The lovable Schnauzer is a versatile canine that can come in varied sizes. Today there are Miniature, Standard, and Giant Schnauzers, and each size is popular with families in the United States. No matter their size, the Schnauzer is famous for their wiry coats, distinctive facial features, and charming personalities. Because of these traits, they are a popular parent breed for many different mixes. A Schnauzer mix is an adorable, lovable, and unforgettable dog.
Their quirky characteristics have made the Schnauzer popular among families for many years. As a mix, your Schnauzer will generally take on some traits from each of their purebred parent breeds. Depending on the size of your Schnauzer parent, your mix can range from small to large, with personality traits that fall anywhere in between both parent pups.
We are going to walk through our favorite designer Schnauzer mixed breeds. Get ready for many new kinds of adorable. Before heading off to a breeder, check your local Schnauzer rescue to rule out the possibility of any Schnauzer mixes that adopt before you shop.
The Schnauzer is a German dog breed that started back in the 14th or 15th century. The dog’s whiskers have become one of this breed’s most distinguishing features. It almost looks like this pup has a beard or facial hair. This breed is a popular show breed and comes in several assorted colors.
The Schnauzer is protective of his family and domain. These pups are barkers, and if someone comes to the door that they don’t know, they will be vocal about it! Because of its affinity for the family and lower grooming requirements (despite having a longer coat), the Schnauzer has become a very popular parent breed for several “designer dogs.” These are breeds created out of two purebred parents. Let’s take a look.
If you are not certain of your dog’s genetic makeup, you can use an at-home DNA test kit to find out.
Border Schnollie: Schnauzer Border Collie Mix
The Border Schnollie is a medium-sized mix between a Standard Schnauzer and a Border Collie. This energetic breed is likely to resemble a Schnauzer while sporting the signature Border Collie colorings, usually black and white. Both parent breeds have high energy reserves and have a long history as working canines. Combine the two and you’ll have an intelligent mix who craves both physical and mental stimulation, with destructive consequences if either is ignored.
While the Border Schnollie is an exuberant and faithful canine, we do not recommend them to novice owners due to this breed’s high maintenance requirements, specifically their intense exercise demands and stubborn nature. In the proper environment with room to roam and a dedicated owner, the Border Schnollie is devoted, loving and bring joy to the entire family.
Bowzer: Schnauzer Basset Hound Mix
The Bowzer is a mix between a Schnauzer and a Basset Hound. This alert dog is very intelligent, playful, and curious. These attributes and their social personality make them a wonderful option for families with children or those looking for a devoted companion. This dog loves to explore and should be given plenty of opportunities for walks and to sniff out their outdoor surroundings.
The Bowzer generally sports the long, short body of a Basset Hound and weighs between 20 to 50 pounds. They can be wary of strangers and have a stubborn streak, so any Bowzer owner should make a priority of training and socializing this breed from a young age. When this hybrid is adopted by a strong leader who commands respect, they flourish into a well-mannered and outgoing pup!
Chizer: Schnauzer Chihuahua Mix
The Chizer is a mix between a Miniature Schnauzer and a Chihuahua. Because the Chihuahua is such a tiny dog, it is extremely rare that they are purposefully bred with any of the larger Schnauzer breeds. Thanks to their compact little bodies, the Chizer adapts well to many different environments – great news for apartment dwellers! They don’t, however, do very well in cold weather and are better suited for mild climates.
This tiny breed has no idea how small they are, a common quirk of many Chihuahuas and their respective mixes, who are notoriously bold and charismatic. While this pup is full of courage and personality, they are also very gentle and generally have a sweet nature. This makes them a wonderful choice for elderly and adult families. Unfortunately, the Chizer does not have endless patience with children, especially those who are not taught how to properly handle small breeds and should not be adopted into homes with young children.
