A Goldendoodle is a Golden Retriever and Poodle cross.  Goldendoodles, also called Golden Poos, Goldie Poos, or Groodles, have been bred in North America and Australia since the early to mid-1990's.  As the smaller poodle hybrids had been such a success in filling the niche for small, allergy friendly family pets, Golden Retriever breeders decided to try a breeding with a standard poodle for a larger family pet.  The quick rise of the popularity of Goldendoodles is due to the dogs themselves.  They are a most marvelous hybrid. The term 'Goldendoodle' appeared soon after the introduction of the Labradoodle by Wally Conron. The earliest known use of the name 'Goldendoodle' comes from the Neelands family in the U.S.A in 1992.  The family started calling their dog, Sugar, a 'goldendoodle'  in response to a question from a passerby who asked “is that a labradoodle?”.  They replied, “No, it’s a goldendoodle”, and have referred to her as such ever since. .
