Goldendoodle dog's most common colours are white, gold, cream, chocolate, coffee, apricot, red, black, sandy brown, and grey. His coat type varies, as some of them have tight and curly coats, whilst others have silky straight and flat coats. Puppies from the same litter can differ widely in colour and coat.
