What is an F1b Sheepadoodle?
The F1b Sheepadoodle is produced by crossing a F1 Sheepadoodle (half Old English Sheepdog, half Standard Poodle) to a Poodle which produces 75% Poodle & 25% Old English Sheepdog. F1B Sheepadoodles are "non-shedding" and are recommended for families with up to moderate allergies.
- The F1b Sheepadoodle is 75% Poodle which makes this generation the most
- allergy-friendly (although I have owners with allergy problems that aren't triggered by their F1 Sweet Sheepadoodles).
- F1b will not necessarily look like a poodle or have the temperament of a poodle. The 75% poodle in their generation pertains to the non-shedding quality of the hair, which may be poodle curly.
- In every F1b litter there will be puppies that have markings that look exactly like an F1 Sheepadoodle - perfect for families that want a more OES-looking Sheepadoodle with minimal shedding
One difference between the Sheepadoodle and other doodles is that, while other doodles can have pups in the same litter that appear to be purebred with some that look crossbred, Sheepadoodles are very consistent across the litter. The only differences you’ll find across an F1 litter are markings and texture—some coats are fairly straight or flat while others are wavy to varying degrees. The same is true of an F1b litter, with the added caveat that coloring can also vary, markings can be asymmetrical, and coat can range from flat to wavy and even poodle curly.
