He is a highly intelligent miniature/standard pooodlex, But no doubt all poodle! He has a nice sturdy frame but slightly larger than a mini. He probably weighs about 25#s. He is a incredible companion dog. He is not crazy about male dogs but when adjusted for a while might get along. A female dog would probably be o.k. LOVES LOVES LOVES PEOPLE AND SHOULD GET ALONG WELL WITH WELL BEHAVED CHILDREN.The possibilities with this dog ARE MANY. He would be a good obedience candidate because he just wants to please. He has a beautiful head, and does have a full tail.Lets put it this way he stood for me for 3 hours yesterday to groom him and play with some dog hair color. And when I was finished he thought I was his best friend AND WANTED MORE. WHAT A SWEET HEART, HE WENT AROUND THE STORE AND GREETED EVERYONE. IF YOU ARE A AVID OUTDOORS PERSON HE WOULD BE A FUN DOG TO TAKE ON HIKES. He is in GREAT PHYSICAL CONDITION and has been fully vetted. About 2 1/2 years old. No cats please.
