About the Snorkie
The Snorkie 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 Yorkshire Terrier. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Snorkie is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.
