We are thrilled to introduce to you the newest mini schnauzer at Russell Homestead - Cooper! We decided in the end of 2015 that the time has come for us to purchase a third mini schnauzer. We chose to add a male to our crew for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons we wanted a male was to give our new puppy families the privilege of being able to meet dad as well as mom. His genetics and disposition are just as important to the new puppy as mom's. We also found that with our girls being drastically different in weight, it was difficult to find a stud that was suitable for both. And, of course, schnauzers are like potato chips - it is hard to just have one or two!
Cooper joined us in March of 2016 and immediately fit right in. Both Jolly and Cocoa readily accepted him into the pack. He did well with our children right from the start. We enrolled him in puppy kindergarten and basic obedience through the Berks County Dog Training Club. He excelled in both courses and received lots of great socialization through the experience.
Cooper has been a delightful addition to our family. Below are some of my favorite pictures of him. Read more about him and see more photos on his page. He visited the vet in November of 2016, and he is in great health. We are planning to use him to sire our 2017 litters here at Russell Homestead. (In fact, he has proven himself already. Read about it on my next blog!)
