Default Different poodle faces

Hello!

I'm just confused and honestly, I'm not sure if I can ask this question correctly but let me give it a shot.

I'm in the market for "bear face" toy poodles.

but I'm not really sure how to identify one. Most of the adult toy poodles I see in pictures don't have facial fur aka the usual poodle look.


I don't know, no offense to the ones who like that look, but I really don't like that look so we are looking for a toy poodle that looks like a bear instead of the usual poodle look.

So my question is, are all poodles eventually going to look like that when they grow older? Or that look is due to shaving the facial fur and if I don't shave, he'll remain looking like a bear?

I guess I might as well ask you if these pup (THE RED ONE) will continue to look as he is or will he lose the facial fur and look like the usual poodle:



And this one as well, I really like this one's color but he seems to have less facial fur:



Do I have to get one that already has a lot of facial fur as a puppy to achieve the bear look? Or all poodles will have a bear face if not shaved. Or all poodles will all look like the usual poodle (naked snout)?

Ahh I'm so sorry if I'm not making any sense. I don't know how to explain it well. :(

Most on here have more experience than me but I'll field this one: poodle hair grows forever, so you will need to have your poodle clipped many, many, MANY times over its lifespan. You can ask the groomer for whatever clip you want! The fluffy face is just a poodle whose facial hair hasn't been clipped for a while, or else just scissored to achieve that effect. If you decide to get a poodle, they're awesome!!

Okay so you are saying that I can get just about any toy poodle and not shave his facial hair and will get the look that I desire? If that's the case that's awesome! I really like that last puppy that i posted (the one with white patch, i think they call that a mismark).

Is that your dog (avatar)? Did you achieve that look by shaving his facial hair?

Thank you! Thank you! This has been bugging me for a few days now. I can't decide on a puppy due to now knowing this lol.

By the way, the toy poodle is for me an my 4 year old sister.

All poodle can have 'bear look' as long as the face is not shave =) No worries... I live in a place where more then 95% poodle is having bear face... the 5% minority choose the clean shaven poodle face.

Have fun getting your new poodle!

Yes, you can get a fluffy face on any poodle you want by just not shaving its face. My avatar is one of my standard poodles, Maddy, and I have to shave their faces every week to keep their faces like that. Poodle hair grows really fast! I like the clean-shaven face, but there are many, many clips and how you clip them is just personal preference. Does your 4 year old sister have experience with dogs? Just wondering as toy poodles can be sort of fragile. Some kids are really gentle though (just not mine! ha,ha). Also there are lots of different poodle lines, so you can look for just the right size and temperament for your family. One really important thing is to look for a breeder who cares about and tests for health. Unless you get a rescue dog, there are tons of rescues who need a home too. By the way, I love that little mis-marked pup in your picture too! Sooooo cute!

My little sister is very gentle, I don't think we'll have problems with her hurting the puppy. We don't have that big of a house so we are kinda limited to the toy poodle which isn't bad at all, in fact we prefer the toy since standards and minis are really rare here in the Philippines.
