What's the history of red poodles?
There's been some heated debate on this forum, recently and in the past, about the various breeders of red poodles. Is this colouration a more recent variation in poodles? Is it like parti poodles, where it was not accepted by the mainstream poodle breeders in the past but is now coming more to the forefront? I'm just generally interested and have tried to do some searching but have come up short on the history of reds.
I was also wondering why red poodles don't tend to do as well in the AKC confirmation ring (and I'm assuming CKC ring as well?) I know from PWDs that there are certain known things that do and don't do well in the confirmation ring, often for no real reason, but wondered why this colour specifically does poorly...
