Thanks for stopping by Amore Schnauzers. We adopted our first darling over 9 years ago. I had been wanting a small dog as a companion and one that I could take on a walk that did not yank my arm off sniffing at things, LOL. I had a Scottish Terrier previously, and loved her to death. But I did not think I wanted another one. I had been thinking about this for a couple of years, before deciding on a schnauzer.

Our puppies are raised in our home around my children and a cat or two. They are pretty well socialized by the time they go to new homes. They are around people of all ages, and other animals. We start working on potty training depending upon the weather. They are bathed often and will be given their first haircut depending again upon the weather. I do not like to clip the puppies in really cold weather. Please check out our pictures and also the puppy page for information on what puppies are available.

Thanks again for checking us out. Have an awesome day!!

The Miniature Schnauzer is relatively small in size but in no way toyish or delicate. They are a sturdy, heavy, and muscular dog.They make excellent companions. They are extremely obedient and quick to learn, they are devoted, playful and affectionate. His alertness makes him an excellent guard dog. He is spunky and fearless but not aggressive so that he can run with other dogs. And, like other terriers, he will go to ground to attack vermin of all kinds. One must become aware of these characteristics lest he be lost, stolen, or a victim of an accident. In the suburbs he should be fenced in or walked on a leash.

He is as much at home in the city with a small amount of exercise as he is in the country where he appears tireless. And, he easily adapts to any change of condition or climate. His deepest need, however, is to live as a part of the family, going where they go, doing what they do. Sleeping on the bed, or in his own, beside his owner is his greatest joy. The Miniature Schnauzer does not shed, so he often can be enjoyed by people who are allergic to other breeds of dogs. In return, the owner must keep him groomed to maintain his handsome appearance.
