Welcome to Our Puppy Blog!

Welcome to our blog! I am a small hobby breeder of Schnoodle puppies. My Schnoodles are a cross of the White Schnauzer with a Red Poodle. These dogs do not shed, are great for allergy sufferers, are friendly and easily trained.

We have 3 breeding females and sell our puppies face to face as required by APHIS rules for hobby breeders.


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

We sell our puppies through our Priority Waiting list. We do not post them on the blog for purchase. If you wish to buy a puppy, you may email for more information. I get a lot of emails about the Schnoodles so I ask for your patience with the response.

Update: I have a litter coming in May. I am taking names of people now. I also expect to breed another female for a Fall litter. Contact me at www.growing.puppies@gmail.com for more info.

Size of pups as adults

At 6 days old this pup weighs 12.3 oz. on my digital postal scale.
Most of my families are looking for Miniature Schnoodle sizes and I want to tell you, that from what the puppies are weighing at that present time, they  look to be Miniature size.  The father is a toy poodle, so I was concerned that toy size was a possibility, however, none of the Schnoodles are indicating that type of size at the present time.
This scale has a 5 lb weigh limit but is very accurate.

The puppies all range in weight from 8 oz to 10 oz.  The toy puppy is less than 10 lbs and generally is born at 6 to 6.5 oz. at birth.  The attached link, shows a weight chart that is a good indicator of the toy poodle size at various ages.

Toy poodle weight chart

The Schnoodle is different from a Poodle and generally any Schnoodle under 13 lbs is considered a toy, but this chart does not cover these higher weights.

I will be continuing to weigh the puppies to get a good idea of their health,and we will do our best to estimate sizes.  To do this we  weigh the puppy at 6 weeks of age.  We double this weight and then double it again.  (ex...6 week old puppy weighs 4 pound = 8 + 8= 16 pound adult.)

Another way to estimate the adult size of a puppy is useful for families with older puppies. Many believe that a puppy will reach 50% of its expected size at the age of 4 months. To estimate the size multiply the 4 month old's height by 2 and length by 2. This, it is believed, is quite likely to be your dog's growth potential.

TOY SCHNOODLE
Height at the shoulder: 20-30 cm (8-12 in)
Weight: 3-6 kg (6-13 lb)

MINIATURE SCHNOODLE
Height at the shoulder: 30-40 cm (12-16 in)
Weight: 6-12 kg (13-26 lb)
The newborns are about the size of a teacup.
