Poodles are very trainable and efficient to the owner who wants an obedient dog. They are affectionate with their family, a little wary with strangers, but still accepting of them. They love to be around family and friends, and should not be left alone for long periods of time. They have had clownish haircuts in the past, in which the owners were allowed to carve any design they wanted into the fur. Today the breed has the standard poodle cut, but if they aren't being shown they can simply be trimmed down. They are thought to be extremely intelligent and very obedient. They come in any solid color, and have very curly, thick fur. Poodles have natural drop ears and a puff of fur on top of the head. Spirited and lively, the Poodle is an energetic and happy breed.
