My fabulous little girl got her second pass in UD yesterday, with a very handy score of 196! I was thrilled!

Excellent results! Congratulations! Any photos or videos we can see?

Hello Poodle Lovers! :)

I thought I'd pop in here to say hello and also because this thread is more active than the breed 101 thread. I am helping my parents find a toy poodle pup or younger dog to love and adore as a pet, not to breed or show. They keep saying it will be "Mum's" dog, but I know Dad will be smitten too. She seems to have her heart set on an apricot poodle but may be open to a red one and they say they don't mind about male vs female. I was wondering how toy poodle boys and girls differ in terms of temperament? I have a little chi x boy (pictured) and they'd need to get along, as I would be minding my parent's dog if they were to go on holidays without him/her. I guess it matters less about which sex than it does the right dog but I was wondering all the same. My dog actually used to be best friends with a male toy poodle pup when he was in foster care prior to adoption, they apparently never stopped playing! :)

I see it's important to check for PRA, are there other health checks that should be done? I think toy poodles can have problems with luxating patellas right? Or maybe I've just known a couple who do. I'm feeling quite daunted by the process of helping them narrow down the search. It's such an important decision.

PS: It continually amazes me how many colours poodles come in, does anyone here own a rainbow of poodles? I can imagine if one loved the breed and liked having multiple dogs, it would be really tempting to get one of each especially since people seem to say they are like popcorn, can't stop at one!! :D

Simply stunning photo! Really beautiful face & colour! My 1st G'Day Silver Sam Poodle was a silver Mini He was as intelligent as a 5 year old child an obsessive retriever & could swim underwater like a fish. He lived for 16 1/2 years & is laid to rest in my garden.

:wave: It doesn't matter if its a boy or a girl as long as both dogs are desexed. Both sexes are very sweet & affectionate when raised right & poodles are such people dogs.

There are a few other things toy poodles can suffer from but there aren't any dna tests for them as there is for PRA. Luxating patella may be a problem with many small breeds. Good breeders research their lines & would not breed with any that had such things as epilepsy or patella problems in the lines. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with the breeder, visit their home whenever possible & be happy with the environment & the way they relate to their dogs. If buying interstate ask if friends or relatives can visit for you, if you have any in that state. Its ok having various colours as pets but for breeding some colours do not blend well & can produce unexpected suprise/ blotchy colours in puppies.

Hope to see new puppy photos on here soon. Good luck in your search & try not to feel daunted.

The gorgeous Miss Mei Li successfully and effortlessly birthed 4 SILVER pups last week, 3 sweet girls and one little boy. In keeping with the Royal birth they have been named Dee Dee (Diana) yellow collar and first born, Louie (after HRH Prince Williams middle name) green collar, Charlay (part of Charlotte) Red collar, and finally Lottie (part of charlotte) Purple collar. Mum is devoted and caring for them like she has done it all before!Exciting times to have my first home bred litter under my own prefix. :cheer:

Can someone please message me, I am looking for a toy poodle breeder as a person I know is wishing to purchase one later this year. He wants a black, lovely family, I told him the grooming responsibilities and the requirement for professional grooming and he did not bat an eyelid and would do anything to keep the dog happy. Dog will not be bred, limited reg only and there is no arguments if the breeder wishes to desex before sale.

I wonder if anyone on this forum knows of any breeders with an adult miniature poodle they are looking to rehome. I want one as a pet and for dog training.

Can anyone with more knowledge on poodle colour help me out.

We have a gorgeous little black toy boy named Hugo, he is coming up to 10months and I've noticed more and more he has a reddish tinge to his coat.

I've had a black mini and standard in the past and they were both jet black, but they only had blacks and whites in their lines.

Our boy's mum was red and his dad was black, is it common to end up with this issue from the parents colours, I've never noticed it before in any black poodle I've groomed.

He's a gorgeous boy but I am a little disappointed he's not turning out to be a good solid black.

It could be just the start of coat change and it is puppy coat dropping. Red and apricot added to black lines usually enhances coat colour in blacks. Could also be a blue starting to change, might have to wait until coat change has finished, the breeder should know if there are blues in the lines.

Thank you I was in correspondence with his breeder until I asked them the question and I haven't heard from them since, I wasn't asking them to be critical just wondering what to expect.

My mini girl as a pup was so dark it was hard to see her face clearly in a lot of pics but Hugo is not as dark, it became quite noticeable while taking photos.

My problem child Toby had a bath and a clip today. We have constant battles because my family like her to look scruffy but I like her clipped. :) Decided to try a lamb clip. Legs aren't quite long enough to get the look right, and I'm not happy with her head but otherwise I think she looks pretty nice. :) Far out its a big job though - 2.5hrs to bath, blow dry then clip.
