Poodle

a dog characterized by its thick curly coat and the intriguing, yet standardized, patterns created by clipping and grooming that usually leave isolated patches of profuse coat separated by areas that are closely clipped. Three varieties are recognized as separate breeds: Standard, which must be 15 inches or more tall; Miniature, 10-15 inches tall; and Toy, which is less than 10 inches (11 inches in the British Kennel Club standards). The breeds are predisposed to otitis externa, progressive retinal atrophy, epilepsy, patent ductus arteriosus, cystinuria, patellar luxation, cataracts, distichiasis and atlanto-axial luxation.
