Mixed Coat

4 Mos. F1 doodle with mixed coat.. Thick curly doodly coat on his chest, tummy and tail, wispy fine hair on the rest of the body.. Any thoughts doodle paw-rents? Anyone who had the same thing when their puppy is younger?

  • First of all, he is adorable.  Such personality.  My AnnaBelle had a crazy coat through the puppy stages.  My Mom kept saying "when are you going to do something with that hair".  She had more cow licks than you could count.  After the puppy stage and coat change, her coat is just pretty normal doodle coat.  

    • when did your dog change to the normal doodle coat? :)
  • F1 doodles tend to be mixed coat.  My late Rosco had curly thighs, wavy back/body, straight wispy legs.  It will keep developing into adulthood.

    • thanks so much adina!
  • Could still be puppy fuzz in there too. Our breeder told us it takes about a year for the adult coat to come in. She introduced us to one of her dogs from last years breeding (same sire and dam). His coat was gorgeous and his head was still puppy fuzz. Our pup is from an English golden and F2 breeding. He is 6 months and has the curls down his back & tail but puppy fuzz everywhere else. Crazy transformation, its fascinating!3367118591?profile=original

    • hi connie, thanks a lot! but my pup's coat looks very dry and coarse :(
    • yours looks so healthy and soft! ❤️
    • That looks so much like Luna's puppy coat did :)

    • Luna's coat stayed baby soft on her chest and neck her whole life :) it looked a lot like Beau's.

      Does he have a double coat? If so he'll actually be cooler in the summer if you don't clip him short.

  • Yes! Very similar to Luna. More curl and facial hair but they look so much the same!