Eskimo Schnauzer: Schnauzer American Eskimo Mix
The Eskimo Schnauzer is usually mixed with a Miniature Schnauzer and a Miniature American Eskimo to produce a small dog. However, larger versions exist when bred with Standard Schnauzers and American Eskimos. These bigger mixes will usually weigh over 30 pounds. Regardless of the varying sizes of this hybrid, the result is a friendly and affectionate companion who will bond very closely with their family.
This pup is very playful and loves games such as fetch and chase. However, these chasing instincts can sometimes be directed towards small animals they perceive as prey and therefore the Eskimo Schnauzer should be monitored when in contact with these creatures. This breed is smart and active, requiring ample mental and physical stimulation to lead a happy and healthy life.
Mauzer: Schnauzer Maltese Mix
This petite mix between a Mini Schnauzer and a Maltese produces 10 to 15 pounds of pure adorableness known as the Mauzer. This intelligent little dog is likely to be very playful and full of delight. Mauzers usually bond very closely with one person, and may not be the best option for those looking for a companion for the entire family. However, if you’re single, elderly or an adult-only family looking for a devoted lapdog – the Mauzer is a wonderful option.
This pup is not a quiet breed and has a tendency to bark at various stimuli. Socialization and training can help deter this tendency from becoming incessant. However, this is a consideration if you are hoping to keep a Mauzer in an apartment with strict noise constraints.
Miniature Schnaupin: Schnauzer Miniature Pinscher Mix
The Miniature Schnaupin is a mix between the Miniature Schnauzer and Miniature Pinscher. A lot of “mini” going on in this mix, so it’s not surprising that this breed will between quite small, usually weighing between 10 to 20 pounds. The Miniature Schnaupin is not short on personality though and is an energetic breed that is full of life.
While this hybrid is quite friendly and outgoing, they can sometimes be wary of strangers. Proper introductions and frequent socialization should quickly expel any suspicion a Mini Schnaupin may be feeling. They also tend to be a tad bit stubborn and can become a handful if not provided with boundaries and routine training. A well-adjusted Mini Schnaupin will delight the entire family with their spirit and contagious joyfulness.
Miniature Schnoxie: Schnauzer Dachshund Mix
The Miniature Schnoxie is a spunky mix between a Miniature Schnauzer and Dachshund. This medium-sized dog usually weighs between 15 and 30 pounds with a distinctive Dachshund body, although the Miniature Schnoxie’s legs may be a bit longer. Given their often wiry, low-shedding coats, this mix may be a hypoallergenic option for dog lovers with allergies!
This breed is extremely devoted, which sometimes can manifest into protective and even aggressive reactions if they sense you are in need of defending, even if it’s just from your amazon delivery woman. You’ll want to socialize a Miniature Schnoxie, introducing them to many different people, animals, and environments to help with this habit. If socialization is practiced from a young age, this hybrid will grow into a doting and sociable family companion.
Miniboz: Schnauzer Boston Terrier Mix
The Miniboz is a small dog produced by breeding a Schnauzer, mixed with a Boston Terrier. These animated pups generally weigh between 10 to 25 pounds and are malleable to many different living environments, including apartments. They are described as a “shaggy” looking dog, with a wiry coat and a strong body.
The Miniboz does magnificently with all types of families, including those who have children. They are both playful and gentle, making them a suitable companion for both older and younger children alike. They are easily trainable thanks to their gleeful disposition and eagerness to please. All in all, the Miniboz is a great option for first-time dog owners looking for a marvelous addition to their family.
Pom-A-Nauze: Schnauzer Pomeranian Mix
This hybrid goes by many different names: Scheranian, Pomanauzer, and Schnauzeranian. For our purposes, we will call this Mini Schnauzer and Pomeranian mix the Pom-A-Nauze. This tiny dog can weigh between 3 to 15 pounds, but there’s a lot of personalities packed into that little body.
Both affectionate and social, the Pom-A-Nauze is a wonderful addition to adult-only families. Due to their small size and fragile bodies, we don’t recommend this little breed for families with young children. This mix might be a frequent barker, something to consider if you live in close quarters. Overall, this is a wonderfully intelligent and devoted Pomeranian mix.
