This is us
We have been so fortunate to have had Australian Labradoodles since 2006, before most people even knew what an Australian Labradoodle was!
When we were a young couple we had a dog that we rescued and didn’t get much history on when he joined our family. I ended up being allergic to him and I had to be constantly taking allergy medicine. I was forever, and I mean forever, vacuuming dog hair up. It was a labor of love. Ironically, the dog was allergic to everything as well and was tortured with allergy shots and medicine. Once we had children, we lived in a home divided, mostly because our dog didn’t like kids. Many years later, when he sadly passed away, I said, “Never again! No more dogs.”
After a while we realized what a void we had in our home without a little buddy following us around.
We have three sons.
All kids need a dog to love and to be loved by.
I began researching online for a breed of dog that fit our family. I grew up on a farm and understand breeding for temperament. We wanted a dog that was clear of the health issues that we could test for, which meant a finding a responsible breeder. We had many friends that had American Labradoodles and they were so adorable. Some of their dogs shed and some of them were ninety-five pounds. I kept Googling, “hypoallergenic, non-shedding labradoodle” and “bred for temperament and multigenerational for size” and I discovered the Australian Labradoodle.
We soon had our Gracie girl flying to us on an airplane to much fanfare!
It was one of the best decisions we ever made as a family.
I have been praising the breed for so long that when two-thirds of our boys left for college we decided to do what we have talked about doing for thirteen years, breed Australian Labradoodles and help other families know the joy that they bring to their people.
