Miniature Schnauzers are living proof that good things really do come in small packages. Being a terrier breed, they like to rule the roost and be the centre of attention. They are full of loveable attitude and get absolute joy from running and playing outside with their favourite humans. These loveable larrikans enjoy getting up to mischief and have the intelligence to open cupboard doors to find food, favourite toys, or a tasty pair of new shoes.
As a miniature, this breed is small, sturdy and squarely built. The distinctive Schnauzer beard and wiry coat can vary betyween black, black and sliver, salt and pepper, and occasionally, white. Adult Miniature Schnauzers grow to roughly 30 cm and typically weigh between 5 and 9 kg.
