The miniature and the giant are both derived from the standard variety of Schnauzer. The oldest sibling, either black or salt and pepper in color, is good natured and placid. Standard Schnauzers are vivacious dogs that are devoted to their owners and affectionate to children. Their senses are highly developed and they are very vigilant, although they do not bark much.
Commensurate with the dog’s power, with a clearly defined stop accentuated by the eyebrows.
Solid, firm, short back, short, solid, high loins. Short distance from the last rib to the hip, producing a compact look.
Self-colored black with black undercoat, salt and pepper.
Folded and hanging, set high, V shaped, carried symmetrically and pointing forward towards the temples.
Natural, a saber or sickle is sought after.
Wiry and dense.
Schnauzers are robust, somewhat squat, medium-sized dogs native to southern Germany, where they were used as stable dogs because they were especially comfortable around horses. They would kill rodents with a single bite, earning themselves a reputation as ratters. When the Pinscher and Schnauzer breed club was established in 1895, they were still known as wirehaired Pinschers.
Their intelligence, suitability to training and stamina, together with their hardiness and resistance to disease make Standard Schnauzers the ideal family, companion and guard dog, with everything a good working dog is expected to have.
