|Hi; I'm Ivy.
When we lived in a small house, we bred Maltese as the ideal apartment dogs. Once we moved to a farm with horses, we
discovered the purely American F1B Labradoodle. Each of our breeding programs was begun for the sole purpose of
providing loving, caring, and responsible owners with wonderful dogs having the best available temperament, intelligence,
and personality for particular environmental conditions.
The development of our Trinity Oaks Multigen Toy Florida Labradoodle breeding program was a natural extension of this
philosophy. All of our dogs are registered with internationally recognized breeding associations, such as CKC and AKC,
and our pups have CKC registration. But as responsible breeders, Trinity Oaks looks beyond registration with breeding
associations, and carefully chooses breeding stock based on the character and integrity of the breeders as well as the
conformation, temperament and personality of the dogs. Our highest priorities are temperament and personality. But we
make no apologies for their being cute and adorable!
We carefully choose our dogs from single-breed breeders, never from breeders who breed multiple breeds of dogs. We
ourselves do NOT breed Poodles, Schnoodles, Labrador Retrievers, F1 Labradoodles, or Australian Labradoodles, or any
Labradoodles other than purely American Multigen Toy Labradoodle puppies. By labeling our puppies purely American
Multigen Toy Labradoodle puppies, we are guaranteeing that our puppies are bred 75% purebred Poodle, and 25%
purebred Labrador Retriever. Unlike Australian Labradoodles, there is no Cocker Spaniel or other third breed strictly for
the sake of coat in our breeding mix. We breed our Labradoodles for intelligence and temperament.
We have the sire and dams of our puppies on our farm for your inspection. We carefully attempt to ensure that both the
family and the puppy are suited for each other. The puppy’s life and our reputation are put on the line with every puppy
placement. And unfortunately not every home or family situation is suitable for a puppy. A person can have a personality
conflict with a puppy just as one can with another human being. Visiting Trinity Oaks is clearly the BEST way to pick a
puppy. Additionally, we believe that a proper relationship between a puppy and its owner is the only way to ensure a
happy puppy and family. Therefore, we require that our puppies and their owners complete an approved dog obedience
training course before the puppy reaches seven months of age. This is at least as important for the owner as it is for the
puppy - the owner MUST learn to properly communicate with the puppy in order to establish a satisfactory relationship!
As experienced (over 40 years) breeders, we believe that a proper kennel is essential to healthy breeding of quality
puppies. Many of our clients have told us about how easily their puppies house-train. Come see us and play with our
Trinity Oaks puppies. . Perhaps a Trinity Oaks puppy might be the right addition to your family, especially if you suffer from
Most people visiting this site already know that Labradoodles were first bred more than twenty years ago to produce a
new breed of dog combining the extreme intelligence of a Poodle with the calm, even temperament of a Labrador
Retriever. The phenomenal success of the experiment is well known, with Life magazine having proclaimed Labradoodles
"the world's most perfect dogs".
Breeding a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle produces an F1 Labradoodle (50% Poodle 50% Labrador Retriever). While
an F1 Labradoodle is a wonderful dog in it's own right, we don't stop there. By back-breeding a carefully selected F1
Labradoodle female with a carefully selected unrelated poodle male, we produce a Trinity Oaks Toy F1B Labradoodle
puppy (75% Poodle 25% Labrador Retriever). Then by breeding two unrelated F1B Toy Labradoodles, we produce our
Trinity Oaks Multigen Toy Labradoodle puppies.
Trinity Oaks Toy Multigen Labradoodle puppies have superior intelligence and are highly likely to have the desirable
characteristics of non-shed or hypoallergenic coat. We breed Trinity Oaks Toy Multigen Labradoodle puppies, as these
exemplify the best Labradoodle characteristics, and are much more likely to be compatible with allergy sufferers than are
back yard bred 50-50 F1 Labradoodles. Breeding Trinity Oaks Toy Labradoodle puppies too extensive knowledge and
experience, and a huge investment of love, time and capital.
