Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forum and to toy poodles. I've decided, after much thought and research, to get a toy poodle! I found the little guy I'm getting. He's about 4 weeks old right now and will be ready to come home with me March 20th.

I've visited him and his 4 brothers 2 times, hopefully a few more before the big homecoming. I met the mother and father, as well as the 5 other poodles living in the house in every range of size and color.

I'm wondering if there is a way to predict the pup's size. Momma was around 6lbs, close to 7(full of milk) and pops was 4lbs. Also...should i expect his color to fade a little?

Any and all puppy tips are welcomed and appreciated! Nice to meet you all!

Awww...cute picture. Best way for toys that I have heard is to take their 12 week weight and double it...that is a good estimate of adult weight. I would guess from the parents weight that anything from 3-7 lbs could happen...just have to see what you baby does!

Welcome and can't wait to see his home-coming pictures!

Congratulations on your new baby! Very cute! I'm of no help on the size. We have a standard poodle who just turned one yesterday. Her parents are both champions and weigh 65lbs each. My poodle only weighs 37 lbs.:noidea:
We also have a yorkie that was suppose to be 5 to 6lbs and she weighs in at 14lbs. So you really never know what size they will be - it's all in the genes. Can't wait to see more pictures of your new baby.
Welcome to the forum.

Congrats on your beautiful little boy. Im not sure on the fading question though. He looks like a rich apricot to me but he can lighten or even darken. What color are his parents?

Thank you! His parents were a nice medium to dark apricot, and both very sweet dogs. He came from a litter of five boys, he was by far the darkest. There was one that was cream, 3 apricots, and my little guy. I'm so excited to bring him home! :biggrin1:

:welcome: Krista! Your little guy is just adorable. Does he have a name yet? I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of him growing up, too.
