What does a Goldendoodle look like when full grown? This is one of the first things that come to mind when someone is considering adopting a new Goldendoodle pup. It's hard to imagine what that cute little puppy is going to look like a year from now. How big will she get as an adult? How long will her coat grow? How much will she weigh when she's full grown? All of these are good questions and fortunately, it's possible to have a good idea of what she will look like as she grows.

When purebred poodles and Golden Retrievers are bred together the puppies are called Goldendoodles. To have a good idea of what the puppies will look like as they grow, you need to take a good look at the parents. The average weight of the parents combined is usually what the pup will weigh when full grown. It's difficult to say what color their coat will be because it can vary and be a combination of the parents or one parent can be more dominant than the other.

However, the coat normally averages between four and eight inches in length and it's usually short around the face. When the Golden Retriever is bred with standard size poodles, they usually average between fifty to seventy-five pounds and when bred with a miniature poodle they average between twenty-five to fifty pounds. It varies so much because it will also depend on the size of the Golden Retriever.

What does a Goldendoodle look like when it's bred by the second generation? This is when a Goldendoodle is bred with a poodle or another Goldendoodle. When two Goldendoodles are bred together, the pups usually closely resemble their parents in every way. When bred with a poodle, they normally average having about seventy-five percent of the characteristics of the poodle and only about twenty-five percent of the Golden Retriever.

So, what does a Goldendoodle look like when full grown? Since they closely resemble their parents, all you need to do is learn a little about the parents and you'll have a good idea what to expect a year from now. It will also give you an idea of what type of temperament they'll have as well.
