    Bowzer - Information on the Dog Breed, Breeders, Puppies and Temperament of Bowzer Dog


    If you are planning to get yourself a designer dog, you might consider the Bowzer dog breed.



    A Bowzer is a medium sized, hybrid dog that has been created by cross breading purebred Basset Hound with thoroughbred Miniature Schauzer breeds.

    Bowzer Dogs


    Bowzer dogs are certified by the International Designer Canine Registry (IDCR) as a genuine hybrid. This dog breed has also been recognized by the Designer Dogs Kennel Club (DDKC) and in the US by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC) and Dog Registry of America, Inc.



    (DRA).

    A hybrid dog is not full-blooded, but a mix of two dogs with a strong lineage.

    Bowzer Puppies and Temperament


    Bowzer puppies look a lot like their mother, the Basset Hound and are not usually as hairy as the Miniature Schauzer. Like its mother, the Basset Hound, the Bowzer is a short and heavy dog.



    It has a deep and heavy muzzle which tapers at the top.  

    In terms of temperament, the Bozwer is a blend of the distinctive traits found in either of their purebred parents. Unlike purebred dogs, the character of hybrids differs with each litter and you can get a combination of the traits of both lineages.

    The Basset Hound is a gentle, friendly dog that fits well into the family. They have a very keen sense of smell and are very playful. While they are affectionate and obedient, they can also be stubborn.

    The Miniature Schauzer is a clever and energetic dog who is very child friendly. They make good watch-dogs but owners need to be firm and socialize them well.

    Bowzer Breeders


    There are differing opinions about the relative advantages of the Bowzer dog breed. While some Bowzer breeders maintain that it is healthier to mix breeds and get a wider gene pool, others say that this could strengthen genetic defects.

    If you are interested in breeding dogs, you need to keep in mind that while crossing two pure pedigrees, the mother should be the bigger among the two. This ensures better litter quality and fewer complications while giving birth.

    Bowzer breeders do not only cross breed purebreds, but also breed multi-generation crosses. For instance, a cross between a first generation Bowzer and a thoroughbred Baset hound are considered F1B Bowzers, which is a 25% to 75% mix. While a F1 Bowzer with a 50 percent to 50 percent mix is bred by crossing a purebred Basset Hound with a purebred Miniature Schauzer. Breeding Bowzers is most prevalent in Europe and the US.

    You can also import Bowzer puppies from overseas. Usually a designer Bowzer puppy will cost around 900 GBP, depending on its grade.
