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 many 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
And just lately, there's another variety of F1b becoming popular--the F1b Reverse. This is a Sheepadoodle parent bred back to an Old English Sheepdog. The pups in these litters are 25% Poodle & 75% Old English Sheepdog! They are maturing into larger dogs. So if you love big (wiggle)butts and you cannot lie, that may be the way to go!
