A yellow Labradoodle is a breed of dog that is a mixture of a Labrador retriever and a poodle with a fleece coat. This hybrid dog was first bred in Australia in 1989.
The Labradoodle does not commonly shed. It was originally bred for pet owners with allergies and for use as a seeing eye dog. These dogs are intelligent, obedient, active and friendly. Buyers can choose between an F1 or F1B breed. An F1 Labradoodle is the first generation of Labradoodle, and it is a mixture of a purebred Labrador retriever with a purebred poodle.
The F1B breed was created when the Labradoodle was bred with a purebred poodle, making the dog 75 percent poodle. This dog has curlier hair and does not shed. An F1B Labradoodle puppy also usually costs more than an F1 Labradoodle puppy. These dogs are available with black, white, golden or chocolate coloring.
When searching for a Labradoodle puppy, make sure the stud and the bitch are both purebred dogs. This ensures the Labradoodle is the right mixture and that the dog is more likely to behave and look as expected. The Labradoodle breeders should have American Kennel Club paperwork for both of the dog's parents.
