Miniature Schnauzer Characteristics
Miniature Schnauzers are all-around loveable dogs and are frequently in the top 20 most popular breeds in America and parts of Europe. Mini Schnauzers are loyal and loving companions who are easily trained and mix well with other dogs and family members. Famous for their scruffy beards, the Miniature Schnauzer is a hit everywhere he goes.
The smallest and most popular of the Schnauzers, the Miniature Schnauzer originated in the late 1800s as a small farm dog in Germany. All the Schnauzers get their name from one individual dog named "Schnauzer" who lived around 1879—an appropriate name since Schnauzer means "small beard."
Miniature Schnauzers are the smallest of the Schnauzer Breed. They typically stand around 13-14 inches at the shoulder and come in brown, black, and other colored coats. Don't let his stature fool you, though. Miniature Schnauzers are not afraid of picking fights with larger dogs, and this can sometimes get them into trouble. While he may think he is larger than he is sometimes, the Miniature Schnauzer's size makes him a great city dog, and only requires a moderate amount of exercise.
Mini Schnauzers make excellent watchdogs, and will likely bark at anyone they don't know or could be perceived as a threat. Their intelligence and stature allow them to excel in obedience training and agility competitions. These dogs are also great at performing tricks, standing on their sturdy rear legs, and walking upright for short periods is not unheard of. A stout and smart dog, the Miniature Schnauzer is a lively, smart, affectionate, and relatively low-shedding dog. He makes a fine addition to an active family.
How dog-friendly is New Hampshire?
Different studies rank New Hampshire quite differently. Depending on what part of the state you live in, you may have different levels of access to pet services, accommodations, etc.
In a study by Pawsafe, New Hampshire ranked incredibly well as the 5th most pet-friendly state. They scored New Hampshire particularly well for their animal welfare laws, like harsh penalties for abuse and neglect, and high pet care standards.
Another study by the animal safety site Safewise didn’t give such shining reviews, though. In their study, New Hampshire ranks as the 40th most pet-friendly state.
Though the two studies produced wildly different results, if we combine the two scores New Hampshire ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states. Not the best, but not the worst!
