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)
