Sociable and affectionate, Standard Schnauzers become true members of their families and especially love children. Of the three Schnauzers breeds, the medium, or Standard, is the prototype. At 17 to 20 inches tall and weighing between 35 and 50 pounds, it is truly the “standard” Schnauzer: larger than the Miniature and smaller than the Giant. Schnauzers of all three sizes share several breed hallmarks: a wiry, tight-fitting coat of pure black or “pepper and salt”; a robust, square-built frame; and an elongated head furnished with arched eyebrows and bristly whiskers, accentuating dark brown eyes that gleam with a keen intelligence. Their sporty look is a canine classic.
