I've been reading all the posts and I have to say that I don't think schnauzers are like boxers but I will say one thing that we gave our mother and father a mini schnauzer for a christmas gift back in 1990. Heidi was the sweetest little girl you would want to meet. The only thing was she had a lot of health problems and eventually broke my parents heart to lose her at age 7. She was a baby to two elderly people and she gave them 7 wonderful years that they would never forget.
