I can’t thank you enough for breeding such amazing creatures. Ever since I found out I was allergic to dogs last year I had a really hard time accepting it because dogs to me are just another family member. When I found out about the Aussiedoodle I did so much research my eyes crossed! It was quite obvious you were the breeder to contact and I couldn’t be more thankful we came across little Bernadette (Meryl/Carry Grant litter). She is remarkable and her gorgeous baby blues against her white coat is mesmerizing! I can’t stop staring at her and have had no allergies from her what so ever!
From the day we picked her up we bonded right away. The first night I put her in her crate for training she whined of course, but I slipped my sweatshirt in I was wearing on the car ride home and she instantly went to sleep. Now, I always find her laying on my clothes, boots, or anything that smells like her mom! She’s also become best friends with our long haired Chihuahua, Sadie. Sadie has never liked other dogs but when Bernie was introduced, Sadie’s personality completely changed! They are best buddies and I’ve never seen Sadie so happy!
I really want to brag about the fact that Bernie is only 12 weeks and she’s the quickest learner of any puppy I’ve ever experienced. She learned to sit, lay down, high five, shake with right or left paw on command, heel, stay, within 3 days. We are working on rollover and much more, but her clumsy little self isn’t quite there yet ;]. She definitely shows both sides of her breed and I LOVE it. I plan to take her to obedience, agility courses, and a therapy dog course when she’s old enough. Her personality is perfect for the criteria of being my partner when I go into Hospice work. It was obvious to me when the first day she met my grandmother with congestive heart failure, she fell right asleep in her lap and it seriously made my grandmother’s day. She was rocking her like she was just another grandkid! So again, I can’t thank you enough for raising my newest best friend and I am looking forward to all the happiness this little ball of fluff will bring.
Joyce, just wanted to send you photos of Harley. She has settled in wonderfully. She has been such a joy..... We can't thank you enough for doing such a great job... You bring so much happiness to so many people. What a fantastic puppy. We love her so much❤️! Thanks again, Carol Elliott

Hello Joyce, I am sending you three pictures of our fun loving Max (Eva/Morgan) such a happy fellow who just loves everyone and every size dog. My husband has been diagnosed with dementia and Max is his little buddy. They both love going for walks every day, and my husband is often stopped by people on the street, with a "million" questions. Max really does have energy but is also quite calm, I am considering putting him in agility classes, which I think will be really good for him. He had is 1 yr birthday Feb 21st weighing in at 22lbs and 191/2" tall (very long legs).
Thank you so much Joyce for all of your hard work breeding such a beautiful and most importantly lovable addition to our family.
Dear Joyce: I keep meaning to update you on our boys from the litter of
AJ/Buddy Epson - now named Rusty (on the left, sitting) and Cameron Diaz/Bela Lugosi - now named Tuxedo (on right, lying).
They are both quite the characters - very smart and can do several tricks - good on leash, with people, kids, dogs and cats. They both love the beach and the water which is good since we are a surfing family. We are working on recall and some more complex trainings, hope to get them on a surfboard eventually. Potty training seems to FINALLY be mostly done - thought that one would go on forever.
Rusty is more mild mannered. He lies at our feet and is happy to join you for a good cuddle if allowed on the couch or bed. He is good at notifying us if someone is coming into the yard with a deep bark, though doesn't participate in Tuxey's barking (see below). He seems to have a little separation anxiety that we are working on - definitely more dependent on companionship than Tux. He is taller than Tux with long lanky legs, weighs about 30# and is about 19" at the shoulders. You can really see the poodle in him. His puppy coat is nearly gone and his new coat is so soft, wavy and beautiful.
Tux is our Dennis the Menace - if there is trouble, he will find it. He has the sweetest face so it is hard to stay upset too long. I have no idea how he finds socks, but he will and we are getting low. Tux is our busy boy, always moving, looking and exploring. Definitely had to babyproof all over again because he figures out how to get into anything - including finding him on top of the dining room table on a regular basis.Tux likes to bark at everything and has discovered a place where he can peek through the fence and watch for people to walk by and bark at. We are working on learning better manners =). He is about 23# and 16" at the shoulder. He, too, is loosing most of his puppy coat and we think he will be more grey as he ages as his coat seems to be getting lighter in color. His coast is like silk, with some tight waves and we brush him to prevent matting.
Originally, I thought Tux would be Alpha, but I am wondering if this might be changing as Rusty doesn't seem to put up with as much of Tux's nonsense. We have people ask us all the time what kind of puppies they are and where we got them. I have referred folks to you and your website many times. Anyway, saw you were breeding the parents again and thought I would update you on them.
Charlie continues to delight and amaze us each and every day. I have had a variety of and have loved all my dogs that I have had my entire life. However, sometimes when I look at Charlie I feel an overwhelming sense of guilt because I just can't look at her without thinking she is truly a gem. Family members are constantly amazed and astounded when they meet her. Nothing can rival her personality and smarts. It's really beyond words. She's so submissive and quiet yet still so expressive. You watch her and you can literally see her brain working and trying to hard to learn everything she can about the world around her. She'll just sit in the yard for hours and just watch and stare and absorb everything she absolute can. We have to work on walks because if you take her to a more public place she will stop every 5 feet and flop down in the path of a passerby to show her stomach and beg for pets. And, everyone obviously always obliges. She sleeps on the exposed area of the second pillow behind ours heads. I wake up every morning and look up to see her face hanging over the edge above my head. It's impossible to wake up with anything but a smile on your face after seeing that. No matter what the day will bring you. She's a hoarder and a worker. She's constantly moving her entire (spoiled much) pile of toys from one pile in one room to another. She does not chew things (knock on wood) but she loves to get to work to carry your shoes from one place to another as well. Sometimes I'll come inside to see a pile of 5 arranged somewhere else within just minutes.
