Default Introducing My Purebred Golden Doodle!!!

As a baby...




After a shave down



Here's the story, I was in town today and Foster was with me in the truck..

This lady wanted to meet him so I got him out out, he LOVES people so was quite tickled...

She was saying how much she wanted a purebred Goldendoodle just like him...

I tried to explain they weren't a registered breed and technically are truly just a mixed breed mutt (in the nicest way, not demeaning mutts at all) and that we really don't know for sure even what his mix is (though its not hard to see, and guess Dad was a Poodle) We only know his mom was a Golden... Found pregnant and wandering in an area know for Mennonite breeders, it's assumed she escaped and no one ever claimed her...

She almost acted like a child with her fingers in her ears going lalala..... She was not hearing any of it.. And went on to tell me she has this really nice breeder picked out and he assures her they are pure, and is selling her a pup for only "$1000!" I rather gave up...

So I thought you'd get a kick out of my purebred!

Ps... Never name a dog "Foster" in an attempt to remind yourself he's temporary... It's the ultimate irony when they wind up staying forever!

When shaved down he looks like a Saluki!

Oh man. Lol. I hate people who buy to that 'hype'.

I still wish they bred true though, and that there were good breeders of them (not the Australian puppy mills that have 50 puppies a month). I'd love to have one.

Ditto. They are soo inconsistent and not up to the hypes the 'breeders' brag about.

Huh, my experience has been the exact opposite - and we have a LOT of doodles up here - in that they are one of the mixes that seem to come out relatively consistently in both temperament and physical appearance and they are generally really sweet (although extremely high energy) dogs. I wouldn't mind one at all, if I were going to spend that kind of money on a dog.

There are a few good breeders of Labradoodles...(not familiar with Goldendoodles) And some of those are very nice and consistent. I bet it won't be long until they're a fixed breed.

Anyway, he's adorable...really quite pretty. I bet I'd love that temperament since I love both breeds.

We have a little Parvo pup at work who was surrendered. She's reported to be a French Bulldog/Pit Bull cross, which is reportedly some new "breed" (looks like a weird Boston mix). The original breeder of the pup is trying to reclaim her and says the breed is "almost AKC" *rolls eyes*

Well, since she specify what breed, they are purebred dogs. They aren't part cat, bird, etc
