How big will my dog get?

I just got a new puppy for mother's day that was born Jan 21st of 2009. He is about 8 inches tall right now so i am wondering how big he will get. I am not sure if he is a mini or a toy breed though since my friend has one that is only 10 weeks old and she is bigger than my dog. Please advise. I am new to this breed.

Is it a Schnauzer?

If your new puppy is a Schnauzer, then he sounds like he is definitely a Miniature.

Although some people breed tiny Schnauzers, (especially in America) there is technically no such thing as a toy schnauzer, according to the Kennel Clubs.

The Miniature is the smallest size of Schnauzer - the others are the Standard and the Giant Schnauzer.

Hope this is helpful and we have loads of information on Miniature Schnauzers all over the website.

Good luck with your new puppy,

Linda and Max
