I opened Pandora’s box and released the Frankenstein monster. I believe that most of them are either crazy or have hereditary problems.

They don’t understand why people still breed them.

Conron, who created the cocker poodle, shi-pu, and paglia, explained that he originally brought Labradoodle as a guide. In the late 1980s, a blind woman, whose husband was allergic to long-haired dogs, asked him to choose a suitable pet.

For three years, Conron tried several shorthair breeds, but an allergic reaction was triggered on all of the blind woman’s husband. In 1989, Valli planned to breed a dog with the energy of a Labrador and the hair of a poodle.

Poodle breeders refused to cross their pets with a Labrador. Therefore, Concorne had to ask a poodle from his boss and happen to him with a Labrador. Nine weeks later, the first labradoodles were born – Shik, Simon and Sultan. Concord sent the hair of all the puppies to a blind woman, and only the Sultan did not cause an allergic reaction in her husband.

Sultan was sent to the new owners. However, there were problems with the two remaining puppies. Nobody wanted to take t hem, so Concorne convinced reporters that he had created a “special” hypoallergenic guide dog breed.


To Concorne’s surprise, the breed became unexpectedly popular. He regrets that he created a demand from “unethical” dog breeders: “I realized what I had done, a few days later. I went to our boss and said: “Listen, I created a monster. We need to somehow control the situation “”. But it was too late.

Concorne emphasizes that dogs of this breed suffer from mental and physical ailments. But his then boss, John Gosling, does not agree: “I think the dogs were just fantastic.” As a result, he took the Sultan to himself, and after his death he buried the dog in the backyard near the grave of his father.

Labradoodle creator regrets that unscrupulous people create “terrifying” dog breeding factories for money. He blames such breeders for bringing unstable dogs, which they eventually have to euthanize.

This is not the first time that Concorne has complained about its breed, which has become popular among celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Tiger Woods, and Neil Young. In 2014, he admitted to AP: “I have done a lot of trouble. I created a lot of problems. ”
