We are no longer actively breeding. To find a reputable breeder, please visit one of the two following sites:
Meet our dogs, see pictures and find out about puppy availability through the 'Doodles link on the left. One of our dogs has convinced his owner to write a blog about him. His name is Brun and you can read his blog site at Living with a Labradoodle blog.
One of our F2b mini Goldendoodles was initially accepted into the service dog training program with C.H.A.M.P. Assistance Dogs in St. Louis. He did not successfully complete the program, so we hope that C.H.A.M.P. will accept another Missouri Doodles' puppy in the future. You can read more about C.H.A.M.P. on their website: C.H.A.M.P. Dogs and in a March 2007 St. Louis Post Dispatch article: C.H.A.M.P. article.
In January 2009, President Obama was looking for a family dog and had narrowed his choices down to a Labradoodle and another breed. St. Louis Channel 5 News interviewed me about Labradoodles and Doug Childress about Beau, his puppy. They messed up my last name (gave me Doug's!), but it was great to see Beau featured on the news! Here's the article and video: http://www.ksdk.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=164727.
Missouri Doodles bred superior miniature to medium Goldendoodles, adhering to stringent ethical standards. We believe that breeders should ensure that their adults are healthy and meet minimum genetic standards. Once you adopt a puppy from us, we are here for you throughout your pet's life.
Goldendoodles and Labradoodles were originally bred as assistance dogs in Australia. These dogs are hybrid dogs, originally produced by cross-breeding a poodle and a Golden Retriever (Goldendoodle) or a Labrador Retriever (Labradoodle).
Doodles maintain the personality of the retriever and the coat characteristics of the poodle, usually non-shedding and low allergy. The amount of shedding is dictated by the generation of the puppy. Here at Spur J, we breed mostly F1b puppies. That is, we breed a Labradoodle or Goldendoodle with a miniature poodle. This is called “back breeding” and significantly increases the non-shed and low allergy characteristics in the puppies.
