History of the Miniature Schnauzer
It was in the nineteenth century when some farmers in Germany were experimenting with dog breeding to find a breed that would suffice the need for a small watchdog without much aggression. The result was the Miniature Schnauzer, which was obtained from the cross breeding of the Standard Schnauzer with the breeds like Affenpinscher and Poodle.
