Miniature Schnauzer Breed Information:
The Miniature Schnauzer originated in Germany in the late 1800s. They were originally bred for guarding herds and farms, and for keeping rats and vermin out of the barns. In the Mini Schnauzer's earliest stages, several small breeds were crossed to bring down the size of the well-established Standard Schnauzer. The goal was to create a duplicate but in a much smaller size. Crossing with breeds such as the Affenpinscher, Poodle and Miniature Pinscher, had the side effect of introducing colors that were not considered acceptable to the ultimate goal. As breeders worked towards the stabilization of the gene pool, they stopped breeding mismarked particolors and white puppies. In 1926, The Mini Schnauzer was accepted by the American Kennel Club as part of the Terrier group. The Miniature Schnauzer is alert and spirited, yet obedient to command. They are friendly, intelligent and willing to please. The Mini Schnauzer makes an excellent watchdog. They are suspicious of strangers until the owner of the home welcomes the guest, upon which they are typically very friendly to them. Miniature Schnauzers are not aggressive by nature, as some other Terrier breeds are. They are relatively fearless, and once mature, the Miniature Schnauzer has a strongly developed territorial instinct. He is an ideal guard dog, defending vocally rather than physically. A good Mini Schnauzer will bark at anyone who may appear a threat to his home, but is not an incessant barker. They are discriminating and intelligent guard dogs that assume this duty naturally. Miniature Schnauzers are highly intelligent and generally easy to train. They are playful dogs, and if not given the outlet required for their energy they may become bored and mischievous. Mini Schnauzers are highly prey driven and may attack other small animals such as birds and rodents.
