    Schnauzers have distinctive beards and long, feathery eyebrows. They are generally either salt and pepper grey, black, or white, but they can be brown, too. The original Schnauzer was of the same size as the modern Standard Schnauzer breed and was bred as a working dog. They have been used as a rat catcher, a yard dog, to drive livestock to market and to guard farms. They have also helped the Red Cross by carrying messages in times of war, and have been used as police dogs. The Miniature Schnauzer is the result of crossing the original Schnauzer with other breeds including the Poodle and the Affenpinscher. As a breed, the Schnauzer is friendly and loving with above average intelligence. They have a high energy and make excellent pets as they are loyal companions and are rarely aggressive toward strangers, although they are quick to sound the alarm at a perceived threat.
