The only certain reason why a toy poodle rescue group would be in existence is that there are many breeders who were careless enough to breed so many puppies and were not able to control the population. There are also those owners who just bought these dogs out of emotional outburst and never really thought about the responsibilities of having the dog. After a few months, they got tired of their dogs and they just decided to take the dogs in animal pounds or sold the dogs back to the breeders, who in turn, do not have enough energy and money to take care of them.
"Why should you own a toy poodle?" you may ask. There are many varying reasons as to owning a poodle. Aside from the fact that this dog is a very loving, gentle, and adorable breed, toy poodles are great companions as well. Contrary to the common knowledge that these are just toys, poodles can also actually guard your house and do not lack in courage as big dogs do. Poodles have an amazing character and personality and they are also very intelligent.
In many toy poodle rescue shelters, you will see several breeds of poodles waiting to be picked. When making a choice, first consider the things you need to know about poodles. This dog in general has a life expectancy of 15-20 years. This type of dog also does not need too much exercise. In a day, 20 minutes of walking is more than enough. Poodles are also best kept indoors.
Although it is true that a poodle is a symbol of a pampered dog, one does not really need to lavish his pet. As long as you provide adequate nourishment and vaccines, you are just about doing well. You do not really need to buy luxuries like dresses or clothing and high-end mattresses if you cannot afford it. Dogs can sleep well in cots or on the floor. By the way, you should remember that poodles should not be kept at homes where there are small children. Poodles also bite when provoked. The nice thing about poodles is that they do not bark so much like other dogs do. Poodles also have just an average level of energy they do not require lots attention like sports dogs.
Poodles are very intelligent and are said to have kept company to gypsies in olden times. Poodles can do several tricks among other things. Poodles are very cuddly and lovable. They have a warm personality and they are very friendly. Poodles are very trainable and are very lively. It is said that in general, smaller breeds of poodles are a lot more playful. The challenge is that poodles need professional grooming every six weeks. That translates to grooming every three months. The coat needs to be clipped almost every month. Because this dog was bred several times, the poodle is also very susceptible to diseases such as epilepsy. This is something you should know as a potential owner if you will get a dog form the toy poodle rescue groups.

Best poodle hybrid for family with young and energetic children?
Would like a dog that will be lots of fun for my family (playful), extremely loyal, does not shed, intelligent, and fairly easy to housebreak.
Would a poodle hybrid be a great choice? If yes, please give me your favorite mixes. Thanks so much!
I have a yorkie-poo. I had another one and he passed away in Oct of last year and i loved him so much and he was a great dog and that is why i got another one. Because of him yorkie-poo’s will always hold a special place in my heart. Anyway i think they are great dogs. My Buddy never shed. The one that i have now is only 3 months, but i haven’t seen her shed once yet. I don’t know some people say they do, but i noticed that it seems to be the people that don’t like little mixed breeds that say that. Don’t mind some of the people on here they really hate new words like yorkie-poo and seem to hate little dogs that people made up names for. Mostly the mixed breed little dogs. Morkie’s are really sweet as well. They don’t have poodle in them, but they are still sweet. Good Luck! If you are able to get from a shelter then great, but don’t let these people full you they do come from byb’s. The people on here seem to think that just cause it came from the shelter that it will never get sick and it didn’t come from a byb, but they say if you buy one that it will defiantly get sick. No matter what they say shelter dogs are usually from byb’s or worse yet puppy mills.
Never, ever buy from a pet store.