We are a bit of a digger in the yard. If you turn your back there will be a giant hole under the bush in 5 seconds. I told you in my first follow up that she was sitting, laying, and shaking within a week in our home.
However, as I start to trust her a bit more roaming on her own in the yard, (we let her out on a lead because our yard is currently not fenced but does back up to a very large field) I find that she does not go too much further than she is supposed to. BUT when she starts to venture, it really makes me realize that she does not have 'come' down or responds to her name at all. I liken it to calling a cat. No response, no reaction, no acknowledgement of her name whatsoever. When you go out to her she does start to run unless you are truly truly stern and she gets scared and rolls over for you. Just wondering if you had any advice with regards to that.
You have brought so much joy to so many homes. Bless you for what you do.
Merry Christmas Joyce! I hope your holidays have been joyful!
I'm writing to tell you how unbelievably amazing our pup is! His name is Winter (Win! for short) and he is smartest puppy I've ever met. He's so trainable and eager to please. I'm amazed at how much he's learned being so young. He already knows multiple commands: sit, down, stay, open, roll over, toy, his recall is fantastic, and he's excitedly learning others. He's completely in love with the kids and they are in love with him. He's well behaved in his crate, he is so friendly, and he travels well. Everyone who meets him comments on how sweet and adorable he is.
Thank you so much for breeding such a great family member for us!!
Dear Joyce, How are you doing? We still look at the website from time to time and admire all the adorable puppies. Our Lacey is the little girl from your Julie Andrews. She is almost 3 years old now and such a smart, pretty and just all around great girl! We thought it was funny that the new owners of Julie Andrews renamed her Lacie Ann. We call our Lacey....Lacey Lynn! Anyway, I just wanted you to know that we love her and she is doing great! Hope you have a very happy New Year! Sincerely, Laura Caffrey
This is Max and Brodie playing at the park Christmas Day. Max is just over two. When I saw Max I knew that my next puppy would be from your dogs. Both Max and Brodie are very good nature and play so well together. Brodie just loves to socialize with other dogs and has many pals to run and play with. Diana
Just wanted to give you an update on our sweet little Buffalo. She is just about six months now and we have her in service dog training. She is the sweetest and smartest dog you have ever met and by far the brightest in all of her training classes :)
She is around 12 pounds now, and the vet says she will be around 18 pounds max. Her color is starting to lighten, but I think she will be a beautiful light brown adult. Here are a few pictures to share on your bragging page!
Yep, Denise is dressing her up. She's been a great pup. To my surprise she is very laid back. Her coat is exactly what I wanted. Took her in for a booster today, she weighs 10.5 lbs. vet says she's in great shape. Her and our multipoo are great buddies.
Thank you so much Joyce, Rango has brought us so much joy. We have had the most amazing summer travelling and getting to know one another. He has been a breeze to train and we are now in our second set of training classes. He is now 4 months old and I will send along some more pics. But in the meantime, here is one of my favorites.
Hi Joyce. This is LULU and cant get much cuter. Her tail wags so fast and its curl acts like a helicopter. She still loves going backwards. Thanks for the pile of fur! When do you recommend having her fixed? She was from the May 11th litter.
We got "Leo" from the Clint Eastwood/Barbara Streisand Born 7/21/2012. You called them your "brag" litter :) Leo turned 1 year old yesterday and he has been the greatest dog! We get compliments on his happy personality, great size (Large Mini/small moyen: 18 inches and 25 pounds), and beautiful unique color ALL THE TIME! Leo started out blackish and you said he would be a "Lassie" color but when we got his first hair at about 8 months he turned into a brindle color! Leo was so easy to train with potty training (only 2 accidents) and has most commands down (sit, "paw", shake, lay down, dance, and he will roll over for anyone wanting to give him a belly rub!) Down in South Carolina, Leo loves to ride on the kayaks with us, jump into the water, and swim at the dog parks to retrieve tennis balls! We also love taking him on 2-4 mile runs! He also loves to herd some of the dogs (big or small) in the park by going in circles and nipping at the hind or just wrestling with the dogs (his trick to take them down is nipping the ears) but all HAPPY PLAY! We are so happy with him and I'm pretty sure we have convinced many friends and family to get aussiedoodles from you too! :)
Thanks for helping change our lives with Leo!
Patrick Morgan and Stephanie Buffo
P.S. Do you have any other information or updates on his brothers and sisters about their temperament, size, colors? We would love to hear if they are similar!
Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much I love my AussiePoo. We named her Corona and she's the best little fluff I've met. She gets her bursts of energy, but her favorite thing is to sleep on someone's lap. She loves to claim my pillow and lay her head on me at night. She loves every person and animal she meets and is extremely intelligent. I am so happy we got to bring her home ~ Hayley Faust
A HUGE thank you to all my very dear friends, and, please, if you don't see your baby here then resend and I'll try to get your photo up. It's overwhelming and fabulous to see all the happy faces and to hear your stories!
