History

Poodles are supposed to have originated in Germany, where it is known as the Pudel or Canis Familiaris. The English word Poodle comes from the German Pudel , meaning to splash in the water. However for years it has been regarded as the national dog of France, where it was commonly used as a retriever as well as a traveling-circus trick dog. In France it is known as the Caniche, or duck dog. It is known that this breed has been around for at least 400 years throughout Western Europe. Despite the conversey France has now been officially recognized as its country of origin.

The Poodle's distinctive looks have made it a popular subject for paintings, dating back to the 15th century. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Poodle could be seen in circuses throughout Europe and America performing a variety of tricks. The French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec did a series of drawing and paintings of the breed. The Toy Poodle was breed down from the Standard and Miniature Poodle. This breed has become one of the most popular dog breeds ever.

While the standard Poodle has a high playfulness with other dogs the Toy poodle is a little less enthusiastic. Of course this is just in general and depends on the environments in which they are raised. They can be shy with strangers and should be socialized as a puppy. They tend to love children interaction with their owners. The Toy Poodle is not considered as a "yappy" dog. They will bark to defend or warn their owners but tend to be more reserved then other small toy breeds. Although they are high in excitement they don't seem to be a destructive type when left alone. Some dogs when left alone at home can damage items out of boredom or anxiety. This tends not to be the case with Toy Poodles as long as they get sufficient amount of exercise and companion.
