The Miniature Schnoxie is a loving, loyal and curious little hybrid that will tag along with their owners wherever they go. Due to their pleasing nature, these hybrids can be quite easy to train. However, some Schnoxies can be quite stubborn and strong-willed. They will need a firm owner who will set boundaries and house rules.
Schnoxies can make great companions for families with children and other pets but it is never a good idea to leave any dog unsupervised with another pet or a child. When encountering a stranger, your Schnoxie may bark and be very cautious. Schnoxie's don't have an aggressive bark, their barks are meant to warn their owners, however, as these dogs can be quite vocal, they may not be suited to apartment or urban lifestyle.
The Miniature Schnoxie is a designer breed that is most likely to have only emerged within the last decade. As the hybrid is still considered a new breed, not much information is available out there regarding his purpose and creation. However, the Miniature Schnoxie is currently recognised by the American Canine Hybrid Club, the Designer Breed Registry, Designer Dogs Kennel Club, Dog Registry of America and the International Designer Canine Registry.
