In loving memory of
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 6 years or older to be considered for a puppy at the
suggestion of our trainer.
LITTERS - 2024
Please go to the AnnaBlog tab for pics of our previous litters!
New litter is planned for
Spring of 2024.
This will be a litter of pups in the 20 to 32 lb. range. Creams, apricots, blacks & chocolate expected.
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.
I DO NOT HAVE A WAIT LIST
AT THIS TIME.
ALWAYS BEST TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY THROUGH EMAIL
Be good to yourselves and others
and always think positively.
Nothing like a furry companion
to snuggle with in any season!!

A delightful example of an Apricot pup with white abstract markings on his head, chin, chest and toes. :+)
At this time, my intention is to repeat the breeding of the above two doodles. Their first litter was a complete success in both temperament and variety of puppy colors and patterns. Of course, DNA is about as unpredictable as the weather here in Southern Maine, but I love whelping a litter that has lots of surprises. :+)
Both doodles are wonderfully friendly, intuitive and enjoy people & other animals. Both live with cats too!
Phoebe's coat is super soft and gently curled. Diesel's coat is slightly wavy and silky. Neither one sheds. You can check out their first litter together by going to the AnnaBlog and searching on the right-hand column for the 'Phoebe x Diesel' litter.
The pups from this mating should mature from 25 to 32 lbs. and be considered small mediums. Diesel has solid boning and Phoebe has a 'feminine' physique.
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.
