This piece captures in my distinctive 'black n white' style the characterful face of the Schnauzer with it's big bushey eye-brows and upright alert ears. Hailing from Germany the Schnauzer was initialy bred as a 'ratter' to help farmers and warehouse owners in their efforts to control vermin. In that sense, the Schnauzer shares a great deal of it's character with our terriers who were bred for similar purposes in the UK. The Jack Russell and Yorkshire Terrier to name two. The breeds share the same small stature and folded ears to protect the inner ear when chasing their prey.
Of course, nowadays, the Schnauzer and the range of terrier breeds have become almost exclusively much loved pets across the world.
