Labradoodle Dog Breed Information and Facts

A standard Labradoodle is a first generation hybrid dog that is created by breeding a purebred Standard, Miniature, Toy or Teacup Poodle with a purebred Labrador Retriever. Labradoodles are now widely used around the world as guide, assistance, and therapy dogs. They are considered a good choice for those with canine dander allergies, as they are capable of possessing the same hypoallergenic coat as their poodle ancestors. The longest eyelash on a dog is 17 cm (6.69 in) and belongs to Ranmaru (Japan), an Australian Labradoodle, as measured in Chuo, Tokyo, Japan. The term “Labradoodle” was first used to describe his Labrador / Poodle cross by Donald Campbell (1955). The Association for the Blind of Western Australia has introduced Labradoodles into their training program. Their first, Jonnie, graduated in November 2010.

History of the Labradoodle

The first Labradoodles were bred by Dennis Zirl, a puppymill owner and breeder from Michigan, USA, who cross-breed dogs of the Poodle, a small spaniel-type breed with a Labrador Retriever. In the late 1960s, Dennis Zirl bred several puppies with a female dog that he had purchased from a pet store. All the pups, except one, were very small, which made it hard to find homes for them. After two weeks, one of the females, born with no papers, grew to 8 weeks old and was introduced to her littermates. She quickly gained weight and started barking loudly. The puppies were frightened, and the rest of the litter died. Since the time that the original Poodle was crossed with a Labrador Retriever, the Labradoodle has been increasing in popularity.
