The Standard of the Poodle (Toy) is the same as that of the Poodle (Standard) and Poodle (Miniature) except that the height at shoulder should be under 28 cm (11 ins).
Head And Skull:
Docked: Set on rather high, carried at slight angle away from the body, never curled or carried over back, thick at root. Undocked: Thick at root, set on rather high, carried away from the body and as straight as possible.
Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.
