Counting my blessings one tiny hand print and paw print at a time.
I live a blessed life. Not only do I get to be a full-time, stay-at-home mommy to my beautiful five children but I also get to raise a fantastic dog breed, the Miniature Schnauzer.
Our Schnauzers have become part of our family and my only hope is that my puppies will pass that joy on to their new families. If you are new to the Schnauzer breed I will tell you what I’ve learned about the breed not by research but from personal experience.
When my husband and mother bought me my first pair of Miniature Schnauzers I’ll admit I was not attracted to the breed. It was the beard. The night I brought them home, however, we became inseparable. Schnauzers have a genuine love and loyalty like no other. Each one has a unique personality that shines. They make an ideal family dog. They do not shed so this helps allergy sufferers who are looking for a pet. It’s also nice not to have hair to clean up! Schnauzers can be great with children but I feel they’re best with children when they are exposed to them. Since our dogs are raised with children that gives them a great start. The best advice I can offer is to expose them to everything! They are sponges and are willing to learn anything you take the time to teach.
The most important thing to know is that the life expectancy can be up to 15 years or more. Schnauzers are a hardy dog and generally have very little health problems. It’s a life-long commitment filled with rewards and wonderful memories. I’ve never met a person who regrets owning a Miniature Schnauzer. Even if you don’t purchase from me I hope a Schnauzer blesses your family with all the love and happiness we have received from ours.
