Airedoodle Colors

This page is designed to help our buyers understand the colors of our Airedoodle puppies. 

Airedale Terriers are born black with tan muzzles and paws.  Over the first year of life the tan increases until there is only a dark saddle left.  That saddle may be black or grizzle. This color changing cycle is also true for our Airedoodles. 

The Standard Poodle adds to the color factor too.  Certain poodle colors change as the dog comes to maturity.  This is true of blue poodles which are born black and turn to their blue shade over the first two years of life.  Adelaide and Stella are blue poodles. This changing cycle also effects our Airedoodles. 

Here is an example of what our pups look like as they mature.   Please remember that each buyer chooses the haircut of their choice for their dog.  Some cut their dogs like doodles, some poodles, and some terriers.  Don’t judge any of these dogs by  their haircut.  These pictures are being provided to help you understand the colors.  All of these dogs were born at Wicket Gate Farm.

                                                              This pup was born with so little tan presenting that I was not sure he was a black and tan at first. When he was 5 weeks of age you could just see it on his eyebrows and feet. At 4 months of age his color was really coming in.  He matured to be a great array of color. 

This is Adelaide’s pup, Fenway.