Schnau-Tzu: Schnauzer Shih Tzu Mix
Meet the Schnau-Tzu! A small mix between a Mini Schnauzer and a Shih Tzu. This pup will usually weigh between 7 and 14 pounds with flopped over ears and wiry fur. The Schnau-Tzu is friendly with people and dogs alike. They are especially good around children and make great family pets.
The Schnau-Tzu is a heavy shedder and will require regular brushing and grooming. This pup is also intelligent and active, meaning they will require adequate mental exercises as well as lots of physical activity to feel happy and well-balanced. Sometimes people will underestimate small breeds, wrongly assuming they don’t require much work or exercise. Don’t make that mistake with the Schnau-Tzu!
Schnauzador: Schnauzer Labrador Retriever Mix
The Schnauzador is a mix between either a Standard or Giant Schnauzer and a Labrador Retriever. This beautiful mix between two very popular breed choices will certainly make for a highly-trainable and agreeable hybrid. This pup is a fast learner and very eager to please, the perfect recipe for an exceptionally well-behaved dog.
The Schnauzador can be wary and even fearful of strangers, a trait most likely inherited by their Schnauzer parent. Lots of socialization can help your Schnauzador become more comfortable with new people and environments. Make this a priority – you don’t want your dog to become anxious or unfriendly towards visitors. They are also an active mix that does best when provided with ample exercise.
Schneagle: Schnauzer Beagle Mix
The sweet Schneagle is a friendly Beagle mix between and Schnauzer and a Beagle. This jolly pup is a friend to all, including other dogs, children, and even strangers. Thanks to their agreeable personalities, the Schneagle makes an ideal family companion who will likely form intense attachments to the ones they love.
Because the Schneagle is so affectionate and companionable, this is not a breed suited for families with busy schedules or ones that travel frequently. They can easily suffer from separation anxiety and become sullen if neglected. However, if this hybrid is given the love and attention they so deserve, you’ll be rewarded with a joyful and playful dog that will keep your entire family laughing!
Schnese: Schnauzer Havanese Mix
Schnese. “Bless you!” No, not a sneeze, a Schnese. If you’re lucky enough to be the owner of a Schnese, you’ll have fun playing this game with anyone who asks what breed of dog you have. This mix is the result of a Mini Schnauzer and a Havanese cross-breeding. This pup can be small or toy-sized and is equal parts lapdog and playmate.
Due to their emotional intelligence, intuition, and devotion to their owners, the Schnese can be a wonderful emotional support or therapy canine to those who need it. However, this relationship must be mututal. The Schnese will demand much of your attention and will not do well in a home where they are not a big part of the family or left alone for extended periods of time. If you have the time for this affectionate breed, they will reward you endlessly.
Schnocker: Schnauzer Cocker Spaniel Mix
The Schnocker, also known as a Cockershnauz and Mini Schnocker, is another small breed on this list that is usually mixed with a Miniature Schnauzer. This small dog is lively, playful and agile and functions best as a devoted canine companion to an adult family. When they are done exploring and playing, the Schnocker loves to cuddle up next to you and show you endless amounts of affection.
The Schnocker is happy as your close companion who is gets ample amounts of time, attention and love. If left alone for too long, this breed can suffer from separation anxiety and is prone to excessive barking. This is something people who live in apartments or in close proximity to others should consider. They also can easily become overly excitable, and therefore adjust better in calmer environments with a predictable schedule.
Schnoodle: Schnauzer Poodle Mix
Say Schnoodle five times fast! This Schnauzer Poodle mix is as cute as its name suggests. This pup is usually mixed with a Miniature Poodle and a Miniature Schnauzer, and the resulting hybrid will weigh 10 to 20 pounds. Although larger versions exist when bred with Standard Poodles or Giant Schnauzers, and can reach weights of up to 60 pounds. This pup is hypoallergenic and is commonly used as a terrific allergy-free therapy dog. They are also one of the more common poodle crossbreeds.
