Here is ROSIE - she is one of the funniest poodles! She will grab hold of your leg with her front paws, trying to prevent you from leaving. It's the darnedest thing ever!! She will give you eye-to-eye contact and is very aware of her surroundings and what you are asking of her. I would think she'd be an awesome hunting dog - that is, if you dare take a "poodle" out wit the guys hunting :) With the right training, I bet she'd be just as good, if not better than the other breeds out there.
Rosie is a Darcy / Reuben puppy-girl. Rosie is a Huge girl - a True Pony sized Girl! We compare Rosie to Big Betty. Both Betty & Rosie are exceptional poodles - It is very hard / if not impossible to find the size and color of these two girls. For more information on BIG Betty, just click on her 'tab'.
Rosie stands 29" tall and weighs 83 lbs. She thinks she is a 'lap-dog' and is always there wanting your undivided attention. Almost everybody who meets Rosie, thinks she is a boy, becasue of her build. Rosie is a very stout, girl and very strong.
ROSIE - She is a true Pony-Girl!
As you can tell in the photo above, Rosie is a very happy girl and loves to play ball with the other poodles. She also enjoys playing tug-o-war, she is so graceful when running in the yard - a delight to watch. Rosie is so much like her mother, Darcy, using her front paws 'to tap you' all the time. :)
