Hi all, this is my first post. Let me introduce you to my lovely F1 mini goldendoodle Indie Rae. She is currently 13 1/2 weeks old 16lbs and doesn't really have any furnishings and a VERY interesting coat. I have been searching all over the forums and internet to see if anyone else has had a pup with her coat, and have not found anything like it. At first glance and in pictures she looks very fluffy and soft, but actually does not have a soft coat. Her coat feels similar to an alpaca's. Except for the hair on her face and ears are soft. She mostly looks like she has a straight coat but the hair that she sheds when I brush her is very tight curl/kinky. Also her hair does not easily brush out and knots up. I've been brushing it once a week. When I give her a bath it takes forever for her hair to soak up the water. It literally just beads off her an is almost impossible to get soaked. But the plus side is that her hair dries very fast. Which doesn't make sense at all since it beads off like low porosity hair. I'm so confused about her current coat type and what it will look like later. I live with my parents and my father has allergies to dogs but not severe. We plan to get her tested, I'm just hoping she is hypo allergenic. We plan to keep her either way no matter the results since we are all very attached to her. She is such a lover and very smart!!! What are your thoughts about what her future coat might be?
