12. Golden Doodle
A Goldendoodle is a cross-breed obtained by breeding a golden retriever with a poodle. The name (which alters “poodle” to “doodle” in reference to the Labradoodle) was coined in 1992.
The original purpose of the cross was to attempt to develop guide dogs suitable for visually impaired individuals with allergies.
The most common colors for Goldendoodles are black, brown, gray, red, white, and yellow.
Goldendoodles have been moderately used as guide dogs, therapy dogs, diabetic dogs, search dogs and rescue dogs.
