White Schnauzer

There is controversy surrounding the white schnauzer because American Kennel Club, or AKC, does not recognize white schnauzers in conformation shows and disqualifies them. Even though they are colors from the original breed standards and also they are not albino dogs. They are still disqualified from conformation shows. The white schnauzer is a very popular dog in Europe and as show dogs.

This white schnauzer enjoys a brisk stroll through the forest and exploring the outdoors. He wears a bell on his collar so that the owners can hear him coming.

Schnauzers Pictures

Some more schnauzers pictures. This mini schnauzer’s name is Katy, she’s about 5 years old (in human years) and about 36 years old in dog years. With un-cropped ears and a big bushy beard and big eyebrows, she is relaxing after playing with her toy.

Notice that the inside of her ears are pink. They should be this color and her ears need to be kept clean because Schnauzers are susceptible to ear infections, especially if her ears are floppy. If you take your schnauzer swimming, make sure to dry them as soon as she gets out. Remember to check their ears often and smell them for any infections. If it smells like rotten cheese, there is probably an infection going on and it needs to be cleaned.

If you have schnauzers pictures, please post them on the Schnauzer Forums.

Schnauzer Mixes | Which Schnauzer Mix Is Right For You?

Schnauzer mixes have been all the rage lately with the trend stemming from socialites and their toy dog breeds. There are a few schnauzer mixes that are available right now, of course none of them being purebred breeds.

In fact, these hybrid dogs or also known as designer dogs, are probably not bred from purebreds to create the schnauzer mix. What is done is called a multi-generational cross breeding process that is used to engineer these schnauzer mixes. They will take a mix of a mix from across generations to create the schnauzer mix. So in other words, your schnauzer mix is not a mix of 2 purebred breeds, but of 2 mixes of each of those 2 breeds.

Here are the top schnauzer mixes starting from the most popular schnauzer mix to the least. (Click the links below to learn more about the Schnauzer Mix)

Mauzer
Schnauzer Mixed with Maltese

This is the most popular schnauzer mix because of the reasons why people like schnauzers and Maltese. Mauzers are small and compact but has the intelligence of a schnauzer. This schnauzer mix will remain the most popular because of the popularity of the Maltese.

Schnauzer Mixed with Poodle

You may have heard of a schnoodle before because it is one of the most popular schnauzer mixes. It is a cross between a mini schnauzer and a poodle. This gives a schnauzer mix which is really cute and encompasses a lot of the traits of a schnauzer.

Schnorkie
Schnauzer Mixed with Yorkie

Schnorkies are a close second/third in popularity because of their size. With the increasing demand for small toy like breeds, more and more people are flocking to get a schnorkie because it is basically a toy schnauzer. Because the naturally small size of the Yorkie, it makes this schnauzer mix very small and up to 11 pounds.

Schnauzeranian
Schnauzer Mixed with Pomeranian

This schnauzer mix is not as popular but is still on the market today. It takes the Pomeranian which is pretty popular and combines it with a schnauzer to create this unique schnauzer mix. With the mini schnauzer in the top 20 most popular breeds, it is no wonder people like to mix it with their small breeds.

Schnug
Schnauzer Mixed with Pug

Schnauzer Mix with Yorkie | Schnorkie

The Schnorkie is a schnauzer mix with a Yorkie. These are not purebred and most likely are bred using multi-generation crossing of Schnauzer mixes and Yorkies. The Yorkshire terrier and Mini Schnuazer make a good mix because they are both terrier. Just like the schnauzer, Schnorkies are very smart, and have a high energy level.

They can be very loving and clever. Schnorkies also do not shed which most likely come from the schnauzer mix. They will do well indoors, but be sure to walk them daily so they can get exercise and this helps them expel energy. By doing well, they will be easier to train. Schnorkies grow to be anywhere from 7 pounds to 12 pounds and are rather small. Their height can range from 8 inches to 11 inches because Yorkies are small to begin with. The Schnorkie pictured is a puppy but will not grow any larger than that size because of the naturally small size of Yorkshire terriers.

Schnauzer Mix with a Pug | Schnug

A Schnug or also known as a Shnug is a schnauzer mix with a pug. Because pugs and schnauzers are both great with kids, you can expect your schnauzer mix or Schnug to also be excellent with children. This hybrid schnauzer mix has the features of a pug, but resembles the scruffy face of a schnauzer. One thing to be careful with these designer mixes is that you oftentimes will not get a purebred schnauzer mixed with a purebred pug. What is done more often is that what breeders do is use multi-generation crosses to breed these mixes. They will use a schnauzer mix and a pug from a generation before and mix it with another schnauzer mix and pug to create the Schnug.
