Is there a king poodle?” is a question that has been asked for centuries, but with the introduction of the Poodle King, it seems that there may be.
This is a hybrid breed of an American Standard poodle and a miniature poodle with many different dog breeds mixed in.
It’s important to note that this dog cannot be registered as an official breed since it is not purebred, but if you’re looking for something cute and fluffy, give this mixed-breed pup some attention!
The history of the King Poodle
It’s been bred from many breeds including, but not limited to, the German Pinscher, British Bulldog, and French Poodle. The King Poodle was supposedly bred in response to the Westernisation of China in order to preserve Chinese culture.
The history of King Poodle is a fascinating one. And if you’re a poodle dog owner, it may be even more so.
But before we get to the story of how this amazing breed came about and developed into what it is today, let’s first explore where its origins can be traced back to.
The word “poodle” comes from the German word “Pudel” which means “to splash in water” (from Middle High German “puddeln”). The original purpose for breeding these dogs was to use them as retrievers or hunting dogs for locating and retrieving game birds or other small animals from water such as ducks and geese; they would grab on to the prey and could be pulled out of the water.
The breed was then used as a gun dog for many years until it was finally recognized as a purebred in 1891 by the American Kennel Club, but also around much earlier dates in other countries such as England and France. It is now known as one of the most popular breeds across the world and is a favorite among many dog owners thanks to its intelligence, good looks, and gentle personality.
The King Poodle is a member of the non-sporting group of dogs that was once used as a water retrieval dog as mentioned before but has now been bred to be a companion dog breed. The history of the poodle is a rich one and the King Poodle is only a part of that history.
Where did the name “King” come from?
There is a lot of speculation as to why the King Poodle was named as such. But one of the most common reasons is because it served as a companion and was usually pampered by those who owned them, though it’s also been said that they weren’t treated very well at all. Whatever way you look at it, the King Poodle is still a beloved dog and has been ever since it was first bred.
There are many different colors and sizes of poodles that fall into the three categories: standard, miniature, and toy. They were originally bred as larger dogs and then those who wanted smaller versions of those dogs would breed them down with smaller breeds such as the Maltese or the miniature pinscher.
Today, though, there are all sorts of different colors and sizes of the poodle with some being sized right between toy and miniature while others are standard size, an in-between version of the two that is larger than a toy but smaller than a miniature.
The King Poodle falls into this category, which is why it can be classified as toy size. Not too big, not too small; just the perfect size to make an excellent family pet.
Now that you know a little bit more about the history of where this breed came from and how it developed into what we recognize today as a King Poodle, perhaps it would be a good idea to go and find yourself one of these dogs!
What you need to know before buying a King Poodle
Poodles come in three sizes: toy (the smallest), miniature (about 15 inches tall), and standard (up to 22 inches). A King Poodle is at least 16 inches high when properly measured and weighs no more than 12 pounds.
Poodles can make wonderful pets because they are bright, active, and playful. They love to run, swim and play games such as fetch with balls or sticks. For these reasons, they are often used in canine sports.
