About the Toy Poodle

The Poodle first originated in Germany in the 18th Century where they were bred as companion dogs, used to hunt mushrooms, and worked as water retrievers. The exaggerated show hair cut we see today was actually used to keep the dogs joints and torso warm in cold water. Toy Poodles were frequently used in the circus because of their high intelligence and love of performing tricks. The breed became especially popular in France when King Louis the XVI fell in love with his Toy Poodles. The entire royal court  became poodle lovers as well and soon the breed was thought of as France's national dog. Today the word about these lovable dogs has been spread all around the world and the Toy is the most popular of the three sizes of Poodle. The three varieties together are ranked ninth in popularity among the breeds registered by the American Kennel Club.
