Miniature Schnauzer Breed Basics

The Miniature Schnauzer is one of the most popular family pets in the United States. Their small size and minimal shedding make them desirable among families with busy schedules. They are recognized by their rectangular shaped head with bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows. A wonderful addition to any good home. They also make excellent watchdogs.

The miniature Schnauzer is descended from the standard Schnauzer. German farmers in the 19th century were looking for a smaller schnauzer type dog, that would be more suitable for ratting. This was achieved by mixing the standard breed with the Affenpinscher and Miniature Poodle. These smaller dogs soon became popular and made their way to the United States, and were recognized by the AKC in 1926 as a new breed.

A typical owner of this breed will describe it as been neither aggressive or timid. For the most part they are intelligent and eager to please their owner. Although a very friendly breed they can be wary of strangers, and will not take to them easily unless the owner approves. As with most intelligent dogs they will crave activity - so they will need play time.

They have a double coat, with wiry exterior fur and a soft undercoat. they coat can come in the following colors:black, salt and pepper, black and silver, and pure white. They weigh between 10 and 18 pounds
