Sweet Carolina Honey Bear
Australian Labradoodle breeder Honey Bear made her debut into the family when Matilda and Charlie whelped their Old West Litter. Her eyes and muzzle were lovely from the beginning, and by the time she was old enough to be adopted, we knew we could not let her go. We were too in love.
We changed her name to Honey because of her beautiful color and her sweet demeanor. When we shared this with the guardian family, we learned that the youngest of the daughters once had the nickname “Honey Bear,” and it was settled! Honey Bear she is.
Honey Bear has a tall and slender build like her father. However, she has a soft and almost fleece-like coat that is practically straight. She is extremely soft to the touch. Her creamy coat is accented by her darker ears and muzzle, giving her an angelic appearance.
Honey is a sweet companion. She wants to be in the presence of her humans. She has tender eyes that can also give her away when she has been a little naughty. She loves to hide her toys and bones. She truly is a content and happy girl… the happiest girl in the world according to her guardian family, and we agree. She is quiet and gets along with all of her human and animal friends. At night, she tucks herself under the covers and lies with her head on a pillow.
Honey throws calm, well built, and beautiful litters. Her puppies have been red, apricot, and white. Her grown pups range in weight from 11 to 28 pounds. She follows in the footsteps of her mother, Swinging Gate Matilda, by being a loving and devoted mother.
Why is medical testing necessary?
Selective breeding programs help control hip and elbow dysplasia and inherited eye diseases. The Australian Labradoodle Club of America offers a controlled atmosphere. Required tests ensure that generations of breeding animals do not pass on genetic defects to offspring.
When you purchase a puppy registered with the ALCA, you know that the labradoodle is bred with the highest quality of health in mind.
To obtain certification, Sweet Carolina Labradoodles schedules our pups’ appointments after they turn ten months old. This age ensures they are practically developed and will test accurately.
Because we live in the country, we plan a full day of travel to Charlotte for each breeder dog. We visit two different canine specialists.
The procedure for hip and elbow dysplasia requires several hours. The doodles are given light anesthesia to ensure a thorough examination.
After our labradoodle wakes, we visit a canine eye specialist for a detailed examination. The Labradoodle is then registered with the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF).
Upon receipt of satisfactory results, we send the paperwork into the ACLA. We pay the registration fee. Then our new doodle breeder is official! Our club’s health requirements ensure the health of our puppies. It also promises that our adoptive families gain a quality pet to enjoy for years to come.
