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.

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: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Dewey is a very sweet, very small little guy that needs a home. He is good with other dogs of all sizes, with how small he is any other dogs in the home will need to meet him to ensure they are good with him also. He weighs right about 4lbs so he really is a tiny little guy. Because of his small size we are wanting an adult home, teenagers can be fine. We would prefer a home with another small dog for companionship. Dewey is about 90% housebroken and will have occasional accidents at this time. A patient home is needed for the little guy. Neutered, current on shots, microchipped.

      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.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Spike is a fun little guy! He loves to go everywhere with you, whether it be in the car or just accompanying you around the house- you’ll never be lonely again! Spike loves to cuddle with you at night and will burrow right under the covers with you!! He loves to chew on bones and other doggie toys, or just lay in your lap and be loved. Spike is a real lady killer so watch out ;) Spike is great with other dogs, but he would not really be appropriate for a home with young children as he doesn't like to be grabbed.

      Breed: Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky (medium coat). Molly is a super happy girl who loves to play with other dogs, kids, and her family. However, we have had mixed results with small dogs/cats, so it would be good to meet small fur housemates. Molly is the perfect medium size dog who knows sit and shake...although she might just be gr abbing your hand so you will pet her :) Molly is shy with new people, but very adoring once she knows you. She isn't crazy high energy, but needs regular exercise and a yard with at least a 6' fence- while generally well behaved, when startled Molly is an excellent escaper.

      Sherman

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Little dog, big personality! Sherman is a spunky guy who will happily accompany you on adventures, or hang out to nap and cuddle. He is an alert barker, and will let you know about potential danger, but settles down quickly and responds to redirection on the trail. Sherman can do well with dogs, but has had issues with cats. He would prefer visitors to ignore him until he decides to greet them; he's not into grabby hands, and would do best in a home without small kids. With a calm, secure home he can relax in, Sherman will be 15 lbs of devoted companion!
