our Schnauzers . . .
I started breeding Miniature
Schnauzers a few years ago, looking for a smaller dog for my daughter
to play with, and one that offered less trouble for children with
Miniature Schnauzers are
a small dog breed that originated in Germany in the late 1900's, as
a cross between the Standard Schnauzer and one or more of the smaller
breeds like the Miniature Pinscher and Poodle. It's one of the more
popular dog breeds, in the top 10 in Canada, loved for its wonderful
temperament. The Official Standard (AKC) of the Miniature Schnauzer
describes the Schnauzer temperament as "Alert and spirited, yet
obedient to command. Friendly, intelligent and willing to please."
They are natural watchdogs, warning owners of people approaching,
then friendly when homeowners approach the guest. They are intelligent
and train easily, and are very good with children.
