Dedicated to Breeding a Legacy of Healthy Bloodlines
F1 Mini Labradoodles
F1 Mini Labradoodles
We’re a small family breeder located in Elk Grove, California. We've raised 6 children and have always had a love for dogs. They make the perfect companion and have helped foster an environment of love and responsibility in our household.
Our family has rescued and raised dogs of all types including German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, Chihuahuas. a Border Collie, Poodles, & Labs. There's clearly no discrimination here. We love them all! While they've all been wonderful and special in their own ways, we've lost some of our fur family members to genetic health issues, potentially preventable by responsible breeding practices.
Our family breeds Labrador Retrievers and Mini Labradoodles, focusing on a healthy bloodline, superior temperament, and intelligence. We strive to provide you with a well-bred puppy who could be ideal for a hunting buddy, specialty needs, or purely a loving addition to your household.
Our Dams & Sire are family pets. They're showered with love and attention, well socialized, extremely intelligent, and very well cared for. They live on over 6 acres of beauty and in the very best of living conditions. Prospective buyers are encouraged to reach out to us to schedule a visit. Parents are onsit.
We’ve recently partnered with Kim at Stofer’s Labs, an experienced breeder of over 20yrs
If you're interested in one of our special pups, please contact us. We're happy to answer any questions you may have.

Masha is extremely athletic and obedient. She's a family pet but her trainer says she would have made a great service animal. Masha is a natural mama!
Bentley is half American and half English Lab. She resembles more of her English side weighing in at 75lbs. Bentley has the most beautiful black coat. She's loyal, playful, and loves her cuddle time. Bentley is athletic and great at tracking. She's a full package of beauty and brains!
Royce is a 13lb Toy Poodle who's blessed with amazing genes. He has the good looks, intelligence, agility, and clean bill of health making him an ideal sire. Royce has a big personality. His best pal is “Bosko” who’s a pit bull but Royce insists he's the boss. Royce's first litter produced 10 healthy puppies!

We have been blessed to partner with a reputable breeder, boarder, & trainer of 20 years, Kim Stofer. Kim’s vision and care of her dogs completely aligned with ours. Studs for our full bred labs will be provided by Stofer’s Labs. All studs have completed genetic testing, OFA clearances, & have confirmed pedigrees.
Kim will handle the interest and adoption process of all puppies so we can fully focus on their care and development. More information on Stofer’s Labs can be found at www.stoferslabs.com
We breed F1 Mini Labradoodles. Puppies will be half Labrador Retriever & half Toy Poodle.
F1 Mini Labradoodles are known for being the healthiest of generations due to the possibilities of causing "hybrid vigor". Full bred dogs are known to have more genetic health issues than cross breeds. Crossbreeding two pure bred lines is known to create an even healthier and fitter line than their parents, often referred to as hybrid vigor.
Just as children are known to take more after one parent versus another or be a good mix between both, so will our Mini Labradoodles. They can resemble more of their lab parent or poodle parent traits. Coat type is not guaranteed.
Labradoodles are known for being affectionate, loyal, smart, playful, energetic, and have less shedding than full bred labs. They take the best of two amazing breeds carefully bred into one!
Generally, the weight range is from 15-35 lbs. and size is approximately 14-16 inches. This may vary based on inherited genetics as they are a 50/50 split. They typically have longer life spans ranging from 12-14 years.
First, please call or email us. We love getting to know our potential puppy families. As a responsible breeder, we want to ensure our puppies are going to a great home and that you have all your questions answered.
Once interest is confirmed, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is required in order to be added to the litter wait list. Deposits can be made via Venmo, Zelle, or Paypal. Receipt of deposit and contract will then be emailed to you. Balance is due on the day of pick up or prior to shipment. If you do not find what you want in the current litter, you will be placed on the next litter wait list.
At 6 weeks, we will reach out to you to schedule your pickup date and time.
Puppies can be picked up at 8 weeks of age. Your pick of the litter will be given based on your wait list placement. The pickup schedule will be made accordingly. You must arrange for pick up within 2 days of their 8-week birthday unless special arrangements are discussed. We will reach out to schedule pick up within 2 weeks of their rehoming date. If you cannot pickup your puppy on the official pickup day, you will be asked to pick out your puppy beforehand to ensure other buyers a timely experience meeting their beautiful pup.
Please contact us to discuss details. Pups can be shipped at 8 weeks of age, weather permitting, and vet approved.
No, we kindly ask that you do not. Limited registration will be provided and a non-breeding contract will be required to sign.
No, they are not completely hypoallergenic, however, they are less likely to shed as much as a Labrador. An F1 Mini Labradoodle with a fuller and wavier coat is more likely to have less dander, reducing allergy issues.
Our beautiful pups range from $2000-$2500. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to secure your puppy.
In summary, it’s a series of 5 exercises we do with each puppy beginning at day 3 after birth to day 16. The US Military used this program on wartime dogs and it’s shown to provide several benefits including stronger immune systems, improved cardiovascular performance, & better handling of stressful situations.
We do our very best to prevent genetic health issues but unfortunately nothing is 100% guaranteed. 12months from the date of purchase, if your puppy is diagnosed with a life threatening disease caused by genetics, we will refund you for your purchase or provide you with a replacement puppy from our next litter. We want you to be happy and confident in choosing us as your breeder.
Our parents have been genetically tested by Embark who has provided a litter prediction based on their DNA.
We expect our litters to have short to mid length hair, have a wavy coat, and be low shedding. A puppy coat will transition into an adult coat and may be completely different.
Although our puppies are adorable in every way, we DO NOT breed for coat texture. We breed for health, temperament, & intelligence.
