Poodles exude intelligence, zest for life, and devotion to their people. They are Labradors with a college education, second in smarts only to a Border Collie. They come in four sizes, wrapped in soft, non-shedding coats of many color that can be styled in various ways. Do not let the soft locks and soulful eyes full you, however. Under the looks, there is a real dog, eager to engage in family activities. From city walks to nature hiking, from playing with kids to sports requiring body and mind precision, Poodles enjoy it all. The combination of all these attributes makes the small Poodle varieties the ultimate family companion dog!
