Miniature Poodle

From Dog

The Miniature Poodle breed are a European dog.

The Miniature Poodle has a graceful, small- to medium-sized frame with a rounded skull, a long head and muzzle, dark oval eyes and wide, close-hanging ears. They have docked tails (usually) and compact, webbed feet. The coat is sometimes curly, sometimes corded or ribbed, and can be any solid color. Grooming styles include the “pet clip” (short all over), the “Continental clip” (the hindquarters shaved, half of the tail and the upper half of the legs) “English saddle clip” (same as the “Continental Clip” except the hindquarters are not shaved). Most show dogs appear with the “Continental Clip.”

Miniature Poodles can live as long as 15 years.
