We have had at least one miniature schnauzer living with us since 1975. We've had other dogs-- beagles, basset hounds, dachshunds, and pugs. Our grand-dogs are English setters and rottweilers. However, miniature schnauzers are our favorite. These dogs are affectionate, easily housebroken, and they do no shed. They are active and usually get enough exercise patrolling the house.
Our family is proud to own seven miniature schnauzers: Sophie, Emma, Hazel, Luther, Jasper, Elsa, and Louie. They do not shed. It's a good thing since miniature schnauzers love to sit with their people! Ours are groomed every month. We have them cut shorter in warm weather.

Hazel came to us in 2018. Now that Hazel has retired from motherhood, she remains energetic and playful and loves to run in the yard chasing a soccer ball. She has a unique lighter liver pepper and white color combination. Hazel weighs 10 pounds.

Louie is a black and silver male and was born in our house. His parents are Emma and Luther and he will one day be a father. Louie got the best qualities from his parents. His coloring, small head, soulful eyes, and
sweet disposition are from Luther. Louie's thicker hair and smaller stature are from his mother. He is petite and may only reach a height of 10 to 11 inches.

after balls, frisbees, and the other dogs. He is about 13 inches high,
