I don't know about your breeder conflict and how it can be resolved. You do need to have swabs done from both parent dogs, as well as the offspring. But, if you do not have access to the parent dogs, then companies like VetGen cannot provide your answers. If you want to keep your dog and cut down on the shedding, give him Organic Flax Seed - it can work wonders very quickly. If the breeder is one listed on Goldendoodles.com, then I'm sure you'll be able to resolve your difficulties. No one should have to return a dog to get a refund in a case like this, or if there is a medical problem. That's the oldest trick in the book - to require the return of the dog for a refund. Such breeders know that families quickly become emotionally attached to their puppy/dog and won't return it, and they won't have to refund. Try the Better Business Bureau and all of the complaint sites if you cannot get your refund. But, if you signed an agreement that states you will be required to return the dog for refund, then you're bound to that legally. This may all be an accident of indiscriminate breeding - like, a Golden male got in with the female and the breeder didn't know it. It could happen... wouldn't be a good sign but accidents do happen. Technically, you have a crossback, just not with a poodle. Good luck - Linda Rogers

      The only way to confirm parentage would be to do an oral swab on both the dam and sire to collect DNA cells. Vetgen can verify parentage via DNA for you BUT the companies out there do breed... more

          I wonder why Mickey didn't buy an ALD multigen? Then no worries about shedding. Even FB1's can have problems. Couldn't afford one?

            Is this comment really necessary?

              Perhaps not----but was meant honestly---folks, sometimes, try to save money and get what you pay for....always research both breed and breeder prior to buying! Know what you may or may not be... more

                YES, I agree with you, Debbie. This is about breed/breeder education. It's part of the subject. People sometimes don't like the answers they get when they ask questions. Goldendoodles.com has all the ... more

          Why don't you post a copy of the results from Cornell so we can understand how they came up with their conclusion?

          Kendra was respectful to you and kind enough to give you an answer and deserves the same respect from you. And yes, she has been an informed, reputable breeder for many years.
