Maybe try thick royal icing or butter cream and just spoon or spatula it on, don't smooth it, if you need it really puffy let it dry(royal) or fridge it(buttercream) then give it another coat. Hope this helps, or at least gives some inspiration!

I would just build up the fluffiest parts of the poodle--the poof on the head, the tail, and the front part of the body and around the little ankles.

If you want to pipe the puffs, do it with royal or buttercream with a round piping tip--

OR, if you'd like to roll little balls of fondant to make the fluffy texture and attach to the cut out with a little water, that would be cute too!

For the poodles on my fifties cake, I took a pic off the computer of a greyhoud dog, I cut it out, then traced it onto fondant with a exacto knife, I stuck them to the side of the cake, and then took white buttercream and added the fluffy fur.

I made a 1950s themed cake a few weeks ago (see in my pics) and put a poodle on the skirt.
I cut a basic shape out of fondant then rolled tiny balls of fondant and squished them slightly while gluing them all over the body, you could squish them less if you wanted it really 'fluffy'

I made a poodle on this cake, using buttercream. For the poofy parts I used a tip #2 and just squeezed really hard on the bag so the lines came out squiggly and made the poodles curly hair.
