History of this Dog Breed?
The Miniature Schnauzer were very handy back in the day, originating from Germany in the late 19th Century. They are descendants of the Affenpinscher and the standard schnauzer. In 1933 the miniature schnauzer was recognised as a separate breed from the standard schnauzer by the AKC. At one time the miniature schnauzer was the third most popular breed in America, and remains a favourite.
