We have also looked at Paris Poodles but haven't gotten responses to our inquiries lately. We are looking for a small (20-22") red standard. We want a working poodle rather than the foo foo type. Also have negative feelings towards tail docking for what seems to be mostly cosmetic reasons. We basically liked the look of their dogs. However, we are open to other options. We are now at the point in our research to start visiting breeders.
