Q: Cricket is barking?

Do alot of miniture poodles bark at everyone they don't know? Because my grandma's poodle Cricket does this I know she had a hard life and was not happy until after my grandma got her. Cricket is nice to the strangers though after she sees it's okay and she stops barking. I understand that because she is so small only about 13 pounds her proper weight she wants to be a big dog and will bark at other dogs because she is smaller than them. But why does she bark at the people?

i don't think that barking at strangers is a breed specific thing. lots of dogs no matter what breed they are do it. better to bark then growl
