Standard Border Schnollie History

The Standard Border Schnoodle is a mixed-breed hybrid dog that is the result of breeding a Standard Schnauzer and a Miniature or Toy Poodle. The Standard Border Schnoodle is a mix between the medium-sized, long-haired Standard Schnauzer and the smaller, curly-coated, toy-sized poodle. The coat of the Standard Border Schnoodle can be any color combination—including black, brown, white, gray, or silver—and can be straight or wavy. Like its parents, the temperament of the Standard Border Schnoodle is largely determined by the individual adult, though most are friendly, intelligent, and eager to please. The Standard Border Schnoodle has a number of health problems that are common to both its parent breeds, and also inherits the health concerns common to its mixed-breed status.

Standard Border Schnollie Activity Requirements

The Scottish Terriers are small, hardy, and fun-loving. They are a very friendly and outgoing dog that does well with children and other pets. Most small terrier breeds are very active and will need at least one hour per day of moderate exercise. This can include a brisk walk or a game of fetch. Scottish Terriers are usually happiest when they are given adequate exercise and attention. They can become bored and unhappy if they are left alone for long periods of time. If you live in an apartment or small home, consider getting two Scottish Terriers. That way they will be able to play together while you are gone.
