An F1 is considered the original Borderdoodle (aka Bordoodle). F1 Borderdoodles seem to consistently exhibit the very best qualities from the Border Collie and the Poodle, while seemingly leaving behind any negative traits. The perfect dog!
Because this a newer breed and not yet several generations deep, the offspring pups may vary in their appearance and personality depending upon the breeder's choice of Borderdoodle mates. For example, if you were to breed an F1 that exhibited more traits towards the Poodle with another of the same, you will likely end up with a dog that leans more towards a Poodle.
This is not necessarily a bad thing at all. However, the ideal goal seems to be to seek out pure 50/50 attributes of the Border Collie and Poodle. Of course, years down the line and many generations deep we beleive that the Borderdoodle will end up being F2.
This is how all of the other breeds in the world have ultimately come about.
Whether you're choosing and F1, F1b or an F2 (sounds like fighter jets), we think you'll be very pleased with this rare and exceptional dog!
An F1b Borderdoodles are sought after for their more poodly appearance. Their coat may be a bit more curly and they may be more likely to be hypoallergenic and non shedding. Of course this means that their personality my lean a bit more towards the Poodle.
