About the Wauzer
The Wauzer is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Miniature Schnauzer and the West Highland White Terrier. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Wauzer is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

The Wauzer's color can be similar to the Westie or Schnauzer. The coat has a dense under coat and long wire hair. The breed is considered non-shedding. Ears can either flop over like the Schnauzer or stand up like the Westie.
The Wauzer is a high energy breed. It's quick to play but also enjoys extended naps.
Some may be prone to poor dental health.
This breed is non shedding, however, their long coat can tangle. Daily brushing is recommended. The hair around the eyes may clump and may need to be cleaned often.
This breed is low-shedding as apposed to non-shedding like the Miniature Schnauzer. Wauzers have a tendency to mat particularly under the stomach and legs. They need to be clipped or pulled approximately every 8 weeks to maintain a 'well-groomed' appearance.
This small breed is comfortable in an apartment but will enjoy a large yard. Daily leash walks are advised. The Wauzer can be protective and will alert at people approaching the home so keep in mind for apartment living.
