In loving memory of
Annabelle Potts
We are a boutique breeder of large
Mini & Small Medium Labradoodles in
Southern Maine offering
limited litters per year 

 

By design and intention, we are a small, but exclusive, breeding program. You will rarely find us raising several litters at once. We breed ONLY companion doodles.  

 Please research other breeders for service or therapy Labradoodles. 

Our strong focus on customer service requires visits to our home for puppy socialization with the litter you are purchasing a pup from - a benefit for you and the puppies!

Our goal is to always improve on this hybrid through
education, research and health testing.  

ADNE REQUIRES CHILDREN TO BE
SIX YEARS OLD+ 
to be considered for a puppy at the

suggestion of our trainer.

What does a WAIT LIST mean?

In almost every litter I've had someone has to cancel due to life issues – timing, sickness, moving, etc.

 

If you sent in an application and it is in the Wait List file, you are the people I contact FIRST. I contact you based on if there is a ‘puppy match’ per your application.
There is no obligation.

 

APPLICATIONS ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED FOR A FUTURE LITTER.
 

ALWAYS BEST TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY THROUGH EMAIL:

joycetabor@gmail.com

Be good to yourselves and others

and always think positively.  

Nothing like a furry companion

to snuggle with in any season!!

  • ​ADNE's Skip To My 'Lucie' went into her breeding cycle this spring and was mated to Diesel, one of our Australian Labradoodle studs.

  • Lucie has a non shedding coat of soft, wavy fleece that has black and charcoal shading - very striking with her dashes of white!

  • Diesel has a gorgeous soft wavy black fleece with a bit of white on his chest.  He has a soft, gentle temperament - a fluffy bear!

  • I am accepting applications at this time.  Best to go to the Purchase Details tab, download the application and mail it to me.  I am finding that doing it 'online' is not working reliably.

    Finding the most perfect pup for you is what is most important here at ADNE!  If it is from another program - I say 'Congratulations'!!  :+)

Diesel, was a delightful puppy, and is now a stud at ADNE.  He is a Black Abstract and has a wavy, non shedding coat of waves.

He is the sire of Lucie's litter.

MY PHILOSOPHY:

Please note - I am a small, hobby breeder who has roughly two litters a year.  If you are in a hurry for a pup, you need to seek a larger breeding facility that has multiple litters at the same time.  Also you may notice I am a believer in DNA diversity and open stud books, so do not have the AKC mentality of 'cloning' a litter.  My reason to go back into breeding (I bred AKC Golden Retrievers decades ago) was to work with and continue to develop a new breed candidate for health and temperament with DNA diversity which is why I embrace this wonderful hybrid.  Feel free to check out my testing protocol on each Australian Labradoodle I use for the ADNE breeding program under the 'Breeders' tab.

I also love and promote black Australian Labradoodles!  Many pup buyers prefer any other color but black.  I suggest you find a breeder that chooses a pairing that will avoid this color.  My preference is a litter producing multiple colors/patterns and working with clients that are flexible on both color and gender.  Personality and temperament will ALWAYS trump color or gender when I am assigning pups to families.
