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' should go into her breeding cycle this spring and is expected to be mated to the handsome Emmett Piccolo, who is retired but we have his frozen sperm!  Both Australian Labradoodles are wonderfully friendly and joyful companions to their owners.  

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

  • Emmett has gorgeous silky black curls throughout his non shedding coat.

  • Both love people in all sizes!

  • At this time Lucie's application file is full, but since I do not take deposits with applications, potential customers are free to continue to search for their pup without losing their deposit.  Finding the most perfect pup for you is what is most important here at ADNE!  If it is from another program - I say 'Congratulations'!!  :+) 
     

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 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.

 

PLEASE TAKE THIS POLICY INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN
APPLYING FOR A PUPPY.
