  1. Don’t judge a book by its cover — Poodles might look like frou-frou pups, but they were actually bred to hunt. Poodles hail from Germany, where they were called pudel, which is German for “puddle.” While poodles today have connotations of wealth and luxury, they were bred to work. The athletic dogs are excellent swimmers and were used by hunters to retrieve ducks and other birds from the water. They have a “soft mouth,” so they can gently pick up wounded or dead game without damaging it. In France, the dogs were called caniche, or “duck dog.”