A Trinity Oaks Toy Labradoodle puppy is a far safer investment than a low-priced puppy from an inexperienced breeder, a
pet store, or a puppy mill. At Trinity Oaks, you will meet both of the puppy's parents (we don't hire stud dogs), and you will
get to meet and play with the puppies BEFORE making a decision to add a puppy to your family.
We are located a mile from the Natchez Trace Parkway in the northwest corner of Alabama, convenient to memphis,
Nashville, Birmingham and Huntsville. We are on beautiful partially-wooded twenty acre farm where Trinity Oaks Toy
Multigen Labradoodle puppies share our farm with our pets, and our Rocky Mountain horses. We have one fifteen-pound
F1B male breeder - Bama, and one 11 lb F1B Labradoodle female breeder - Lacy. We also have the toy Poodle
grandfather of our breeding line, my Standard F1 Labradoodle service dog, a Heinz 57 rescue dog, a Maine Coon cat, and
a three legged rescue cat. They ALL get along well together. Giving them all equal attention is a challenge, but we're retired
teachers and up to the challenge! We allow our female to breed no more often than once a year, and retire breeders while
they are young. You can see them on our "breeding" page, or come visit Trinity Oaks!
NOTE TO OUR FLORIDA CLIENTS:: We have moved to three acre facility in the Shoals area of Alabama, just east of
Florence. It is located convenient Nashville, Huntsville, Memphis, and Birmingham. Escape the heat and come on up to
visit. We look forward to seeing you here now and in coming years!
|1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you
will be very painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. Take me to
obedience classes so you can learn how to effectively
communicate with me.
3. Place your trust in me: it is crucial to my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as
punishment. You have your work, your friends, your
entertainment. I have only you!
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand the tone of your voice when
you're speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll NEVER forget it.
7. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily rip the skin off of your hand, but I
choose not to bite you because I love you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be
bothering me. Perhaps I'm ill, or not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too long, or I've
eaten something that's not good for me.
9. Take care of me when I get old. Remember, you too will grow old.
10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or, "Let it happen in my
absence." Everything is easier for ME if you are there.
Remember, You are EVERYTHING to me!
“She keeps repeating it over and over again. We’ve been back at least five times. It
has been weeks now since we started all of this,” the woman told me.
“What is it she keeps asking for?” I asked.
“We have different sizes of puppies, if that’s what she’s looking for.”
“I know. We have seen most of them,” she said in frustration.
Just then, the young child came walking in the office.
“Well, did you find one?”
“No, not this time,” she said with sadness in her voice. “Can we come back next
We looked at each other, shook our heads and laughed. The young child took her
mother by the hand and headed to the door. “Don’t worry, I bet we’ll find one next
Over the next few days both her mom and dad had long conversations with her. They
both felt she was being too particular. “It’s this weekend or we’re not looking any
more,” Dad finally said in frustration. “We don’t want to hear anything more about
“puppy size” either,” Mom added.
Sure enough they were the first ones here on Saturday morning. By now, the young
child knew her way around, so she ran right for the smaller pups. Tired of the routine,
Mom sat in the kitchen with me. From the kitchen window you can see the dogs and
pups at all times. The young girl walked slowly from puppy to puppy, kneeling
periodically to take a closer look. One by one she picked up and held each one. One
by one, she said, “Sorry, you’re not the one.” She knelt by the last puppy on this last
day in a long search of the perfect pup. The child carefully picked up the puppy and
held it closely. This time she took a little longer.
“Mom, I found the right puppy! He’s the one! I know it!” she screamed with joy.
Mom, startled by all the commotion, came running. “What? Are you sure? How do
you know?” she asked.
“It’s the puppy sighs!”
“It’s the same size as all the other puppies you held the last few weeks,” Mom said.
“No, not ‘size’ - sighs. When I held him in my arms, he sighed,” she said.
“Don’t you remember? When I asked you one day what love is, you told me, “Love
depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the sighs!”
Mom didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. As she stooped down to hug her child she
did a little of both.
“Mom, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy come home from work
and hug each other you both sigh. I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed
when I held it in my arms,” she said. Then holding the puppy up close to her face, she
said, “Mom, he loves me. I heard the sighs of his heart.”
