Most people around here don't know what Harry is so they always ask if he's a poodle. I have to explain that he's a standard poodle which is the largest size. So far no one has ever been afraid of him because he's so friendly. He'll stick his nose on anyone and always has his tail going but his mother is very cautious around new people. She's a girl so she's a bit different in personality than Harry is and his sister is very similar to that.
