Schnauzer (Miniature)

Breed History / Description

The original Schnauzer has been known in Germany from at least the 14th Century. It is thought that the miniaturisation was brought about by the infusion of Affenpinscher blood. The miniature variety was first officially recorded in 1888. Despite the reduction of size, there is no reduction in spirit – and they are hugely popular as companion dogs. The Miniature Schnauzer is part of the Utility group 


Well balanced, smart, stylish and adaptable. 


Alert, reliable and intelligent. Primarily a companion dog.
