History of the Miniature Schnauzer
The Miniature Schnauzer is a German breed that has records from around the late 19th century. There’s the Standard Schnauzer, but through time the breed was bred to be a smaller dog so as to more easily catch rodents; this breed was bred for hunting rodents, herding and guarding property. Schnauzers were found in the same litters as German Pinscher, but they had different coat textures. The German Pinscher Schnauzer Club said that in order to register there had to be proof of three generations of a pure coarse-haired Schnauzer. By doing this the Standard Schnauzer eventually become a distinct breed from the German Pinscher. Miniature Schnauzers came to be by breeding Standard Schnauzers with Affenpinschers and possibly Poodle. In America the Miniature Schnauzer is classified under the Terrier Group and it is said that the modern Schnauzer breed began with Dorem Display, the first Mini Schnauzer to win best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show (fun fact, almost every Miniature Schnauzer in America can trace its lineage back to Dorem Display).
Physical Characteristics of the Miniature Schnauzer
The Miniature Schnauzer is an interesting breed having a square-shaped build and a rectangular-shaped head with a bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows. They have v-shaped ears and oval eyes that are dark in color. Typically they are 12-14 inches tall and weigh from 12-20 pounds. They have a double coat; a soft undercoat and a bristly topcoat. Mini Schnauzers have a few different coats: Black Schnauzer, Salt and Pepper Mini Schnauzer, Chocolate Miniature Schnauzer, White Schnauzer and Parti Schnauzers (white coat with colored patches). We have the rare color Parti and Chocolate colors, which can be hard to find!
Hypoallergenic Hair of the Mini Schnauzer
Schnauzers have minimal shedding that is unnoticeable by many, making them a possible fit for people with animal fur related allergies. But lets be clear; there is no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog. Miniature Schnauzers may not shed as much as other breeds but some of their hair will come out and all dogs shed skin cells; just like humans.
Temperament of the Miniature Schnauzer
Miniature Schnauzers are intelligent, active and very devoted to their owners. This breed can be a great family pet and will be a great watchdog. Due to their friendly nature, they are more prone to barking than biting but it is important that you properly socialize your puppy as they grow up. Any breed that is kept isolated and isn’t introduced to new people or animals will grow to be unreceptive to new guests and more easily irritated. Since the Mini Schnauzer has a hunting instinct, you should introduce them to any other pets you have at an early age and let them get used to being around smaller animals like squirrels and cats, since they will naturally want to chase them! They are playful and energetic, so they will love playing with the kids, going on walks and runs and running around in an enclosed space. Since they are so intelligent, you should not have a hard time training them and your Mini Schnauzer puppy will love having all kinds of toys to keep them occupied! You do not want a bored Schnauzer; if they are not entertained then they will find a way to entertain themselves. Your Mini Schnauzer puppy will grow to be the guardian of your family; loyal and devoted to making you and your family happy!
