Breed Notes

The Miniature Schnauzer is an alert, spirited, friendly dog who is as much at home in a city apartment as he is in the country.

The Schnauzer is of German origin, said to be recognizable in pictures of the 15th century and is derived from the Standard Schnauzer and is said to have come from mixing of Affenpinschers and Poodles with small Standard Schnauzers. The breed was exhibited as a distinct breed as early as 1899.

The Miniature Schnauzer was originally bred to be a small farm dog, able to go to ground for all kinds of vermin.
