Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum

Hey everyone I have been following a few of the coat discussion posts and I too have questions about my doodles coat. 

Cooper is our goldendoodle. His mom is a very red looking golden retriever (almost looked Irish setter red)  and his dad is a standard red poodle. 

He recently shed out all of his long fur and is now sporting a short, very wavy coat. (My vet told me not to worry that it was a coat change, especially since shedding all his long fur out he hasn’t shed anything since) He has a lot of curl around his face, such as his ears, neck, face. He has started getting longer hairs where his beard would be but doesn’t actually have a beard at 17 weeks. Does anyone think his fur will grow longer and him be pretty shaggy looking (I’ve had my heart set on him growing a good shaggy/wavy coat) And will he end up having a beard? 

I can try and upload pictures from the time we got him to about a month ago. Sorry nothing too recent and he is sleeping so I’m not going to poke the bear (because he is a spaz when awake! Lots and lots of energy)

Please excuse all of the punctuation and grammar errors, typing super fast.

I saw the mom but not the dad. Is there a reason?

I was just curious because aside from the long nose, I'm really not seeing the poodle.  Karen mentioned the open face which I was not familiar with until I clicked on the link, so it appears that is the case with your pup.  Again, he really is cute :)

Hi Nancy :)

I have an open faced goldendoodle f1b. Similar to Cooper, who is a cutie pie! She looks like a mini retriever, but does have many poodle qualities.  Mine actually has the poodle nose. But there are many of us here who have these types of pups.  It’s just genetics.  

Here is a pic.  This is Miss Nala :)

Thank you Christine for the picture of Nala, she is beautiful.  I had heard the term open face before but I had no idea what it meant until yesterday.  I have to confess, when I would see a pic of a pup like Nala or Cooper (?), I immediately thought "just another person who got scammed into thinking they got a Goldendoodle or Labradoodle".  Now I know better. :)  

Check out Lori, Daphne, Lucy and Pippa's page for more pictures of Pippa, but I think yours will end up a lot like her Pippa.  I think Pippa is a Double Doodle.  

Pippa is an F1B goldendoodle.

And has that same type of ear, lol. 

Cooper is really starting to get curl to him. ♥️
