One of the most fascinating things about Labradoodle puppies is that there’s no guarantee the color of their coat will remain the same from the early years into adulthood. Due to their genetic makeup, their coat color may change once the adult coat comes up. The most common Labradoodle coat shades are chocolate, caramel, red, cream, and parti. But with the wide range of coat shade variations, there’s a Labradoodle coat for every future dog owner.
