I want to get a new dog. In October, it will be two years since my beloved Miss Indiana passed away. My son is 8 years old and I want him to be able to have a dog that can be his as well as mine too! Miss Indy was a lab mix that I rescued from a shelter, and she was with me for nine years. Now, I have a chronic illness, and I am looking for a dog that won't shed as much as she did. I have balance problems and vacuumming is a real challenge for me.
I was thinking about a labradoodle. Anybody here have one or have experience with them? Of course, I would love to rescue another dog, so I am checking with shelters for poodle mixes. I'll just know if the right dog comes along, but I wanted to see if the labradoodle is a good solution to the shedding issue, and good with kids.

A lady I work with has a labradoodle and our principal has 2 of them. They said they are great dogs and after the first shedding rarely ever shed again. AGAIN - I do not have any personal experience with them, this is just what two of my coworkers have said.
