Our Miniature Schnauzer journey started with the acquisition of Shotz of Brandy Wine a.k.a Shotzy. Shotzy was an 11 week old bundle of dark black curls, a little fluff ball. He had yet to have his first Schnauzer cut. Shotzy appealed to me because he was very responsive to me. He was playful, responded when he was spoken to, not afraid to be picked up or have his feet and ears touched, all good signs for a well socialized and stable personality.
