The Parti Goldendoodle is a type of Goldendoodle that has a colored coat that consists of 50% white and 50% any other solid color.
However, when Goldendoodles have coats with less than 50% white, or you find that there are small white patches on a solid coat, then they are referred to as Abstract Goldendoodles.
There are different names when it comes to the combination of patterns a Parti Goldendoodle can take up, depending on the ratio of white versus other solid colors. A Parti Goldendoodle will sometimes be referred to as mismark, parti-factored, chrome, or abstract.
Are Parti Goldendoodles Rare?
Parti Goldendoodle are one of the rarest types of Goldendoodles. Recessive genes are the ones responsible for the Parti Goldendoodle color and the solid color coat. This is why it is extremely difficult to find Parti Goldendoodles that aren’t multi-generation or Multigen Goldendoodles with a lot more Poodle genetics.
To get a parti-colored variant, you will have to breed ones carrying a rare recessive gene with other recessive genes. One dominant gene when expressed may mess up the color of a Parti Goldendoodle and mask the recessive genes.
This expression will make the color prediction of your Parti Goldendoodle very difficult without doing an extensive DNA test. This is also why it is difficult to find two Parti Goldendoodles that look alike.
How Big Do Parti Goldendoodles Get?
A Parti Goldendoodle can get up to 20 to 24 inches tall and weigh between 50 to 90 lbs. However, the parents of your Goldendoodle will affect the size and weight of your dog.
When it comes to the coat, the coat length gene determines whether the dog has a short (S) or long (L) coat. However, although the long coats are recessive, all Goldendoodles carry two genes for a long coat (L/L) because both their parent breeds are long-coated.
Furthermore, there are three different types of coats when it comes to Parti Goldendoodle including:
These Parti Goldendoodles tend to resemble the Golden Retriever, but they are also very rare. They come with an attractive appearance; however, they are more likely to shed.
These come with a more Poodle-like appearance, and because of their teddy bear-like appearance and less shedding, they have gained a high interest and popularity worldwide.
Wavy Coat Or Shaggy Coat
These are the most common ones, and they have a perfect balance of both parents. In addition, many people prefer them because they are much easier to groom, unlike in curly coats.
