Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! We breed Schnoodle puppies from White Schnauzers with Red Poodles. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for small breeders.

Our next SCHNOODLE LITTER is expected in Spring 2014.
Our Waiting list is long...so I am no longer adding names for this years litters. All litter information is updated on this blog and we will make a post when the Waiting List is open again.

Our breeding dogs are from purebred Akc lines and the Schnoodle puppies are registered with ICA (the registry for Designer breed dogs.)
They will be vet checked, have their first set of shots, and be Ugodog Puppy Toilet Trained. But this is just the beginning! Read through our posts to see the special care and attention we give our litter. You will enjoy watching our Growing Puppies!.............. Growing.Puppies@yahoo.com

The Apricot Schnoodle

Here is an example of the color of our upcoming litter of Schnoodles.
Have you ever seen a red Schnauzer...the answer is no, because schnauzers only come in black, whites, and greys.  But when you mix a White Schnauzer with a Red poodle, you get a beautiful apricot color, quite uncommon in the Schnauzer world.  Few dog breeds come in this color, but poodles do!

Now all Schnoodles do not look exactly the same.  Within a single litter some may lean toward the look of the poodle, whereas others may have a little more Schnauzer look in them.  In particular, some may have curlier fur than others.  This little guy looks like he has the straighter Schnauzer fur.  But the Schnoodles in the post above, have more of the curly poodle fur.

But I should also mention, that because this is a first generation litter we have the greatest opportunity to have the  most even mix of the poodle/ schnauzer gene pool  That is why it is not acceptable to breed a Schnoodle to a Schnoodle.  The genetic balance is thrown way off and you don't know what traits will be accentuated.
Whether they favor the Poodle or the Schnauzer, they will NOT shed!

    1. I would like to answer Deanna's question more fully. Now that the our Apricot Schnoodles have reached adult age, it is interesting to note that their color has not changed or faded since they were first born.

  2. I am as interested in this question as you are. The color of the Schnoodle can lighten as the dog loses his puppy coat, but it can also darken. I believe the lightening is more common. From my experience with purebred Mini Schnauzers the biggest change comes at the first haircut, when the first puppy fur is trimmed off. But this is the first Red litter I have bred so if there is a color change as the puppies mature we will have to wait and see. The litter is now 3 1/2 months old, and their fur has not lightened from the pictures I have seen. Check back to this blog next Spring and you will see what the puppies look like at one year old.

  3. SO ADORABLE! I've always loved the color, especially from wanting a golden retriever, but the face and the size win me over.
