Ellie the Schnauzer-Poodle Mix Visited us in North Highlands

Here in North Highlands we have we have a dog which has to be called a Schnoodle (if not a Pauzer.) Ellie is a designer dog composed of a Schnauzer and Poodle hence the name ‘Schnoodle’. When, less commonly, the parentage is a Standard Poodle and a Giant Schnauzer the resultant pup is called a Giant Schnoodle and can be up to 70 lbs. We can expect this sort of cross to be fairly active, smart, possibly quite noisy (that’s the Schnauzer part) and to have long hair which does not shed. Both the Poodle and the Schnauzer breed are highly interactive with their humans and so it is not hard to see why this cross might be quite appealing and rewarding to live with. The only caution might be that these busy and relatively active dogs may do poorly when left to their own and it would not be surprising that without enough interaction and activity they could become a destructive nuisance around the house. But then, all pets deserve adequate ‘quality time’ with their humans and in dog terms, ‘quality’ means training and play! – Geoffrey Antipa
