In Germany, Schnauzers were used as farmyard vermin hunters, herders and all purpose watchdogs. Schnauze is German for muzzle or snout. It is the Schnauzer's beard and eyebrows that give it such defining and easily recognizable breed type! Our Schnauzer head pendant details their profuse bristly mustache, whiskers and eyebrows which are the hallmark of the Schnauzer breed. You can see and feel the crisp, well defined lines in the head of this Schnauzer charm as it merges into its muscular neck. This Schnauzer breed jewelry has the "wow" factor for any Schnauzer lover!
