Here is my little princess. Her name is Midnight but she responds to a wide variety of names. She gives high fives if it suits her when she is asked and is extremely helpful when you are trying to study Everyone in my family claims that I spoil and pamper her but that is clearly not the case and my dad takes it a step further by claiming that she has very carefully trained me...
Her mom was a field English cocker spaniel and her dad was a small poodle. She definitely has those poodle brains, doesn't shed much, and it take a while to bathe her because the water beads and rolls off her coat at first.
The only bad part is that she wants to play with the budgies.
I cop a triple whammy with mine. Poodle brains are closely followed by Border Collies and Kelpies and mine have both of those from their great grandmother. One usually responds to everything I say but the other one understands but chooses to ignore.
Shes so beautiful! Because shes a poodle mix does that mean she doesn't shed? Always wanted an apricot poodle. Hehe, that way I wouldn't be the only ginger in the family
She will shed a little bit in the fall and spring but not a lot and not even close to what a spaniel will do even though she is built quite a lot like one. It is the poodle that keeps the shedding down.
