Poodles are certainly a dog-lover's dream-dog. They are hypoallergenic! In cartoons, these dogs are occasionally pink. But unless they are dyed pink, Poodles are pink in reality. Poodles are also girly in most cartoons, but in reality, Poodles are a great dog for anyone!
This is a popular dog breed. It came from Germany, and there, Poodles were bred as water retrievers. Today, it's more likely to find a Poodle as a companion than a retriever. This dog is extremely smart. Poodles are one of the most intelligent dogs, second only to the Border Collie. Poodles have a weather-resistant coat that protected them in frigid or scorching water.
The breed comes in 3 different sizes: Standard, Miniature, and toy. The standard is the biggest of all the sizes. It may be the most popular too. Miniature is not the biggest, but not the smallest of the sizes. Toys are the smallest size, and make great watchdogs.
Poodles love to please you. Some can "read." If you see a Poodle read a word, they aren't really reading. No one really knows for sure about what they really are doing to "read."
Poodles love their families, and do well with kids, or other pets. The coat is high maintenance and therefore may result in high grooming bills. Poodles do need some exercise and space, especially the standard poodles.
If you think the Poodle is right for you, take care. Remember-A healthy Poodle is a happy Poodle.
