Why a paid waiting list?


We are overwhelmed by the love our Mini Schnauzer have drawn from friends and followers and humbled by the number of inquiries we receive between litters. Many people we talk with are seeking a puppy immediately; others are just casually looking at the prospect of adding a new schnauzer to their family. We've needed a way to organize our contact list to communicate with those waiting for our puppies efficiently.


By joining our paid Waiting List, you are saying that you're reasonably sure that you want to adopt a puppy from Cortes Mini Schnauzer, that you're willing to wait (possibly up to 6-12 months. Depending on your preferences), and that we should contact you personally with breeding updates, litter announcements, and deposit info.


If you're not at that point yet, you're still welcome here! We have lots of resources to share on our website and are happy to answer any questions. If you're local, please consider a visit to meet our dogs and see how they're raised, and to help us socialize our puppies when we have a litter! We'd love for you to consider adding a Schnauzer baby to your family when the time is right for you!


We know that not everyone has the money to pay outright for a high-quality puppy. That's why we have We offer payment plans.
