Chocolate Merle Parti Toy Poodle
7 pounds ; 9 inches
Chocolate Merle Parti Toy Poodle “Dixie Chick” is a sweet, gentle, loving little dog from the south , like me! She is quite light colored herself and has not only the Parti gene, but also the Merle gene. That is quite rare to have both! She is a top quality poodle bred by Kathy Belaire from LA. Dixie is a quiet, mannerly little lady just like the Southern Belle that she is named after.
Dixie’s favorite things, (besides cuddling in someones arms) are playing games with her friends.
Although little Dixie may be the dainty little lady, she can sure keep up with the big dogs on the trail and have a blast! Yup, those southern gals are hearty!
Dixie’s husband is our rare Chocolate/Tan Parti Yorkshire Terrier “JackPot”. We are pretty excited to see their tiny YorkiPoo puppies! I expect them to be 8-9 lbs as adults, with colors of chocolate Parti, and chocolate merle – all with pretty white markings! These colors are almost unheard of in a YorkiPoo! She is planning her retirement summer of 2018 to live with my mother in Florida!
A little about the Toy Poodle:
Identical to the Standard and Miniature Poodle except in height, they are a descendant of the Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle is a dainty, sensitive little dog who make perfect pets for a less active person who has time to pamper these natural little clowns and be amused by their quaint antics. Well proportioned and squarely built, the Toy Poodle was bred down from the Miniature Poodle. They are an intelligent breed with a delicate disposition and are very easy to train, the easiest of all the Poodles. Toy Poodles are delightful, good natured, and lively dogs. The Poodle makes an excellent family pet who will adapt to any situation and will try anything an owner wants. Toy Poodles are an efficient choice for 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 get along well with other animals and children. They come in any colors, and have very curly, thick fur. Not only do they have an winning personality, but their hypoallergenic coat is non-shedding. (as are all my dog breeds) Toy Poodles are bright, perky little dogs. Responsive, alert, sensitive and eager to please describes this breed.
The Poodle rates very high as a watch-dog. These dogs are highly alert and will let you know if something unusual is happening. Their Learning rate is also Very High. Toy Poodles are very intelligent. Obedience – Very High. Problem Solving – Very High. They are extremely intelligent and very obedient. There are not very many breeds that rate this high in everything. This is why the Poodle has been such a popular breed for so many generations.
This breed is known to have a very long life span of 15 to 17 years.
