Is my puppy a white mini schnauzer?
Hi, I have recently got a puppy from a breeder and was told that he is a white mini schnauzer. I have noticed that he is growing bigger and especially the legs are getting longer. He is now 18 weeks old.
I have attached before and after grooming pictures. Please help to advise.
NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX:
It's hard to say if he is 100% Schnauzer, although he looks like one - but where is the trademark Schnauzer beard?!
As far as his legs being long, Max also has long legs, similar to yours, but they do not look so spindly as a traditional Schnauzer trim leaves the fur on the legs longer.
If you allowed his hair to grow and then got a Schnauzer trim at the groomers, your dog would look more like a schnauzer.
I've just noticed that you said he is 18 weeks old - he does seem pretty big for 18 weeks. Anyhow, he looks like a nice dog , whether he is a 100% purebred or not.
