The gen­tle­man

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

While the Sch­nauzer may be one of the most aris­to­cratic dogs in terms of ap­pear­ance, groom­ing them takes a bit of work. Breeder Eric De­cano tells us that keep­ing a Sch­nauzer’s jacket show-qual­ity in­volves plenty of pluck­ing by hand. “It should be a wiry coat. But once you ta­per a wiry coat, it could soften.”

Hid­den po­ten­tial: In con­trast to its high­main­te­nance fur, the Sch­nauzer doesn’t shed, which makes them great com­pany for any oc­ca­sion. De­cano says “be­cause they’re non­shed­ding, they can go on your bed or on your couch,” he says.

Fun fact: That rugged fa­cial hair and bushy set of eye­brows isn’t just for show. Its ori­gins can be traced back to the Sch­nauzer’s days as ver­min hunters.
