Most people say, they don’t look like Poodles at all. Teacup and Toy Teddy Bear Faced Poodles will look like puppies forever. It is all about the adorable round fuzzy face.
These Poodles have a round head and eyes with a short nose and a broad muzzle.
In fact the Teacup Poodles and Toy Poodles if kept in a Teddy Bear Clip when groomed will look like puppies all their lives. A teddy bear clip leaves hair on the face and feet and it is rounded with the scissors. In a traditional poodle clip the face and feet are usually shaved.
Teddy Bear Teacup puppies and TB Toy Poodle puppies are growing in popularity. People who are not fond of the traditional poodle look are falling in love with these dogs. They enjoy the intelligence and clean non – shedding, hypo – allergenic benefits of owning a poodle with a new look.
I have people tell me all the time, I wish my puppy would never grow up and look like a puppy forever. A Tiny TB Faced Poodle is exactly what you are looking for. Teacup Poodles usually weigh 4 lbs and under, tiny Toy Poodles usually weigh 4-5 lbs and a Toy Poodle usually weigh 5-8 lbs. Each of these sizes will be registered as a Toy Poodle because Poodles that are 10 inches and under are registered as Toy.
Teddy Bear Teacup Poodle puppies and Teddy Bear Toy Poodle puppies are a specialty and are as cute as they can be. Yes they are AKC recognized.
I have been breeding Poodles of over 30 yrs, I have found once you own a poodle you will never switch breeds. They are just like having a 4 legged child, a new member of your family. Poodles can adapt to almost any life style. They have tons of individual character, are funny, lovable and protective. Their soft hair is very snuggly and wonderful to touch, and they love to be spoiled.
The Teacup Poodle and Toy Poodles are great for apartment living and people with small homes.
What to tell your groomer. The teddy bear style clip requires that the face and legs be hand scissored into a round shape/symmetrical.
I recommend you look for a groomer that specializes in fluff drying and hand scissoring. Poodles look best in a hand scissored 1 inch long clip. Take a picture with you to show your groomer. Hand scissoring and hand fluff drying is an art, a specialty. Be sure to make sure your groomer is qualified and won’t shave your dog.
