I hope this doesn't turn into an argument. As a lurker/ infrequent poster i really enjoy the positive caring environment of this forum. Regardless of Napa's genetic tree, he is a beautifull darling dog and I am sure he brings you alot of love and happiness.Paintsmeblue said:I'm really not going to get into this argument again.
I am NOT impuning any breeder, as you know, Jac. But the fact remains established and not hidden (anymore) that the TP and RM Labradoodles have and have had multiple breeds in them. Linda (gracielou) has Australian good lines and is a reliable source on that.Jac said:It was always my understanding that an Australian Labradoodle came from the Australian lines and I always heard/assumed they were infused with at least 6 other breeds...sounds like that information may not be correct, judging from Napa's line. I know of Napa's breeder, she is a good and reputable one.
You seem to have gotten the jest of the info, and making a pretty good decisionJorja'smom said:Thank you all for your replies. Seems there is much more to the distinction of the two then I originally thought. The Australian doodles seem to be so much more expensive which surprises me since they are more then just labs and poodles in the line. To be honest, it sounds like it would be best to have the American doodle. Are the Australian doodles mixed with a Cocker Spaniel to make them smaller?
I'm spending more time trying to find a doodle but it's so much fun looking at all the puppies online. Now, if only I could get a whiff of puppy breath from my computer I'd be one happy doodle momma. :lol:
