Default Poodles that look like Doodles

Aka shaggy poodles, overgrown poodles, poodles without a face shave...

Can people please post pictures of poodles that have the teddy bear look?

So many people I know want a doodle. If that is what they ultimately want, then fine. BUT - I hate it when they diss poodles. I ask what is it about doodles that they like. The answers are: nice size, great family dog, non-shedding... Okay, why not just get a poodle? They scrunch their face and say "Ew, no... I don't like their haircuts." Are you kidding me? Why is it so hard for pro-doodle people to realize that you can have any hairstyle you want on a poodle? You CAN grow them out to look shaggy. And it always seems like after touting the best qualities of doodles vs. poodles - it comes down to looks!!! I really can't believe it.

So please post pictures to show people that poodles can look like doodles! Maybe if people are wavering between the two and it REALLY just comes down to how a poodle looks, this will convince them they can HAVE IT ALL with a poodle!

I don't have any pictures, but it is mostly looks that people don't like. Sad, but true. It's the darned pom poms. I recently had a nice chat with a young family and I think I convinced them to get a poodle instead of a doodle, except as they walked away the husband did say he wouldn't mind as long as they didn't have to do the goofy haircuts.

Outwest - I did see your thread about that incident. You handled it very well. I've also said similar things to people who had the choice between doodle or poodle - and it ALWAYS came down to looks.

I know people can search for poodle without face shave pics on this forum by doing a search for "teddy bear" on the forum, but wanted to compile as many overgrown poodle pics here for a nice reference. I've worded this thread and the post in a way that it will pop up when you search for "poodle" or "doodle" online or on the Poodle Forum.

Here's Leroy, probably the "shaggiest" he has ever been. The full body pics are before and after a bath (and blowdry and brushing). So you can see the difference in hair texture by just blow drying straight. For people who like the curly or shaggy look, you can bathe and air dry. But if the hair is long or tends to mat in places, you may have to blow dry it straight for brushing, then mist with some water after to get the curly, natural look.

Fluffyspoos - I was waiting for Vegas to show up! He is so handsome.

I just got back from the dog park with Leroy. People always ask me what kind of dog he is. I just say "poodle." And they just have a look like I'm joking. They keep asking "Poodle? Just poodle???" So then I answer "Yes. A Standard Poodle." And it's like they still can't believe it.

One lady said "A poodle? But the way his head looks... it's a different shape... he looks like a lamb!" I told her I cut his hair that way. It's so funny that people forget you can cut a poodle's hair to look like whatever you want. I was flattered by her comment of him looking like a lamb cause it tells me that I am getting somewhere with his Bedlington trim haha.

Not a spoo...but for those people wanting maltipoos, shihpoos, pompoos or even a tiny labradoodle/golden doodle, why not a toy poodle?

Michelle - I was thinking of Atticus's mohawk pics when I posted the pics of Leroy! Atticus is so cute. I'm glad you posted his pics cause this is open to all poodles of any size!

I have had more people say to me when we are out walking......"you mean they SHAVE the face that way????? You mean it doesn't just grow that way?" LOL

Honestly, I have had more than one person who was not familiar with the breed say that.... the first time someone said that I thought, what are they talking about? Then, it occurred to me, they actually thought the feet and face just had short hair. Go figure.
