Welcome to Shadow Pine Labradoodles! We are a small, in home breeder located in Aiken, South Carolina. We are just across the river from Augusta, Georgia where the famous Augusta National Golf Tournament, The Masters, is played each April. As a mother-daughter team we specialize in providing healthy, happy Labradoodle puppies for loving homes like yours.
Though our journey with Labradoodles began in 2013, we are not new to breeding quality dogs. My parents bred and trained Brittany Spaniels when I was growing up and we always had Poodles in our home. For several years I, myself, bred Labrador Retrievers from field and show stock. Knowing firsthand the wonderful qualities of both Poodles and Labs, it was natural for me to fall in love with the Labradoodle breed.
It is our joy to raise beautiful, healthy, intelligent and happy medium and standard size Labradoodles ready to steal your heart and fill your home with their antics.
Labradoodle Breed Information
A Labradoodle is the result of breeding the Labrador Retriever to a Poodle, Labradoodle to Poodle, or Labradoodle to Labradoodle. Basically the Labradoodle has Labrador Retriever and Poodle DNA only, nothing else. The term Labradoodle first appeared in 1955 but was not popularized until 1988 when the mix began to be used as a hypoallergenic guide dog. Labradoodles are highly trainable and make fantastic companions, therapy dogs, assistance dogs, and trail partners.

F1 Labradoodle: 50% Poodle, 50% Lab, mild to light shedding, sometimes but rarely, no shedding. First Generation Labradoodles can have a coat type of wiry, wavy/shaggy, or straight. They are of excellent temperament and health if the parents are of the same quality. The First Generation is a great choice even for the family with allergies, though there may be some mild shedding.

The F1b has a curly or wavy coat and requires regular brushing if it is to remain unmatted. Notably, the curly coat is almost always non-shedding. The F1b is allergy friendly.

Multi Generational Labradoodle: A Labradoodle that is F3 or higher is considered a Multi-Generational. When Multi-Generation Labradoodles were first introduced to North American breeders, they were given a Lab-Poodle breeding program as the breeding model for Labradoodles. This breeding program allowed breeding to Poodles for the first four generations and by doing so the Poodles brought the non-shedding quality that is most desired. Poodles also allow the introduction of some popular new colors such as red, merle, and parti. The Multi-Gens not only produce more of a desirable soft fleece coat, they are non-shedding and are very allergy friendly.
