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.

Is Seattle a good place for pet ownership?

In the study, Wallethub graded Seattle as the 17th most pet-friendly city. The city performed well for pet health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendliness, ranking 18th and 11th respectively.
