  • Overview:

    Poodles are a group of formal dog breeds, the Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle, and Toy Poodle. The origin of the breed is still discussed, with a prominent dispute over whether the poodle descends from Germany as a type of water dog, or from the French Barbet.

    The poodle does shed, but instead of the fur coming off the dog, it becomes tangled in the surrounding hair.
