The Scoodle is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Scottish Terrier and the Poodle.
These mixed dogs are playing a role in the current designer dog trend and all the Poodle hybrids have become very popular in the past few years.
The Hypoallergenic qualities of the poodle are one reason for crosses. And also because of the Poodle's non-shedding coat.
Hybrid Dogs are not been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club But they are recognized by the following Clubs and these are their specific recognized names.
American Canine Hybrid Club ..............
International Designer Canine Registry.....
Designer Dogs Kennel Club..................Scottish Shoodle
Cute Little Scotish Terrier Poodle Mix
• Breed Group: Hybrid (A Poodle and Scottish Terrier Hybrid)
• Adult Weight: Around 9-15 Pounds- 4 to 7 Kilos.
• The breed has short limbs and is generally small.
• Energy Level: High
Being a hybrid breed, they are likely to end up with traits from both parent breeds.
These mixed breeds dogs have become popular because they combine the outgoing, loving and gentle personality and stable and steady -going of the Scottish Terrier with the low-shedding, low-dander qualities of the poodle.
Also contribute with the intelligence and the tendency to be very active, resulting in a very loving, energetic, intelligent, and agile dog.
Can be aggressive with other pets, not with people ; But with a good training can be minimize thanks to the crossing with the poodle temperament.
They needs lots of exercise. They can get plenty of exercise with indoor games and toys, but love outdoor walks or trips to the doggie park.
These mixed breeds really loves to be near their owners all the time and they can get little stressed if they left alone for long periods of time.
Typically will show the curly Poodle coat.
The coat is either short and wiry or medium in length and should be brushed regularly to keep it clean and tangle-free.
They should be bathed when needed.
Scoodles are fairly easy to train.
Be Consistent by correcting your hybrid dog every time it does something wrong and praise him every time he does something right.
My recommendation for all kind of dogs breeds:
You should be trained with a soft and gentle hand without harsh tones or tactics and lots of positive reinforcement like food treats and most important issue is start training as early as possible if you want to have an happy life with your cute companion.
Like all the Mixed and cross breeds , veterinarians and breeders suggest that you ask about the dog’s risk for patellar luxation, liver shunts, hypoglycemia, pancreatitis and lymphangiactasia. But typically though, hybrid breeds are less vulnerable to breed-specific or genetic health issues.
Very Important Tip
Before making a purchase talk to the breeder, ask them many questions about their dogs and the breed in general. A good breeder will teach you about the Scoodle and they will have many questions for you about your home and life style and if this breed is suited for you and your family.."
"The best you do at the very beginning the easier your life is going to be."
