This is a Brindle Cockapoo Coat colour correct? I ask because that's that what the breeder told me, seem to match coat types on other dogs, and that is what I've been telling everyone.

I've just never seen a brindle cockapoo before... so I'm double checking here. Either way she sure is cute!

Lovely pup :D

Sable means the hairs have darker tips so as the hair grows and is trimmed the dark is cut off and you end up with the dog the colour of the lighter hair underneath.

Molly is sable and was described as black and tan as a puppy (sorry I have no photos)

This is her now and the only darker hair you can see is the longer hair of her ears and tail

Very cute and lovely colour,
It is a possibility that she will completely change colour as she grows, but I'm sure she will be just as gorgeous & cute.

Interesting... I wasn't expecting that she might be a Sable. She did have a lighter colour bum though (I didn't take a picture of that :/)

I looked up some additional information on coat genetics for sable dogs.
http://www.doggenetics.co.uk/tan.html

One other puppy in the group had Tan Points, another puppy was extreme Parti coat and had ears much like my puppy (stripped tan & black).

The other three dogs were Black as far as I could see (black noses & fur) with one being Parti. Trying to remember the parents colour, the mother was dark (black cocker spaniel) and my mind blanks on which poodle I saw was the dad (they have a few poodle sires, all which looked healthy, I'll have to ask which was my puppies father).

Mines basically the same colouring, but with slightly more defined lines (photo is 4.5 weeks old).

How old is your puppy in those pictures TanzyRose?
Tanzy is under 6 weeks old in the pictures. I don't know exact age as they were taken by the breeder. Her color has drastically changed since then. She is 6 months now. She is 3/4 cocker, so she has a smooth coat. Recent picture below :)

That's quite a change, mine is 50/50 so I don't know if her final coat will be straight, wavy, or curly... part of the excitement!

I just love Tanzy's little cocker face. :)

You’ve answered my question about sable as my chocolate pup has blond tips so she might be a phantom although the tips are on the head and feet, not brow
