Labradoodle

Overview

A labradoodleis a crossbreed dog created by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard, Miniature or Toy Poodle. The term first appeared in 1955, but was not popularized until 1988, when the mix began to be used as a hypoallergenic guide dog. Currently, they are not considered a breed by any major fancier and breeder organization. Not all labradoodles are hypoallergenic, but it is a quality that many look for and appreciate in this type of crossbreed.
