We breed and raise Goldendoodles at our home in Knoxville, Tennessee. Goldendoodles are known for their friendly nature with people, children, and other animals. They develop close relationships with their families, but consider everyone their friend. They are happiest when they are members of the family, and love to spend time with their people. They often prefer people companions to other dogs, and are perfect for an adult or child looking for a best friend.
A Goldendoodle is the offspring of a purebred Golden Retriever and a purebred Poodle. This breed originated in the 1990’s and has become very popular due to their tendency to shed less-or none at all-which they get from the Poodle side of the family, and the friendly, eager to please personality that Golden Retrievers are known for. However, just as humans inherit traits from their grandparents, sometimes Goldendoodle puppies will inherit the shedding fur of their Golden Retriever grandparents or great-grandparents. Poodles and Golden Retrievers are both known for being intelligent and easy to train.
Goldendoodles are classified into types based on their parentage. F1 Goldendoodles are a cross between a Poodle and a Golden Retriever. F1b Goldendoodles are the offspring of a poodle and an F1 Goldendoodle. Our puppies, being a cross between an F1 and an F1b, are known as F2b Goldendoodles. They normally shed less than F1 Goldendoodles, and are recommended for people with moderate to severe allergies. Goldendoodles, being a hybrid cross, have higher life expentencies and better health than either Poodles or Golden Retrievers.
