Why a rare white CHOCOLATE poodle. "she is creme on the outsite, but has the chocolate nose, gums,caramel eyes, eye rims, and nails" Good grief.
Come to find out she not only has a rare white chocolate poodle, but a poodleXbichon cross that she has bred to the white chocolate poodle. BTW the poodleXbichon she called a rainbow dog because he was born red/white, went to "Tan" and is now changing to chocolate(ad's words not mine).
I feel sorry for people that think they are getting something "special" but really just spend lots of money on a mutt.
I know this is an old thread but I was just on this other site looking at poodle info and I came across about the white chocolate poodle - POODLE COAT COLORS: SILVER & SILVER BEIGE
so i googled white chocolate poodle and this came up & I use this forum so I said I would leave this here for people to see - apparently you shouldn't breed brown to cream red or apricot...
Never heard of that before - anyone else know this or bred between these with this happening/not? Is the problem with showing them - there are so many colours I wouldn't have thought the combo would have been a problem?
Just curious to see if anyone has more info on this please and thanks!
I have a creamy light apricot visually ( some say white, some say light apricot, I can't get a straight one on that ) - I would have bred her down the line with a brown no bother - or another with a brown parent as she has brown bloodlines too...
Any help would be great thanks
