Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (medium coat). MAGGIE #20241 is hanging out at the shelter waiting on that special person that thinks she's pretty special too... She is a Labradoodle who will make a great companion for you....

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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Kiefer came into the shelter on 10/1/2015 as a tiny puppy, and he is expected to be a medium-sized dog when full-grown (26 lbs. at most recent weighing). He is very lab-like in his behavior. He is loving, affectionate and playful. Kiefer thinks he's a lap dog... He is very curious about everything. Kiefer has the most adorable big floppy ears. He is a real gem! Kiefer also plays very well with other dogs! From Kiefer's foster mom, Linda: This is Kiefer's story. He was brought into the SPCA shelter in October 2015. He was adopted/fostered twice and brought back. We took him in last summer and have discovered his trust, loyalty, and protectiveness. Kiefer's a bundle of energy looking for someone that will walk/run with him, play tug of war or just scratch his belly. He does well with both small and large dogs and doesn't seem over troubled by the cats. . I will share some of that as we find him a home that needs him as much as he needs them. Yes we love him and we are holding on to our choice to keep fostering, so he needs a forever home. I can picture it...so can Chris.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). This sweet girl is Addie. She has been at the shelter for 6 months and could really use a foster or adopter. Come meet her today at the Lake Jackson SPCA. Poor Addie has been at the shelter for almost 200 days. We took her out for her Longtimer's Lunch Club adventure to Petco and to the Wayside Pub for lunch on the patio. She was the life of the party at Petco rolling on the floor for belly rubs, was sweet and patient laying by the bench on the patio while we ate, and loved riding in the car. Addie would make the perfect pup in any home. She loves children and has the sweetest disposition. Please come adopt Addie! ~Jessi & Julie # LongtimersLunchClub

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Chaia came into the shelter on 11/9/2015 and weighs 52 lbs. I took Chaia out of the shelter today for a couple of hours. Tomorrow will be her 300th day in captivity. Someone who is looking for a great couch potato type dog who doesn't bark, loves to play in water from the garden hose, rides well in a car, is motivated by loving touch and is very, very intelligent needs to adopt this sweet girl. She's kennel trained, doesn't jump up on people and is great with kids. She was so full of energy at first but calmed down after the first 10 minutes. She absolutely loves people. #bringlovehome

      Breed: Rottweiler-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lake Jackson, TX
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed. Boudreaux is a sweet 56 lb. dog who is good with kids and loves other dogs. He barks at his foster cat siblings, but hasn’t done anything more. His foster mama thinks he’s not really sure what they are. He was scared and timid in the shelter, but relaxed and gained confidence even on quick car rides outside the shelter. He is timid about new experiences, but just needs patience. Boudreaux is a total sweetheart. He is currently in foster, receiving treatment for heartworms. He will be ready to go home, healthy, to a new family in late June. He has been in the shelter/in foster since 7/6/2015. This dog will steal your heart if you give him the chance.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed. Lucky is a spry little dog – you’d never guess he is 18 years old! See the video for proof! He loves scrambled eggs, loves to go for car rides, and he has a favorite purple sweater (shown in one of the pictures). He has some vision loss, but it doesn’t slow him down. His favorite car rides happen in his foster brother’s truck. He can even jump up on the running board and then the seat on his own. He gets excited when he sees us get the leash and loves to go for walks, prancing around like a young pup....who says you have to act 18???