The Schnoodle can sometimes favor one person in particular and should be encouraged to spend equal time with all members of your family if you’d like them to be a communal family pet. Favoritism is a common characteristic in Schnauzers. The Schnoodle is very smart and easily trainable, which makes them a popular choice to perform various canine service jobs. This mix does extremely well with children and moderately well with other animals.
Schnorgi: Schnauzer Corgi Mix
It is tricky to find a mixed breed that didn’t become infinitely cuter by adding in the sweet Corgi. This remains true for the Schnorgi, an adorable mix between a Corgi and a Schnauzer. In general, this pup will inherit a Corgi’s body with the facial features of a Schnauzer.
While the Schnorgi can adapt well to apartment living, they have extensive energy reserves and must be properly exercised regardless of their environment. They can also be quite stubborn and need a firm owner to provide consistent training, or they will likely develop Small Dog Syndrome. This lovable breed is both playful and cuddly and makes a wonderful family companion.
Schnu: Schnauzer Shiba Inu Mix
The fox-like Schnu is a beautiful mix between a Schnauzer and a Shiba Inu. This wonderful companion dog is vibrant, full of life and at times quite mischievous. The Schnu makes a great family dog due to their playful personalities and happy disposition. They get along well with children and other dogs but may exhibit a prey drive towards other small animals.
A Schnu is certain to keep you entertained and on your toes! While their spirited side is quite cute, it’s also important to set boundaries and provide kind but firm leadership so this mix won’t take things too far. This pup is very smart so training is simple with fun, positive reinforcement.
Schnug: Schnauzer Pug Mix
The Miniature Schnauzer and Pug mix, known as a Schnug, is an absolute ray of sunshine who has both a lively and happy disposition. Although mostly agreeable, the Schnug can also exhibit some strong-willed and defiant behavior. Don’t let their small stature convince you to ignore boundaries. This pup should be provided with kind but firm training to develop a well-behaved dog.
The Schnug loves to be your little shadow and is a great option for those looking for a faithful lapdog to absolutely adore them. They should be included as a member of the family or they will likely become sulky and can develop separation anxiety if they feel isolated. This active breed is bright and quick with a moderate prey drive. This instinct for the hunt should be monitored around other small animals or off-leash activities outdoors.
Siberian Schnauzer: Siberian Husky Schnauzer Mix
The Siberian Schnauzer is a Siberian Husky mix between the Husky and the Schnauzer. This awesome companion pup gets the best of both world from these parents. The Siberian Husky has a strong-willed but friendly demeanor and combined with the inquisitive yet cautious Schnauzer, you’ll have a dog that will keep you on your toes for many years to come!
This mix will combine the medium stature of the Husky, and the traits of perky ears, with the scruff and beard of the Schnauzer. You’ll get a pup with lots of personality and some great looks to boot. This mix will be extremely intelligent, almost to the point of seeming like it’s not smart, but that’s just the stubbornness of the breed coming through. It’s also possible that your mix will end up with blue eyes from the Husky parent.
Sniffon: Schnauzer Brussels Griffon Mix
Is the Sniffon the perfect apartment dog? Let’s get into this Miniature Schnauzer and Brussels Griffon mix. The Sniffon is a small, quiet pup who isn’t prone to excessive barking and has moderate to low exercise requirements. A great apartment dog indeed!
The Sniffon is very bright, which can sometimes get them into mischief if they are left unsupervised. They are problem solvers and quite agile, making them capable escape artists if the opportunity presents itself. A Sniffon owner should take care to secure their dog when they leave and not allow them to remain outside by themselves. The Sniffon gets along well with children and other dogs and makes a great family pet!
Snorkie: Schnauzer Yorkshire Terrier Mix
This Yorkshire Terrier and Miniature Schnauzer mix is quite the beauty! With an adorable face framed by flopped-over ears and long silky hair, the Snorkie steals many hearts They tend to have the body of a Mini Schnauzer and the facial features of a Yorkie. The Snorkie is very eager to please and easily trainable if given the right motivations (typically some yummy treats!)
