Breeder of the Original Doodle
Legendary Labradoodles is a small family business located in north Texas dedicated to raising and selling Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles which have proven to be exceptional family companions. My husband, Mitch, daughter, Caroline, son, Will, and I view this endeavor as a labor of love, not a job. Both Mitch and I have always been dog lovers, and we sort of stumbled into raising these awesome dogs. And what joy we have found with our Australian Labradoodles!
We were drawn to the Australian Labradoodle because we needed an allergy friendly dog as several of us suffer horribly from all types of allergies. Once we found the Australian Labradoodle, well, we were sold. The adorable, silly lab's personality, mixed with a non-shedding, allergy-friendly coat, is the perfect combination for a family companion.
Before we started raising Australian Labradoodles, we were labradoodle owners. Our first two labradoodles were F1, a cross between a lab and a poodle. While the exceptional temperament and charming personality stole our hearts, we had a mound of vet bills due to health issues. They also shed. Both our allergies and bank account suffered.
Fortunately, as the years have gone by, the Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles's health and non-shedding coat developed with consistency over time. Because of this, we maintain our focus on raising Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles. Our goal in producing puppies is to constantly maintain good, strong healthy lines of dogs with exceptional temperaments while being true to the guidelines established for the Australian Labradoodle.

We live on a 4-acre property in McKinney, TX where our dogs have plenty of room to run free and roam. Both of our children are now adults but still bring their friends home to visit the dogs and puppies. There is a constant flow of people in and out of our house and this busy lifestyle is a perfect fit for the ever-sociable nature of the Australian Labradoodle. Of course, the dogs think that everyone they meet is their new best friend.
As we've grown we have been able to hire wonderful employees who share our love of dogs. Anna and Maiya have been with us the longest and they both have families with multiple dogs and extensive experience with raising dogs. Avery and Ali found us when their families adopted one (or more) of our puppies. Their nurturing skills help us expand our abilities in training and handling each puppy.
Our dogs and puppies have constant socialization as there is rarely a moment when they are not in the company of people. They are even sleeping at our feet while we catch up on emails or computer work. The dogs enjoy the busy schedule we keep and find it their job to take as many rides in the car and get as many snuggles as possible. While at the farm, they love romping and exploring in the great outdoors.
Our dogs bring us so much joy, and this is why we do what we do. We have raised our children to believe that one is to share one's blessings when one has been abundantly blessed. We hope that other families, such as yours, will find much joy in the puppies that we raise. Raising family companions that just happen to be unbelievably adorable, intelligent, intuitive, and non-shedding has been a blessing to us. Wow! What a great job we have!
