As the name suggests, the Labradoodle is the result of crossbreeding between a Labrador and Poodle. Even though the crossbreed was developed in 1955, it was not until the late 1980’s that it became popularized. The aim of Labradoodle development was to pair the trainability of the Labrador with the low-shedding qualities of the Poodle. Since its inception, the Labradoodle has been used as a guide dog, as well as a house pet. The Labradoodle has a short coat of curly hair that ranges in color from white to black.
