Few dogs have climbed to such high favor as has the Poodle. We aren’t sure, but it is believed the Poodle originated in Germany. However, for years it has been regarded as the National dog of France. The toy and minis that we carry here at Coldwater Kennel were bred down from the Standard poodle which was originally a water retriever. We have raised poodles since 1979 and are a breed I have become very familiar with. We had 3 miniatures for house pets ourselves. Poodles are one of the most diversified breeds and are highly intelligent. When I’d be outside working, my little poodle buddies would take off and go rabbit hunting. Always seeming to find one to chase. We prefer the mini to the toy, believing they are a little more layed back. Toys are 10 inches and under, Miniatures are 11-15 inches and the standards are above 15 inches. We mostly breed cream and apricot, with a few of the other colors as well.
