Most breeders are consistent with the health of their dogs, but you have a few out there who breed dogs purely for the sake of making a buck, and they take little consideration of the health of the resulting puppies. While most issues are not readily noticeable on the outset, when the dogs start to get older serious health issues become an expensive problem for dog owners. If you add a Blue Ridge Goldendoodle puppy to your family, you’re guaranteed to get a happy and healthy dog. Goldendoodles are one of the new designer breeds that are on the market today. Now, personally, I'm not a big fan of the designer breeds, as in many cases people will purchase purebred Golden Retrievers and Poodles and breed them, calling the puppies Goldendoodles. But, this is not the case, as you will not get an even ratio of dogs that have the same characteristics. The results from this breeding will be of some pups appearing more golden retriever, and the rest appearing more poodle. In the scenario, this breeding did not result in the desired designer breed result. It resulted in a mix breed litter. Whitney,I know this was written a number of years ago, but after recently getting a goldendoodle and seeing your comments telling people to just go to the pound to get a mix if you want a mix I think its just rude and untrue!if you go back and look at the history of purebred dogs, where did they come from?Many of them were intentional cross breeds . a designer dog of their day if you will?What is a goldendoodle?An intentional cross breed to get a desired result.

You will never get to see where your new puppy was born nor will you get to see the parents. Just try to 'wade' through all the junk on their website. I don't know anything about that breeder, but they made a poor choice spending the money on the dog which probably shows more of one breed than the other. Most "breeders" of this mix breed dog are not producing a litter with uniform looking puppies. The first and closest "breeder" of lab/poodle mixes and golden retriever/poodle mixes is not going to be found in the U. S.
