Our Mini-Goldendoodle Dog

I’ve written in the past about Hypoallergenic Dogs for Families with Dog Allergies.  We were deciding which type of dog to get at the time, considering that we have mild dog allergies in our family.

My sister’s family has the same problem.  They got a mini-labradoodle about 4 years ago.  It’s a Mini-Poodle mixed with a Labrador Retriever.  It weighs about 17 pounds.  We’ve always loved her dog.  It’s very sweet.  It’s a true lap-dog and will sit on your lap for hours. 

We wanted a slightly larger dog (medium-sized) that could take long walks with us.  Sometimes we go 5+ miles and we worried that a lap dog just wouldn’t make it.

In the end, we called the farm where my sister got her dog and inquired if they had medium sized dogs.  We ended up getting a mini-goldendoodle: a mixture of mini-poodle and golden-retriever. 

We named her Mango and she’s expected to grow to about 30 pounds.  She’s really perfect!  She can walk far and absolutely loves to go out hiking with us.

She swims.  She’s friendly with other dogs, people, and most importantly, kids.

My family hasn’t had any allergy issues with Mango either.

If you have allergy issues and are considering this type of dog, or any other type of dog, it’s highly recommended that the allergic person spends some time with the pup to see how they react, before buying.

Good luck if you’re in the process of choosing a dog.  We love ours and can no longer imagine life without a canine companion!

The Labradoodle was an almost real time success and numerous breeding choices were used to provide a mixture of varied size of Goldendoodles by using general sized poodles as well as smaller varieties. at the present this breed stays quite widespread and is particularly useful with people who end up with having allergic reactions as a result of the incontrovertible fact that many Goldendoodles are typically hypoallergenic. additionally they carry on function handbook canine as well.

    I have a Full sized Golden Doodle named Mango!!! She is abnormally small given the sizes of her parents. She only weighs about 40 pounds! Still thinks she is a lap-dog. Never has biten anyone. Always gets on her back legs to give hugs as people enter the house. Golden Doodles are the best dogs ever!

    That’s funny Jeff that you named your dog Mango too. It’s a perfect name! Our Mango is about 40 pounds too. Now she’s almost 5 years old. We’re crazy about her. The other funny part is that everyone in the neighborhood knows her. When she’s sitting at the front screen door, people we don’t even know will call out, “Hi Mango!”
