Yep we've now got two Labradoodles. They're actually considered a purebred now in Australia - they were intially bred to be hypoallergenic seeing-eye dogs - because Poodles don't shed and have wool, not fur.
Our babies will get big because they are both Standard Labradoodles. If the lab is bred with a miniature poodle it ends up smaller, and with a toy smallest of all. Although that is hardly ever done because the size discrepancy is too extreme. Standards are the most common.
They'll get about as big as a regular standard poodle.
They ARE very soft - and the most beautiful natured dogs I've ever known. I always have had German Shepherds (who I still love!) but Labradoodles are just in a class of their own! They're truly beautiful - gorgeous lab natures with the silliness and intelligence of poodles. Wonderful!!
