What does f1, f2, f3b, multi-gen mean?
A first generation (F1) goldendoodle is the result of the breeding of a golden retriever and a standard poodle. This generation has a wavy coat and will shed a little (much less than the retriever parent).
A breeding of two first generation goldendoodles results in a litter of second generation (F2) doodles. These pups will have the greatest variation in their coats. A quarter of the litter will look more like the retriever. Another quarter will look more like a poodle and half of the litter will be like their parents with the traditional doodle look.
When you breed a doodle back to a poodle it adds the “b” or back-cross to the generation i.e. F3b. Litters that are back-crossed to poodles tend to have curlier coats, do not shed and are more likely to be hypoallergenic.
Once you get to the fourth generation and beyond they are often called multi-gens. The coats of these pups are typically very wavy to curly, but its a softer curl than a poodle coat, so the upkeep is a little easier. Throughout the generations – doodles maintain the “all about you” loyalty and affection of the golden retriever.
How much do your puppies cost?
Our multi-gen puppies are $1,700 for boys or girls.
How do I reserve a puppy from the next litter?
Start by sending us a note on our contact us page. Include information about your ideal puppy, and your family. Do you have other pets? Then once we have confirmation of pregnancy we will send out emails to everyone that has inquired. Then we create a waiting list on a first come first pick basis. Your name gets on the waiting list once we have received your $200 deposit. Your deposit will be refunded if we do not have enough puppies to meet the number of deposits received.
do you ship puppies?
Not in the traditional way. Because we live in Georgia, most of the year it’s too hot to put a puppy in the cargo area of a plane. We have been known to bring a pup in the cabin of the plane to their new home. This requires you to purchase a ticket for the transporter (usually Ron takes the pups) and you have to purchase an airline approved carrier.
We have also met families that live a few states away – ask us how to make this happen!
