A 'Wowzer' or a 'Schnoxy'?

See this handsome fellow we met at Hazlehead Park last weekend.

His owners told Gail he was 'just a mix' of schnauzer and wire-haired fox terrier.

Would you like to be called 'just a mix?'

I'm sure that labradoodles and cockerpoos do not consider themselves 'just a mix'.

Gail thought perhaps our friend here could be called a 'schnoxy'.

Myself, I prefer 'wauzer' (pronounced 'wowzer' ) as having greater impact.

Do you have any suggestions?
 
PS Can you believe Gail said some folk might think the WFT temperament needs a bit of diluting!!??

  1. Bertie,

    In my very southern part of the world you don't want to be known as a wowser (or wowzer) as they are no fun at all! How about calling your new friend as a "Schnerrier"?

    Woofs,
    Riley

    1. The interesting things one learns through blogging! Just googled 'wowser' and no dog that is all or part fox terrier could be so described!
      Cheers, Gail.

  3. Schnerrier? A friend wants to breed a Bull Terrier with a Shitzu so he can have a Bull Shitz.

    Roxy prefers unique to 'just a mix'.

    Well, gone are the days when mixed breed dogs were simply mongrels; puppy mills and allergies have a lot to answer for in terms of the mix'n'matching.... Down Under, to call someone a 'mongrel' is to suggest they are a bit wild and undisciplined... Wonder if he is 'schnozzier' than you are? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. We had a little dog who was a cross between a Lhasa Apso and poodle we called her a lhasapoo. She then got together with a Labrador and had one puppy - I called him handsome my mum said ugly!!!!! Poor dog he was fun though.

  8. Gail's right Bertie. Some people might think a WFT temperament needs a bit of diluting but they'd be very wrong, aye?? Wires are perfect just as they are!! Different but perfect. I like Schnoxy myself. No WFT could be considered a wauser .... not even a mixed up one. That bloke sure looks happy and he is very handsome, aye??

  9. Wauzer, for sure for sure. However, having had both (schnauzers and wfts) the muzzer says "Not sure what that cross would be diluting, except maybe common sense." He sure is a handsome fella and looks like fun on four feet.

  18. I think you should call him a 'schnoxy". Urban slang for wowzer means Expression of wonderment or
    Expresssion of bewilderment. I think he is a mighty fine specimen of a dog.
    Thanks for being a friend
