I have exciting news! Yes, there are more Cavapoos on the way! This will be an F1b Cavapoo litter. For those who don’t know that means one parent is a F1 Cavapoo (one purebred Cavalier parent and one purebred Poodle parent) and that F1 Cavapoo was bred to a purebred Poodle. Which technically means there is a larger percentage of Poodle in these Cavapoos.
This is the blend that those with more allergy issues tend to go for. But there are more coat variations within an F1b Cavapoo litter in my opinion. There are the curlier coats that look more like a Poodle coat and hence less likely to shed which is what our allergy sufferings want, then there are variations of the “wavy” coat similar to a regular F1 Cavapoo that can be from super wavy, slightly wavy to wispy and more “Cavalier” like, but all our adorable and unique in their own right.
And this will be from a first-time mom, our own Indigo aka Indy. Indy is the daughter of Lyric and Dickens. She is a parti Cavapoo, meaning her coloring is white with colored spots; think pinto pony or Holstein cow. 😉 Her colored spots are merle, which looks silver-gray with black flecks or patches mixed in too. She’s really stunning, plus she’s sweet and a bit sassy, playful and just a fun dog to have around.
And she was bred to our handsome Bonus! Bonus is a mini Poodle that is also a parti color; white base with black spots and tan highlights (think tricolor). Which means all these puppies should be parti colored meaning “cows”. They could be tricolor, black and white, merle and white, possibly blenheim since Indy’s dad is Dickens and Bonus dad is apricot. It will be fun to see what colors these puppies are!
Parents are OFA normal and have had their genetic testing done through Paw Print Genetics.
Bonus is our smallest male Poodle and Indy is our smallest Cavapoo so I would expect (but there’s no guaranteed) that these puppies will end up as smaller adults.
Puppies are due within the next week to ten days. Indy’s tummy is not huge, but she’s also never had pups so the muscles are pretty tight and she’s a compact dog. I don’t expect a large litter, but she might be hiding quite a few. Who knows!
These pups would then go home sometime in mid to late May. Depending on how many pups she has, I may be reopening the waiting list. Stay tuned to the blog for more updates!
