"He knew the society of those small Burma stations -- a nasty, poodle-faking, horseless riffraff." AND "As for social duties of all descriptions, he called them poodle-faking and ignored them." George Orwell, Burmese Days, 1934; the "he" is an upper-class speaker.

An old Raj era Indian Army officer's term for one who flirts with older women to gain influence, or otherwise flirt outrageously with women

The term probably stems from the habit of aging high-born ladies and their ladies-in-waiting in the English aristocracy, keeping small dogs and young men around to pass the time, and to amuse themselves, those poodlefaking high-borns!
