What Colour is Sable Cockapoo Fur?
Sable Cockapoos come in a variety of colours:
- Red Sable (like the one pictured above)
- Black Sables
- Chocolate Sables
- Red & Chocolate Sables
There are other colours but the above are the main ones, although the list could go on. Variations in colour are limited to the colours the parent Cockapoos have been bred from.
This is one of the fun and intriguing aspects of cross breeds in that the variety and uniqueness of colour blends and markings are a surprise and give character to every puppy.
Sable Cockapoo Puppy
The Colours come in really strong for a puppy and the curls develop as they progress over the weeks.
Do Sable Cockapoos Colours Change?
Coats can fade slightly with age. This is because dogs don’t make quite as much pigment to generate the colour of their hair or fur as they get older. The energy it takes to make pigment is prioritised for other more vital functions in later years.
Secondary factors are a good protein rich diet and also the size of the dog. Smaller dogs tend to fare with the aging process better than larger dogs.
These are minor factors though. Your sable puppy, by and large, will have the same colour and markings when it’s adult coat comes through. And the adult Sable Cockapoo maybe be slightly greyer, particularly if genetically it is breed form the white Poodle.
How much should I pay for a Sable Cockapoo?
The costs can vary depending on factors such as:
- Is the Cockapoo a F1?
- Is the puppy from a registered or amatuer breeder?
- Is the puppy being bred according to proper breeding standards
Breeders do charge more for First Cross Cockapoos. For more information read here.
Cockapoo breeders that have registered themselves with the Cockapoo Club of Great Britain tend to charge more because they are subject to higher standards and inspections. But don’t rule out amateur breeders and some so do a great job, just know what questions to ask.
