This group is for those of us with puppies or dogs who look far more like the Golden or Labrador halves of themselves than the Poodle half. This group is for us to recognize the Poodle traits that shape our dogs while sharing experiences.

  • Hi all! I am new to the group and can't quite figure out how to start a discussion, so I'm commenting here. We picked our girl River up Friday and we are so in love! She is a Labradoodle (mom) and Goldendoodle mix.

    After joining this group, I am so curious what she is going to look like! I know she is more doodly looking in the face since her head is so curly, but I'm wondering if you guys think she will have furnishings? I'm thinking she may have an open face. As far as her coat, she is not really curly or wavy, just poofy. Her fur is super dense and thick, almost wooly.

    Does anyone have a pup who looked like our River girl?

    Pic 1: 3 weeks
    Pic 2: 6 weeks
    Pic 3: 7.5 weeks
    The rest are 8.5 to 9 weeks.

    Also - please no comments about her runny eye. She does have entropion which was diagnosed a few days before we got her. Our breeder fully informed us and this was made right by her. We are absolutely in love with her personality and decided we will get the eye taken care of. We have a consultation at our vet for it tomorrow. :)
    • I only now noticed the entropian comment. My late Rosco had entropian and an umbilical hernia. All fixed at neuter and never posed a problem again.
    • We are very hopeful it’s going to correct itself! It’s getting better and less runny everyday. She had the curliest little brow whiskers and I trimmed those up which helped a lot!!
    • Entropion doesn't correct itself. It needs to be corrected surgically. It can be very painful for the puppy and can cause ulcerations of the cornea. What does your vet say?
    • My vet says she appears to be growing into it, as many puppies do by a year. We will continue to monitor and assess it, and do not plan on doing surgery unless needed.
    • Agree with J! Also to post a discussion click on forum within this group at the top under the title of the group. Or scroll down below all these comments and click the + sign where the latest discussions are shown.
    • She is darling! I have a feeling she is a slightly "scruffy" but flat coated doodle. In the most recent pics her muzzle hair still looks quite short and her body hair too. I think she might have some crimps on ther head/ears but I think she will mostly have a retriever-like coat.
    • Thank you so much! I'm so excited to see how she changes as she gets older!
  • Hi guys! I am new to this website and this is my first post/interaction! I have a 14 week old F1 goldendoodle puppy who constantly gets mistaken for a full retriever pup! I am curious to see what you guys think compared to what you have seen. The coat on his body is definitely not fluffy, I would describe it as almost wirey. Although, he does have some facial furnishings so I'm not sure what he will turn out like! Can't wait to hear your opinions :)
    • I had the same comments. My Buster is a F1 Standard Goldendoodle. He just turned 7 and if you go to my page you will see the transition. He is now clearly a Goldendoodle and weighing in at 96lbs and 27.5 inches at the shoulder.

Meet Beckett

He is my grand dog.  His mother is a golden, and his father a standard poodle.  He is a little over a year now...almost 80 pounds...looks more like a golden.   He is very smart, and has a wonderful loving personality.F6C9DFC3-040A-4EF6-B052-CE5C208BD7A5.jpeg. EAE545CA-2A5C-48CB-876B-DBB0CE4A2090.jpeg.  A4D13CF0-4B66-453A-8D1B-50B9CF6AE398.jpeg. 606D74C9-2533-4E44-A111-5D13E4C9D608.jpeg. 2CB5D95A-DA63-4252-95B5-FF7D71752872.jpeg.  D4AF1A63-AB8E-44DE-B5A7-B8E9EC9721FD.jpeg

Crazy Tailed Puppy

Hi All,New member here.  We recently brought home our Labradoodle Ronnie (short for Veronica) and she is awesome.  Mother is a poodle and Dad is an English Lab.  She doesn't look like she is very Doodley and hasn't any facial furnishings but has a wave down her back that gets a little wider every week and a crazy curly tail.  I have looked at pics on this forum but haven't seen anything similar.  Any idea how her coat may turn out?20190508_105842.jpg20190508_105834.jpg20190423_104028.jpg

Will my pup grow facial beard/facial furnishing?

Hi All!This is my sweet pup Daisy!! She is my first doodle (an F1 standard goldendoodle pup). She is absolutely wonderful!! Shes 12 weeks old now. I was just wondering if anyone with experience can tell me if you think she will grow a facial beard/ facial furnishings? She just looked so much like a little retriever in the beginning and I THINK I am now starting to see evidence of her "doodling out.  Thoughts? She still does not have a facial beard, however. Does anyone have any educated…
