Is the Miniature Schnauzer / Poodle (Miniature) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Schnoodle

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Miniature Schnauzer / Miniature Poodle is a cross between a pure Miniature Schnauzer and a pure Miniature Poodle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Many Schnoodles, as they're called, are mixes created by using Toy Poodles instead, but you can certainly encounter Schnoodles with a Miniature parent. The Mini Schnauzer/ Toy Poodle cross is probably one of the most popular designer dogs out there, but the slightly larger Mini Schnauzer / Mini Poodle is still a great apartment size and a great family pet.

Appearance / health:
This Schnoodle will likely be a little larger than Schnoodles with a Toy Poodle parent. As with all mixed breeds, you are not guaranteed a certain "look."

Behavior / temperament:
Schnoodles will vary in temperament like any other mixed-breed dog. The Schnauzer side can bring some attitude, and the Poodle can be intuitive and even sensitive to stress in the home. Be open to the possibility that your dog is an individual, and be ready to respond with the appropriate level of kind and consistent training. These dogs tend to want to be the center of attention, so don't shove them aside and forget to make them part of the family after the excitement of owning this cutie has worn off.
