I do know of several very sporty Mini Poodles. Most are up for anything .not dainty foo foo dogs at all.
I'm just curious because you might have more experience than me:
While the poodles I know are extremely athletic, active, and not too dainty for sports in any way, I've NEVER seen one wrestle with another dog or tug. IME they like other dogs, and will try to "play", but it's never really wrestling or tugging.
Writing this, I'm also realizing the majority of dogs I work with are pit bulls or other large bully breeds, so "wrestling" and "tug" might be a little more intense than other breed's owners have in mind.
