Often given rather curious haircuts by their owners, the poodle is a very smart and gentle dog. It's also great for kids with allergies, as it sheds very little; it does, however, require scheduled grooming.
This is a proud and elegant dog that is both caring and loyal. Seldom annoyed or bored, the poodle's friendly demeanor, good nature and patience make it an excellent playing partner for any child.
