About the Labradoodle
Labradoodles tend to have the stronger legs of the Labrador Retriever but the coat of the Poodle. The coat is typically non-shedding is produces much less allergy symptoms that are common from dog allergens. Labradoodle colors vary from Black, Chocolate, Silver, Cream and White. Three sizes, Standard (the full size), Medium and Miniature are found to be bred. Labradoodles are more commonly known to have a broad head with large eyes that are set apart, a large square nose, and ears set above eye level.
Labradoodles need frequent exercise on a daily basis. With high energy levels, they will be quite active and need room to play. Known to live up to 15 years of age, the Labradoodle is a dog that most will enjoy as their companion for many years.
