Description

The Mini Wauzer is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Miniature Schnauzer and the Westie. 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.

Emi the dark brindle Wauzer at 6 months old—"I think she favors the Schnauzer side. Her beard is very noticeable, but can't tell if its going to be like a full beard as I've seen on full Schnauzers. the hair on her legs is very obviously growing much longer now also. She's a very energetic, loving , smart dog. She is brindle in color. In pictures the brindle doesn't show up much. In her puppy picture she looks much blacker, in this shot the brindling shows up much better. At 6 months old she weighed 10 pounds."
