Default American vs. French Poodle?

Hi all,

Met up today with a really lovely cafe au lait mini at the park this morning. His name was Clipper, and his mommy rescued him. She said she was told one day by someone in passing that her dog was an "American Poodle" because he has a shorter snout than Fozzie.

I'd never heard of it and thought for sure the wise and experienced folks here would know if that was true or not. Is there such a differentiation?

Lol, there's no difference. Poodles aren't even from france, they're from germany.

I didn't think so either. I suspect puppy mill and cross breed but I wasn't about to say a word. he was too sweet a dog and she was too sweet a mamma.

Good for you! A poodle's a poodle, no matter how ... something. ;-)

Some minis that have toy in their background have shorter snouts than others, I suspect. I look at my Pippin, of unknown background, and he definitely looks a bit "toy-ish" in the face. He is about 12 - 13". Look at Casey, and he looks like a standard writ small, which is what he's supposed to look like. And he has overgrown the mini size by an inch or more. Doesn't look like a bit of toy in his background. But both of them would be called "minis."

Maybe she meant it was a Poodle / American Bulldog mix. LOL

Seriously, I think some BYBs breed for shorter noses because it makes the dogs look more teddy bear like.

I couldn't get that Karbit link to work. Try this:

index

They don't show their dogs -- well nobody shows Standards that are small like that. But their dogs look nice and I believe they do health testing.

I met SchnauzerPoodle's little Nickel yesterday. He's already 15 inches and 15 pounds at 5 months so he's on track to hit that desired size.

and by the way, he's ah-DORE-able. zOMG. so much puppy fluff and fabulousness. He and Fozzie ran like crazy together chasing each other!
