Black-and-white image of a white poodle standing on a table, and a man in the background. The dog is facing the viewer, and its fur has been cut so that its body, the top of its head, and its feet are covered with long, fluffy, white fur. The fur on the top of the dog's head has been gathered into a band, and there are bands wrapped around the fur on the dog's ears. There is a thin band around the dog's neck and there is a brush in the bottom left corner of the image. There is a man in the background who has short, dark hair that is parted on the left side of his head, and he is wearing a dark suit.
