ABOUT THE SCHNAPSO HYBRID
Temperament of the SchnapsoThe Schnapso is a mixture of Miniature Schnauzer and Lhasa Apso. It is a low shedding, small hybrid that is outgoing, frisky, playful and has a soft coat like that of the Lhasa Apso. Some siblings within the Schnapso litter may have more of a Miniature Schnauzer appearance while other siblings have more of a Lhasa appearance.
The Schnapso does not have an over-bite or under-bite like that of the purebred Lhasa Apso, rather its bite is much straighter.
The Schnapso hybrid is a very sweet tempered dog and can be a good pet for children providing they are raised with children as a puppy. The Schnapso hybrid will bark at strangers and dogs they do not know. Schnapso hybrids are other pet friendly but can be same gender aggressive with dogs their own size, on occasion.
COAT TYPE OF THE SCHNAPSOThe Schnapso hybrid's coat can feel slightly wirey or soft depending upon which parent the hybrid takes after. If a Schnapso puppy has more Lhasa Apso DNA in its genetic structure, the coat will be fluffy and soft like that of the Lhasa Apso. If the Schnapso puppy has more Miniature Schnauzer DNA in its genetic structure, the coat will have a Miniature Schnauzer appearance and feel slightly course. There are two coat types for the Schnapso hybrid. Long haired and short haired. The Schnapso hybrid is a low shedding, low dander dog and may work out well for those with mild allergies.
SIZE OF THE SCHNAPO-The Schnapso hybrid can range from 15-25 pounds as an adult providing the one parent is a Miniature Schnauzer and not larger. On average, the Miniature Schnauzer's top weight is 25 pounds but they can be much smaller. The Schnapso should be considered as an indoor pet and not an outdoor pet.
CARE OF THE SCHNAPSO-The Schnapso hybrid is a very easy breed to care for. If their coat is short, bathing can be quick and easy. If their coat is long, brushing should be considered several times a week and keeping the coat trimmed around the eyes, anal area and feet should be considered.
The long haired Schnapso may require a bit more coat maintenence than the short haired Schnapso.
