The Snorkie is a popular hybrid designer breed that is also often referred to as the Schnerrier. He is a mix of a Miniature Schnauzer and a Yorkshire Terrier. He is a small dog and usually only stands 5 to 12 inches and weighs 8 to 12 pounds. He is a loving and sweet companion who bonds closely with his owner. The Snorkie makes a good family dog and is usually not overly snappy with children. However, if he gets too tired he can get moody. This energetic little dog is a happy addition to any household. His small size and his modest exercise requirements make him ideal for an apartment or a small home.

Also known as the Schnerrier, Schnorkie, and Shnorkie, this dog has only been around for about 10 years. Their exact origins are unknown, but are generally considered to be a designer dog created in the United States. There are a number of things you need to know before deciding on a Snorkie for your home, but for the most part they are a safe choice for most families. Some minor health problems are possible, but in general they can be considered to be bred specifically for being a domesticated house pet with almost none of the common problems that are present in other dogs. The more you know about the Snorkie, the better.

On the plus side, they don’t shed much and are hypoallergenic, so people who may have health problems around dogs can look into owning a Snorkie. But their wiry coat requires regular brushing and if you want to avoid long term health problems they will require you to keep up with their grooming.

Snorkies are among the easiest dogs to train as they are able to quickly learn and respond to commands. If you want to teach a dog tricks, this will be a choice high on your list.
