Originally bred in Germany as a small farm dog and a ratter, this is an active dog who resembles his cousins the Standard Schnauzer and the Giant Schnauzer in appearance. (The three dogs are separate and distinct breeds.) His hard, wiry coat is usually pepper-and-salt, black and silver, or solid black. An alert, spirited, friendly animal who is as much at home in a city apartment as he is in the country, this terrier is a great choice for a family pet, as well as a good watchdog. As a rule, the Miniature Schnauzer is not a fighter, although he will stand up for himself if necessary.
Height at shoulder: 12-14". Weight: 12-15 lbs. AKC group: Terriers.
