We have just purchased a 7 week old Labradoodle. He is jet black. The father was a poodle, the mother a short legged labrador. Our question is most of the litter had curly coats, our Johnny Cash has a smooth coat and a very labrador appearence. Do some dogs just carry the labrador and little of the poodle traits. All the pictures show a very mixed look and poodle face. Do some just look more like labradors? He is very shy, and observant. Thanks for your advice!
