Additional information (Wiki): A schnauzer (plural schnauzers) is a German dog type that originated in Germany in the 1400s and 1500s. The term comes from "Schnauze," the German word for snout, because of the dog's distinctly furry muzzle. The type consists of three breeds: the giant, standard and miniature schnauzer. The original schnauzer was of the same size as the modern standard schnauzer breed, and was bred as a rat catcher, yard dog and guard dog. The miniature schnauzer is the result of crossing the original schnauzer. Schnauzers do not shed because they have a "hair shaft" like humans have which is why they make good house pets, and also they are hypoallergenic so if your child is allergic to hair it is a good dog to have.

Miniature schnauzers are around one foot (30 cm) tall at the shoulder and weigh between 5 and 13 pounds (five to seven kg). They have high energy levels, are very intelligent and are often Salt and peper, or black, they can be silver, white, or even partys(Which is all the colors together.)They can live outside but love to spend time with their owners. They make excellent pets as they are loyal companions and are rarely aggressive toward strangers, although they are quick to sound the alarm at a perceived threat.

Standard schnauzers are around 1 1/2 feet (46 cm) tall at the shoulder and weigh 26 to 37 pounds (12 to 17 kg). They are in the group of working dogs. Standard schnauzers have been used to catch rats and as guard dogs. They have also carried messages in times of war, helped the Red Cross and been police dogs.
