Originated in Germany, the Schnauzers are generally are loving, happy, playful and protective.
Like Poodles, the Schnauzers come in three sizes: Miniature, Standard and Giant. They are thick-boned and sturdy. The miniature schnauzer stands about 12 to 14 inches tall and weighs between 13 and 15 pounds. The standard schnauzer stands between 17.5 and 19.5 inches tall and weighs between 35 and 45 pounds, while the giant schnauzer stands 23.5 to 27.5 inches tall and weighs anywhere between 65 and 90 pounds. Schnauzers have distinctive beards and long, feathery eyebrows. They are, in general, either a salt and pepper colour, black, or white, but they can be brown as well. The Schnauzers have a double coat; the top coat is wiry, while the undercoat is soft.
Although the Schnauzers are considered part of the terrier group, they do not have the typical terrier temperament. They get along well with children – ideal for families with children! Intelligent and courageous, the Schnauzers shed a little and have a little “doggy” odour – they make a great furry companion for those who suffer from asthma.
