PoodlesPoodle 1Poodles come in three sizes: Toy, Miniature and Standard. They are rated the second smartest dog in the animal kingdom. They are also known for being hypo-allergenic, non-shedding and very lovable.

Poodles are among the gentlest of dogs, and never want to disappoint you. They are real snugglers. The poodle is sensitive, intelligent, lively, playful, proud, and elegant. It bonds closely with family and makes a great companion. Poodles are very smart, obedient, and graceful, which makes them one of the most popular pets in the world. The Poodle is bouncy, alert, and usually eager to play. Poodles are more energetic than Standard Poodles, and more likely to bark.

Temperament: The poodle gets along well with other animals, other dogs, and children. It is best to socialize it as a puppy. Poodles will announce the arrival of visitors, but are generally friendly toward them. Poodles are highly adaptable and make good watchdogs. They may find their way into some mischief!

Care: Poodles should be groomed by professionals, and will require a substantial investment of time and money. Poodles which are not intended for show competitions usually have longer hair on the head, legs, and ears, and are trimmed every five to six weeks. Poodles have a long lifespan of 13-15 years.

The Poodle is susceptible to cataracts and eye problems.  Poodles which are not shaven carefully can suffer skin irritation or rashes. Poodles require frequent human companionship and should not be left to live outdoors.

Training: The poodle is highly intelligent, making training a fairly simple process. They quickly understand what is expected of them and can learn a wide variety of tricks and games. Poodles are likely to enjoy the training process. Any effort put into training the Poodle will reap large rewards.

Activity: The toy poodle requires less exercise then the standard poodle, but should be walked or allowed to play outdoors. It is well suited to most apartment life.

Size: Toy poodles weigh between 5-12 lbs. Poodles are very elegant in appearance. They have a long, narrow muzzle, slight stop (point at which the forehead meets the muzzle), dark eyes, and wide ears. Poodles have flat backs, straight, docked tails and small, oval feet. Their length is approximately the same as their height.

Coat: The poodle has a distinctive fine, frizzy, wooly coat similar in texture to sheep’s wool. Solid white is most common, but the coat may also be solid grey, brown, apricot, or black. Poodles do not shed, making them a good match for allergy sufferers, for which reason they are commonly used for crossbreeding.

    Hi, I am looking for a female black miniature poodle. My best friend Maggie (black yorkie-poo) went to rainbow bridge in January.😪 She was my companion, best friend and baby.

      I am expecting a litter of poodles any day as she is already past her due date. When people say minature they think the smallest but toy is the smallest miniature is 8-20 lb Standard the 50-80lb.
      If you are truly looking for miniature that is what I’m expecting as her puppies should be between 8-12 lbs and possibly one being 6lbs this has been how her past litter weights went.
      Feel free to call me anytime to talk about my puppies and let me know if you want me to tell you when the puppies are born.
      Thank you

  8. Hi Stacy, I am looking for a miniature and not a toy. My Maggie weighed in around 11lbs when full grown. Please let me know when they are born! I would like to come pick her out when it’s time as I believe that the dog should pick the owner and not the other way around. 😍 Thanks, Laura
