My boyfriend and I were on a search to get our first puppy together and became interested in mini Australian labradoodles after seeing one of his coworkers family dogs. Knowing we wanted a smaller sized dog, after seeing one and hearing about the breed, we knew we wanted to get one! My boyfriends coworker is a great friend of ours. His family had recently made the decision to start breeding and we knew they were the ones we wanted to get ours from. Once their dog Lucy became pregnant with the litter, Sherrie always kept me in the loop on updates. Once the puppies were born and a few weeks old, she allowed me to come by since I’m in the area and see them a few times (the more puppy holding the merrier so I kept wanting to visit). She always was so welcoming and showed so much passion about her two Mini Australian labradoodles and all of the puppies. She made sure all of them were going to a great home rather than just accepting anyone and raised them like her own for the first 8 weeks. When we came for pickup, she made us sweet blankets with each puppies name on them and a picture with a saying to hang and frame. Our now 5.5 month old Gouda is doing so well and is the most behaved and lovable puppy. We love him so much and hope to bring him over to Sherries house soon to play with her pups and Goudas sister! If anyone is looking for this specific breed, even if you’re not in the area, I would recommend Coopers Ridge labradoodles!
