We got Ozzy just over a couple of years ago & are so proud of him. We’ve had dogs before but never a mini schnauzer. We wanted a breed that didn’t shed much. We are so overjoyed with our Oz & are really taken with the breed. He has so much personality. He’s very good, clever, affectionate, easy to train & very talkative – he’s so funny & endearing. He’s also ok to leave alone. I didn’t realise what they meant when they said that Schnauzers are vocal, & was worried he was going bark all the time, but he doesn’t bark any more than any other dog we’ve had – probably less in fact. He’s the best dog we’ve ever had! He’s fab.
