The F1 Labradoodle is the breeding of a Labrador Retriever with a Poodle.
The F1B Labradoodle is the breeding of a F1 Labradoodle, back crossed with a Poodle.
This yields a dog ¼ Labrador Retriever and ¾ Poodle. The F2 Labradoodle results when both parents are F1 Labradoodle (25% retriever #1, 25% poodle #1, 25% retriever #2, 25% poodle #2).
With any cross breed there is unpredictability in regard to size, coat, color and temperament. It is important to select the right breeder.
