Chizer

Chihuahua / Miniature Schnauzer Hybrid Dogs

Information and Pictures

Kiki the Chihuahua / Schnauzer mix at 1 and a half years old—We found Kiki at a flea market, and thought she was a very unusual hybrid but so cute. We automatically fell in love with her. She was only about six weeks old when we got her. She had markings like a Rottweiler. Eventually as she grew her hair got longer and turned Schnauzer grey. She is almost 2 years old and we couldn't imagine life without her! She has the best little personality. She shares both Chihuahua and Schnauzer traits. Protective like a Chihuahua, and has the Schnauzer bark and energy. She knows how to sit, stay, speak, lay, "go get bubba" (her Pug brother), among other commands. Never knew this was a popular hybrid, and they're considered "Chizers"! We're actually wanting another one!"

Other Names

Schnauchi

Description

The Chizer is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chihuahua and the Miniature Schnauzer. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

She will stay by my side whenever I'm laying down and especially when I'm sick. Coco loves to fetch and chase after squirrels. Her short legs take her very far, believe it or not."

Honey the Chizer is laying on white and green blankets on a black leather couch

"This is Honey the Chizer at one year old. She is Miniature Schnauzer and Chihuahua. Honey is a slight bit bigger than a Chihuahua and has medium length hair that is coarse. Honey is very loving and will cuddle for hours if you let her. She loves chasing my cats and hopes they will chase her back...one does and she loves it! Honey is great around kids and snuggles up with them all the time. She loves to play catch me if you can! She is very fast. Honey is protective and not easily trusting to strangers. She needs time to get used to new people but does. She is smart and will sit, stay, speak, come and lie down. I cannot imagine life without my Honey!"
