Parents

 

The parents to be are both multigenerational Goldendoodles, several generations removed from the original golden-poodle cross. I adopted Dani at 8 weeks from Goldendoodle Acres.

Dani at a 42 pounds is at the lower range end of the range for medium sized. She is from English golden retriever lines, and so has a very stocky build. She does not carry for curly coat at all, so her pups will either have straight or wavy fur.  I intentionally chose her for this characteristic as I love the teddy bear look of goldendoodles.

Dani has a very sweet disposition and is something of a homebody. She is an attention hog who believes she deserves all the attention, all the time. She is always by my side; and follows me around the house. She loves playing with baby puppies, even at 4 months she wanted in the exercise pen with another mom’s babies.

Dani has a white chest blaze with some white on her back paws. Her pups should be some flavor of cream, to light gold to apricot. Some may have a red tint at first, but that fades to apricot with aging.

I would actually describe Dani as “blonde,” but that isn’t an official GANA color. Her first litter however had pups with a lot of white on their faces; they were striking. We have discovered that the longer her fur grows, the more apricot/golden it looks.

Thus far, Dani’s first litter of 7 was sired by Chewie/Jasper and her second litter of 10 pups by Calhoun, both of Fountainfalls Goldendoodles.

Both are GANA Blue Ribbon studs who have proven themselves with many litters of puppies.

Calhoun

Fountainfalls Calhoun is a leggy miniature, sized at 21 pounds. He loves everybody and everything, including the bunnies and cats where he lives. Fountainfalls Calhoun has amber eyes which are quite striking, and he has lovely puppies. I absolutely love his distinct “soul patch!”
