Poodle T-Shirt - Despite their image as fancy dogs of leisure, poodles were originally bred as water dogs. Their fanciful sculpted haircuts were designed to allow them to move easily through the water while keeping joints and internal organs warm. The name was originally Pudelhund, puddle-dog more or less. Poodles come in three sizes, Standard, Miniature, and Toy. It's hard to say which this one is, since there's nothing around him for scale. Fun fact: in Faust , Mephistopheles first appears in the form of a black poodle, just like our friend here. The dog lover in your life will adore this beautiful poodle t-shirt!
