Really like these dogs after seeing one that the owner of my local vape store owns. White male, very handsome. I like the no shed part especially. And yes, Poodles are super smart. My wife had a Poodle when we first got married, she had 3 legs and was blind in one eye from a car accident (not my wife haha). I had a python that I would put out in a tree to get some fresh air and sun occasionally. A few times I went inside for a few minutes only to return to no python, my wife said GiGi had a good nose and to see if she could find her. She found it both times! The second time was pretty amazing. She followed the scent to the back chain linked fence and I thought that was it, but she kept her head directly at a shrub in a wooded area about 25 yards away and would not look away. I thought "no way" but jumped the fence to see and I'll be damned if I didn't find the snake on the ground wrapped around the base of that shrub. Blew me away!
