Theadore (aka Teddy) the Mauzer at 14 months old—"He comes from a purebred Maltese mom and a purebred Min. Schnauzer dad (I know the breeder and their dogs). Teddy has the Min. Schnauzer type of coat, is non-shedding, and has a wonderful, friendly, yet protective temperament. He is absolutely incredible with my 14-month-old granddaughter, as well as the younger children. He's very quick to learn, but can sulk if he's not getting what he considers his "share" of attention. Training him is a snap, as he wants to please. His one real "quirk" is that he's got a dreadful under-bite, but to me it just adds to his appeal."
The Mauzer is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Miniature Schnauzer and the Maltese. 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.

Miniature Schnauzer / Maltese hybrid (Mauzer)— "This is my best four-legged friend. His name is Maxi (Sir) and he is four months old. Weight: 7 pounds, has a beautiful temperament, loves to chase a ball, eats very well and does not beg for food he is not supposed to eat. Does not shed and he is just a marvelous pet to own and love."
