    Schnauzers

    Good book for someone interested in Schnauzers. I bought this book and after reading, sent to my son who recently purchased a miniature Schnauzer puppy.
    Gives good basic info on the breed and what to expect as puppy matures.

    Top Dog

    This book has everything a new mini-schnauzer owner needs. The questions that you wrote down to take to the breeder are all answered in this book. Don't let the price or size of the book fool you. It has been extremely instrumental in my experience of owning a new mini-schnauzer. Top Dog *****
