Breed Details

Miniature Poodle

Miniature Poodle

The Poodle breed actually has its roots in Germany where it originated as a water retriever. The Standard was the original Poodle but in later years there was an increased interest in the smaller-sized members of the breed and breeders developed the Miniature Poodle to answer the demand. The Miniature Poodle was granted separate breed status by The Kennel Club of England in 1910.

The Miniature Poodle is a charming companion and an excellent prospect for obedience work. It is intelligent, cheerful and easy to please. The Miniature Poodle is an active dog that fits well into city living. A daily walk satisfies his exercise requirements.
