What is a Goldendoodle?
A Goldendoodle is the wonderful result of a controlled cross-breed between a purebred male Poodle and a female purebred Golden Retriever. The idea was first conceived back in 1969, when breeders sought a guide dog that could match the Golden Retriever in obedience, health and trainability while being suitable for people allergic to dog hair.
The Poodle turned out to be the perfect match, and passes traits of intelligence, athleticism, a loving personality and great looks along with its non-shedding coat on to its Goldendoodle offspring. A match made in heaven!
What is the difference between an F1, F1A, F1B, and F2B Goldendoodle puppy?
The different letters and numbers simply refer to the breed’s generation and which percentage of origin dog is in that generation.
For example, F1, also called F1A, is a first-generation Goldendoodle with 50% Poodle and 50% Golden Retriever.
Breeding an F1 Goldendoodle with a purebred Poodle results in an F1B Goldendoodle, which is more Poodle than Golden Retriever at a ratio of 75% Poodle to 25% Golden Retriever.
An F2B Goldendoodle is multigenerational, which means that it’s the result of cross-breeding between a first-generation F1 and a second-generation F1B. This breed is still more Poodle than Golden Retriever, but less than in the case of an F1B and slightly more than in the case of a a first-generation F1A.
In other words:
F1A = half Golden Retriever and Half Poodle
F1B = 3/4 Poodle and 1/4 Golden Retriever
F2B = Somewhere in between F1A and F1B
Each generation of Goldendoodle puppy has unique qualities and comes in various sizes!
How come there are different sizes of Goldendoodle?
It’s all part of the fun! Since Goldendoodles get their traits from Poodles, you’ll have the chance to love your Goldendoodle in various sizes from mini and petite to toy and teacup sizes!
Poodles were bred across generations for the purpose of making a smaller variety, so today there are 3 poodle sizes with an additional mini size unique to Goldendoodles.
Regardless of which size dog you’re looking for, our Goldendoodle puppies for sale retain all of the amazing qualities that both parent breeds have to offer.
What is the difference between mini, petite, teacup and toy Goldendoodle puppies?
Our beautiful Goldendoodle puppies for sale come in 4 unique sizes which include the F2B mini, the F1B petite, the F1B teacup and the F1B toy Goldendoodle puppy.
How do the measurements work?
A Mini Goldendoodle puppy grows into a dog that is on average 16 to 20 inches tall and weighing between 15-40 pounds.
A Petite Goldendoodle puppy grows up to be on average 12-15 inches tall with a weight between 10-25 pounds.
A Toy Goldendoodle puppy grows up to 11 inches in height and 10-15 pounds.

How do I reserve a Goldendoodle for sale?
To ensure that all of our Goldendoodle puppies go to a loving home, we perform a puppy parent candidate screening which allows us to collect information on the future family of our pup and makes it easy to provide you with payment information and further details.
If you would like to reserve a Goldendoodle puppy, you may choose from any of Our Available Pups (F1 Miniature — F1B Petites) or reserve a pup from a future litter. Once you’ve been approved and have selected a puppy or made a reservation for a future litter, we’ll provide you with Our Puppy Deposit Agreement via DocuSign, which allows you to sign the Agreement and make your deposit payment via any major credit card or payment gateway (Apple and Samsung Pay, PayPal, Venmo, etc.) all in one step.

What happens after I make a deposit?
Once you’ve made a deposit and reserved a Goldendoodle puppy, you’ll be locked in for your puppy of choice or for a puppy in a future litter. In the case of reserving a puppy in a future litter, please note that our pups are selected in the order by which deposits are made.
You may reserve a pup in a future litter by male or female, although reservations are limited based on whether you are reserving an F1 Mini or F1B Petite.

Our breeding process includes safe and painless Surgical Artificial Insemination (SAI), after which the natural birthing process can take place typically within 59 or 60 days.
What type of health tests are conducted with the Puppy Parents?
That’s a great question, because part of having healthy Goldendoodle puppies is ensuring that both parents—and especially Our Puppy Moms—are in very good health and ready to make healthy and happy offspring. At ABCs Puppy Zs, we perform comprehensive health checkups on both parents and obtain Certifications from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) along with DNA testing for a complete genetics background on all of Our Puppy Moms.
In this way, we do our best to prevent certain health conditions that are known to occur in both the Poodle and the Golden Retriever breed from being passed on to the Goldendoodle puppies. All of Our Puppy Moms have obtained their OFA Certifications which can be found through each of their profiles, where you can also find a link to their Certified DNA Genetics Results as well as their DNA Traits in the case of Our F1 Miniature Goldendoodle Moms.
Can you tell me more about Goldendoodle DNA traits and Genetics?
Goldendoodles are part Poodle and part Golden Retriever, which means they inherit DNA traits and genetics from both breeds. As with all breeds of dog, certain conditions and diseases are known to occur in Poodles and Golden Retrievers, which may be prevented in their offspring by running comprehensive DNA background checks on the puppy parents.
As per the recommendation of the OFA, all of Our Puppy Moms have been tested for the following diseases and traits:
Golden Retrievers, Poodles, & Mini Goldendoodles
Golden Retrievers & Mini Goldendoodles
Poodles & Mini Goldendoodles
Well the Puppy Moms appear to be taken care of, but what about My Pup?

What is a Goldendoodle puppy Health Guarantee?
At ABCs Puppy Zs, the 5-year Goldendoodle puppy Health Guarantee is our way of promising great puppy health, which gives new owners certain options in the case of a life-threatening congenital health condition onset during the first 5 years with their Goldendoodle.
Dog health problems can be very difficult to talk about, because we all fall in love with these pups the moment they’re born and want them to be as healthy and happy as can be. While we stand by our first-rate Goldendoodle Breeding Program, unfortunately, a 100% clean bill of health from birth is impossible for any living thing and we can only dream of never having to worry about the onset of diseases and conditions that may be present from birth.
To give you confidence in your Goldendoodle puppy purchase, we offer a 5-year health guarantee, which, in the case of any life-threatening congenital disease onset, allows to you receive a full refund in the 1st year and a replacement Goldendoodle puppy in the subsequent years of ownership. Let’s all hope that’s the last you have to hear about our health guarantee, and you can rest assured that we have done and will do everything imaginably possible to promote enduring health and a long and happy life for all of Our Dogs!
