The best places to adopt schnoodle dogs are dog breeder directories, pet shops, online puppy finders and dog-for-sale ads, according to SchnoodleDog.com. The site also links to a few schnoodle breeders.
If adopting a puppy from a breeder or pet shop, ensure that they are not sourced from a puppy mill, says SchnoodleDog.com. Also check that the puppy comes with a warranty for its health in the period just after adoption.
Schnoodles can be adopted from Smeraglia's Teddybear Schoodles. To adopt a schnoodle from this breeder, potential owners should research the breed, decide on a color, sex and size and consider training goals. Puppies will spend time in a training school prior to adoption if desired. After research, the next step is to apply for a schnoodle and submit a deposit. The application is used to match a puppy with adopters. There may be a 4- to 6-month wait for puppies. Photos of puppies are posted on the members' section of the website. Potential adopters are given a first and second choice of puppy based on the photos and descriptions. The balance for payment is due when the puppies are 4 weeks old and they are allocated for adoption at 7 weeks old.
