Goldendoodle 2nd Gen

In the 1990s, breeders in both North America and Australia began crossing golden retrievers with standard poodles, thusthe Goldendoodle was born. The original purpose of the cross was to attempt to develop guide dogs suitable for visually impaired individuals with allergies. However, their popularity did not end there! Since 2005, Goldendoodles have been moderately used as guide dogs, therapy dogs, diabetic dogs, search dogs and rescue dogs, as they have inherited the poodle's intelligence and the golden retriever's ease of training. Goldendoodles have also become increasingly used as domestic pets due to their affection towards families, friendliness and patience with kids and strangers. There are three main coat types. There is the straight coat, which is flat and resembles more of a golden retriever coat. The wavy coat type is a mixture of a poodle's curls, and a golden retriever's straighter coat. The last coat type is curly, which tends to look more like the poodle coat. A goldendoodle's size is generally somewhere between that of its poodle parent and golden retriever parent.

There are a few different ways breeders are producing Goldendoodles.

F1 = 50% Golden Retriever and 50% Poodle – This is Golden to poodle cross, this is first generation, resulting in healthier offspring. Hair type can be smooth like a Golden, or wavy/shaggy or occasionally a wirey look like a Irish wolfhound (but with a softer feel), they can shed or not shed, pups in the same litter can vary. F1-B = 25% Golden Retriever and 75% Poodle (F1 Goldendoodle and Poodle cross) – This is Goldendoodle bred back to Poodle. F2 = F1 Goldendoodle and F1 Goldendoodle cross – this combination you get the same percentage of Golden Poodle mix as you would an F1 Goldendoodle. F3 = F2 Goldendoodle and F2 Goldendoodle cross Multi-generation = F3 or higher generation Goldendoodle and F3 or higher generation Goldendoodle cross

Olde English Bulldogge

The Olde English Bulldogge is a recently created American dog breed. In the 1970s a true-breeding lineage as a re-creation of the healthier working bulldog from early nineteenth century England was created. Using a breeding scheme developed for cattle, the English bulldogs was crossed with American Bulldogs, American Pit Bull Terriers and Bull Mastiffs. The result was an athletic breed that looks similar to the bulldogs of 1820 but also has a friendly temperament.

Temperament

Olde English Bulldogges are docile, but capable and protective, fearless and athletic, fierce-looking, determined and courageous, bold and friendly around their family and friends, but fearless adversaries to anyone who threatens their masters or property. This breed likes to chew. Rawhides, soft rubber and stuffed toys are unsafe, for they are easily shredded or swallowed whole. Olde English Bulldogges are so eager to please that they may overexert themselves in an effort to do whatever is asked of them. An owner who displays a natural authority toward the dog, socialization and obedience training are important. It is best to channel high energy individuals to some type of work and exercise. The objective in training this dog is to achieve pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. Because a dog communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting, all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs. That is the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success. This breed tends to drool and slobber.
