Do you microchip your puppies and keep a record of the number? maybe you could call and put you mind at ease.

I called the shelter this morning. They said that this pup has had a tough time. She was rescued by Pike Humane about a year ago from a puppy mill when Jiggsie was only about 6 months old. They placed her with a someone and he just brought her back.

Seems this Doodle had some stomach issues that he was unwilling to accommodate by changing diets. He did not want the hassle of figuring out what was causing her loose poops!

The lady at the shelter said she was a DOLL and while we were speaking, her eight year old daughter was rolling around the floor with Jiggsie.

I wish we were not so far from there. She is a real beauty!

Thank you so much for calling cissy,
I am willing to foster this dog and find her a home, tummy issues are not that big a deal ,,crappy food is normally the culprit
someone has to be out there that would love this sweet girl

Nancy, I know that you could not be sure with this particular dog as there is no telling who the parents are...but, in general, what is the allergy/low shed factor difference in Aussiedoodles compared to Labradoodles?

As with All it is all in how the genes fall with any doodle they are afterall hybrids

with First generations of any doodle there is a 50/50 chance depending on how the genes fall,
normally F1 Aussiedoodles and F1 Goldendoodles are very low to no shed

with the f1 Labradoodles a higher percent does shed

the f1B labradoodles are the MOST likly of ANY to be non shed and allergy friendly in my opinion, even compared to the aust labradoodles (due to the other breeds that are infused in the lines,generally)

Ah! So, to get the highest probability of non shedding, do you breed an F1 labradoodle back to a poodle? Or an F1 to an F1b?

I know, I know, I ask a lot of questions, but my inquiring mind wants to know!!

I love Jiggsie and think she is so beautiful. But hubby and I talked about it and we would be hard pressed to drive 9 hours only to find out he is allergic to her.

I hope someone adopts her soon.

the F1B labradoodle is your best choice with allergies

However, since these are hybrids you truly wont know until you got home, gave a dog a bath and lived with it for few days before you would know for sure,
he could have a allergic reaction due to allergens on the coat from other dogs or the environment it is in now

you should really think about ,,,ok im allergic ,,what am I willing to do in order to keep a dog ,,if i am allergic in order to keep it,,
if the answer is rehome, that isnt fair to the dog or puppy

if you got a pup, you wont know for sure what the adult coat will be like until it gets its adult coat in between 8-12mths old

that is with ANY doodle

Its important to address the what if's before commiting, to a dog

what is he allergic to dander or saliva?? has he been tested?
what is his reactions?

Well, growing up they got a German Shepard and he sneezed and could not be around it. His dad was also allergic to it. They rehomed the dog.

His mom has a Cocker mix, which now lives with us, which he is NOT allergic to at all. But we also make sure to bathe her regularly and keep her well groomed. He has never once had a reaction to her.

Our neighbors down the street got a golden pup two months ago. He was sneezing after petting and being close to it. I will say, though, that they do not bathe that dog well or groom it appropriately.

About 6 years ago, his Dad got a English Collie of some sort that is "hypo allergenic" and has had no problems. And he has always been WAY more allergic to animals than my hubby. He used to take medicine to come visit us because we had two cats.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highly allergic, I would say he falls at a 4. And we know it is not a saliva allergy so that is good!

So, we are trying to be careful about getting a dog. I know that he is going to fall in love with it and if he develops an allergy, he is willing to get shots. But we would hate to go that route if we can avoid it. The only way we would EVER rehome is if he had the shots and was still allergic. And only then would we do that if we knew we had found a loving home. We have two little girls and he would go to the ends of the earth not to distress them. He remembers only too well how painful it was for him to have to give up his Shepard as a child.

So, I guess that is one reason I have not attempted to go the rescue route. If we found a Doodle that was in a foster situation, we would consider adopting because we could meet the dog and he could gauge his tolerance. But that would not be the case in a shelter situation.

We are doing our best to research and be responsible about adopting. We think an F1b is going to be our best shot at getting the right pup for us. Thanks so much for all the valuable info!!

This is GOOD,,just so you know ,,if he isnt allergic to a cocker he shouldnt be to any dog, I wouldnt think
I really doupt you will have issues, with the info you have provided :D
and sounds like he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the dog
which is always what i like to hear :D

I think when his dad got the English-whatever-it-is :lol: that he was excited about the idea that he might one day be able to get a dog, too.

But our timing just wasn't right until now. He is also glad because he does not really like the look of his dads dog, not to mention it is 85 pounds but looks like it is 100+!!

And there is nothing wrong with big dogs, but we really want to take our dog with us everywhere and with two kids, an 85-100 pound dog may not work for our lifestyle! I know my parents would hit the roof if we brought a dog that big to their house for the summer. So we were so happy to find the Labradoodle. We both love the look and the ability of breeders to breed a smaller dog.

Of course, it will be just our luck to get a genetic throw back to some 115 pound lab our dogs distant past!!! HaHaHa!! And you know what? We would love it and deal with it!

Again, this forum is wonderful. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to answer questions, especially you breeders!!
:D

Happy to help any way i can!!! :D

Ya might wanna read thru our sizes page on my site
With Labradoodles NO breeder can guarantee size of a goldendoodle or labradoodle they dont come in mini medium sizes only one size
Even if they artifical inseminate, there can be differnt sizes in the litter and some tend to have long backs and short legs which will result in growth issues

and its impossible to predict when the larger gene will creep in there
some breeders will tell ya anything to sell ya a dog :shock:
just a little fyi,,

Oh, Nancy, I never heard of the long back, short legs problem. What do you do? Is that the kind of problem that you can breed out or is it a wild genetic factor thing that is not predictable?

I was reading on someones website about a problem in AM's that concerns an underbite. It is rare but is one of those wild gene factors that can not be predicted.

If a pup is born with the back./eg problem, is it fixable? Or does the dog suffer from bone issues all its life? It makes me sad to think of it.

I dont claim to breed mini well not labradoodles or goldendoodles,
Aussiedoodle yes i breed toy, mini mediums

avg size of our gdoodles and ldoodles is 22" or less,
if i predict a smaller size i advise people in advance i guarantee nothing,,especially with the l'doodles and g'doodles
These are hybrids no way to predict

Long back short legs come from breeders that artifical inseminate a toy or mini poodle with a larger dog
I dont do that ,,and wont ever do that,if god intends it to happen it will happen naturally
do read our sizes page it will help you understand what i mean

AH! That makes sense. My mother in law had a pet sitting service in LA and one of her clients was a German Shepherd/ Corgi mix. That poor dog was huge with short little legs. She had all sorts of back problems.

Your website is chock full of great info. Thanks!

I know this is totally off topic from the aussiedoodle who needs a home...but an underbite was mentioned earlier in this thread. When we took Dex for his initial puppy check-up I was told he had a slight underbite...it never has been an issue since. However I am curious...what would cause an underbite? Our current vet never even noticed it so I don't know if he possibly outgrew it?
