Schnauzers are recognizable by their long mustache and thick eyebrows. Their coats grow relatively fast such that they can be styled in more ways than one, from the Traditional Cut to the more voguish Mohawk.
The cost price of a Schnauzer range between $600 to $5,500. They are classified into Miniature Schnauzer, Standard Schnauzer and Giant Schnauzer, and the large price spectrum is due to this classification. Purebred Schnauzers are rare dog breeds, giving them their astronomical price tags. Schnauzers require a lot of effort in terms of grooming and quality dog food to maintain the health of their coat. Expect a monthly maintenance cost of about $150.
Among the various Schnauzer mixes, the Border Schnollie and the Bowzer are two of the three best Schnauzer mixes that you never knew existed, followed by the Chonzer.
Miniature Schnauzer is the smaller version of the Schnauzer dog type. It is a small-sized dog that is believed to have been developed from the miniature specimens of their bigger cousins – Standard Schnauzers. This dog breed is also believed to be the offspring of a mix between the Standard Schnauzer and a smaller dog breed like Poodles, Miniature Pinscher, or Affenpinscher.
Schnauzers can come in common colors like brown, white and wheaten, as well as the rarer beautiful tricolor coat of black, white and tan. Some of these signature Schnauzer coat color combinations are even given names like the Salt & Pepper Schnauzers. Schnauzers also come in various coat patterns like those brindle and merle Schnauzers, bearing different hair characteristics like the wiry coated, mega coated and super coated Schnauzers.
