Welcome To MapleCreek Home of AKC Champion Mini Schnauzers and Havanese
Welcome to our MapleCreek web page .Please enjoy your visit and the information you can find here about both our Mini Schnauzer and Havanese dogs. Contact information is available on my contact page.
I owned pet Schnauzers for 15 years before I got involved with Miniature Schnauzer Rescue in 1995, a non-profit organization for the placement of Mini's that can no longer be kept by their owners. I worked with MSR fostering and placing many rescued minis for over 11 plus years before starting another rescue group called MapleCreek Miniature Schnauzer Rescue in 2006. Theone Hutchman and I are working rescue together. This has been extremely rewarding. In 1995 I was fortunate to obtain two females from a breeder who could no longer keep her dogs and allowed ME to breed them and show their puppies if they ended up to be show quality pups. That is when I started MapleCreek Miniature Schnauzers. Since then I obtained our foundation bitch "B.J.", a "Rep" daughter.
WE have been breeding and improving our lines ever since, showing those Mini's that have promise. Champion MapleCreek's Fire Storm, aka "Junior," became our first Champion in January of 2001. Champion MapleCreek's Magic Equation, aka "Einstein," became our second Champion in July 2005. Champion MapleCreek's Forever Amber, aka "Amber," received her Championship in June 2006. CH MapleCreek's Magic Moment received his Championship in June 2008. I am extremely proud of all four beautiful and handsome dogs.
Our priority in our breeding program has always been and will always be Health first, Personality second, Conformation third and other appointments last. We absolutely adore our Mini's. Our dogs and puppies are raised in our home and given a lot of love and hands-on attention. We expose them to as many types of situations as we can so they are very well socialized before they leave us. This is important for both the pups we sell as pets and also for the pups we keep to show.
All of our dogs are very solid and agile. The puppies we sell as pets have natural ears unless otherwise specified and are sold on a spay/neuter contract and are not to be bred.
In 2005 I purchased my first Havanese. Darcy, Ch Flaming Geysers Dulcinea, our second Havanese received her Championship in 2007, SHE passed all of her health requirements and produced several wonderful litters before she was retired. Since Darcy I have had 4 more champions: Ch MapleCreek's Come Home Bill Bailey, CH MapleCreek's Days of Wine and Roses, CH MapleCreek's Christmas Bells, CH Abode's Chase What Matters at MapleCreek and are working on more. I am very proud of all my Havanese, they are such sound, fun dogs.
