Schnoodle Hair Types and Coloring

Schnoodle Hair Types and Coloring

Hair Types

A Schnoodle could have a variety of hair types. Since a poodle has soft, curly hair and a schnauzer has straight, wiry hair, a Schnoodle could have a little of both.

Rodney had relatively soft hair, mostly straight, except the hair on his rear end was mostly curly.

Toby has mostly straight hair with a curly area on his chest and head, wiry on his back and soft everywhere else.

Hair Coloring

The coloring of a Schnoodle could vary widely considering the many different colors of Schnauzers and Poodles. Schnauzers can be salt & pepper, black, white or black & silver. Poodles can be ever color imaginable (i.e. black, blue, silver, gray, cream, tan, etc.).

Rodney was mostly tan with hints of black. Toby is black with red and tan highlights and white patches on his chest and chin.

A good thing to keep in mind if your Schnoodle is a dark color...they get very hot in the sun! We have to keep an eye on Toby when we take him for walks so he doesn't get heat stroke. For more information on this topic, check out the Dog Breed Info Site for hair types and coloring
