What Is A Labradoodle?
Labradoodles are a breed of dog named after the Latin word “labra” which means wolf. They come from Italy and were originally bred to hunt wild boar. Today they have been used for hunting rabbits, hares, squirrels, birds and other small game animals. They are known for being loyal companions and affectionate with humans as well as other pets. Some even consider them to be the cutest dogs around!
The term “ladybug” was coined to refer to these dogs because of their long hair. These are not true lop-eared breeds however, but rather short-haired ones.
