What are F1b Mini Goldendoodles?

F1b Mini Goldendoodles are a popular variation of Doodle dogs, characterized by their unique parentage and desirable traits. The term "F1b" denotes the specific breeding lineage of these charming pups.

Initially, F1 Mini Goldendoodles are the result of crossing a Mini or Toy Poodle with a Golden Retriever, creating a first-generation offspring. However, F1b Mini Goldendoodles are produced when a first-generation Mini Goldendoodle is bred with a purebred small Poodle. In some cases, the other parent may be an English Cream Retriever.

What sets F1b Mini Goldendoodles apart is their genetic composition, inheriting 75% of their genetics from the Mini Poodle and 25% from the Golden Retriever. This genetic makeup differs from the original Goldendoodle, which boasts a 50-50 split between Poodle and Golden Retriever genetics.

One of the primary attractions of F1b Mini Goldendoodles is their potential to inherit the non-shedding qualities of the Poodle, along with the added benefit of a smaller size compared to the F1 Mini Goldendoodle.

What do F1b Mini Goldendoodles look like?

F1b Mini Goldendoodles boast a distinct appearance primarily influenced by their Mini Poodle genetics. Their curly, non-shedding coat, often in the classic Golden Retriever reddish hue, is a hallmark feature.

These charming pups typically weigh between 15 to 25 lbs, smaller than standard Goldendoodles and akin to Miniature Poodles in size. Their floppy ears contribute to their adorable demeanor. Notably, F1b Mini Goldendoodles frequently inherit hypoallergenic traits from their Poodle lineage, making them a favored choice for allergy-sensitive individuals.

How big will my F1b Mini Goldendoodle get?

Your F1b Mini Goldendoodle is likely to remain relatively small, typically reaching a height of around 13-17 inches. The size of your dog can be influenced by the size of its parents, with smaller parents indicating a higher likelihood of a smaller adult size for your pup.

Many dog owners specifically choose F1b Goldendoodles for their compact size. If you desire a very small dog, consider selecting a female puppy, as females tend to be approximately 1-2 inches shorter and 5 lbs lighter than males in most dog breeds.

Inquiring about the size of previous litters sired by your puppy's parents can provide valuable insight into the potential size of your pup. Remember that size is primarily genetically determined, so if your puppy has half or full siblings, their sizes can offer an indication of what to expect for your pup's eventual size.

How much do F1b Mini Goldendoodles cost?

F1b Mini Goldendoodles are highly coveted, with prices typically starting at $1,975 from reputable breeders. Depending on specific preferences such as color or gender, this price may vary.

However, it's essential not to focus solely on price. Responsible breeders who prioritize health testing and provide loving care for their puppies may charge higher fees. Remember, you're investing in a lifelong companion, so consider the breeder's reputation and dedication to ethical breeding practices.
