The Poodle's curly, dense single layer coat is considered hair, not fur as in most dogs. If left unclipped and unbrushed, the Poodle's coat will cord or form dreadlocks. They shed minimally and are considered hypoallergenic. There are 10 standard coat colors. The Mini Poodle is around 10-15 pounds and the life expectancy of a Mini Poodle is 10-18 years. This size tends to be the most popular in the Poodle breed.
The Mini Poodle has the same smarts and temperament as the standard Poodle. Considered the second smartest breed on the planet, the Mini Poodle will do well in training and showing off their skills. Great for a family, the Mini Poodle is charming and affectionate!
