Farm Dog

Different theories on the development of the Standard Schnauzer can be found, one that rings true to me is their role as an all purpose farm dog.

Origin and Purpose from the Canadian Breed Standard reads:

The standard schnauzer can be traced back to 14th Century Germany.  It is a compact working dog and should be so judged.  Its principal vocation was to guard tradesman's carts and be an all purpose farm dog.

Good Dog!
