The Giant Schnauzer
Noted For His Versatility.

The Giant Schnauzer, at one time was called the
Munich Schnauzer, is the largest by far, of the three
Schnauzers.  It was not bred for a specific purpose, but
for versatility.  Over the years it has proved himself as a
drover's dog, a brewery guard, a cart dog, a herding
dog and a superlative police dog.

The Giant Schnauzer is a robust, more heavy-set
than slender dog.  It is square in build, and resembles a
larger more powerful version of the Standard Schnauzer.
The alert, spirited, sound, reliable temperament, rugged
build, and dense, weather-resistant wiry coat make
for one of the most useful, powerful and
enduring working dogs.

The good looking Giant Schnauzer sports a beard.
Its coat is wiry and double, and it comes in black, or
pepper-and-salt.  It should be stripped to maintain texture.
The Giant Schnauzer is very intelligent and does well in
obedience.  It is alert, spirited, reliable and amiable, not
shy, and never vicious, but is a commanding figure when
aroused.  It makes a good family dog for the country
or suburbs where it can get lots of exercise.