This well-behaved pup is wonderful with children and makes a great family pet. However, they do not do well on their own and can bark excessively or take to chewing if they are alone for too long. This mix is very playful and requires plenty of exercise to burn off their excess energy. Yet, once playtime is over, a Snorkie will be more than happy to cuddle up in your lap and give you all the affection one could want.
The Schnauzer is a diverse pup that can come in many different sizes. This makes their mixed breed possibilities quite vast. These are just a few of the excellent Schnauzer mixes available. There are obviously many different options for Schnauzer mixes, and we’d encourage you to check out your local no kill pet shelter before spending the money at a breeder.
Most of the mixes featured here will make wonderful family pets, and provide you with many years of companionship. Adopting a Schnauzer mix will likely improve the longevity of your pet by avoiding the health issues of a purebred while avoiding the price tag that comes along with it.

We just got a Giant Schnauzer and Akbash mix . Just trying to find out what she will look like. Right now she looks a lot like her farther the Giant Schnauzer in the face and coat but has the Akbash build. She is 3 months old

My mini schnauzer Roxy , accidently mated with a standard schnauzer . She’s about 6 weeks pregnant now. Anyone have experience with the pregnancy experience for the dam? Worried about size of puppies being too large for her.

Back in august of 2021, I found 2 strays they were trying to cross a busy street, I pulled over and the sweet babies came running to me, they were filthy and lost, I tried so hard to find their owners, posted every where on social media for lost pets, went back to the area a few times, and no one came forward. :( well the the Shih Tzu) was pregnant, didn't find out till weeks later, she gave birth to 4 healthy boys, they were a mix of Shih-Tzu and Schnauzer/Terrier mix, omg the babies were beautiful, they all went to good homes, only family and friends that I knew, well I kept Penny and Astro, they now run free and have plenty of space in my back yard and often run and chase everything at the ranch, they are loved and well taken care of, i think i was meant to find them!! penny since has spayed, and astro neutered, they are living their best life, and have made friends with our lab Bella, our Pomeranian Kiki and our 3 tabby cats.

4 years ago I adopted stray dog, later found out he is a mix breed between Labrador and Schnauzer. Exactly as you described, at first he was fearful and antisocial but with time he became very agreeable and friendly although he doesn’t like strangers in the house. He is completely black, middle sized, has a Schnauzer head and a body of a Labrador but has no tail.. very quiet and great runner, loves hiking, almost doesn’t shed and he is hypoallergenic. During a day he mostly sleep and while we travel he asks to go out only every 3-4 h. At the time we adopted him, I was pregnant and he formed close connection with the baby so now they are completely inseparable. I would say that I am the first person he is attracted because he spends most of the time next to me but prefer my husband for a walk :) This year we will move to Australia and I hope that he will travel well- it’s the longest air travel in his life:(

We have had three Mauzers and they were all so different. We lost Tuffy, our first Mauzer when he was around 15. He was very lovable but a barker. He loved to cuddle and fetch sticks. He never liked other dogs. We always groomed him with.a mini schnauzer cut. He had big, adorable ears. We then adopted two sister Mauzers - Princess and Moppet. We will never go back to just one again! They are so good together and are almost opposites. Moppet has more of the schnauzer traits. She is not a cuddler and is wary of strangers. She wants to be close but not right next to you. She has a stockier body than her sister Princess. Whereas Moppet seems to be more like a mini schnauzer, Princess is more like a Maltese. She is an absolute cuddler. She wants to be right next to you and will follow us around. She is more of a barker than Moppet and tends to get nervous more. She also is cat-like. Very lynth in her movements. She is an escape artist. They are both very playful and loving. Neither like other dogs much. They also tend to favor one person at times and then switch it up. They are both adorable with Moppet being black with a white chest and Princess being silver. They are great dogs!

I am looking endlessly for another little Mauser, I had my little Sam. Sadly he passed away June 7 of this year like I said, I would love to find another one not to replace him, but to help my heart not be so sad.
