Schnauzers are also known for their non-shedding coat. Some even believe that a schnauzer is hypo allergenic. That is a decision for individual people, but not shedding is a benefit no matter how you look at it!
The smaller size makes them an excellent choice for the entire family. They are great lap dogs, yet will get up and play with the kids. Highly intelligent, you will find training easy as well as fun! Your schnauzer will be welcome at relative’s homes in no time!
I will be undergoing major surgery December 1st. I will be in a care facility for 2 weeks after. I have family that will be staying in my home and caring for the babies. For families that know me- I LOVE to share pictures of the babies as they develop and you prepare to bring them home. My family will try to take pictures- but if they do, they will be cell phone pics or videos.
All paperwork will be completed before my surgery, and care packages will also be prepared in advance.
The surgeon said we will not know until about Dec 16 how coherent I will be, or what I will be able to do directly after returning home. I am sure I can answer questions on the phone, just be patient with me please.
My family will make the arrangements with you on my behalf if I am not able. I assure you, the pups will still have excellent care and all medications and vaccinations given. Thank you for your understanding.
Known for his distinguished, handsome appearance, the Miniature Schnauzer is characterized by its whiskers and double coat, which has a hard, wiry outer coat and close, soft undercoat. Coat colors can be salt and pepper, black and silver and solid black. Despite his small stature, the Miniature Schnauzer can give an alarm just as well as a larger dog. That, combined with his naturally protective nature, makes him an excellent watchdog. He is also the most popular of the three Schnauzer breeds, which include the Giant and the Standard. Derived from the Standard Schnauzer from Germany, the Miniature was exhibited as a distinct breed as early as 1899. He was originally bred to be a small farm dog, able to go to ground for all kinds of vermin, and is recognizable in German paintings as far back as the 15th century
