Alaskan Goldenmute History

The Alaskan Goldendoodle is a sweet-tempered, intelligent, family-friendly hybrid that blends the easygoing nature of the Golden Retriever with the low to non-shedding coat and hypoallergenic ease of care of the Standard or Miniature Poodle. The parent breeds of the Alaskan Goldendoodle are: Golden Retriever and Standard or Miniature Poodle. The Hybrid Breed: The origins of the Goldendoodle can be traced to 1988, when a breeder named Mary Burcham wanted to develop a hypoallergenic guide dog for her family. She crossed a poodle with a golden retriever, and the resulting puppies were uniformly healthy, happy, and allergy friendly. The offspring of the “Mary” litter were initially called “Goldador”, but the name didn’t stick. Eventually, the “Golden” was dropped, leaving the name “Goldendoodle”. The Doodles were first registered with the American Kennel Club in 2003. Health Concerns: With any mixed-breed dog, there is the potential for genetic health issues. Breeding two purebred dogs together generally ensures that the puppy will be healthy and free from such problems, but crosses between three, four, or more purebreds can be riskier. The biggest concern with these hybrids is that the parents come from two different strains of the gene pool, which can lead to health issues. However, the upside is that these dogs tend to shed less than their purebred counterparts.

Alaskan Goldenmute Activity Requirements

The Alaskan Husky, also known as the Alaskan Golden (or Gold) Retriever, is a medium-sized dog that was first developed as a sled dog during the 1800’s. They have many similarities to the Siberian Husky, with short, thick coats and a square, wolf-like head. The Alaskan Husky is a very adaptable and multi-talented breed of dog. They are incredibly intelligent and energetic, and they can do well in a wide variety of circumstances. They are considered a high-energy, high-drive type of dog, which means that they need lots of exercise and mental stimulation. The Alaskan Husky is well suited to life as a house pet, but they are equally happy living in an apartment or on a farm. They do, however, require regular exercise in order to be happy, well-rounded, and well-adjusted.
