Health Issues with the breed
An average dog would live 12 years of life span, and in few cases, it may stretch up to 15 years. It won’t give you much health concerns except fat deposition related problems giving in way to pancreatitis and hyperlipidemia. Other known issues with it are gallstones, diabetes, and vision problems which are also not frequent. Some dogs may get pus filled bumps at their back known as the Comedone Syndrome, and some may get the Von Willebrand disease. However, these are all treatable. Care should be taken after bathing the dog to wipe its uncropped ears dry for avoiding ear infections.
The Miniature Schnauzer is an ideal family pet that will adapt to your lifestyle. As long as you show the dog affection it will be a happy and loving pet.
