Miniature Border Schnollie Breed Appearance
The Miniature Border Schmollie is a newer hybrid which results from the breeding of Border Collie with a Miniature Schnauzer and, as such, can take on any or all of the appearance traits of one or both of the parent breeds. Your full-grown hybrid will stand between 12 and 23 inches tall and weigh in from 13 to 45 pounds with males being slightly taller and heavier than females. The body could be squarely built, small and sturdy or medium-sized and athletically built, with a rectangular strong and blunt muzzle or strong and slightly tapered muzzle similar in length to the tapered head, a nose which is solid black or a color that closely matches the color of the coat, ears which are set high on the head, v-shaped carried erect or partially or fully dropped and a tail that is either low set or high set and of varying lengths. The eyes could be deep-set and dark, making them look grouchy sometimes or they could be any color depending on the coat color and the two eyes could be different colors. The coat could be wiry, rough or smooth with a thick undercoat and could come in virtually any color. Colors you might see in your pet are: solid black, solid white, salt and pepper, black or silver, solid, bi-color, tricolor or merle consisting of black, brown, red, tan, fawn or white. Your hybrid will likely inherit the scissors bite from both parent breeds. Your pet's feet could be oval and compact or round and cat-like with arched toes.
