Schnoodle HISTORY

It is believed that a dog with Schnoodle heritage was first created in England and known as
the Truffle Dogs. It is believed that Toy Poodles were crossed with small dogs from the Terrier
family to create this new dog. These dogs specialized in hunting Truffles. Truffles were very
valuable and gathering them often required tresspassing on others land and thus was done
at night. These dogs were very helpful in locating the Truffles in the dark of the night.

The first known crossing of the Poodle and the Schnauzer in America was in the 1980s. It is
believed that this first occurance of purposeful cross-breeding, to create a Schnoodle, was
done in Minnesota.

While in England, Schnoodles or Schnoodle-like dogs may have been bred in the past to create
dogs to help gather Truffles, but in America the modern day Schnoodle is bred purely as a
companion dog.

The Schnoodle
is very loyal to his family, affectionate, extremely intelligent, easily trained, clever, friendly, fun loving, with plenty of personality! They are good with children and get along fine with other animals. They are great watchdogs because they will let you know when someone is near, but they are non-aggressive. They love car rides. This great companion dog also can make an excellent therapy dog, but above all else they are a loyal and loving companion! They would be fine in an apartment or on a farm, as long as they are with their family. These dogs are so loyal and affectionate they would not be happy kept outdoors.

Schnoodle Temperament:
Schnoodles are a mix of personalities from the Schnauzer and Poodle. Like the Schnauzer,
they are alert and playful. Like the Poodle, they are highly intelligent, and well-tempered.
The combination of the two produces an easily trainable, energetic and friendly mix.
