Overview
The Miniature Schnauzer is a cross between the Standard Schnauzer, the Affenpinscher, and it is said the Poodle is a possibility. They were bred to retain the same look and characteristics of the Standard Schnauzer, but being of a more manageable size. This breed originated in Germany, named after the German word for muzzle, "schnauze." The Miniature Schnauzer does very well in killing rats which is what he was commonly used for, and does well in hunting, tracking, competitive obedience, and performing tricks which he is known for.
Character
The Miniature Schnauzer is generally well mannered and very obedient making him a great student. A very perky breed, they do not do well in kennel life and should always be kept as a companion. This breed loves to be around his owner and does best in a family environment. The Miniature Schnauzer makes a wonderful alarm dog, barking at the sight or sound of something odd or treading onto his territory. This breed is very active, but does not require as much exercise as the Standard variety.

The Miniature Schnauzer can have troubles with other dogs, however if properly trained and socialized; this breed can do all right. This breed should be supervised around small children, and does best with older children and more respectable children. The Schnauzer can be combative with other dogs, however if raised with them this breed can do well. They are not recommended for a home with smaller animals such as the cat as they have the tendency to chase them.

Activity

Ownership

Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Can a mini schnauzer be white

1 Comment

Miniature Schnauzer's have three colors that are accepted by the AKC, UKC AND CKC - salt-and-pepper, black-and-silver and solid black. White used to be a recessive gene in which a pup could come out white, but with great breeders, it has nearly been eradicated from today's gene pool of well bred dogs. So to answer your question, no, they can not be. If you are looking for a white, small bred dog, I would suggest the West Highland White Terrier; they are a spunky little breed of dog that is full of personality, just like the Mini Schnauzer.

Mini Schnauzers are some of the best dogs, the only downside is that some of them have a tendency to bark like they're getting paid each time.

why will my mini-schnauzer not jump up in his bed he has been jumping but now he will not. He has had a allergy problem all of his life. He gets a shot for it about 2 times a year

what kind of mixed breeds are there with schnauzers?

Schnauzers are bred to Yorkies for "Schnorkies" or to Poodles for "Schnoodles". Those are probably the 2 most popular hybrids, however, lately alot of breeders have been crossing Schnauzers with Merle Poms or Merle Aussie's to create the merle schnauzers.
