These Schnauzer pictures remind me of a time in my childhood when I lived on a farm that trained German police dogs. The dogs were kept in a kennel when not being trained. All of them were German police dogs except for two Giant Schnauzers. I wasn't frightened of any of the dogs, but the Giant Schnauzers were always the most aggressive out of all of the dogs when they were in the kennels. That memory has always stuck with me for some reason.
I don't know how we ended up with a Schnauzer mix, but somehow we did. He looks so similar to the Giant Schnauzers of my childhood, but he's much smaller. His name is Puppy, and Puppy has completely changed my previously skewed opinion of Schnauzers. Based on my earlier experiences with Schnauzers, I didn't really like the dog breed. But Puppy has proven to be the best dog that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is very smart and protective, loyal, and affectionate. My life has truly been enriched by having Puppy around.
Because Puppy isn't a full-blooded Schnauzer, I had to find other Schnauzer pictures to illustrate the distinctive appearance of Schnauzer dogs, and hopefully to show some of the Schnauzer personality as well.
