Toy poodle as 2nd dog ?

Post by gailg » 10 Sep 2007, 14:42

I am STILL thinking of getting a pal for Charlie. An old man who lives near us has a toy poodle and Charlie adores her.
What do you think of a toy as a second dog for us, any problems ?
Best Wishes,Gail

Hi Gail, I have been wanting another dog too, and want a toy poodle.
My husband says NO :evil: ( No to any 2nd dog, apparantly :evil:)
I'm sure if you get one and do the introduction sensitively, then Charlie will be fine.
Good luck.

We had Toy Poodles when I was a child at the same time as having GSD's and Rough Collies and we never had any problems with the size difference. The Poodles may have been small in size but they were huge in attitude and wonderful dogs.

Ditto Donna! :D

Mr Socks has a massive personality and he never has any problems interracting with any of the other dogs that visit our yard. He even rough and tumbles with the GSD that lives there, and he doesn't get on with anybody else!

I think Toys are brilliant and will make a great 2nd dog!

Not the nicest of dogs - in terms of temperament - and can be rather quarrelsome with other dogs.

My brother has a toy poodle and Daisy adores him. They play for hours and although Daisy is faster and heavier, his cornering technique has her floored every time :lol:
