Is the Chihuahua / Miniature Schnauzer Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chizer

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Chizer is a cross between a pure Chihuahua and a pure Miniature Schnauzer, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an apartment-sized toy that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Chihuahua or the Miniature Schnauzer traits dominate. Luckily, all the variations are cute.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, owners report that their Chizers tend to be affectionate pets who want to spend a lot of time with their family. Some of them may not appreciate strangers, and the Chihuahua in them might encourage them to yap at your visitors if they're not properly socialized and trained.
