About Miniature Schnauzers
Smart. Easy to train. They love to please.
Non-shedding makes them great pets for people who have allergies to pets.
They are stocky, robust little dogs standing 12 to 14 inches, weighting 11 to 18 lbs. The Schnauzer is a pet who has it all in one small package; intelligence, affection, outgoing personality twice as big as he/she is, portable size and humor. Throw in the mustache and beard and he/she will make you laugh on a daily basis. With a miniature Schnauzer in the house, your will never be alone, you will be accompanied to any room in the house or outdoors. Where ever you go he/she will be with you. They love to go with you where ever you may go. A car ride is a joy.
They are adaptable pets, small enough to adapt to apartment life but tireless enough to make the rounds of farmland. Created to be farm dogs and ratters, they are tough, muscular, and fearless without being aggressive. The cute mustache gives them their signature look, but it isn't a disguise! The mustache protects his/her face from the small vermin he/she was bred to hunt. They get along well with other animals and kids. Being sturdy little guys or gals they enjoy vigorous play or will snuggle up on your lap. They are ok with either.
Miniature Schnauzers have exceptional hearing. They have been partnered with German Shepherds to protect home and sheep as they hear sounds and alert the Shepherd before the Shepherd hears the intruder. Because of the exceptional hearing they are alert and make great watchdogs.
