One more pic
Yes. Any poodle that has white markings in its coat is referred to as an abstract. AKC doesn't allow them to be shown for breed but I think they are beautiful! I am hoping to train Carly to be shown in the agility class.Wow how funny! I had never seen a poodle with a little white chin like that, not even a photo until ummm I guess it was two weeks ago now we had one come into the salon. I think I posted pics of him somewhere. Anyway I thought that was a chance in a million that he would have a marking like that but here I sit ooohhhing and ahhhhing over your little baby with the same little white chin. I LOVE IT! How adorable!!
Am I to assume the term abstract refers to a solid dog with small white markings? Does that make my girl an abstract too?? She has a small white marking on her chest, much smaller that your baby, and white twos on both back feet. Just curious, I can't recall noticing the term before.
Oh she is cunning! and that last picture - oh what a beautiful face1 I love the shite spot!!!!Carly is the newest addition to the family. She steals everyone's heart. My husband and I just love her! Carly is an abstract and we just love the little white spot on her chin!
I am including some pics of Carly on the night she came home; which was only just last Thursday. She is 9 1/2 weeks old.
Thank you for the welcome. And, yes, she is a standard.She's very cute. She's a standard right?
Oh, welcome to the forum!
AH, ok that's interesting to know. I wonder how many absrtact poodles are showin in the breed ring anyway. You can do a lot with chalk, sharpie markers, and dye ..... or so I hear.
