Hello, I think I've decided on a toy or miniature poodle as our second dog. We use to own a standard and now own a shih tzu called Louie. Louie doesn't like bigger dogs, so another standard is out of the question. We were at the beach today and I met two poodles and chatted with the owners, such a lovely time out and poodles do steel my heart. So now I've decided I'll be looking out for puppies. I did find the cost rather a lot and have never paid out so much . Our poodle was a rehome and paid £200 and Louie our shih tzu is from Portugal and we paid 150 euros. So a shock to find out how much poodles are going for... Arrrrah!
