Schnauzer Mixes 1

Print Email

Category: Uncategorised

The following list is reference to help identify a schnauzer- mix, mutt, crossbred, "hybrid " in a shelter.

 

* To be terribly honest the entire time i'm photo shopping , editing and writing this I'm screaming in the back of my head. Because I DO volunteer at my local shelter, and I walk these poor sweet things that were bred just for a cute name that end up in my shelter when the puppy cute wears off, or they turn out to not be  as "hypo-allergenic" as the breeder claimed. So doing this research is actually rather painful. The dogs at our shelter get lots of hands on and training by the staff, most know basic commands before they go home, they are spayed/neutered, vetted ,have their shots, and are pre-loved by the staff and volunteers.

 

 

 

You can find wonderful mutts at shelters any day, they all need homes!!

Please adopt from a shelter before further encouraging this dubious dog trade.  *  

The reason for this page  is so that you can better understand the possible health problems or behavior traits you may come up against when dealing with a mixed breed dog.

Although a "Designer" or "Cutsie-Name" breeder will spew forth tons of information on "hybrid -vigor" and claim all the ethereal positives the mix may bring, while ignoring any facts about the health of the parents they have actually bred together..

A fairly common pitch is:

"oh, well schnauzers , can get skin bumps  and have a high sensitivity to greasy fatty foods, ,but beagles  are generally  healthy dogs , so what your getting is a great non-shedding dog with the all the best  of both breeds and none of the bad stuff...."

The fact is when you take two dogs of different breeds you have no control over what characteristics the puppy's will take.

For reference this is a genetic disease chart broken down by breed from dogbiz.

Guide to Hereditary and Congenital Diseases in Dogs

In the following "Mutt" chart I've done my best to illistrate this by placeing several pictures of the same mix next to each other.

For example the Schnauzer  Chihuahua  mix can look like anything from a  Chihuahua  to a schnauzer.

All the dogs pictured  below are  Chihuahua x schnauzer mixes 

 

Chihuahuas come in two coat types long and short, a mix can inherent  a short coat , or a silky and long coat or be rough like a schnauzer.  If the puppy inherits it's coat type from the Chihuahua parent it may very well be a shedding dog. 

This is also important information for any owner to be be able to monitor the health of there pets and although it is still a crap-shoot, on what may actually occur with any mixed breed , it's best to prepare as best as possible.

The following is a chart of the various "hybrid " dog registries and what dogs and the fancy designer names they register them under. What makes this list even more mind boggling is mixes, sometimes multiple of the same mix, have several different names occasionally in the same "club". The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is the registry only exists to give mutt breeders papers so they can attempt to look legitimate to the poor saps who buy the sales pitch. This list can also serve as buyer beware to someone who is looking for a new show dog or even a pet.
