How much does your Miniature Schnauzer weigh?
« on: November 14, 2009, 03:21:08 PM »
I was just wondering. Nessie's breeder said she would be about 20lb. She is now 13 weeks at 5lb. I'm reading that the average is about 15 to 18lb. I'm guessing she is about 6 inches tall.

Angie,

As I know you are concerned about the cost of dog food (as we all are)... I hope you didn't actually buy a baby Giant Schnauzer! LOL

Nitro is just about 15" at the shoulder, almost 1" over the breed standard and weighed 20# at last week's vet's visit.  Vet says he's in great shape, can feel ribs and he has a waist (covered with lots of hair, though!).  At 2 1/2 years, he's right where he should be.

 I can't wait to see what Nessie will be at!! And just how she will be when she's all grown up!! I will miss the puppy days, but not the "terrible two's" too much.

Lona is 11 lbs fully grown at a year and a half.  She's turned out to be a very petite little Schnauzer!  The cat is bigger than she is! lol

What a beautiful picture!

I just visited someone with three Minis, all under 15 lb and they looked so small (cute!) compared to Muka. But I actually wanted a bigger Mini... and got one!

Thank you! (it's cause i have such purty models  ;) )

PS:
We're actually currently on a waiting list through MSR and i secretly hope we'll get paired up with a bigger mini when we find a good match for Lona (& Larry!).

How cute is she!? I think that might be how small her sister will be! She seemed to be the runt. When Nessie weighed in at 6wks, she was 2.7 lbs and Alice was 1.1 lbs.

Lori,

I just wanted to be sure you are aware of MapleCreek MSR, too!
