Looking for a Labradoodle puppy? You are not the only one. Labradoodles are one of the most common types of puppies people ask about at our store. That could have something to do with the fact that a Labradoodle is a combination between a Labrador Retriever (the most popular breed of dog in America) and a Poodle. A Labrador Retriever is known for shedding while a poodle does not shed. A Labradoodle is bred to take the best characteristics from both the poodle and Labrador Retriever. If you would like to purchase a Labradoodle do not hesitate to call one of our helpful associates at Puppies Galore. We will be happy to answer any questions you have about the Labradoodle breed or the purchasing process. We have included some of the most commonly asked questions about the Labradoodle breed below.

A gentleman in Australia bred a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle as a service dog for a blind woman in Hawaii whose husband had allergies. If it had not been for a blind woman in Hawaii whose husband had allergies, we might not have this amazing breed of dog today.
