Hi Jan, Lily and Nessy,

I will certainly look into that. Thank you for your feedback.

Have a nice holiday.

Lakeshore Goldendoodles in Ny - read the warrantee carefully.  There is an odd conflict in how long they cover for Hip Dysplasia, and the age at which the dog is to be tested.  The contract says they cover debilitating hip dysplasia (not defined - could mean only OFA "Severe", who knows?) to age 2.  In the same paragraph, they say the testing has to be done at 24 months and before 26 months.  I don't see how this is going to help if the warrantee expires when the dog is 2 years old.  Even if they cover the issue, they only provide another puppy, no cash refund or payment for treatment of the first puppy's medical expenses...  Personally, I don't like that clause - if I have a sick dog, I don't want another dog, I want to treat the first one.  Always read the warrantee!

To email Blue, either contact her via her ning account -

Karen: Hey we live and learn. O.K. got to the main page and scroll all the way down. On the bottom left you will see "2011 Created by Blue Sterling" Click on his name then send a comment. Also I went into this websites Classified section and they listed Lighthouse - servicing NY, Long Island, CT. etc. But they are Labradoodles. Just had a litter on 12/9. Don't know if you saw it.

Oh, sorry I didn't know. How do I go about asking Blue????

I think you would have to ask Blue because he only likes to refer the Breeders that are recommended on this website because he has checked them out.  I know I got my hands slapped for recommending a website to someone when I first joined and as it turns out, the one I recommended had already been checked out by Blue and he had bad reports on them.

Does anyone know anything about Lakeshore Goldendoodles in NY? They also go under the name of For The Love of Doodles???

I know how it is, when you have you mind set on something, you want to get it done, like now!  Well, good luck and Happy Holidays.

Thank you again Grace. Like I said before I have been doing my homework and do look for breeders that do the health certifications for hips, eyes, etc. etc. I contacted Blackwood and will check with them again down the road. It's sooooooo frustrating going through this process because I really would like to get a puppy within a month or two but am coming to a dead end. I will continue my search but really would like to stay in the NY, NJ, Conn. or PA area. Believe it or not I have contacted a lot of breeders but either they do not have any puppies or they are the standard type which I really do not want due to their size and weight. I never thought it would be this hard finding a decent breeder but I guess I just have to keep trying...Thanks for your help!!

Karen:  I checked it out and the Breeder is in Blackwood, NJ which is about 1 1/2 hours away from you. Evidently they don't have any puppies available right now, but they ask that you call.  I just wanted to let you know that the thing that really impressed me the most about them is that they have their hips checked.  I know for a fact that a lot of Breeders don't do that, mine didn't!
