Ive had quite a lot of interest when meeting other dog owners in how unusual Tilly looks for a cockapoo. Since a puppy she's always favoured the cocker look. She's maintained this but now has more of a poodle build.

Ive attached images from when she was 10 weeks old and also from now around 4 and a half months now that her puppy coat has grown out.








Her puppy coat, though fluffy was still quite short and her adult coat even smoother. She is however starting to grow wavy as it gets longer so we're excited to see how it will develop. She has also become more red than apricot and her snout much longer, like a poodle. I just wanted to put these images up and hopefully keep adding to them to make prospective cockapoo owners more aware of the coat type and that it exists in F1 cockapoos.

She is an F1; her mum was a working cocker and her dad was a miniature poodle, but we must admit when first considering getting her we were put off because she didnt look like what we assumed was a cockapoo. Admittedly it was partly down to our lack of research, it was only that one of her litter mates had the longer curly coat that we went through with it.

I feel bad that we even thought like that now because she is such a lovely addition to the family and I hope others aren't put off by the same thing.

For those interested she is low shed. You will find fine hairs on her bed and on clothing every now and again but compared to other breeds it is very little and we are very grateful for that :D

If anyone has similar coat types I would love to see them.:)

The lovely Lola is like that, I am sure Ruth will be by soon, and she can post some pics of her chocolate girl.
Tilly looks like a very sweet happy girl!

Tilly is beautiful - I love the flappy ear picture :D

I'm sure that she's going to end up like the lovely Lola with a fluffy bum and a smooth chin.

Thank you so much for making the point that you love her just as she is. Tilly is a very special girl and a member of the select group of scrumptious smoothies :D

Yes, DEFINATELY a Lady Lola Lookalike! I think you'll be surprised at just how long and shaggy Lola's coat is now. :D

Tilly is gorgeous and I think you make an excellent point that she is just as beautiful a cockapoo as all the others, long hair, short hair, black, red, white, apricot, parti....whatever! :D

She is lovely. My own experience of flat coat cockapoos seems that they look almost all cocker apart from some long slim legs! Still beautiful obviously but I agree most people have the shaggy coat in mind when it comes to poos. Once you have your puppy I can't see that anyone would ever be 'disappointed' in how they look. You love them what ever. :)

Aw she is very beautiful. Her coat is quite different to Lola's. Tilly's coat looks really smooth and glossy. Lola's is fluffy and tufty now.
