Miniature SchnauzerThe charming and incredibly friendly Miniature Schnauzer is considered by many to be one of the most lovable dogs to be around. Due to their pleasant nature and lovability, this likeable dog makes for a great pet within any form of household. Incredibly sweet and intelligent, your Miniature Schnauzer will remain utterly loyal and dependable to his master, making for a fantastic companion.

The Miniature Schnauzer is almost instantly recognizable in appearance due to its small stature and almost ‘teddy bear’ look. It is often believed that this breed came as a result of a cross breed between the standard Schnauzer and the Affenpinscher. There is some belief that the Miniature Schnauzer may also possess some of the aesthetic features similar to that of the poodle. As ‘schnauze’ is German for muzzle, there is also the belief that this breed is of German decadency.

There is a reason why this miniature dog is so well loved which is apparent from a small glance of its face. Sporting a bushy beard, mustache and prominent eyebrows, the incredibly cute Miniature Schnauzer is not often mistaken for any other miniature breed of dog. Should your minute friend be incredibly well groomed, your lovable companion may even boast an accentuated beard and mustache to highlight his features. A Miniature Schnauzer will boast a long and silky coat which may sport a slight curl to it, especially when the cost is longer than usual. In regards to color, most miniatures sport ‘salt and pepper’ colored coats, but Miniature Schnauzers can also possess all white, all black or even a black coat that is accentuated with a lighter undercoat.

This lovable breed is a favored choice within many households as a direct result of its cute appearance and friendly temperament. Schnauzers are incredibly happy and perky breeds which make for a fantastic playmate for children. Incredibly obedient, you will thrive on helping him learn new tricks and disciplines, whilst his high level of energy will make him the perfect pet for families with smaller children. The Miniature Schnauzer possesses characteristics that are similar to that of a child, meaning he will be a great companion for your children. Alert, happy, a lover of dog toys and always willing to play a game, your Schnauzer is guaranteed to make a fantastic bond with all family members.

In regards to temperament towards other dogs, the Miniature Schnauzer can often be quite aggressive when faced with dogs of other breeds – in particular, larger dogs. The Schnauzer is very brave and almost fearless, but his desire to be a larger dog can often provide a huge challenge in regards to his behavior with other dogs. In order to eliminate potential fights with other breeds, you, as the master, will need to fully establish your position in order to stop any aggressive tendencies. By introducing your Miniature Schnauzer to other dogs as a puppy, this can help stop these negative characteristics from developing and help him be more sociable and welcoming to other dogs. Being a smaller dog, a Miniature Schnauzer will be a generally healthy dog, so long as he is exercised regularly and is provided with a healthy and balanced diet of suitable dog food and dog dental treats. At a healthy state, a Miniature Schnauzer will be around 14 inches tall and will weight between 10 to 15 pounds. If cared for correctly and should your Schnauzer not contract any illnesses, he can potentially live to be 15 years old.

Whether you have children or are of a considerable age, the Miniature Schnauzer will slot perfectly into your household. Easy to train and extremely lovable, your Schnauzer will act as a great guard dog, as well as an excellent companion. Do not let his small stature deceive you – this is one small yet mighty dog!
