Standard Schnauzer Dog Breed

Standard Schnauzers

Of the three Schnauzers, Miniature, Standard, and Giant, all of which are bred and registered as distinct breeds, the Standard is the prototype. He is a German breed of great antiquity.

As far as can be determined, the Schnauzer originated in the crossing of German Poodle and gray wolf spitz upon wirehaired Pinscher stock.

His nature combines a high-spirited temperament with unusual intelligence and reliability. He occupies the midway position between the toys and the large breeds.

He is known for his arched eyebrows, bristly mustache, and great whiskers. A robust, great house dog, that is devoted to his owner.

Height: at the shoulder blades, 18 1/2-19 1/2 inches for males; females, 17 1/2-18 1/2 inches.
