Miniature Schnauzer

The spirited Miniature Schnauzer descended from the Standard Schnauzer and was bred to hunt vermin on farms. He has a stocky, muscular body with a distinct whiskered muzzle and bushy eyebrows. Alert and intelligent, he is an excellent watchdog, and his friendliness and eager-to-please personality make him an affectionate companion. The Miniature Schnauzer’s dense, nonshedding coat requires regular grooming.
