Ok I have an f2 labradoddle and my friend has a full golden lab. "If" and its more of a "not likely but would be intresting to know", what would puppies be?

Labradoodle x lab. Is this a trick question? Or are you expecting 'doublelabradoodle LOL they will be GAWJUS!xx'?

Mongrels. With, I assume full hip scores, elbow scores, and all other tests related to both labs and poodles.

Sorry, pressed post too soon and then lost rest of answer. That on it's own seems a bit strong. confused

They would be cross-breeds. Don't do it. Breeding really isn't something to be entered into lightly, and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Yes, you may get lovely pups (all pups are lovely), but you will also be putting an enormous physical strain on the bitch, and there can be many many problems. Enjoy your dogs as they are!

PS Labs are yellow. Retrievers are golden grin

Would a double labradoodle be a labradoodledoo? Or a labradoddle?

Sorry - couldn't resist!

It would be a F2b I think

more likely to have lab coats than poodle.

Backyard bred mongrels.

labradoodledoo. Roflmao grin

Otherwise agree 100% with jooly & DBF wink

Especially re the "golden lab". I think that bit upset me most of all grin

Well if I bred him with the cockapoo that we dee if in park I would call them cockapoodledoddles grin
I wasn't planning on breeding him, his going for him chop in Sept but the owner of the yellow labwink asked and I have no clue about breeding so wondered.

grin at 'labradoodledoo'...

When we moved here, one of our new neighbours asked my DH if we would like to mate one of our 'golden labs' with his black labrador. My DH calmy suggested he didn't mention anything about that to his wife...

(I have Golden Retrievers, I am very passionate about them and the breed in general and although I do occasionally breed I am very against irresponsible breeding)

So the consensus is labradoodledon't?

Sorry - I'll stop now!

Actually I met a dog yesterday at a motorway service station who probably was a mix like this. The owner said he was a labradoodle, but he didn't look like any I've ever seen. He looked like a lab mainly, but with a wavy ridge down his back and an odd tail. Mongrel, really. I know that these crossbreeds are only half a step away from being mutts (and I have a cockapoo myself) but this one didn't look cute like most of them do, hence the crazy prices and rampant possibly dodgy breeding going on at the moment.

My mother told me today about my cousin's dog which is a DaschundXLab.
(Couldn't picture it myself, the logistics of the matings or the outcome)

Apparantly it was an accidental pregnancy. These things happen.

"The dog was from a breeder." mum said." That shouldn't happen." says I.
Even worse a registered breeder. They should definately know when their dogs are on season and not allow any accidental meetings.

It has a dodgy paw/leg (deformity)

Do you think she's been given a Fairy Story Dog, or is she telling us a yarn?

I saw the weirdest dog ever last week - some sort of cross between an alsation and a corgi/dachsund! Basically, it was a large Alsation with tiny legs. It could hardly walk. Wondered which breed mounted which!

clam, tom was a labradoodle with a wirey coat very much like u describe. there is wide cariety of coat types for labradoodles purely down to the x-breeding.

clam did you know German shepherds can carry a dwarfism gene, so they look like this!

When I was a child our neighbours had a German Shepherd/Corgi cross called Ted, he was a lovely dog, very gentle.
