The Giant Schnauzer breed is a German breed.
Essentially a larger, stronger version of the Standard Schnauzer, Giant Schnauzers have large, square-built frames covered in dense, wiry coats. Their long heads have distinctive bushy moustaches, beards and eyebrows, not to mention deeply set eyes, powerful muzzles and V-shaped ears that point up and forward. Their tails, sometimes docked, are carried high. They come in solid black and salt & pepper. Overall, Giant Schnauzers have a sturdy, commanding and lively look.
A healthy Giant Schnauzer can live as long as 15 years.
