Ever since Shelley was a little girl her allergies have given her problems. They are sometimes so severe she has to go on strong medication just to function on a daily basis. Her eyes can water, nose will run, skin will break out into hives and she has even been known to have a few migraines that were induced by her allergies. She is definitely what you would call an allergy sufferer but when your youngest kid suffers from allergies you do as well. There have been a number of events or vacations that had to be canceled or cut short because her allergies flared up and we simply could not enjoy ourselves. Just last year we actually had to get rid of our dog because she was so allergic to its fur.
This year, we decided that we were going to find solutions to these problems rather than just continuing to narrow down the things she could do and enjoy. The first step was to replace the puppy that we lost with something that was hypoallergenic. We ended up purchasing an Australian Labradoodle puppy from a breeder because they are almost completely hypoallergenic due to the fact that they do not shed.
This specific type of lab or doodle is what we were looking for because these dogs were selectively bred over the last 30 years to bring out certain attributes that were only found in other dogs. For instance, a typical Labradoodle is very intelligent and playful yet has a good enough temperament that you can leave it around kids or babies. Even as puppies they are renowned for being quick learners and having patience when dealing with their family members. This is especially important to anyone who has kids in their family.
The Australian lab or doodle breeder we purchased our puppy from was excellent as well. They are called Highlands Australian Labradoodle and I feel confident recommending them to anyone in the market for an amazingly cute and cuddly hypoallergenic dog. Once you learn the history of these dogs and you hear their dedication to raising them in the right tradition you know that you have made a wise decision in selecting from them.
Even the act of browsing the company website to look through puppy pictures was a big family event for us. Each of us have our own opinion on which dog was cutest so we took a vote on which puppy we wanted to try and look at. It is very helpful that the breeder puts up this information in advance so people can prepare themselves for what the litter will look like. We weren’t specific on which color we wanted but more so the size of the dog and whether or not it looked fun. When I told my children that Australian Labradoodle dogs tend to be call home they were upset thinking that they could not have fun with this dog. I told them that the dog will be a lot of fun but it won’t be overly rambunctious like some other dogs and that is a good thing. All in all we cannot wait for this new dog and we are so excited for it.
