Welcome to PF! Buck is my first poodle and I wouldn’t consider any other breed. You can downsize, supersize and select from a rainbow of colors. They are clever, athletic, don’t shed or smell (unless they’ve rolled in something) and if you are not showing in conformation, you can groom them anyway you like. You will not regret getting a poodle
The only other dog breed I would consider is GSD (we have one of them too), but poodles are my dog heart and soul. They are all of the wonderful things others have already said, but remember they are really wildly smart and left to their own devices are evil little (or not so little) geniuses, so be prepared to give your poodle (when you get one) a job, lots of training and good brain games.
