posted by Jim Murphy

Someday my partner and I will consider adopting a dog. Right now our 14 year old cat Millie is  dominant in our house and we don’t want to upset her life at this point. We will consider adopting at a later time. My brother texted me yesterday that after the loss of his dog Mojo last month, he adopted an eight week old Labradoodle. We will also consider this mix breed when the time is right. There are lots of reasons why this may be an excellent choice for us as well as my brother. outlines each characteristic.

The Labradoodle is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a Miniature or Standard Poodle. Like both of his parent breeds, he’s intelligent, friendly, and at least moderately active. He has a shaggy or curly coat that requires maintenance. has made up a chart of characteristics. 5 is the highest rating.
