I'm starting to get a little freaked out by all the health concerns concerning the poodle. Starting to question if I want to get one. My German Shepherd that had to be put down a few months ago had an eye disease. Can't think right now what it was called. She had to have prescription meds put in her eyes two times a day for years. She died of Kidney disease. Had a Yellow Lab (wonderful dog) YEARS ago that I listened to my Vet and had spayed at 3 months old (yes I know now, not good). She had to have medication for leaking urine from maybe 6 months old until she died of bone cancer at 11. I have two rescues now. A male, Rusty, that I adopted when he was 4 months. He's almost 12 now, 65 lbs., and a terrier mix that is 4 years 14 lbs. ONE of my reasons for being interested in the Poodle was shedding. Man!!! could my Shepherd leave hair in the house. So can Rusty but not like Sascha did. So I want a puppy. Don't want to adopt because they will be spayed or neutered before they should be. Don't want HAIR. Tell me, should I get a Poodle?????
