Snorkies are a cross of two purebred dogs, the Miniature Schnauzer and the Yorkshire Terrier. Standing only 7 – 12 inches and weighing between five and fifteen lbs., these energetic little bundles of charm are smart and easy to train; although lively, given a few walks and play breaks they make great apartment dogs.

Behaviour and Personality

They are happiest with plenty of human interaction and may get into chewing or barking patterns if left alone for lengthy periods, so the best household for a Snorkie is one where they have human companionship the majority of the time. Snorkies are hypoallergenic dogs and do not shed much, but their double coats do require regular grooming. Snorkies come in a variety of colors and combinations of silver, shit, tan, blue and black.
