Concerned..Doodle going ginger..

Post by Oscar2011 » 06 May 2014, 19:42

Our lovely cream boy is turning ginger :shock: , He has always had a slight streak along his back and behind his ears, but now it seems to be taking over his body :shock: .

What should we do? :?

Short of a hair salon and foils, perhaps 'nothing'? :)

He looks cream to me :D I think you can get special white shampoos but I assume these have some kind of chemical to make the fur white?

Roma is chocolate, with blonde bits in her beard and eyebrows, white hairs through her coat, a white stripe on top of her head and cafe au lait feathering on her legs :roll: She's unique :D

He looks pretty cream to me. Sam is still quite dark brown on the body with ginger bear, feet and ear tips and the odd white hair speckled about. I love the unknown when it comes to their coat.

Deffo classed as "apricot" ....... apparently that is the recessive colour of white poodles so if one parent is a white poodle the apricot colour will come out in later generations.

Ben's dad was a white poodle and seven of the pups were creamy/apricot and three were black like mum.

When little, Ben looked just like a yellow Andrex puppy, but he developed into ...well ... a Doodle!!!

Nothing wrong with ginger doodles, although Murphy is classed as apricot.
