So sorry it's come to this, please don't let this bad experience put you off Labradoodles and the many good Labradoodle breeders who will not treat you like this.

Puppies should be warm clean and well, walk away if they are not.

I know your hurting at the moment, im sure that out there you will find a better puppy,
if we had any left i would have given you one of ours.

Someone on this site must know of a puppy that you all would give more love to.

im sorry that they came and took jess back, they're not good breeders, perhaps there was a underlining problem with there pups.
You should Name this breeder so they dont hurt another family by taken the pup back.
Are they on the labradoodle association?

How is your little one hope hope she is better :D :D :D

So sorry :( . I know how you will be feeling right now, with all the puppy things still around you. I just wanted to say, when I had to return Lupin to Bridget (under very different circumstances), I immediately wanted to get a puppy - I had waiting a long time for that puppy, and my mind had been geared up to it for months. It was very tempting to go straight out to the first litter I found. So please, I know it's soon to talk about it, but once you have had a puppy home it's almost a physical need to have one again. If you do feel the same, take a little while to find another puppy, and make sure that you are comfortable with the breeder and the health tests and so on, and hopefully get some recommendations here. The right puppies are out there waiting for us somewhere.

Thank-you, just been an awful few days. I have spoke to the Labradoodle Trust and explained all. I do not want to name them in public as do not want any more threatening behaviour as got 2 children to think about and they know where we live!!.

This has not put us off but need to heal some wounds. I am also going to fill in the adoption form at the Labradoodle Trust to see if they could match us with a dog that is in need of a loving home.

If that doesn't happen I am going to take time and do lot's of research and make sure we go to the best breeder possible. Do not want to go through this ever again. Just hope Jess finds a really good home as he is a gorgeous dog

Thanks Again everybody

Sad that he had to go back IMO he will be sold on as not many breeders will keep a dog pup from a litter. Some other poor soul will end up with a bigger Vet bill than they expected due to this twat of a breeder
Good luck on getting a new addition when you feel ready

What a dreadful story, I'm so sorry for your girls who must feel very confused, shame on the breeder for acting so aggressively.

There are some brilliant breeders out there, you may decide to try again once your nerves have settled, I'm sure lots of folks on here can recommend loving, caring breeders who will offer support if needed rather than aggression.

Then again, there are so many doodles coming into the trust it would be lovely for one of them to find their home with you , good luck

Totally agree and if it was just myself and my husband the decision would have been so different but I have 2 young girls and I just could not take the chance. Must admit I have had two very sleepless nights and cannot help worrying about him but hopefully I have taken measures to ensure he is ok.
I have certainly been taught a very harsh lesson. Trying to think of an excuse for them behaving in this manner but in my book it was just down right cruel.

Now I ask, was the mum or sire ever healthchecked ?
Never found out who the Sire was!
I honestly do not think any paperwork existed

I have not been put off though and have sent in my forms to the Labradoodle Trust so hopefully we will be matched with dog needing a loving home.

Thanks again everybody

The breeder we got Maizy from are expecting more labradoodles and springerdoodles over the next couple of months.

Good luck
