To the negative commentators, this poodle is from generations and generations of health tested poodles to bring families healthy, happy, responsibly bred companions. She is a normal dog. She is well loved, digs and sleeps on the couch, plays in every snow bank or mud puddle she can find. A normal dog. She is not mistreated. She is well loved, fed only the best, spoiled rotten, has better health care then most Americans, and is in beautiful physical shape. As a matter of fact she will bark and run crazy around the house if she thinks she is being left behind when going to a show, that's how much she loves it. Responsible breeders spend a lot of money health testing their dogs before they are ever bred. We are with puppy families for life giving advice and even taking them back at any age if for any reason they cannot keep them. We don't abandon our dogs, EVER! Please be informed before you say this is animal cruelty. As a vet tech for 20+ years that is a term you should not use lightly. And spend the weekend at a dog show, especially Westminster and then tell me the dogs and owners aren't athletes and this isnt a sport.

So many ignorant and hateful comments. I bet all of the people who spewed negativity on this photo of this beautiful, well bred little poodle have never been to a dog show. Such a shame. This mindset is why people have no trouble shelling out thousands of dollars for a poorly bred mixed breed with no regard to the standards and careful breeding practices that pure bred dog lovers have poured into their breeds for generations. They will protest a dog show, and oooh and awwww over the mixed puppy from the puppy mill. Smh.
