The Poodle



Elegant and Dignified

This poodle is the only breed that comes in three different sizes and a variety of different colors including white, black, apricot and gray. The stylish "Poodle clip" was designed by hunters to help the dogs move through the water more efficiently.

There is the toy, minature and standard size with the standard being the oldest and most popular. The toy was often used in circuses.
