Poodle Puppy Colors and Coats
Standard Poodles, Moyen Poodles, Miniature Poodles and Toy Poodles all come in their own range of colors and coat patterns. AKC recognized colors include Black, Blue, Gray , Silver, Cream, Silver Beige, Red, Apricot, Brown, Café Au Lait and White.
In the AKC show ring, conformation dogs are solid in color. However, there are all kinds of great coat patterns that can occur.
Parti coats can have any poodle color and the other 50% is white. If it is less than 50% it is called an abstract.
These coats are controlled by the same genes as a Parti poodle but has less white. Tuxedos usually have white chest, bellies and often white socks. Sometimes it will look like their tails is dipped in white paint.
Flecks of color all over the dog is ticking. The ticking will appear to have tiny white holes in the dogs base color.
Phantom is a recessive gene, both parents need to carry the gene for it to be expressed in a pup. It is a combination of Black and Tan or Brown and Tan. The “tan” portion can vary in color to a pale cream, warm brown, or a reddish brown.
Brindle coats are striped. The size and intensity can vary.
Sable comes in a variety of colors. A sable coat will have black tipped ends to each strand of hair.
This can be any color of coat with a splash of white. Often times it appears as a chest blaze or “socks” on the feet.
Merle genes do not occur naturally in poodles. If a poodle carries this gene, it would have been introduced by another breed at some point.
The patterning is a beautiful, mottled coat which can be accompanied by blue or odd colored eyes. If both parents carry the Merle gene, the pup could be deaf, blind or have ocular defects.
This is a pattern that will produce heavily mottled white areas. This is to be confused with ticking, ticking is spots of color on white. Roan coats are never present in purebred poodles.
Some of these coat pattens can occur together. Such as a Brindle Parti Poodle or a Sable Parti.
