Known for their incredibly sweet beards and old man looks, Schnauzers are definitely the fun police of dogdom.
Whether it’s barking at kids, passing cyclists or skateboarders, the Schnauzer crew will always warn you of any suspicious activity — even if it’s not so suspicious.
At first glance, a schnauzer’s body type might set you up to think he’s a little stodgy. Unlike the gentler curves some canines sport, a schnauzer’s rectangular head and sharp angles may inspire us to assign him a rigid persona.
A schnauzer personality—whether he’s a giant, standard, or miniature breed—defies categorization. They may have a regal snout, but they’re anything but snooty.
Another great thing about schnauzers: you can pick from three sizes and colors to suit your lifestyle. A miniature can be as small as ten pounds, while a giant can get close to a hundred, and the standard falls in between.
All of them, though, share that schnauzer personality. A quick look from large to small reveals the rambunctiousness and range of schnauzer temperament.
