I had always thought the same thing about him having poodle in him, but I haven't ever seen a schnoodle, a pretty popular breed, that looks anything like him. Just do a google images search for schnoodles. Their body structure is completely different, and they definitely don't have the erect ears. Then I saw the Kerry Blue, and I said dang, he might be a mix between a Kerry Blue and a miniature schnauzer. I think they call them miniature Kerry Blue schnauzers. Hopefully the DNA test will offer some insight. I got him when he was 6 months old. He hasn't gotten any taller, but he was scalped at the time. He had the schnauzer skirt cut, and the hair on the top of his head and back was buzzed almost to the skin. He looked totally different than now. He looks twice as big with all of his curly fur. I have a feeling he will have something like German Shepherd in him to explain those ears when I get the DNA test back. Schnauzers owners don't think he is purebred schnauzer. We went to a little German town on vacation and bumped into quite a few miniature schnauzer parents at the local dog park. They loved Mollie but dismissed him as a half-breed. We love them both equally. We are just curious about him. It's obvious what she is, but he is a bit of a mystery.
