"There are three sizes of Poodles--Standard, Miniature, and Toy. They are alike in every way except for size. All Poodles originated from the Standard Poodle. Poodles are smart, loyal, proud and fun. They seem to understand the moods of their special friends. They enjoy the challenges of obedience training, which gives these intelligent dogs great happiness. Politely reserved around strangers, they can also have a playful sense of humor.

"The Poodle is very active, intelligent, and elegant" (AKC).
