A Schnoodle is a cross between a Schnauzer and a Poodle. Schnoodle is a portmanteau combining the two breed names.
The appeal of Schnoodle is that they generally have the Poodle’s willingness to please mixed with the sturdiness and activity of the Schnauzer.
Schnoodles may possess the rough hair and strong body shape of the schnauzer, or the thinner shape and the curly hair of the poodle, or any combination of these characteristics.
The schnauzer can be affectionate, naturally protective, intelligent and strong-willed; the poodle is often clever, active, and excels in obedience training.
