Miniature Schnauzer

From Dog

The Miniature Schnauzer breed originated in Germany.

Miniature Schnauzers have an overall alert, robust stance—much like their cousins, Standard Schnauzers. They have small, square frames with long heads bearing bushy moustaches, beards and eyebrows. They have oval-shaped eyes, strong muzzles and V-shaped ears that bend forward. Their tails, sometimes docked, are carried high. They come in solid black, salt & pepper, silver & black and sometimes white.

A healthy Miniature Schnauzer can live as long as 15 years.
