Schnauzer - Standard Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Mittelschnauzer

Breed Size: Medium Height Female: 18 to 20 inches (46-51 cm)

The Standard Schnauzer is a medium sized dog with a powerful, sturdy build. He has a double coat, with a soft undercoat and a wiry outer coat. The coloring of the Standard Schnauzer is either black or salt and pepper. These dogs have an intelligent, if rather far away, expression, and sport a distinctive beard.

The Standard Schnauzer is an active, strong, and robust dog who makes a good family companion and needs lots of regular exercise — at a minimum, an hour of hard play a day (swimming, running, hiking, playing fetch, etc.), a leisurely stroll once a day is not enough for this active breed.

The Standard Schnauzer is truly versatile — Today, he is still used as a guard dog and he is also seen competing in conformation, obedience, tracking, and agility. In addition, he is seen working in Search and Rescue and his calm and sensitive disposition make him ideal to work as a Therapy Dog.

The Standard Schnauzer is the oldest of the three breeds of Schnauzers, the other two being the Miniature Schnauzer and the Giant Schnauzer. The breed is native to Germany and was used as a barnyard ratter and guard dog. He was first introduced to North America in the 1920s and was originally classified as a terrier but was transferred to the Working Group in 1945.
The life expectancy of the Standard Schnauzer is around 12-14 years. There are a number of health problems to look out for, although by and large this is a relatively healthy breed. Some of the health issues that may affect the Standard Schnauzer include thyroid problems, cancer, HD, and cataracts. The parents of the Standard Schnauzer puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
