My fiance rescued a pug from a No Kill shelter several years ago. He was so severaly abused he was missing almost all of his fur and he had fleas so bad he lost 1 of his eyes so my fiance named him Uno. He didn't know how to walk on grass or even play. He never barked, gave kisses, or jumped up to greet us. Sadly Uno passed away last year and my fiance was devistated to say the least, So when we came across the chug I knew I had to get him a Chug puppy! If any one could let me know of any puppies in the Pennsylvania are I would greatly appreciat it. Thank You. Amy Sheffler

Poodles are dignified and intelligent dogs that get along well with children. They also usually do well with strangers. The Miniature Poodle, Toy Poodle, and Teacup Poodle are more excitable than the Standard Poodle
In intelligence, Poddles are considered second only to the Border Collie. These are highly trainable companion dogs, and very do well in agility skills too. When selecting a Poodle, look for eye and ear problems, skin conditions, and Von Willebrand's disease.
Common Name(s) Poodle, Toy Poodle, Miniature Poodle, Standard Poodle, Teacup Poodle, Caniche, Barbone, Chien Canne
Breed Type A non-sporting breed, the Poodle is one of the most recognizable types of dog. Although primarily thought of as a pet and show dog, the Poodle has been trained successfully for a variety of work and hunting activities.
Background France is recognized as the Poodle's country of origin, but there is some debate about that. It is known, however, that the development of the breed took place there. Research has shown that the Poodle is a descendant of the Barbet, and possibly of the Hungarian Water Hound. There are three varieties of Poodles: Standard, Miniature, and Toy. There are also numerous popular hybrids of the breed, including the Labradoodle, Schnoodle, Peek-a-Poo, and Shih Poo.
Description Poodles have wiry, curly coats and rounded skulls with long muzzles. Their ears are long, wide and fluffy. Eyes are usually dark. Colors include white, brown, black, gray, and apricot, but any solid color is acceptable. Sizes are as follows:
Standard: 15 inches or taller, 45-70 pounds
Miniature: 11-15 inches tall, 15-17 pounds
Toy: Up to 10 inches tall, 6-9 pounds
Care and Feeding Foods containing wheat, corn, fish and poultry are recommended for Poodles. Poodles require lots of grooming. They need regular baths, and should be clipped at least every two months. The Poodle's tail is usually docked to half its original length, particularly in the United States. Poodles are prone to several ailments, so they need regular checkups. Vaccinations are due as follows:
Poodles shed very little, however they are prone to allergies. Therefore it is important to keep their environment clean.
Housing Your Dog Poodles may live indoors or out. They are suitable for apartment living as long as they get sufficient exercise.
Social Behaviors Poodles are very social animals, and they need to be around people as much as possible. They usually get along well with strangers, children and other dogs.
Handling and Training The Poodle is one of the easiest breeds to train. They shine in obedience and agility training.
Activities Poodles do not require a large amount of exercise, but they do need a daily walk. Standard Poodles need more exercise than the smaller varieties.
Breeding/Reproduction Hereditary problems common to Poodles include allergies, hip dysplasia, Von Willebrand's disease, and eye problems (including blindness). Potential mates' lineage should be checked for these things.
Common Health Problems In addition to hereditary diseases, runny eyes and ear infections are two common ailments in Poodles. These can often be treated with medication.
Availability Poodles are reasonably easy to acquire. Prices vary greatly, and depend partially on the size of the dog.
