Is there a 1/25 scale standard poodle?

As I've gathered the materials to build John Steinbeck's camper from his Travels with Charley... it hit me that I need a Charley!

I do have this little herd of puppies...  If nobody comes up with a better solution, this black guy may be in trouble!

To, try a company called Master Box LTD. they do a bunch of different subjects. Mostly people but they are branching out with accessories.

Theres a company in europe called scheif (or something close to that) that make 1/24 scale animals. I have a couple of their dogs and they are pretty nice. This is the 2 I have

Thanks everyone for your input!  Funny thing is that there were enough doggies out there, even on Shapeways there was NO POODLE!   Now I could do some serious damage on my wallet on both Shapeways and the Schleich sites.  In fact Schleich has Schnauzers!  My sister collects miniatures of those so I will have to place an order.  And of course I'll wind up with a small Noah's ark myself when I place that order. Upon seeing that site I remembered that Hobby Lobby had bins of animals on the next aisle over from the models, so I took a look.  I can buy a full tube of near scale dogs for $9.99 (before the magic coupon) but again there was NO POODLE!   Argh!

I will keep on looking, but if I get to a point of deadline, I can see from the doggies I have in my street rod photo that I can use the head from the black one on the body of the white one sitting in the car.  Only I will be squeamish about decapitating the dogs.   Heck, my heart was pounding hard when I cut the feet off a broken man figure to get a set of shoes for my camper!

Try these guys on Shapeways. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/mininature

Very realistic animals in various scales, and the prices aren't too bad. High, but if it's a match for what you want....

But other than Shapeways I've never seen a poodle in 1/25 1/24 scale. I know there are some dogs out there, but never seen a poodle.

Charley arrived after his long trip from Oregon!  Here's some photos trying him out for size.  Note he's perfect for a standard size poodle looking out the window!   Many thanks to Ryan for sending him along.  As soon as I finish up my '50 Ford Jitney I hope to start the Travels with Charley camper!
