|Toy Poodle Size
If you search the internet you will find all the information you need in regards to
the size of the Toy Poodle. Some list according to weight and some according to
size and also by age.
There are some very helpful articles written by Pamela Ingram (Sassafrass),
regarding the size of the Toy Poodle that might help you.
On my Poodle Information Site You Can Access
AKC and European (FCI) Sites
In the USA Toy poodles shown in the ring are required to be 10",
measured from the withers (shoulder) to the floor.
Many finish their Championships when they are UNDER one year of age and so I
will leave it up to the reader as to whether or not many of these toys remain 10"
In many European Countries Toy Poodles Are Shown at 11" And Are Beautiful.
Our Toys (When We Have An Occassional Litter) Are Coming Down From Some
Of The Most Notable Toy Poodle Lines Here In The United States.
We DO NOT BREED FOR "TINY" TOYS
OUR GOAL IS A TOY IN SIZE
THAT IS BETWEEN 10" TO 11 1/2"
MORE IMPORTANTLY WE TRY TO BREED FOR BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY
TOYS WITH OUTSTANDING PERSONALITIES,
FROM EXCEPTIONAL AKC PEDIGREES!!
SOMETIMES WE MAY HAVE A TOY THAT IS SMALLER ,
BUT THAT IS "NOT" OUR GOAL
MINATURE POODLES WERE BRED DOWN FROM THE STANDARD
POODLES, AND FROM THE MINATURES THE BEAUTIFUL TOYS
IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT POODLES, PLEASE GO TO OUR
INFORMATION SITE WHERE THERE IS A LIST OF BOOKS THAT YOU
CAN READ ALL ABOUT TOY POODLES.
THERE ARE BOOKS THAT "EXPLAIN" HOW THE SIZE ISSUE CAME INTO
EXISTENCE AND WHO AND WHY THE CHANGE WAS INSTITUTED LONG
IT IS IMPORTANT TO "LEARN" THE REASONING BEHIND IT.
IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT TOYS SHOULD RANGE BETWEEN 10" TO
AROUND 11 1/2 " AND THAT "QUALITY" AND EXCEPTIONAL
"PEDIGREE" WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE
THE ELEGANT TOY POODLE THAT HAS EVOLVED TODAY THROUGH
THE DEDICATED WORK OF THE AMERICAN TOY BREEDER, BOTH THE
HOBBY AND PROFESSIONAL BREEDER.
