The Miniature Labradoodle was created in the year of 1988. This hybrid breed is the work of Wally Cochran, who is a breeder and member in the group of ‘The Royal Guide Dogs’. They had a client whose husband was in need of a guide dog but was allergic. They were given the task to create a new breed that was smart and gentle but hypoallergenic. The result was the Labradoodle, which is found in many houses around the world today. There are several varieties of the Miniature Labradoodle. The F1 is an even mix of 50% Poodle and 50% Labrador. There is also the F1-B type, which is 75% Poodle and 25% Labrador, which is the variety known to shed very little and is the best type for people who have dog allergies. A mix of two F1 Labradoodles is called an F2, and it is very similar to the F1 type, although it is not as good of a choice for allergic owners since it sheds more. An F3 is the result of a cross between two F2 varieties, and a Multi-Generation Labradoodle is a combination of two F3 or higher generation dogs. This is one of the most popular designer dog breeds, but there are many others as well. The new trend of mixing dog breeds has been on the rise lately, and is the cause of many other interesting combinations.
