HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!

In loving memory
of Annabelle Potts
We are a boutique breeder of 
Mini (mostly) 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 - 2022

 

  • April - Skye was successfully bred to Duckie and is expecting a litter in May.  All are spoken for at this time.

  • April - Elsie is in heat and will be bred to either Emmett or Duckie soon! Stay tuned!


All parents will be minis or small mediums and pups are expected to mature in the 18 to 30 lb. range in assorted colors and patterns.

What does a WAIT LIST mean?
 

In almost every litter I have 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 if someone cancels. I contact you based on if there is a 'puppy match' per your application. 


There is no obligation; HOWEVER,
any new applications need to be
aware that my wait list for a
puppy can be as long as a
year -
 due to my small program.

ALWAYS BEST TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY THROUGH EMAIL:

Skye, below is our latest hopeful breeder for ADNE.  She is a true miniature with the funniest personality.  She is full grown now and has passed her testing criteria.

 

'Skye's the Limit' is a true miniature size Australian Labradoodle of about 18 lbs. and 15 inches in height.  If bred to Duckie will produce a litter of pups that will mature to under 20 lbs.  Great for traveling or flying in a plane.  She is mischievous, friendly, smart and cuddly.  An adorable little imp!!

This morning 3/17, Skye (left) and I went to have her first blood draw to test where her progesterone levels are.  Soon after we were back home, my vet called and said 'we need to breed today!' Oh my, a quick call to Duckie's guardian family 'for a date' was done and will happen later this afternoon.  If all goes well, I will be contacting some of my applicants who specifically wanted a miniature as these pups will mature to about 20 lbs.  Grateful my guardian is so accommodating - thanks Bill!  We shall cross our fingers.  :+)

                     ----------------------------------------------

Please note - I am a small, hobby breeder who has roughly four 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.  

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!

Skye (left) was bred to Duckie.  If successful, arrival of pups in May.

Elsie (right) should be bred sometime in late April.  At the moment, I am considering either Boomer or Duckie 
for Elsie which is a change. Skye will produce small, curly coated puppies in assorted colors. Elsie will produce mostly curly phantom patterned pups with Duckie or curly assorted colors with Emmett.

Skye is a true mini of roughly 17 lbs. and Elsie is a small doodle of about 25 lbs.  The potential studs are of appropriate size for these girls.

 MAY 2022 BE A YEAR OF GOOD HEALTH & HAPPINESS.
