Origins of the breed
The standard Schnauzer has been a feature in German history from at least the 14th century. It is thought that their miniature counterparts were developed by crossing the original with Affenpinschers. Others believe that poodles and other black spitz types were involved in the development of this dog. The first Miniature Schnauzer was registered in Germany in 1898 and has since made a name for themselves as loving companion dogs.
