Maltese Schnauzer Mix - Mauzer

AKA: Maltese Miniature Schnauzer Mix

The Maltese Schnauzer mix, or Mauzer, is a cross between a Miniature Schnauzer and a Maltese.

They are an intelligent, perky Maltese mix that is growing in popularity because of their loving and energetic personality.

Please do not purchase these dogs from a breeder. There is no need to create more mutts when plenty are available for adoption. If you discover a Maltese mix that would fit well with your family, you can easily adopt one at a Maltese Dog Rescue instead (and for a lot less money)!

Mauzer Personality

These dogs take on the temperament of both Schnauzers and Maltese. They are playful and affectionate little dogs.

  • Very alert and obedient
  • Easy to train
  • Excellent watchdog
  • Very vocal when happy or excited
  • Great with children and other dogs
  • Will sometimes chase smaller animals

Most people find Maltese Miniature Schnauzer puppies to have a spirited and friendly personality
