Our toy's fur looked just like your baby her entire life. She lived fourteen years and always had that puppy coat. Your baby is a doll.

apricots tend to have 'wimpier' (ie more 'relaxed' with less kink and curl. Ie; straighter!) hair than blacks & whites.

Toy poodles tend to have much wimpier hair than the minis & standards too.

Puppies have wimpier hair as well.

So basically, an apricot toy poodle puppy is VERY likely to have rather straight hair! lol! The hair will *generally* get a bit curlier when they change into their adult coat, but still being an apricot toy poodle it's unlikely to ever have a proper curl.

Patches was black and tan and she was a dream to keep brushed and cut. It was nice to keep up that kind of coat. We have a standard poodle puppy now and we feel like rookie poodle owners. We have learned a lot about brushing and combing and coat changes these past few months. I don't have a brush for me that cost what we spent for Lexi's!

Ahhh, yes! Apricots are notorious for coats like that. I had an apricot standard, and her coat was on the thin side and pretty straight at the age of 2 years. It was so easy to groom but not the proper coat at all. My boy, Billy, has a proper coat and the maintenance has been a lot more challenging.

thank you for all your replies. At least we know now, coming from the expert (you guys) that it is just normal for her to have that kind of coat. Her coat is as soft as cotton. We just hope that she maintain her height.

Another question, when he will have his coat change from white to apricot? and what do we expect when he changed in color? like more shedding?

TIA

She looks like a cream color more than an apricot to me. My puppy is a dark cream/very light apricot and seems darker than your adorable baby. I don't know toy color changes. My puppy started out a paper bag color, then turned creamy and now has more orangy color in her ears, back and body than she did when she was little, so she did darken some starting at about 4 months, but she is only 6 months old. I am expecting her to lighten at coat change again, but she is a standard poodle. Her hair is curly and she has a lot of it, but I do a lot of brushing to make it fluffy and straight because I like it as soft as cotton like you do.

Lighter colored poodles have softer hair. Your looks very soft. I am wondering if your baby may be a cream rather than an apricot? Look up cream puppies and see what you think.

She is adorable. Such a sweet little face!

thank you so much @outwest. I have done my assignments and still she's apricot in color. Maybe it's the climate here in our country.

We use Sergeants with oatmeal on her fur it makes the hair so soft and smells good.

i will post a picture soon after I gave her a bath so you could see guys how soft her hair was. The picture posted above is 4 days without bathing her hehehe