October 27, 2021 at 8:16 am
I have recently bred a litter of Boozers. B is for Biewer Terrier, Zer for miniature schnauzer. Booze because dad is called Gin. Mum is one of my min schnauzers, and dad is one of my biewer Terriers. They are fabulous pups, exceptionally friendly and sociable, love snuggles and are always so happy. They will be fabulous companion dogs for any ody from single people right through to large families. I am sure they will be fabulous therapy dogs too. I am so happy with them 😊
October 18, 2021 at 11:39 pm
Are there any breeds that mix miniature Schnauzer, miniature Poodle, and a miniature Australian Shepherd together? Like is done with Golden Lab, Schnauzer, and Poodle.
October 20, 2021 at 11:37 am
While it is likely this dog does exist, we cannot find any details about it. Perhaps consider reaching out to a breeder of Aussiedoodles or Miniature Schnauzzies to ask if they have heard of it and please let us know what you find!

I am looking for another mini schnauzer. My Caesar laid to rest August 11, 2021. 15 yrs and 9 months. He was a mix but I don't know with what.
October 7, 2021 at 5:00 pm
I do not understand calling these mixed breeds Hybrids? A Hybrid is a mixture of 2 different species such as a horse and a donkey, creating a mule (who is genetically sterilized and cannot produce offspring in most cases) These are plain old mixed breeds, or Mutts as we used to call them. You are doing the public a disservice by pretending that these are " breeds" by giving them a name. They are lovable, adorable mixed breeds that are being bred as designer dogs and cost huge amounts of money... Schnauzers (I have had Giant and standard) are incredible breeds) are the perfect family dog if the family takes the time to train them, why muck up centuries of perfecting the breeds with cross breeding... Most of the time , the pedigreed breeds can cost less that those designer mutts that you mentioned. AND if you buy from a reputable breeder who has done all the health checks on the parents , you can be assured of a healthy well temper pet . whereas designer breeders do not care about health checks especially on breeds that carry genetic problems... either way people are spending thousands of dollars on mutts and it is really foolish...
September 11, 2021 at 3:45 pm
What would I call a schnauzer fox terrier mix?
September 14, 2021 at 9:41 am
It's commonly referred to as a Wire Hair Schnauzer.
August 29, 2021 at 7:33 pm
I had a Schnauzer/ Spitz mix. We called them Snitz and they were great dogs. They lived to be 15.
August 30, 2021 at 11:17 am
Great info - thanks Virginia.
May 23, 2021 at 5:13 pm
We lost our sweet, highly intelligent, loving Schnauzer/Bichon/Collie mix (Morgan) on March 27 of this year after 12 years, two months, and 23 days of companionship. He died during surgery to remove a mass on his liver. He was truly the best part of every single day that we spent together. A perfect size, perfect disposition, perfect companion. He loved people (young, old, and in-between), dogs, and cats -- but not squirrels.
We miss him every minute of every day. He was spoiled, but he gave us so much more than we could ever have given him. He definitely had his quirks -- hated the car, and was highly suspicious of anyone wearing a hat and sunglasses. And he had allergies, so he had to get allergy shots every three weeks.
May 24, 2021 at 6:31 pm
Hi Marlene! Thank you for sharing your story with our readers. Very sorry to hear about your loss. Hopefully when the time is right, you'll be able to welcome a new furbaby into your life!
May 19, 2021 at 4:39 pm
I had a Schnauzer / Jack Russell mix. She lived to 15 yrs old. Till the end all you had to due is wind he up and she would run all day. My best friend and personality +++.
May 21, 2021 at 2:02 pm
Sounds like a great dog, Judy! Thanks for stopping by to comment!
September 5, 2021 at 8:08 am
Hi Judy! I recently rescued a 4 yr old mini schnauzer from our local humane society. She said he’s registered, but when I looked at him and touched his coat, parts were smooth and parts were wiry. I didn’t expect that because our neighbors have 2 minis and they are very soft and silky. I’m convinced he’s got some Jack Russell in him. His face is black with floppy ears and a wiry muzzle. His eyes are more like a Yorkie. His body and legs are white with black spots, and has no tail. What do you think? Am I way off?
