The Miniature Schnauzer is one of the most popular breeds in the world and for good reason. This playful, loving, energetic dog will quickly win you over with their charming personality.

Originating in Germany in the mid to late 19th century, the Miniature Schnauzer was bred to hunt small rodents, a trait that is still very prominent in the breed. The Schnauzer is a hunter and no rodent gets by this dedicated animal. When the Schnauzer's hunting instinct kicks in, they tend to forgot about anything else going on around them. Another dominant trait of the Miniature Schnauzer is their exceptional hearing, which makes them a good watch dog as they will alert you when they hear something out of the ordinary.

Schnauzers are very intelligent animals and are often known for their great communication skills. They have no problem telling their owners when they want something. Anyone that has owned a Schnauzer will attest to their strong communication skills.
