Appearance Of F1 Aussiedoodle
There are some that wonder if Aussiedoodles might shed more than their Poodle parent, but it’s assumed that they’ll have the same amount of shedding as both parents. The F1 Aussiedoodle is bred from two first-generation dogs (F1), meaning one has to be a purebred Poodle and one has to be a purebred Australian Shepherd. The F1 Aussiedoodle is an intelligent, active dog with a coat that is non-shedding and allergy-friendly, making them very family-friendly.
Australian Shepherd is a mid-sized dog, weighing in at around 35 pounds when fully grown. They have upright ears that give them their herding origins. Aussiedoodles frequently carry the “merle” pattern gene, giving them a random splattering of blue and red hair all over their coats. This coat trait is not allowed in the AKC standard for the Aussie, but it’s common in Australian Shepherds bred with Poodles. This will give your Aussiedoodle unique markings such as blue and tan, tri-color (black/tan/white or red/white), sable, or extreme white.

Aussies come in a spectrum of colors that includes red merle, black tri, and solid red. Tri-colored dogs are more sought after than the solid color variety because of the attractive speckled effect that is produced as a result of the merle gene. Aussiedoodles look like balls of fluff when they’re born, but as they grow and their coats tighten (from an Aussie parent), they can shed out to resemble Poodles. So what does this mean for you, the pet owner? Well, you get a pretty good-looking dog that doesn’t shed too much and keeps itself clean. There is also less of a chance that they will have allergies. Merles are often called “ghost merles” because their color is only seen on the puppy until it gets older. This gives them what looks like a ‘ghostly’ appearance. The merle gene causes random patching of the base color throughout the coat, so they can be all one color or have patches of different colors in their coats.
