Cavapoochon dog is a triple crossbreed hybrid of miniature or toy Poodle, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Bichon Frise. All three parent breeds are equally responsible for this varied color variety a cavapoochon gets.
We have all seen puppies with different colored fur. But what makes some puppies colorful and others not? Well, it is actually down to the genetics of their parent breeds. For example, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel will most commonly have lighter tan or apricot fur with black markings on its muzzle, chest, and back. On the other hand, a Poodle will have a more varied coat of colors and patterns because they come from many different dog breeds.
Some poodle puppies might have primarily white fur with tan markings, black or brown coats with tan markings, and others could even be tri-colored (black, brown, and white). Similarly, Bichon Frise puppies will often inherit their parent breed’s color in their apricot or tan skin with white markings around their face, ears, and paws.
Standard colors in Parent Breeds of cavapoochon
There are dozens of colors and patterns that can be found in these mini dogs’ parent breeds – hence the reason for so many different coat colors.

Cavalier King Charles spaniel Coat Colors
A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel pup’s coat color will be predominantly light tan or apricot fur with black markings. Occasionally we might see a cavalier king Charles Spaniel pup with brown fur, but this is far less commonly seen than the tan and apricot coat colors.
Bichon Frise Coat Colors
A Bichon Frise pup’s coat color will be predominantly white with tan markings around their face, ears, and paws. Occasionally we might see a bichon Frise pup with black fur or one that has a tri-colored coat of black, brown, and white fur.
What determines a cavapoochon’s coat color?
There is no one answer to this question, as every cavapoochon’s coat color will be determined by the genetic makeup of their parent breed. There are dozens of Cavapoochon colors and patterns because their parent breeds come from many other places with many additional colored fur coats.
Cavapoochon colors can be described in a few ways :
