COAT COLOUR GUIDE   

RED
Red is expresses through the E-Locus allele. All dogs that carry ee-locus have a "yellow" coat that can range from dark ruby red, to a medium peachy apricot to a light golden cream.  We refer to our darkest puppies with ee locus as "red" which can sometimes be called ruby.  We produce solid and abstract (white markings). 
Below is a small sample of our red Adelaide Cavoodle dogs.  

APRICOT

Apricot puppies part of the yellow/red family.  Our apricots are lighter at birth than the dark reds and have a peachy, apricot colour to their coat. 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.  We produce both solid and abstract apricot puppies.

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.  Below is a small sample of our Adelaide Cavoodle apricot color puppies and what they look like as adults

CREAM

Cream puppies are darker than a white but lighter than an apricot. The can also be referred to as golden or tan. Similar to the cream poodle, the coat clears/lightens over time. Like the poodle, the ears and tail often stay a shade darker than the body.   Below is a small sample of our Adelaide Cavoodles cream colour Cavoodle dogs. 

BLACK  

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

BLACK SABLE

Sable puppies can have a black or red base.  The sable comes from a Poodle that carries a copy of Dominant Black K-Locus, kbr.  When bred to a Black and Tan or Tri Cavalier King Charles we can sometimes have Black Sable Puppies.  Our sable puppies are usually born black and clear (a kind of lightening) to almost a silver, with age.  Sable puppies often have tan highlights or tickling through their coat from birth.  Some black puppies may only have a small amount of sable on their legs and around their eyebrows and ears. One hair follicle can have 3+ shades, so even a haircut can make them change colour.  These puppies have unique and interesting coats, as their colour usually lightens or darkens as it grows into an adult.

BRINDLE 

Very similar to sable, brindle puppies coats often lighten or darken over time.  Where a sable has a more solid colour base, the brindle has a more tiger striped look when they are shaved.

PHANTOM ABSTRACTS 

We  produce black phantom abstract puppies with white markings.  Some may refer to this coat colour as Black and Tan and if white is present, others may refer to it as a Tri.

CHOCOLATE 

Chocolate coats are sometimes referred to as brown.  This colour can  range from a light brown to a rich liver colour coat with or without white abstract markings. 

We currently breed chocolate Bordoodles but are planning in the future to breed a line of chocolate Cavoodles.
