Old English sheepdog Komondor mix

Hello,

I am just starting a chat to see if anyone has experience with this mix? I just picked out a puppy whose mother is a Komondor and whose father is an OES. I especially would like to know what their coats end up like when they are adults.

That might be a toss up. Just like traits of any mixed breed
you find from the pounds to the rescues, there would be no
breed standard. Good luck

This breeder is not happened to be named Feathers and Fleece, is it?

Because if it is, you need to run (not walk) away.
They have a very bad reputation.

Please see this thread for more details.

No my puppy is not from feathers and fleece. I did see them when I was doing my research but decided to go to a local breeder. I guess I'm glad I did not go with them now....

My breeder has a small operation but has been breeding OES for I want to say 50 years. I actually visited the puppies and met the parents of my pup. From what I could tell they were great breeders and new a lot about OES.

However, this is their first Komondor and their first litter with her. They are excited about how the puppies will turn out but they didn't have a lot of information on my puppies future coat or temperament due to the fact that they have no experience with this mix. I also looked all over the internet to find a Komondor/OES and could not find any pictures or information about this mix. They mentioned that it might have a Sheepadoodle type coat but they aren't positive. Ether way I'm excited to find out! But if anyone has any experience with this mix I would love to hear about it!
I cannot imagine a good breeder wanting to start breeding
mixes. Do they do any testing? Are the parents hips and eyes
checked? What are their bloodlines? Are they listed on the OFA
records?

There are many questions you should ask - these are a good start.

The coat is a toss up - I'd be worried about other stuff myself.

Micah, I bet our Sadie is a sibling of your puppy. Her mom was the komondor and her father an OE Sheepdog. This breeder is a longtime breeder. Has a good reputation. A komondor is referred to as an Hungarian Sheepdog. I would love to see your puppy. We love Sadie and everyone else does too.
