Sniffon Build Information

The amusingly named Sniffon is a charming cross between a Miniature Schnauzer and a Brussels Griffon. Only 7 – 15 lbs., these are lively and happy companion dogs who are very trainable but still require a medium amount of exercise to keep them content. The Sniffon comes in cream color, sometimes combined with tan, brown or red-brown. They require regular brushing and grooming, and benefit from a milder shampoo when bathed. Sniffons tend to be barkers, but because they are so easily trained, this behavior can be corrected.
