It is a first generation cross and has to have one purebred poodle and one purebred Schnauzer, as it parents. The Schnauzer is a breed from Germany, that has a trademark of furry muzzle. While Poodles come in four sizes: standard, medium, miniature, and toy, Schnauzers come in three sizes: standard, giant, and miniature. This breed is achieved from the cross breeding of smaller sized dogs, of both species. The size, a Schnoodle will grow to, will depend on the size of its parents, the average being 7 to16 pounds.

Schnoodle Breed Information: How to groom a Schnoodle
Peter Dobias, DVM has 30 years of experience as a veterinarian.

There is a general misperception that a dog's anal glands should be manually emptied on a regular basis. In fact, expressing the glands too often may lead to decreased tone, delayed emptying and anal gland disease. Most vets learn about anal glands in vet school, but I had the pleasure of learning about that particular part of canine anatomy much earlier in life from our family dog - a dachshund Gerda. Dachshunds are obsessed with being in the forest and Gerda was no exception.
Schnoodle Breed Information
As poodles, some schnoodles will develop a multitude of in-the-ear hair. This needs that they are removed by a vet as well as groomer to circumvent fairly lingering ear attacks that result. For instance both poodle and schnauzer, the schnoodle may require expression from the anal glands a couple times per year; a vet or groomer is able to doing this service. It is also advisable to completely clean the release from under a schnoodle's eyes and therefore minimize tear-staining, particularly on animals with a white coat.
