The Giant Schnauzer has a coat that is hard, harsh, and wiry, and the coloring of the Giant Schnauzer can be black or salt & pepper. This is a distinctive looking breed with a beard, a sturdy build, and a wise expression. The weight of the Giant Schnauzer is around 65-80 pounds for females, and 80-95 pounds for males. The height of these dogs is around 23-26 inches for females, and 25-28 inches for males.

The Giant Schnauzer is intelligent, easily trained, reliable, versatile, bold, and good-natured. He is an excellent guard dog, deeply loyal to his family, and especially good with young children and other pets within his family — He may, however, show aggression toward strange children or animals.

Today, the Giant Schnauzer is not only a good family companion and protector but he is also seen working as a Police Dog, Sniffer Dog, in Search and Rescue and as a Therapy Dog. The Giant also enjoys various dog sports and activities, such as obedience, agility, and herding.

The Giant Schnauzer, also known as the Münchener Dog and the Riesenschnauser, is believed to have originated near Munich, Germany. Originally used as a cattle driver, and later as a guardian and police dog, the breed also served with valour during two world wars.
If you are considering a Giant Schnauzer puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. For the Giant Schnauzer this should include being x-rayed clear of Hip Dysplasia. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases
