I just got this pup (2 months old) and am wondering what your thoughts are on its color? I was told that it is an apricot but I thought apricots are in the orange/red tones. This pup looks more like a yellow tone to me but not light enough to call it a cream. Also wondering if there's a possibility for the color to fade into a cream in the future. Interested to see what others think!

I would say light apricot, with white touches, and that clearing to cream is very possible.

Cute puppy. Looks cream to me but between my computer screen and the lighting and equipment you used to take the photo, it could be apricot.

Apricot abstract and could fade to cream depending on if she carries the silver gene. It’s not really totally understood right now and the only test that is out there is not 100% but mostly accurate.


I had my girl tested with embark to see if she carries the silver gene and she does have one copy. So my girl is a Apricot covered blue so will fade like a blue over time instead of fast like a cream would. What will be interesting to see is will she still retain a shade of apricot or will she look like a cream 🤷🏻‍♀️?

Thank you for all your input! If she is an apricot abstract/ apricot with white patches, does it mean her parents are likely of two different colors? And are the markings likely to remain even when the color fades?

The parents might have been abstract or parti too, but sometimes white markings skip generations.

The white markings on your girl are probably permanent. However, you might have trouble discerning them if she fades to a light cream. There won't be enough contrast see the white against cream.

I think the color depends on who your talking to :)

The average person on the street won't ask what color, instead the will ask, "is that a golden doodle?"

This average person also only knows if 8 colors, and if you ask what color chartreuse or coral is, they won't know. Keep it simple kind of moment.

Then you might come across some "dog people" and they might say, "cream or light apricot"... Say you get to talking at the dog park.

Then you come on here and you get the super detailed and technical color... So, if you go to a poodle meet up you sound like you speak the language lol.
