Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (long coat).

Overview: The Labradoodle is a mix between the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle. Both breeds are excellent for children and families. The Labradoodle became known in 1988, when Australian breeder Wally Conron crossed the Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle at the Royal Guide Dogs Associations of Australia in Victoria. Conron's aim was to combine the low-shedding coat of the Poodle with the gentleness and trainability of the Labrador, and to provide a guide dog suitable for people with allergies to fur and dander. Sultan, a dog from this litter, displayed all the qualities Conron was seeking and worked as a guide dog for a woman in Hawaii for ten years. Although Guide Dogs Victoria no longer breed Labradoodles, they are bred by other guide and assistance dog organizations in Australia and other places. The Association for the Blind of Western Australia has introduced Labradoodles into their training program, and their first, Jonnie, graduated in November 2010. Labradoodles are now widely used around the world as guide, assistance, and therapy dogs as well as being popular family dogs. The Norwegian Royal Crown Prince and Princess own a Labradoodle.

Country of Origin: Australia
Health Issue: Labradoodles can suffer from problems common to their parent breeds. Poodles and Labrador Retrievers can suffer from hip dysplasia, and should have specialist radiography to check for this problem before breeding. The parent breeds can also suffer from a number of eye disorders, and an examination by a qualified veterinary eye specialist should be performed on breeding dogs. Labradoodles have been known to suffer from progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), an inherited disease causing blindness, which occurs in both Miniature Poodles and Cocker Spaniels. It is recommended that Australian Labradoodles be DNA tested for PRA before being bred. One study has found that UK Labradoodles have a higher incidence (4.6%) of multifocal retinal dysplasia (MRA) compared to Labrador Retrievers. Cataract is common as well (3.7%) but prevalence is comparable to that of Labradors.[17] There is evidence of some occurrence of Addison's disease in the Australian Labradoodle. The Australian Labradoodle Association of America is currently conducting a study to try to determine how widespread the problem has become.
Life Expectancy: 10-12

More About Labradoodle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Anchorage, AK
      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Jacob is still looking for his forever home! This totally awesome guy is practically a puppy, just over a year and a half. He's Karelian Bear Dog/husky/shepherd mix. Intelligent, sweet, gentle, eager, playful, hopeful, and SO handsome are the words to use to describe him. He needs another dog (or dogs) to lead the way, he needs a fenced yard, he needs some guidance from his humans, and he needs love (but don't we all?). Jacob is now house trained and has experience off-leash. His family must be patient and eager to see his fabulous potential. I just can't speak highly enough of him. If you read this and think he may work for your active pack, please fill out an adoption application at www.alaskananimalrescuefriends.org under the forms tab.

      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Anchorage, AK
      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Dash is looking for his forever home! He is about 10 years old, but he is very spry and loves to spend time outdoors, a rural home would probably suit him best. He gets along with most other dogs, ideally, he would prefer a mellow female in the home. He can be shy and needs people that understand him and love him for who he is. Dash loves to snuggle every night and has lots of off leash experience. Once he gets to know and trust you, he'll never leave your side. Dash needs unconditional love more than anything, and he needs a little patience, but he's an excellent boy with a lot of life left to live.

      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (short coat). Dorothea, about 3 yrs is totally awesome, intelligent, and loving but also somewhat dominant around other dogs. She will require someone who knows the breed and how to work with them in a gentle, loving, firm way... Once she's gained your trust, there is nothing she won't do for you. Just takes time and patience.