May 6, 2021 at 9:30 pm
I used to have a miniature schnauzer named Alfie, still, miss him. I now have a Schnauzerlier, a miniature schnauzer crossed with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She'll be 3 this August, has beautiful colorings & face, simply adore her!
May 11, 2021 at 6:57 pm
That sounds like an amazing dog, Lorraine! Thanks for stopping by to share your experience with the breed!
April 17, 2021 at 6:29 pm
I’ve got an Alaska Husky and Schnauzer mix. I named her after Marilynn Monroe because she’s beautiful & very intelligent but can come across as beautiful and dumb. She's so smart that she can trick you into thinking she’s not smart. Lol. I wish I could post a picture of my beautiful girl.
April 18, 2021 at 4:45 pm
Hi Amber! Sounds like you have an amazing pup! Feel free to drop us a line at our contact page, and if you give us permission, we'd be happy to include your girl on our page with an image as long as it meets our image requirements! Thanks for stopping by to share!

Lived with Miniature Schnauzer named Buddy. When I moved in with him as a renter, had never seen one and thought how ugly he looked. Said to myself who would own such an ugly pet. After 2 years of taking him for walks (the owner didn't walk him), I fell in love with him. I miss him every day and it's been 4 years. Stubborn, self-centered andn big pee tree marker. But I loved him so much!

I just adopted an adorable miniature schnauzer and beagle mix 8 weeks old. I loved reading this article and it helped me making my decision on adopting him and I won't regret it. They are such nice dogs and love to play.
February 13, 2021 at 2:18 pm
Glad to hear that it helped you, Matthew! Sounds like a great pup, and I'm sure you will enjoy each other for many years to come! Good luck!
February 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm
I loved looking at all of the Schnauzer mixes. I had a miniature Schnauzer named Jayzee and he lived until he was 16 years old. I now have a Shitzu and Bichon mix named Benjamin ( Benji) who is so cute and a wonderful watchdog. If I could have found another Schnauzer, I would have gotten another one. Schnauzers are wonderful pets to have.
February 8, 2021 at 3:08 pm
I'm glad you enjoyed the article, Leslie! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment on our site!
January 21, 2021 at 1:03 am
Love this list! I love Schnauzers!! Grew up with a mini schnauzer who was like a brother to me. Lost my Schnau-tzu, Benji in February this year. He made it to 16. As a healthy adult he weighed about 22-23 pounds, so a bit bigger then described here. He never shed much either.
I currently have a 3 year Schnollie (rough collie/mini schnauzer) he is 70 lbs and the cutest fluffy butt on the planet! He’s got the classic schnauzer beard and gives lots of schnauzer sniffs!
January 22, 2021 at 4:02 am
Thanks for the feedback Bridget! Sounds like you've had some amazing Schnau's! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and comment!

I have adopted a Schnauzer Chihuahua mix. We had a DNA test done. Love, love, love him and I never imagined having a small dog at all. He is 12 and is the smartest dog I've ever owned and the ONLY dog my husband has ever allowed on the sofa let alone his lap! What would this mixed breed be called?
December 11, 2020 at 1:47 am
Hi Jan! Sounds like a wonderful dog! This mix is called a Chizer, and will be one we add here on this list in the future!
May 5, 2020 at 2:25 pm
I have a fantastic Schnauzer mix, Schnauzer & Italian Greyhound. Adorable looks and mentally! :)
May 5, 2020 at 8:31 pm
Thanks for commenting Maggan, sounds like a wonderful pup!
May 30, 2022 at 5:23 pm
I also have a white Italian greyhound mini schnauzer mix! She has been with us for 10 years and is just the smartest and sweetest dog I have ever had. I would love to get another dog of this mix, but have never been able to find another. It seems to be a rare cross, which seems unfortunate to me.
