The Miniature Schnauzer

The Miniature Schnauzer is a wonderfully friendly and lively companion: intelligent, curious, alert, spirited and courageous. He is playful and affectionate, learns quickly, and does not shed (which makes him suitable for most people allergic to dogs). The size is handy (between 12 and 14 inches over the shoulders), and he’s a joy to bring everywhere. There are three officially approved colors: salt/pepper (grey), black/silver (black with white feet and beard), and solid black. Any other colors are a result of mixed breeding!

A Miniature Schnauzer should never be overaggressive, timid, shy or vicious. He is successfully used in obedience, agility, and earthdog trials. He will easily adapt to your lifestyle: if you live in the city where space and room for exercise is limited he will adjust, if you live in the country or like to go for long walks he is an excellent companion and will have no problems keeping up with you.

The Miniature Schnauzer needs to be kept as part of the family. He should not be left alone for long hours on a regular basis. He wants to live as part the family and come along whenever something happens.
