If it's a labradoodle, the temperment and intelligence of the lab and poodle is a wonderful start.  The actual parents of the pup have a huge influence, if he's bright eyed, and you can see a bit of spring in it's step, current condition aside, you'll have a good shot. love'em  and let the joy begin.  Scott

 

Labradoodle

A Labradoodle is a mixed-breed dog created by crossing the Labrador Retriever and the Standard or Miniature Poodle. The term first appeared in 1955, but was not popularized until 1988, where the mix was used as an allergen-free guide dog.Wikipedia

 Does anyone here have this breed and do they travel well?

Our neighbor in TN want to give us one that was dropped off near our home.

It seems friendly and well mannered. Has fleas and undernourished. They are taking

to the vet tomorrow. Hoping he gets a report on his health.

Remember that anything having the word lab in it is a puppy for life......I have friends that have one and she is alot of fun.

I personally since being on the road have stuck to small breeds.....they are more accepted in most parks........I have a Klee Kia mini husky at this time , just rescued her last sunday....or should I say she rescued me , loving the company cant wait to put this rig back out on the road

Greetings, Wayne!

We have had two Golden Doodles for about two years.  We got the mother and male pup together.  Golden Doodles are from a Standard Poodle bred to a Golden Retriver.  We have been blessed over the years with quite a number of dogs of different breeds.  However, these two are to tops!  They are, at times, too intelegent for our good. 

Dude, the male two year old is a ball player and he makes up the games and makes us play by those rules.  Currently there are five totally different games, and the rules are quite different and never change.  He is a sport!!!

Girl Friend, the mother,is the sweetest, most loveable canine ever.  She dotes on every spoken word.  Not long a go, some one in a car next to us at a traffic light said, "She really looks like a person!"

Together, they play as if they were siblings.  We cannot imagine how their personalities would be had we selected only one or the other - such a gift to us! 

Have you read the book "How To Be As Terrific As Your Dog Thinks You Are" by Mort Crim?  (Another true gift)  This book creates many new perspectives on our relationship with our furry-snouted, four=legged children.  Most importantly, Crim points out how we can be far better children of God, if we more emulated the love our dogs have for us.

The Labarodoodles I have known were truly exceptional members of their respective families!  I would say go for it!!!

Sounds like you're talking about a Labradoodle - a mix of Labrador & Standard Poodle.  They are very lively, intelligent, and low-shed due to the Poodle part of the breeding.  Poodles are at the top for intellgence, so this dog should be trainable.  Of course, it sounds like it was abused so that can affect the personality & take time to recover from.

Generally, Labradoodles are nice dogs.  They do require regular grooming.  It would be a good idea for you to read about both Labs & Poodles to get idea of the qualities of each breed.

Love this dog, so adorable but.....I only know two and they are both a handful. One, Cooper, drags his owner all over the place as he is big & strong. The other, my grand dog unrelated to Cooper, is a big, loveable goofus who barks non stop at everything on their street. Interestingly, she also watches animals on tv & barks until animal gone. That is annoying but otherwise a fun BIG dog.

Another thing to remember about any thing with Lab in the name is the trainability issue. They are extremely trainable and want to please. Positive rewards after a job well done works wonders. Sometimes nothing more than a pat on the head a good dog is required. However, one event sometimes sets a standard, so be careful. Train them in what you want and don't change. Labs are sweethearts and poodles are smart as a new penny. Good luck.

Just wanted to add that little can compare with the joy of knowing that you have cintributed to the rescue of a wonderful creature. We have been involved in breed rescue (schnauzer), for many years. We are currently on the road f/t with two, one a rescue dog who we decided to keep. As someone has already pointed out, the possibility that the dog has been abused is strong, and that it was neglected almost certain, so time and patience will be needed. Based on our experience your care will be amply rewarded but overcoming what may have been done to him may take some time.Relatives in UK have a Labradoodle. He travels well, including two trips overseas & back. A sweet smart dog.

It seems these forum members know their canines.  Lot's of good, accurate advice.  Any dog can be a handful, but 95% of the labradoodles/goldendoodles I know are wonderful. They just need some discipline and training, good health care, and lot's of love.  We are getting closer to full timing.  We will travel with a cat and a small mix dog.  The dog, Callie, actually belongs to my son in Baltimore.  He wants her back, so our first big adventure will  be to Baltimore, via Chicago to see daughter.  It will be hard to give Callie up, but our son NEEDS his dog..  But if I decide on a larger dog for travel, a somethingdoodle will be high on my list.  I very recently sold my shares in a busy veterinary practice in Oklahoma.  So after 32 years, I have met a lot of good dogs.  Hope to work in a warm climate in winter months (as a vet)  and play/workcamp in the summer and fall.  Good luck on your choice.

Joel, DVM

We have been full-timing with Ryder our Labradoodle for 1 1/2 years. He is a wonderfull dog who loves to travel and makes friends easily. Ryder adapts to new situations quickly, loves people and other dogs. All the folks I've met who have Labradoodles or Goldendoodles are very proud of their dogs.

We travel with a Golden Retriever and a Standard Poodle. They travel well in the back seat of our quad cab truck when we are on the road. Poodle sleeps with us in bed. Agree with all comments posted here. Highly recommend you invest in obedience training. This will fix the who is walking whom problem with large dogs. We take our dogs on day trips with us and eat at places that have outdoor tables.
