Well, I guess that's reassuring for the most part. Some of those though, are really creepy to me like Addison's. Arrrrgggg. Most all breeds have something though.

I adore poodles, and will always have one. My old boy had alot of health issues (including Addisons), and died at 9.5. He was just the best dog ever!! Really cemented me to the breed! My new guy is fantastic! So much fun, so smart, and just a cool little guy (he is an almost 4m old standard). I will stick with this breed despite the health issues. There are a LOT of health issues though! Going with a breeder who tests and knows the lines is the biggest thing! No lines are free of issues though. Its worth the risk to me though.

Is it mainly the Standards that are very unhealthy, or do all poodles deal with a lot of health issues?

Minis have their share of health issues, but it is mainly standards that bare the brunt of them. Esp, immune issues, those are the worst in the breed. Minis are generally hardy, fun little dogs!!!

Of the three I'd say the Miniatures would be the healthiest, followed by Toys than Standards.
