Germany recognized the Poodle (Standard, Miniature, and Toy) as a dog that came from France in the 15th and 16th centuries and likely had the finest in cuisine. The Poodle originally was bred in the Standard size but was later bred down into two other sizes of the Miniature and Toy which were mainly used as pampered pets. The body type of the Miniature Poodle was petite therefore could not be used much for hunting like their counterparts of the Standard size but may have been used to hunt down truffles instead. Miniature Poodles (along with the Toy varieties) were bred primarily for the purpose of companionship dogs. Miniature Poodles are considered the second most intelligent dog breed with skills such as circus performers, tracking, obedience, herding, agility and as assistance dogs. The Miniature Poodle is still a very popular breed for the upper class of the rich and famous. Since the Miniature Poodle is still a very popular breed for the upper class it is likely that they still are given the very best in cuisine. Today, the Miniature Poodle is still a sought after breed for companionship as well as for a show dog.
