Mine is black with a few little white patches, and I just wondered what other colours you could get, and what is the difference (if any) between white cream and apricot coloured, I'm looking at getting another but dont really want a very pale colour as I dont like to see the tear stain on their little faces, however I saw a little ginger coloured one when i was visiting the place we got flo from and wondered if this was the apricot colour?

Other peoples pictures of their specific coloured pooches would be lovely to see :D

Flo was dark apricot when we got her and has lightened a bit but is still a lovely deep apricot colour. I like the reds and apricots best and it took quite a while to find a dark apricot/gold puppy.

This is Flo at 6 weeks bottom right


and this is her colour now

Flo is so adorable! I like reds and apricots best too. This is the puppy we're getting in a week... he is considered red. I have no idea what he will look like when he's all grown up though.

He is a stunning colour. Maybe he'll lighten a bit as he grows but I imagine he'll stay red or deep apricot. Just gorgeous.

Thank you! I was looking for a puppy his color and was so happy to find him! I wouldn't mind if he changed to a lighter color as he gets older, but I do hope he stays at least a little reddish, or at least buff.
How old is yours?

Flo was 1 in November and the picture in the snow was taken a few days ago. She lightened just a bit and is still deep apricot so I doubt he'll lighten to a buff, as he looks much darker than Flo did when she was a baby. Would love to see more pics when you have some.

This is a picture of JJ now just about 6 months old, he is very similar to Flo by the look of it. You can see from his puppy piccie that his patches have all but disapeared, all except the white tip on his tail!!

I know I am biased but we wanted scruffy chic and thats exactly what we got, well more scruffy than chic actually!!!!

Flo is apricot aged one but was a darker gold to start with. The golds/apricots seem to lighten a bit as they mature. Flo has quite a light apricot face and never has any tear stains at all - she always has a really clean face. I think some dogs are prone to tear stains and some are not. Not sure why.

The terms used to describe coat colour vary and cream is also called buff or champagne. Flo was described by her breeder as gold and gold seems to be used more to describe a cocker colour (my vet called Flo gold on her record book) but 'gold' cockapoos seem to be called apricot and then red for the much darker colouring.

I think the chocolate dogs are lovely and a good colour if you are concerned about staining.

So funny when they are out in the snow and get snow balls in their fur. When we took Flo out the snow balls stuck to her got bigger and bigger and I had to keep stopping to get them off. When we got in I had to put her in a bowl of warm water to defrost her...
