Mini Schnoodle Breed history

Designer breeds, or crossbreeds have become popular in the past twenty years, and there is not a lot of written history about most crossbreeds at this point in time.

Breeders often cross pure breeds in order to achieve a certain look or trait. This is a long and difficult process with widely varying results. Contrary to popular belief, crossbreeds do not necessarily inherit the “best” genes of both parents. In fact, the genes sort out randomly in dogs.

Let’s look at the history of the Poodle and Schnauzer to learn more about the Schnoodle!

History of the Poodle
Although Poodles are the national dog of France, they originated in Germany, where they were bred and used as retrieving water dogs. At that time, the Poodle’s showy haircut was practical – it allowed the poodle to move about easily while hunting while still protecting certain parts of its body, such as the paws, chest, and head.

With its elegance and intelligence, the poodle became a popular breed among the French nobles and in other parts of Europe. Because of their trainable, attention-loving nature and showy looks, poodles were often used in the circus. They have also been used for hunting truffles- underground mushrooms- with their long snouts.

The Standard Poodle was downsized to the Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle was first bred in America in the early 20th century. If they are well-bred, each breed is a replica of each other.

Today, the Miniature Poodle is the most popular Poodle size, and the three sizes together rank ninth in the breeds registered with AKC.

History of the Schnauzer

Schnauzers were originally European farm dogs, dating all the way back to the 15th century!

German farmers bred the Schnauzer down to its miniature size to catch rats in their barns. Miniature Schnauzers have Standard Schnauzer, Affenpinscher, and Poodle in their ancestry.

Miniature Schnauzers have a slightly different temperament from other terriers, since their ancestry is different. Miniature Schnauzers are known for their friendly, outgoing, and willing to please temperament.

Miniature Schnauzers were recognized by the AKC in 1926 and today they 19th out of the breeds registered with AKC.

Mini Schnoodle Average size

Since there are three sizes of Poodles and three sizes of Schnauzers, you’ll have to ask the pup’s breeder what size the parents are to determine the size of your Schnoodle puppy.

There are three sizes of Schnoodles: toy, miniature, and standard. Toy Schnoodles weigh 6-10, miniature Schnoodles weigh 13-20 pounds, and standard Schnoodles weigh 20-75 pounds.

Average Mini Schnoodle lifespan

Schnoodles usually live 10-15 years.

Mini Schnoodle body features

Schnoodles vary widely in appearance! They can inherit traits from their parents (and even grandparents!) that make them look like a Schnauzer, a poodle, or a mix of both!

The traditional Schnauzer haircut gives Schnauzers bushy eyebrows and a beard. They also have a rough, wiry terrier-type coat which is low shed. They muscular and stocky.

Poodles have short, curly coats which are also low shed. They have a long, narrow muzzle with dark eyes set far apart. Their ears are long and flat and hang close to the sides of their head.

Schnoodles can be black, blue, silver, gray, cream, apricot, red, white, brown, or café au lait, or a mix of colors.

grooming Your Mini Schnoodle Puppy

Your Schnoodle’s coat type depends on the traits they inherit from their parents. Their coat may favor the Schnauzer’s coat or the Poodle’s coat. Talk to you vet about the right kind of grooming for your Schnoodle puppy.

Both Schnauzers and Poodles need grooming, which includes a trim, every 5-8 weeks. You can take them to a professional groomer or learn to groom them yourself.

Your Schnoodle will also need its teeth brushed nails trimmed regularly.

Grooming for a Poodle-Type Coat

Many people think of the elaborate, pom-pom-like haircut (called the “Continental Clip”) when they think of poodles. However, poodles can be given regular haircuts that follow the contour of their body (called a “Sporting Clip”).

Although Poodles are known for minimal shedding, their curly coats need some extra care. They need to be groomed every 4-6 weeks and brushed regularly, or their coat will become matted and tangled.

Poodles can have weepy eyes that may stain the fur around their eye area. Use a warm, damp cloth and gently wipe your poodle’s eyes to prevent eye stains.

Grooming for a Schnauzer-Type Coat

Schnauzers, like all terriers, have a wiry top and a soft undercoat, which needs frequent brushing. A Schnauzer’s coat will also need stripped or plucked, which simply means removing the dead hair. This can be a time consuming process. The good news is they shed very little.

Typical Mini Schnoodle Allergens

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that dogs shed. 

Poodles and Schnauzers are both low-shed dogs, so Schnoodles are considered hypo-allergenic. However, each puppy has a different combination of genes, so allergens vary from dog to dog. Spending time with a puppy before adopting them is a good way to know if you are triggered by their allergens. 

If you or someone in your home has allergies, please talk to your family physician before adopting a puppy.
