    The Standard Schnauzer is a dog breed that originated in Germany from at least 14th-15th century, of Schnauzer breed type and progenitor of the Giant Schnauzer and Miniature Schnauzer.

    Initially, it was called Wire-Haired Pinscher, while Schnauzer was adopted in 1879. Since the undercoat catches the loose hair, he hardly sheds at all.
