History Miniature and toy poodles were probably bred down from standard poodles, although the toy poodle may be distantly related to the Maltese. Unlike the standard poodle, which was developed as a hunting dog, the smaller poodles were always companions. They were popular with European royalty, including France’s Louis XVI and Queen Anne of England; both sizes ware depicted in seventeenth-century paintings. They also performed in circuses in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They were first brought to the U.S. at the end of the nineteenth century but did not become popular until after WW II. All three poodles are almost identical except for size.
