The hair is always curly, but in terms of color there is a lot of variety: white, black, earth color, dark brown, gray... A lot of variety! But you know what? Although today they are a single homogeneous color, originally they used to be two-color, specifically white and brown. Curious, right? They must have looked like little furry cows!


Temperament


He is very affectionate and very attached to his owner. He needs to socialize a lot, both with you and other humans and with other dogs.


His hunting genes and ancestors make him a great watchdog. He will protect the house and bark at any strange occurrence.

He adapts wonderfully to all types of companies and environments: city, countryside, children, the elderly... He likes everything! Great right!


Care

Having long, curly hair requires brushing it often. However, he is a dog that does not shed hair, so don't be afraid to find your sofa full of his hair!


Also try to keep his ears clean and dry. Be careful with humidity! When you go to bathe him, be careful not to point the stream of water directly at his ears.


They are generally healthy and resistant dogs and should not have problems if cared for properly. At Cachorros RD we have them well taken care of and ready to fill you with love after all, it is a very long-lived breed! They can reach up to 15 years of life or even more, it will all depend on how much you take care of them and return the love they give you.



Did You Know?


1: The poodle breed dog, also called poodle, was bred and became very popular in France, becoming almost the iconic dog of the country. But you know what? They actually originate from Germany, where they were trained and used in hunting.

2: The name comes from the French “canichon”, which means baby duck and its English name, from the German verb “pudeln”, which means to play, to splash. Poodles are so much fun!

3: Companions of kings, They became popular in France in the 15th century, where they were common companions of kings and aristocrats. Louis XVI, the husband of the well-known Marie Antoinette, had a poodle dog. These dogs began to spread throughout Europe and became popular in Spain during the 16th and 17th centuries. Proof of this is, for example, Goya's portrait of the Duchess of Alba, accompanied by a small white poodle at her feet.
