My name is Cindy Faubert Hayes and I am a responsible breeder of quality, healthy and beautiful AKC registered Miniature Schnauzers. I reside with my family and dogs on 10 country acres in the small town of Hastings, Michigan. I am very blessed to have what I feel is the best job in the world. I get to stay home with my children, both the human ones and the four-legged ones. We are a Christian family and hold fast to values of honesty and integrity. These qualities are what I have striven to build my breeding program upon. I cherish the many relationships that I've been able to build as a result of raising puppies. I tend to stay in contact with many of my puppy families and I love to receive updates and pictures. I also make myself available for breeder support for the families that take my puppies home. As a breeder of Miniature Schnauzers, my goal is to produce the best quality, healthiest and most well-adjusted puppies possible. I am committed to giving all of my puppies the very best start in life. We have a relatively small breeding program and focus on quality vs. quantity. All of our dogs live in our home with us and are part of our family. My expectant mommas have a cozy area set up in my bedroom where they can deliver their puppies and I can keep a close eye on them. The puppies stay there for their first 4 weeks of life and then they are moved to the puppy nursery area located in our front entry room which is always a hub of activity. The puppies have a large 5'x 5' area to sleep, eat and of course play play play!! This is also where they begin to learn the basics of potty training. Each puppy is held and loved daily and I keep a close record of their growth progression to make sure that every puppy is getting all that he/she needs. In their first 8 weeks of life spent with me, they have positive interaction with not only their momma and littermates but also me, my children, my other adult dogs and even our cats. My goal is to make sure all of my puppies are well-rounded, happy and healthy and go to wonderful homes that will love them forever!
