standard schnauzer

How or when did the breeding of these dog started?

We don't know when did it started but it has been around for several centuries. You can see all different species between several schnauzers. EX: There is mostly black, gray, and white. Sometimes all mixed up.

What was it designed for?

Some schnauzers were breaded to be ratters, guard dogs or all-purpose dogs for German farms. In my experience they are more like house dogs, plus they can be trained easily to help cops or fire-man.
