Labradoodles are notorious for having their color change or fade as they grow into adult dogs. The Poodle genetics present in Labradoodles typically result in fading of the rich coat colors seen in labradoodle puppies. Fading can cause the adult coat to be several shades lighter or even a different color. In addition the coat varies in hue from the skin outward, such that clipping the coat very short can result in a much lighter shade of color.
Lauderdoodles cannot guarantee the availability of a specific combination of color and coat consistency, as there is wide variation between litters and breeding parents. As always, we believe that personality and temperament are much more important factors in picking a life long Labradoodle companion for your family, but we will do our best to match your style preferences whenever possible.
