Judging the expected size of a crossbreed is always a challenge so we thought we’d list the standard Snorkie full-grown weight, height, and additional factors. Hopefully, this will help you know what to expect from your Schnauzer Yorkie mix as it’s growing up. This is crucial as it will help you judge whether your pup is growing well.
You want an adolescent pup to neither be overweight nor malnourished. And as that can be difficult to assess sometimes, we’ve added height and weight growth charts below too. Some deviation from the norms is always to be expected, of course. But if your Snorkie is too far above or below the averages you may want to contact your vet.
What’s The Standard Snorkie Full-Grown Size?
For an adult Snorkie, you can expect an average of 12 inches (31.5 cm) height for a male and 11 inches (28 cm) for a female. As for weight, the average is 12 lbs (5.4 kg) for male Snorkies and 11 lbs (5 kg) for female ones.
A pound or two over or under usually isn’t a problem. However, if your adult Snorkie starts going considerably above the 11-12 pound limit you may be overfeeding your dog. Alternatively, you may be giving your pup adequate meals but from overly fatty food. Or, you likely just need to exercise your dog more.
If your dog is too far below the average weight, however, this may be a symptom of malnourishment. We’ll cover some possible health causes for that below.

Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Weight Chart
|Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Age||Male Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Weight||Female Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Weight|
|1 month||Less than 2.2 lbs (< 1 kg)||Less than 2 lbs (< 0.9 kg)|
|2 months||3 to 4 (1.3 to 1.8 kg)||2 to 3 lbs (0.9 to 1.3 kg)|
|3 months||5 to 6 lbs (2.25 to 2.7 kg)||4 to 5 lbs (1.8 to 2.25 kg)|
|5 months||7 to 8 lbs (3 to 3.6 kg)||6 to 7 lbs (2.7 to 3 kg)|
|7 months||8 to 9 lbs (3.6 to 4 kg)||7 to 8 lbs (3 to 3.6 kg)|
|9 months||10 to 11 lbs (4.5 to 5 kg)||9 to 10 lbs (4 to 4.5 kg)|
|11 months||12 lbs (5.4 kg)||11 lbs (5 kg)|
As you can see, your Snorkie can vary quite a bit in weight as it grows up. In fact, it’s possible that those averages can be even looser as this is a mixed breed. If your Snorkie takes more from its Schnauzer parent, it’s normal for the pup to be bigger and heavier. You’d still do well to talk with your vet, however, as they’ll know your dog personally and they’ll know what to expect.
Schnorkie Adult and Growing Height Chart
|Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Age||Male Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Height||Female Schnauzer Yorkie Mix Height|
|3 months||4 to 5 in (10 to 12.7 cm)||3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm)|
|5 months||6 to 8 in (15.25 to 20 cm)||5 to 7 inches (12.7 to 18 cm)|
|7 months||7 to 10 in (18 to 25.4 cm)||6 to 9 inches (15.25 to 23 cm)|
|9 months||11 to 12 in (28 to 31.5 cm)||10 to 11 inches (25.4 to 28 cm)|
|11 months||11 to 12 in (28 to 31.5 cm)||10 to 11 inches (25.4 to 28 cm)|
Some might argue that the height chart is less valuable than the weight chart. Height is a matter of genetics after all. The purpose of the height chart, however, is to inform the weight chart. If your Snorkie is shorter than average and yet it’s on the upper end of the weight chart – it’s likely overweight.
When Do Schnorkie Dogs Stop Growing?
Most of the time, a Snorkie will reach its full height and weight around its 9th month or sooner. However, it’s possible for a Snorkie to grow a bit more after that, especially in weight. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing if your Snorkie is just “filling up”.
However, if the dog is actively getting overweight, you may want to change its diet or exercise routine.
Health Factors That Can Affect Your Snorkie Full-Grown Progression and Size
If your Snorkie is straying a bit too much from the growth chart, it’s important not to panic and overreact immediately. Remember that this is a mixed breed – it’s normal for its exact height and weight to be a bit uncertain.
Still, if the deviation from the norm is too significant, there are several possible common causes:
- Too much weight may be caused by overeating, not getting enough exercise or a sudden hormonal shift.
- A lower than average weight may be the result of too much stress, separation anxiety, depression, intestinal worms, and other parasites, or other health problems.
The latter is usually much more significant than the former. If your pup is becoming overweight, that’s rarely caused by other illnesses but may cause such problems instead. With underweight pups, it’s usually the opposite and that makes contacting a vet even more urgent.
How Can You Weigh Your Snorkie?
An easy way to go about this is to first weigh yourself. Then, just pick up your little pup and measure your combined weight. From there, it’s just a matter of subtracting the first number from the second and you’ll get your Snorkie’s accurate weight.
How To Maintain The Optimal Snorkie Full-grown Weight?
To make sure that your Snorkie is as healthy as possible you’ll need to make sure that you feed and exercise your pup properly. And, of course, never skip the routine vet visits even if your dog looks healthy at first glance.
Aside from that, if you’ve got a healthy pup from the breeder, you shouldn’t encounter any major difficulties. Remember that some deviation from the growth chart is always to be expected as no two pups are the same as they grow up.
