Schnauzer is a squarely-proportioned, small dog with
a long head, bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows. Its
thick, prominent eyebrows and long mustache are often
trimmed to accentuate the dog's square cut shape. The
head is long with a strong muzzle, and a well-developed
black nose. It has dark eyes that are oval, and v-shaped
ears that fold forward when left natural. Its front
legs are very straight and the tail is usually docked.
It has a harsh outer coat and a soft undercoat.
