Lolly is Penny's daughter! She was born here at Impression Dogs in 2014. Lolly was an only child, and we knew when she was born that we were going to keep her forever! She's a very special and adorable little girl. She thinks she is one of our children, (she grew up with our girls and no puppy sibblings) and she expects to do everything they do. She is certain she's a princess, and is treated like one :)

We are planning a litter of Petite Mini Goldendoodles for December 2018
Our primary breed is the Mini American Shepherd. But once in a while we have a litter of Petite mini golden doodles from our F1 mini golden doodle "Lolly" and our toy poodle "Tootise." read about them below.
About Mini Goldendoodles....
Origin: The Goldendoodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, a cross that originated in North America in the late 1990’s. Poodle crossbreeds are meant to produce a dog with mixed traits and the Poodle’s signature nonshedding coat. Like other ‘designer breeds’, the Goldendoodle has seen a recent surge in popularity. As a crossbreed, the Goldendoodle is not eligible for registration with purebred registries such as the American Kennel Club, but it can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club. The Goldendoodle is not considered a purebred because it doesn’t ‘breed true’, meaning that it doesn’t display a consistent set of characteristics. Some breeders produce Goldendoodles by crossing a purebred Poodle with a purebred Golden Retriever (called a first generation cross, F1), but others allow crossing Goldendoodles with Poodles (called a backcross, F1b ), or other breeders may cross Goldendoodles with Goldendoodles (called a multi-generation cross, F2 ). Different crosses can result in different characteristics.
Size: The Miniature size Goldendoodle typically matures to 20-35 lbs. The Petite Miniature Goldendoodles are typically 10-15 lbs.
Coat: The Goldendoodle’s coat is a cross between the Golden Retriever and Poodle coat. It has fine hairs which appear quite thick. It can be curly or straight, most fall somewhere in the middle. Unclipped, the hair will grow about 4-7 in in length. Unlike the Poodle, the Goldendoodle should not be clipped any shorter than 1 in, as the coat provides natural protection in heat and cold. Depending on the Poodle influence, the Goldendoodle can come in a wide variety of colors including white, tan, chocolate, black, red, silver, or a mix thereof. A variety of colors and coat textures can appear in the same litter. Depending on the source breeds, the Goldendoodle may shed little to none like the Poodle or shed moderately like the Golden Retriever. Generally, the lower generations are better for allergy sufferers. Most Poodle crosses will go through various coat phases in their first year of life.
Character: The Goldendoodle is intelligent, friendly, and family oriented. It is a highly social dog. Goldendoodles tend to follow their nose wherever it leads, so a fenced-in yard is recommended. They are always ready for a game; most Goldendoodles retain the natural retrieving instincts of the Golden Retriever. The Goldendoodle’s friendliness with strangers makes it a poor watchdog. Goldendoodles do not bark frequently.
Temperament: Goldendoodles love to be with their family. They are eager to please and get along well with children, other animals, and strangers. They are social dogs and crave being around people.
Care: The Goldendoodle requires regular brushing or combing every few days. Goldendoodles have a lifespan of 9-15 years. They are most prone to health issues affecting Golden Retrievers and Poodles, including hip dysplasia in the larger ones (malformed hip joint which can cause lameness or arthritis), ear infections (particularly for longer-eared dogs) and eye problems such as cataracts, but as a mixed breed they are somewhat less likely to suffer health problems than purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’).
Training: The Goldendoodle is intelligent and has a strong desire to please its master, making it highly trainable. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach.
Activity: The Goldendoodle requires a moderate amount of exercise. Most enjoy swimming as both the Poodle and Golden Retriever are not averse to water. Goldendoodles can live happily on a farm or in a big city. They will thrive with daily walks or play time.
