Sizes and Colors of Poodles

     Like cars, poodles come in different sizes (varieties).  Instead of subcompact, mid-size sedan and SUV, you have toy, miniature and standard:
Toy
10 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulder
Miniature
15 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulder
Standard
over 15 inches at the highest point of the shoulder
     Only the height differentiates them; general appearance, proportion etc. are all the same under the Breed Standard.  Also, note that there are no "teacups" or "royals"; these are gimmicky marketing terms.  Go for solid breeding instead.

     Poodles come in a wide range of colors:
Black
The best are deepest, glossy jet black and nonfading
Blue
The darkest of the grays, often with a blue cast
Silver
The lighter of the grays, definitely distinct from blue
Cream
Almost white, enhanced with a pinkish/beige tint giving warmth
White
A dazzling, sparkling, brilliant white -- when clean!
Apricot
The name says it all, just the color of a ripe one
Red
Deep and rich, a clear red very
distinctly different from apricot
Brown
Like dark chocolate, a rich, solid,
elegant color
Remember, some puppies do not show their adult coloring right away, the coat color clears and resolves as they mature.  In the adult dog, slight variations in the shading of the coat are permissible under the Breed Standard.
