Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)

Standard Poodles are quite beautiful, and esteemed dogs. Their high intelligence makes for easy training, and can be housebroken quickly if trained as a puppy. These dogs can be friendly, but can also be a bit aloof. They are not the most outgoing breed, and can take a bit of time to warm up to those they are unfamiliar with. I would not recommend this breed for families with small children, as these dogs tend to nip, and are not very patient.
