Schnauzer Dog Breed Information

The Miniature Schnauzer and Giant Schnauzer resemble their cousin, the Standard Schnauzer. The oldest of the three schnauzer breeds (and the prototype for the Giant and Miniature versions), the Standard Schnauzer originated in Germany. He guarded the family and livestock, rid the farmyard of vermin, and protected his owners as they traveled to market.

The breeds name comes from the beard and moustache on his muzzle ("schnauze" in German).
