COAT COLOUR GUIDE   

RED CAVOODLES

Red puppies are the darkest of the litter.  We produce solid and abstract (white markings).  Red puppies are sometimes referred to as ruby colour puppies. 

Below is a small sample of our red Adelaide Cavoodle dogs.  

APRICOT

Apricot puppies are lighter at birth than red puppies. Similar to the apricot poodle, the puppy coat starts off darker but lightens over time. Like the poodle, the ears and tail often stay a shade darker.   This shade is sometimes called caramel. We produce both solid and abstract apricot puppies.

 A black coat will be solid black with no tickling from birth.  We produce solid blacks and back abstracts with white markings.

SABLE

Sable puppies can have a black or red base.  Our sable puppies are usually born black and clear (a kind of lightening) with age.  A puppy that is born with a red sable  base is one that has a red base instead of black and lightens to an apricot colour with dark tips, usually around the ears and paws.  Sable puppies often have tan highlights or tickling through their coat from birth.  These puppies have unique and interesting coats, as their colour changes as it grows into an adult.  This shade is sometimes referred to as brindle.
