The Toy Poodle is a breed of dog available in Nintendogs and its 3DS sequel. It is also a mascot of one of the Nintendogs + Cats versions.

Description and Temperament

DS: "French in origin, poodles are highly intelligent and physically capable. They make excellent show dogs."

3DS (NTSC): "This toy breed originated in France and is known for its cuddly, plush coat."

3DS (PAL): "This toy breed originated in France and is known for its thick fluffly coat."

The Toy Poodle is one of the brightest and easiest breeds to train, as it is the second smartest breed in the world, losing only to the Border Collie. It is alert, responsive, playful, lively, sensitive, and eager to please. Originally, the Standard Poodle was bred as a European water retriever and hunting dog, with its name being German for "Puddle." It was then bred down to Toy and Miniature sizes, which would not be as good hunters but are better for pets.
