOTICE: WE DO NOT SELL PAID ADVERTISING, IF I ADVERTISE SOMEONE'S BUSINESS ON HERE IT IS BECAUSE I USE THEM AND I FEEL THEY ARE THE BEST AND FAIR! NOBODY PAYS TO ADVERTISE ON THIS SITE! THEY EARN IT!. AT TIMES WE HAVE AN ADULT THAT WE WILL RE-HOME, INTERESTED WATCH THE ADULT2ADOPT PAGE.

2015 has started out to be a great year. And I have planned out my breedings this year. Always look at our "Available/Future Puppies" page for so much information and information on past litters. At Sunshine Schnauzers I am keeping back my own females as I know their great pedigrees and wonderful health history. As of now this is the plan for 2016, but things could change. I have 4 wonderful studs and this is why I can hold my own girls back to continue my wonderful breeding program of health and happiness. Come along with us during the coming 2016 year and if your thinking of a new baby, you should definitely give Sunshine a big look! I have the pups and your best interest at heart always! Please remember to read our "Available/Future Puppies" page from the home page to get all the information and past litter info. So many have blessed me over the years and even though I don't get to talk or communicate with them has much as I would like, I never forget the great homes and love they give to my babies. I am eternally grateful and take nothing for granted! Also, reading the "Available/Future Puppies page will give you a idea of what adoption fees usually are. Most the time my black and silvers are higher fees, then blacks and then salt/peppers are usually the least fees. However females are usually more in each color than the male, due to usually less females and more demand. Unfortunately, when I don't have any babies available, I don't have a list of breeders I recommend. However, at times I will work with a breeder to improve their lines or mine. If you want to ask me for another breeder to possibly find a new baby, please e-mail. If someone is using my name because they have one of my pups that are now adults, beware and check with me first!

2016-2017 UPDATE

First let me say I am planing a retiring from breeding in the near future.z. It has been my pleasure over the last 40 years building the best breeding program producing the most healthy, beautiful babies for you my sunshine family. Due to a much harder time finding qualified families for my babies and the amount of work and financial toll it takes on me , not to mention my health issues. I want to live my life out with my kids I keep as my pets get homes for all my kids 2-4 years old and I might have litters in Jan., Feb., and March of 2017 then that would be it. Building this sunshine family has been a dream come true and making my program produce the highest quality of new family members to join yours wit.h great health and many many healthy years. If you are interested in a pup in the next few months please keep watching my web site here for updates. You can also check out my Adults kids for adoption at my Adults2Adopt page where all their info and adoption fees are posted. If you remeain a Sunshine Family that is looking for a new family member please get in touch with me as I know where the good babies are located. I won't name names, but I actually know for sure and have proof of 2 different breeders who got age appropriate females from Craigslist, yes Craigslist one who got a girl for $50 bred them to a male with champions lines back in his pedigree and sold them as champion line babies.That will never happen here as every mother and father have their own champion pedigreee. I know over 20 possible family members of Sunshine were disappointed hoping for a new Christmas baby and for that I am so sorry. I tried and I can.usually predict the color and size but there is no way I can preduct the number of pups from a mother. For those of you who were so upset I retired Rou and didn't get one of her babies like Louie, Edwin, Shadow and Bandit all can be seen on my home page, I will be breeding Rou's daughtger QTee who looks just like her and her dad is my AKC Champion Tailor. She will only have phantom black and silver babies when bred to my flashy Fritz who is also black and silver. I will also soon be breeding my girl Zhenya who is salt & pepper from her mom Alex, also salt & pepper (VERY Happily retired to Bob and Susan. So I am expecting babies just like the ones I named. Zhenya will probably be bred to Fritz or Hansel, with Fritz or Champion Tailor she would most likely have b/s and s/p babies with Hansel she would probably have blacks, black & silver and also salt & pepper. MY assistant Casey and I wish everyone a verfy happy holidays. If your still looking for a baby let me know I can help you! Thanks so much!

To The New Year 2017: Welcome!!

2016 was a pretty slow year for producing babies as we only adopted out 7 babies the entire year. (I know all other breeders have cheered this count) I can tell you that 2017 is being planned to introduce some new moms in "Angel, Zhenya and QT." all black & silver girls ( Not so cheered by other breeders, lol) My girls 2-4 years old that will also be bred is Twinkle and a young girl who is black named Onyx could possibly be bred the end of the year (she has a bomb pedigree) you should watch for Onyx as she should produce my only blacks probably and they will be AKC Champion Sired. One big disappointment for some of my family members here at Sunshine or those who wanted to join out family is the fact that there are always few females. Trust me there is nothing I can do to change that, nature does what it will, so sorry to all those who waited for a female, we should do better this year having more litters. Females are usually a premium with any breeder, why I have no idea if I stopped breeding today I would definitely keep boys and Star of course! They are so loyal, worry more about you then themselves and are so less needy than the females and less demanding, if you haven't had a male and are looking to add to your family, they are so loving and easy to train and no they are not going to pee in your house because your going to train them just like you would a female and they will be neutered at 7 months, which usually helps but don't let that be the only thing you rely on to keep them from raising their leg in your house, train them or course, don't wait until 7 months and hope. If you have had a male you already know the loving and protection they have for you and the loyalty is unmatched. At this point I plan on breeding for a couple more years if my health holds up, I don't let the stroke I had in 7/16 define me and slow down my love for my kids and babies. I also have a very loyal assistant in Casey, a University student who picks up everything like a sponge that I teach him and he is very smart and loves the kids and babies. Should you ever hear from him know that he is well informed why he is calling and knowledgable of the situation. He is a great young man and my best assistant since I had Melody in 2013-14 which many of you know and met and I always wish her the best, only good thing to say about Melody! Please use the youtube.com channels to fiind any questions you have about your baby or adult, there are so many great pet lovers an vets on videos who share their great knowledge or as always I'm always here for anyone! Please pray for the Sunshine family to have a year of healthy kids and babies and know that you will always be happy with a Sunshine Kid!!! Our love goes out to all and we sincerely wish all the best in the new coming year!!! Your friend and breeder,

Jim Peterson w/Casey asst.!
