Labradoodle

A Labradoodle is a crossbreed dog created by crossing the Labrador retriever and the Standard, Miniature, or Toy poodle. The term first appeared in 1955, but was not initially popular. Labradoodles are a good choice for those with allergies, provided the poodle coat is inherited rather than the Labrador coat. Wally Conron of Australia takes credit for creating the Labradoodle in 1989. He claims to regret the discovery of the cross, asserting that healthy Labradoodles are "few and far between" and most are "crazy or have a hereditary problem." The Australian Labradoodle Association of America, an organization run by Labradoodle breeders, says they are "generally considered healthy dogs" but admits that common problems include hip and elbow dysplasia. Other ailments include eye diseases and Addison's disease, an endocrine disorder. There is some controversy over Wally Conron taking credit for the first Labradoodle.
