Hello, I'm new to this board, but I have loved and owned poodles for most of my adult life. Previously, I've had minis. My two current poodles are officially toys. Beau is five, a silver male, but at 12 inches he has outgrown his toy status. Belle is two, and close to 10 inches. Both dogs are spayed/neutered and are well loved pets. I would never dare to breed as I couldn't part witha single pup, and I would end up a one of those little old ladies with way too many animals.
