Miniature Schnauzer

Miniature Schnauzer dogs are happy, affectionate and active. Originally bred as farm dogs, they will also help rid your yard of rodents. The Miniature Schnauzer is very friendly toward people and is generally great around children. Despite their small size, the Miniature Schnauzer is very brave and may get itself into trouble with larger dogs. For this reason, owners must take special care to socialize their Miniature Schnauzer with other dogs from a very young age.
