They are a particular breed of dog that are hundreds of years old and have been extremely popular all these centuries right since the 15th Century, when their existence was traced in Germany. The name ‘Schnauzer’ has been derived from the German word, ‘schnauze’, which means snout, a term, which goes perfectly for this breed as these dogs contain distinctive snouts with very long hair. There are 5 different varieties of Schnauzers – Standard, Miniature, Giant, toy and teacup schnauzer. Of all these, we will discuss about the last 2 varieties in this article.
