The Poodle is one of the most popular dogs in the world and is in fact one of the oldest purebred dogs. The Standard is thought to be a French dog but they actually originated from Germany and were originally known as gun dogs. They were hardworking dogs that were known for their retrieving and hunting purposes.
Nowadays, this breed is more known as a lapdog rather than a working dog. The Toy Poodle originated from the Miniature variety and were selectively bred in the 18th century in England. They still have all the same features but just come in a much smaller size. This has only increased their popularity in the United States in recent years, as Toy dog breeds are very much in demand and are known as fashionable or celebrity dogs.

The Toy Poodle is known to be a playful, lively and loving little dog. They love to be around people, children included, and will thrive in an environment where they can play with you and join in the family fun. Although they may be shy at first, they will quickly become your loving little companion who will want to spend their day by your side and cuddle up with you on the couch at night. They do well in a number of different homes and are suitable for many different people.
Although their exercise needs are not great, they can get bored very easily and do not really like to be left alone. Training can help with issues such as separation anxiety, but you shouldn’t purchase a Poodle if you are not going to be able to be with them for large portions of the day. Our Toy Poodles for sale are all bred in family settings to ensure early socialization.

The life expectancy of a Toy Poodle is relatively long. These dogs can be expected to live anywhere between 12 to 15 years.
Of course, as with any dog, the Toy Poodle is prone to some health issues. These issues can be the same issues that a Standard Poodle is predisposed to as well. The main three health problems that you may see in your Toy Poodle are:
- Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
- Hip Dysplasia
- Addison’s Disease

Appearance & Coat
Toy Poodle is a very small dog. They are very portable and easier to manage than the bigger variations of this fur baby. When they are fully grown, they stand at a maximum of 10 inches and weigh between 6 to 9lb. A male will weigh slightly more than a female.
The Poodle coat is short to long and very curly. They have a hypoallergenic coat, which is perfect for those with allergies because it means that they do not really shed their fur. A Toy Poodle puppy has a very soft coat. This curly coat can become more coarse as they become an adult dog and does require brushing, but we will go into more detail about grooming later on.
