Hello everyone - we have been looking for a poodle for our family for a past few months and not had luck. My son has mild allergies and my daughter is 2 so size is important to us. We however landed with putting a deposit down on a standard but I got cold feet a few weeks before we were to get him because I got nervous about a big dog. I then started to research minis and Moyen's and realized that's a whole different world. In short at the moment, I am looking for a large Mini or Moyen (that is bred with standards and no cross bred with mini) or a really small standard under 45 lbs. We are in the NY area but will travel for the right pup. Looking for advice on how to narrow down this process and find the right dog for us. We are focused on temperament rather than color or gender. Leads of reputed small breeders who will carefully help select the right pup is also appreciated.
