Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Hi! I am new to being a Golden Doodle owner. We just got our little guy, Luke, this past weekend and he is doing great! He is a 50/50 mix with his dad being a Sable Standard Poodle. At first I thought he was just sable, but after looking at pictures, it appears he might have the markings of a Phantom doodle. Any insight would be great! I am attaching some pictures of when he was first born and some that I have taken during this week that we have had him. He is currently a little over 8 weeks old. Also, he doesn't appear to have much fur on his face. Should I expect that to grow in a little later?
Here is a chart I found: http://arpeggiopoodles.tripod.com/poodlecoatcolorsoverviewofallcolo...
Adorable! It'll be fun to see how the coloring changes.
He is a darling pup, but I don't think a phantom. The markings on his eyebrows when he was a puppy made it look like he could be a phantom, but it is not enough color variation. That makes sense if he is 50/50. When a phantom poodle is bred back to a goldendoodle then you have 75% poodle, or an F1b. I had a phantom F1b goldendoodle and currently have a sheepadoodle whose father was also a phantom poodle. They have very definite black and white markings. Take a look at my photos to meet my phantom dogs.
