Known for their fluffy, curly coat and friendly face, the Schnoodle is a cross of the schnauzer and poodle breeds. These dogs can be either standard or miniature size, which means there are a large weight and height range. If standard-size parents are used, these dogs can weigh up to 75 pounds, but most Schnoodles are bred as miniatures, coming in at 10 to 20 pounds and just 10 to 12 inches tall. Their coats are smooth and soft and don’t shed, which is a big plus for some families, but they do need regular clipping to avoid getting mats. Colors can range from black and white to tan and brown, but the most popular variations are salt and pepper and all black.
Both schnauzers and poodles are dogs that need their owners around a lot, and the Schnoodle is no different. These dogs don’t do well when left home alone frequently and are happiest when someone is around for regular attention and affection. They make excellent family dogs where someone works from home or as a companion pup to an elderly person. These dogs are smart and playful and are generally up for whatever their owners want to do. They do have a moderate energy level that requires a daily walk or a long game of fetch in a fenced-in yard.
