The Schweenie is a darling mix breed puppy. As a crossbreed between the Shih Tzu and the Dachshund, the Schweenie is a small dog with a height similar to a Shih Tzu, but a relatively longer length like a Dachshund. Despite its small size, Schweenie is a strong dog characterized by broad, muscular shoulders, big dark eyes, big floppy ears, and a charming face. Its medium length coat usually has an attractive rusty hue, though it may sometimes look a bit ragged. Being smart, friendly, and loving, Schweenies are a family dog ideal for apartment life. They are eager to please their owners whom they rely upon heavily.
