Appearance
The poodle comes in three varieties, which are Toy, Miniature, and Standard. The standard Poodle is medium to large in size, and has a graceful yet sturdy build. He carries himself with elegance, and something of a regal look about him. These dogs are known for their abundant, tight curls, with a coat that is profuse and harsh in texture. The coloring of the Poodle can vary and includes brown, red, silver, cream, black, white, and apricot. They have long, tapering muzzles, and a wise, thoughtful expression. The ears are long and hang to the side of the face. The height of the standard Poodle is around 22-25 inches for females and around 24-27 inches for males. These dogs weigh in at 40-65 pounds for females, and around 55-80 pounds for males. Miniature Poodles are around 10-14 inches in height, and weigh in at around 15-20 pounds. The Toy Poodle is just 4-7 pounds in weight, and reaches around 5-10 inches in height.
 

Temperament
The Poodle is a popular family pet with an impressive top ten ranking in the AKC popularity lists. The Poodle is one of the most intelligent and trainable of all breeds. This is a proud looking and intelligent dog, that is very quick to learn and is easy to train. The Poodle is a dog that will suit both inexperienced and experienced dog owners. He is a good natured, sociable dog, and although lively and energetic is also calm when indoors. The Poodle enjoys interaction and companionship from his owners, and is not suited to those with little time to dedicate to their pets. They are eager to please their owners, and make excellent family pets. The Poodle does have a fair amount of energy and does need regular exercise, so this is not the right choice for a couch potato - mental and physical stimulation are important to this intelligent breed.

The Poodle is loyal and protective of his loved ones, and makes a relatively effective watchdog. He gets along well with children, but his size means that he is best suited to older children. These dogs are normally welcoming and polite with strangers, and tend to get along well with other pets. The steady temperament coupled with his sociability makes him ideal for active families who will welcome him as a member of the family. You should socialize your Poodle early on to promote a steady temperament, as some can be timid or nervous. If you tend to be away a lot it is best not to consider this breed, as they do need plenty of attention.

 
History
The Poodle has a mixed history in terms of his origins, as he originated from Germany but was developed in France. He was once used to retrieve ducks from the water, which is reflected in his love for water. He was then used as a show dog in France, and went on to become a favorite with the wealth and the national dog of France. He was registered with the AKC in 1887.
 
Health
The life expectancy of the Poodle is around 10-13 years for Standard Poodles, 13-16 years for Miniature Poodles and up to 16 years for Toy Poodles. There are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed, and this includes Addison's Disease, HD, PRA, bloat, SA, epilepsy, entropion, cataracts, renal disease, and allergies. The parents of the Poodle puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates, and you should also ask about clearance relating to vWD and SA (sebaceous adenitis).
