Friendliness: When it comes to other dogs or animals they tend to be quite friendly as long as they have been properly socialized from an early age; however they may not always get along with larger dogs due to their small size so it’s important that you introduce them slowly if you plan on having multiple pets in your home!

The Schnoodle is a hybrid dog breed that is a cross between the Poodle and the Schnauzer. The breed originated in the United States in the 1980s. The Schnoodle was bred to be a hypoallergenic dog breed that would not shed. The Schnoodle is a popular choice for people with allergies to dogs.

The Schnoodle was almost extinct in the early 2000s. The breed became popular again in the 2010s. The ancestry of the Schnoodle is unknown. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club.

The Schnoodle is a cross between the Poodle and the Schnauzer. The breed originated in America in the 1980’s as people were looking for a hypoallergenic dog that did not shed its hair. This made them ideal for people who were allergic to dogs but wanted to own one anyway. Unfortunately, by early 2000’s, their popularity had waned and they were close to becoming extinct until they had a resurgence in popularity in 2010’s.

Schnoodles are recognized by both major kennel clubs in America: The American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC). In order to be recognized by either of these organizations, a certain number of these dogs must be registered with them every year and there must be an active breeding population of them within North America.

The ancestry of most hybrid or “designer” dogs is often unknown as their origins are usually many generations back and difficult to trace but we do know that the Schnoodle’s parents are the Poodle and Schnauzer. Beyond that, there isn’t much else known about this particular dog’s history except that they were bred specifically for people with allergies who still wanted to own a dog companion without all of the sneezing fits!
