About breed

How could I know if the puppy I’m buying is a pure schnauzer? And how could I distinguish a Toy from a mini schnauzer when they are puppies? I want a toy schnauzer that is very smaller than the mini. Maybe do u know any breeder in southern FL or southern LA?

toy schnauzer

I'm afraid we don't.
Because there is no breed recognised as a Toy Schnauzer, another breed has been added somewhere along the breeding line to make them smaller, so they are not pure Schnauzers.

Also, some of the tiny "Toy Schnauzers" have structural problems, so we would not recommend getting one. Perhaps look for a small female Mini Schnauzer or consider a smaller breed if size is very important.
