Where did brindles come from ? where they always a color within the breed?

I have never read any info or history about poodles coming in brindle ?

I have seen merle "poodle" but those are definitely mixes

I am really iffy on sable and brindle being a natural accuring color and I think that another breed had to have introduced the color. The majorty of brindles/sables are not of good quality.

The same could be said for Cockers & Chihuahuas.

I'm going to have to agree...I mean the poodles on that site posted earlier are extremely big! 29 inches is really huge! Not to mention they look a bit off balance because their rears are so high up!

Some of them look very interesting but I would rather not sacrifice the quality of the dog for the color or pattern.

Edit:

Further perusing of their site reveals they are breeding "royals" *rolls eyes*

That first one, Harvey, is beautiful!

I'm not a fan of any dog that is 'brindle' color, nor horses (I don't know what you call a horse but I think you know the coloring that I mean), or even cats (LOL) so perhaps it's just a preference.

I love the big solid portion ones, remind me of collies.

Their Rears look high up because she shot them on a hill with their front going down hill. I know because I have done the same type of photo shoot. Not appealing for anything with length like dogs and horses. It's always best to shoot them going up hill.

As for the colors and size, god made them so enjoy them. Unfortunately breeders used to kill the "ugly" or "non-conforming" to their standard pup. Now people can enjoy all of gods creations.

Sure you could say that. I don't agree with killing pups that don't conform. But I do think they should be taken out of any breeding program and speutered as pets!

Off topic: Our first Portuguese Water Dog was a terrible physical specimen! Well, I thought he was handsome, but he didn't really look like his breed. He was high in the rear, too tall, had a tail with a bizzare pigs curl at the end, yellow eyes... I could go on. The first year we were at the specialty, someone pointed at him and said "that looks nothing like what a PWD should look like." Were we mildly insulted? Sure. But as we learned more about what a PWD should look like, we agreed. That didn't stop him from being a fantastic pet or the dog that will always hold a special place in my heart. It's a good thing we neutered him though, because we did not need to be carrying on his genes.

Back on topic!

I like the look of a nice parti, although as my eye becomes more educated, I can see how some of them have very poor structure. I have no idea if brindle/ sable/ whatever is naturally occuring in poodles or not... Maybe we'll never know. Although now I want to know! Any colour historians on this board?

Several pictures were taken on a flat surface when they are not moving, and their rears continue to be high, so I don't understand how them walking down hill has anything to do with it. Everyone is welcome to interpret their photos in whatever manner they like, that's how I see them.

And breeders(not all, most spay/neuter and put in pet homes) continue to cull non-conforming pups from ALL breeds. I don't think it is right, but I also don't think it's right to try and breed larger because of the health problems that can arise. If we didn't have a breed standard, we wouldn't have a breed.

I don't care about the color of the dog, because we all have different taste. What I find unattractive another may love. I like parti's, but I don't like the other multi-colors. I said nothing about culling, I just said I would not want to own a poodle with those markings because *I* don't like the way it looks. I just don't like people breeding for just color, size, or both. Many people are doing just that whether it be parti's, teacups, or royals. I would rather have a healthy poodle, not a poodle bought solely on the color or size.

IMHO the site mentioned earlier is breeding royals, which I don't agree with. Purposefully breeding bigger seems risky, regardless of what colors they choose to breed.

I also have no problem with partis, phantoms, sables, brindles, etc. I do have a problem with people who breed these colors with no regard towards the health of the dog and the breed standard.
