A brief history of Goldendoodles
Goldendoodles have the calm temperament of the Golden Retriever, and the intelligence and nonshedding, hypoallergenic attributes of the Standard Poodle. This breed is a genetic hybrid, deliberately engineered, beginning in 1990. The ACA does register Goldendoodles as a breed, but the AKC does not yet; it took the AKC over 100 years to accept the Golden Retriever (which also began as a deliberate hybrid mix, of a Tweed Water Spaniel and a Flat Coat Retriever in 1835). Most breeds we know today began as deliberate hybrids, mixing certain traits to obtain the best of both breeds.
