Woman asks for breed recognition for her Super Schnoodles
They’re hypoallergenic, good-natured, and “hilarious,” and now a woman from Dereham wants to give them the recognition they deserve.
These are “super schnoodles” – a cross between poodles and schnauzers – for which Pammie Richardson hopes to be recognized by the UK Kennel Club.
Ms Richardson is so in love with the breed that she has even started writing a series of children’s picture books about them, the first of which, The Silly Super Schnoodles trip to the SeaShore, has just been published.
“The breeding program has extremely high standards and all puppies must be screened for an exact set of DNA health tests and have clear annual eye certificates from the British Veterinary Association (BVA),” she said. .
“I believe in the breed so much and they make ideal pets for the following reasons: They are hypoallergenic – both parent breeds don’t shed which is unique to this Poodle cross.

“They are a very manageable size, in a very good mood and can be trained and overall exceptionally healthy.”
“The Super Schnoodles are all great characters, have their own unique personalities and are hilarious in one way or another.”
Ms Richardson grew up around animals and holds an Intermediate Instructor Certificate from the British Horse Society (BHSII). She studied at the University of East Anglia as an adult student and holds a BSc (Hons) in Cellular and Molecular Biology.
She has worked in the pharmaceutical sales industry for the past 20 years and was laid off just before Covid in early 2020.
She said: “I always thought about writing a book and my Schnoodles are such clowns and so much fun, it seemed like too good an opportunity to miss.
“I found my brilliant illustrator, Joshua Morgan, through an online site and he is able to transfer the images in my head to paper – a very rare and special trait.
“I hope to increase the notoriety and popularity of the breed, but ultimately it’s a great fun way for kids to learn to read and improve their key skills.
