Breed origins

In its beginnings the Schnauzer was used in the south of the German territory as a stable dog given its good relationship with horses. With zeal the presence of any rodent lurked and then immediately killed him, so from a very early age he was called a buzzard through the town. In the founding of the Pinscher-Schnauzer Club in the year 1895 he was enrolled as Pinscher with a rough coat.
