Welcome to Southern Charm Labradoodles   

Located East of Atlanta Georgia. 
State Licenced and Inspected by the Georgia Dept of Agriculture

My name is Carol Dean and I am a breeder of American and Australian multigen, Labradoodles, all sizes!  I am located East of Atlanta, Georgia. My goal is to breed an all-around great family companion: with exceptional health, allergy-friendly (as much as possible), great coats and with a superb loving disposition.

My interest in breeding Labradoodles began with a love of Labrador Retrievers, well known for their great dispositions. A friend of mine,approached me one day while we were walking our dogs at the park.  She had her exquisite black poodle named along with her, I had my young English lab female named Jade.  She proposed a mating of the two dogs and told me about labradoodles. I'd never heard of them before and after much research decided to give it "one" try........The union of these two dogs yielded my beloved Ace, who is pictured at the right.  Sadly he was taken from us at only 17 mos old...........His personality, love, trust of everyone and utter loyalty, stole our hearts and it's been a doodle obsession since that time.

 

Many of our dogs live with us inside our home and on 8 acres, and horse named Cherry.  They have free run of the property, including pastures, woods, barn and pool area's all of which they utilize, sometimes more than we want them to......... I have many dogs in guardian homes which is wonderful for both the dog and the breeder.  Dogs in guardian homes remain intact, have a loving family and are well socialized and trained no kennels ever!  The learn more about this program click this Guardian home link..
 
 We have several nurseries inside my home and that of my assistant Jackie Moore..

  

Puppies are born and raised indoors for their first 4-5 weeks they learn all the sights and sounds of the home.  Vacume, phone, TV, laundry room as well as my constant phone chatter....lol......as well as being held and loved allot...all this can be seen on our puppy cam during this time......I often bottle feed my puppies, even for one feeding a day so their first association with the human hand is one of love, nurishment and comfort....
They eventually graduate to the nursery in my barn( heated) where they have lots of room to play indoors and outside.  They explore new things and  learn how to interact with older dogs as well, pecking order issues.  They get to experience the sights and sounds of rain, thunder, airplanes, mower noises as well as the many different footings that I have available for them.  They continue to be handled a bunch once moved outside by my kid puppy proofing groups that come....and families....

This is the back side of my barn where the puppy nurseries are and some inside shots of the indoor areas.  Puppies play in the pasture surrounding the barn several times a day.  Yes the climbing toys are theirs too but toddlers visiting also get a kick out of them....

 

 

 

 

    
At night the adult dogs all sleep indoors with us and are active members of the house hold pecking order, human and animal alike..........We do have some potential breeding dogs in "guardian homes"  which is the best of both worlds for some families and especially the dogs.......                                                                  
Relaxing after a sunrise romp in the pasture...
 
Our dogs and any litter we produce are hand raised with lots of love inside our home and are well socialized to the outside world and many of it's wonders before they leave us for their forever families.........( see socilaization link).  They come to you with "at least" one set of shots, a vetinary health certificate, appropriate wormings for age, and are microchipped.  Along with this you will recieve a goody bag of toys, food for 3-4 days, and a toy with the scent of your puppies littermates and mother, medical records booklet, as well as life time support from us. (PuppyApplication link)
 
The Labradoodle possesses the strengths of both the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle: an intelligent, personable, loving, joyful and often times allergy-friendly dog............We are dedicated to the continuing effort to improve this wonderful breed in both health, temperament and coat.
 
 
Y'all just feel free to scroll around our web site and meet our dogs, all of whom have or are in the process of getting their health clearances.  These will be listed on their individual pages.  We feel strongly about breeding only the best, from champion line's and excellent health on both sides.  Temperament is of the utmost importance as this can also be passed on to puppies..........
So come on down and schedual an appointment for a visit, to meet us, our dogs and a feel of southern hospitality!  Or at least give us a call, or send an e-mail if you have any questions at all...........don't be a stranger...! 
 
A list of referrences both vets and families can be sent upon request....

What dogs teach us...do you remember love?

A Breeders poem..........
 
I love my little puppy; she makes my house a home.
She is my very sweetest little friend; I never feel alone.
She makes me smile; She makes me laugh; She fills my heart with love . . .
Did some person breed her, or did she fall from above?

I've never been a breeder, never seen life through their eyes;
I hold my little puppy and just sit and criticize.
I've never known their anguish; I've never felt their pain,
the caring of their charges, through snow or wind or rain.

I've never waited the whole night through for babies to be born,
The stress and trepidation when they're still not there by morn.
The weight of responsibility for this body in my hands,
This darling little baby, who weighs but 60 grams.

Should you do that instead of this . . . or maybe that was wrong?
Alone you fight and hope, one day, he'll grow up proud and strong.
You pray he'll live to bring great joy to someone else's home.
You know it's all just up to you; you'll fight this fight alone.

Formula, bottles, heating pads, you've got to get this right,
two-hour feedings for this tiny guy, throughout the day and night.
Within your heart you dread that you will surely lose this fight,
to save this little baby, but God willing . . . you just MIGHT.

Day one; he's in there fighting; you say a silent prayer.
Day two & three, he's doing well, with lots of love and care.
Day four & five . . . he's still alive; your hopes soar to the heavens.
Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands, day seven.

You take this little angel, and bury him alone.
With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted groan,
You ask yourself, "Why do this? . . . Why suffer through this pain?"
Yet watch the joy your puppies bring,and everything's explained.

So, when you think of breeders and label them with "Greed,"
Think of all that they endure to fill another's need.
For when you buy your puppy, with your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money . . . while they pay with all their heart.
