Full Answer

Standard poodles have the shortest lifespan of the poodle breeds, and they are also the largest. The smallest and longest lived is the toy poodle. Poodles are a relatively hypo-allergenic breed, according to the SPCAI, and get along well with children over the age of five. They are also a good choice for smaller homes, such as apartments, when they have access to ample exercise.
