Hi my name is misty, i am a brand new owner of a standard poodle. I have always bread german shepherds with my mom, and to our suprise about 10 months ago i developed an allergic reaction to the dogs. So my mom bought two male stand. poodles and gave one to me, he was just about 8-10 weeks old and one heck of a furball lol he was so adorable. Now he is 8 months old and huge. I dont know alot about the breed yet but so far im loving it, i still cant figure out what color he will mature at everyone tells me different things but oh well i love him no matter what color. I also have two kids, a 2 year old and a 5 year old and he does great with them as well. I dont really know what else to put here so i guess ill close. Thank you all for letting me join this forum and im hoping to meet some new friends and hopefully really learn more about this wounderful breed.
