What Breed Is My Dog?

Does anyone know what Poodle breed my dog is? I've been told he's a miniature Poodle purebred, but he seems way too big. What do you think?

Your dog looks a lot like my mom's dog, a bischon frise. Maybe yours is a mix.

The picture looks like my miniature apricot poodle, Pookie, who had his papers to prove he was purebred. He weighed 11 pounds. How much does your dog weigh? The AKC standard fo a miniature poodle is based on height at the shoulders, and for miniatures, it is more than 10" up to 15". Pookie was 12" tall. He died last fall at the age of 17.5.

There's a variety of sizes in these dogs. I used to groom dogs and I have seen that many times. Looks like a poodle to me.

I agree with bichon frise. The tails are not docked. They can be from 8 pouinds to 34 it seems. They are wonderful, joyful, loving dogs. You are so lucky to have one. I have a puppymill rescue, Candie who is a bichon.

Definitely looks like a Bichon Frise.I have one and he is 22 lbs, long and lean. Same face. The tails are on the longer side and curl up.

Definitely a poodle. I have 5 miniature and 4 toys. It looks like mine. Do you have papers for it?

I had a bischon frise that looked almost exactly like that, either that or a poodle.
