The apricot color of the Goldendoodles comes mainly from the Poodle parentage and this comes out as having a light orange color with some subtle hues of pink. This very much makes these pooches look like teddy bears, thus, their popularity with pet lovers.
The appearance of your Apricot Goldendoodle depends on its Poodle parentage but in general, Apricot Goldendoodle has a round, broad skull with long muzzles, and dark, oval-shaped eyes, dark noses and drop ears. If it takes after their Golden Retriever parents then it would have a long, muscular body with a thick-coated tail.
Given that the Golden Retriever used for breeding only comes in one standard size, the size of the Apricot Goldendoodle is dependent on the Poodle parent, which can be either toy, miniature or standard.
A Toy Apricot Goldendoodle could grow from a petite 10 inches to at most 16 inches tall; the miniature one from 16 to 20 inches; and the standard one from 20 to 24 inches.
The weight for Apricot Goldendoodles across all size variations is typically between 15 to 80 lbs.
The Apricot Goldendoodles’s coat type depends on the percentage of the pooch’s Poodle heritage and comes in three varieties: straight, wavy or curly. Simply put, the higher the Poodle genes, the curlier their fur is, and the degree of shedding would be lower.
This degree could be classified by what they call generational traits. An F1 Goldendoodle has genes split 50/50 between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. They usually have straight hair and have moderate shedding.
An F1B has 75% Poodle strain, thus, the fur is curly and sheds very little, making it very hypoallergenic. Further classifications relating to the percentage of their heritage include F1BB, F2, F2B and F3.
