$700. 00 is steep! Call around. There are discount spay and neuter clinics sponsored by cities or Counties. Try SPCA and Shelters.
If you have Emancipet or Vet schools around where you live, you can get good services that are affordable.

Happy Easter to you too!
If that is the case, then there is no need to consider spaying her so young. You might want to look at it when she gets a little older to avoid the risk of Pyometra, which affects middle aged unspayed females.
I's probably wait until she is fully grown - at least 2 years old - before looking again at spaying.

That's what scares me the most. there are NO guarantees. The population here is under 3000.
She will never leave my sight.
Happy Easter to all

Hi William, Firstly, $700 sounds like a great deal of money to have a Mini Schnauzer spayed.
If you do decide to have Rose spayed, I would get a second quote from a recommended vet.
As she is your only dog, you don't have to have her spayed. She will come on heat every 6-9 months and during this time, you have to be very careful when she is out -she will have to be in your yard on on a leash as she will be a magnet for all the males out there.
If you do have her spayed, go to a reputable vet - and it shouldn't cost $700.
The vast majority of the time, spaying is a successful procedure, very occasionally complications can occur, as with any internal surgery.
Good luck.
