Moxie and Breezy
Riverbend’s Autumn Breeze
This Litter is Fully Reserved:
Moxie and Breezy’s chocolate and caramel puppies arrived March 6th and they will be available to their new homes around May 4th. Moxie and Breezy’s Australian Multi-generational Labradoodle puppies will be Medium size (30-40lbs). This litter is fully reserved.
Breezy is a Medium size Australian Multi-generational Labradoodle with a beautiful caramel colored coat. She has a fun, out-going personality and her tail wags non-stop. She is happy, sweet, curious and very smart! Her correct conformation, beautiful bone structure and stocky English Style Labrador Retriever Influenced background, produces that signature Riverbend Labradoodle look! Her babies will continue the look and type we feel is so important within our breeding program.
Moxie is a Medium size chocolate boy with a loose wavy fleece coat, and his puppies are absolutely stunning. He is from Australian imported lines and is the solid structure and bone we love and expect from these genetics. Moxie has wonderful bone and excellent conformation, and stamps the Riverbend type in each of his puppies. You couldn’t ask for a sweeter, more loving boy, out-going and friendly, and he loves everyone he meets. Moxie is our constant companion and goes everywhere with us. Everyone that meets him can tell you his nose has no boundaries, and our families with Moxie babies love how easy-going his babies are. His puppies have picked up his silly personality, along with his laid-back, easy-going temperment, and his super sniffer-nose.

Tilly has a gorgeous caramel colored coat and is delightful to be around, always happy, always smiling, and has a bounce to her step. She loves a good game of fetch and loves visits from her Guardian Mommy’s grandkids and overnight slumber parties. Tilly has beautiful puppies and we are so excited for the potential of these babies to do therapy work and be loving companion family members! They are intelligent and quick to learn. Tilly is another fantastic example of the Australian Labradoodle, and will make a wonderful contribution to the breed through our breeding program.
Manor Lake Amadeus has an absolutely perfect silky caramel fleece coat, and white markings in the cutest of places. He is stunning to watch when in motion, has a beautiful head and full muzzle, and magnificent big amber eyes that will light up a room! Amadeus has a fantastic pedigree, excellent conformation, drop dead gorgeous looks, and his temperament could not be any more phenomenal. He is a happy, friendly, floppy, cuddle bug, who’s tail is always wagging! He loves everyone he meets, and he is an all around loveable little boy! We can hardly wait for him to stamp his mark in the Labradoodle world and he is a big part of our future plans at Riverbend Labradoodles! He carries for all the colors, and we look forward to pups in all colors of the doodle rainbow in his offspring.
It is not our goal to “sell” you a puppy, it is Our mission to provide a valuable family member.
Before going to their new homes, Riverbend Australian Labradoodle puppies are Vet checked, microchipped, given age appropriate vaccinations, spayed and neutered, de-wormed routinely, and heartworm, flea, and tick preventative is started. We guarantee, in writing, the health of our puppies for two years. All puppies are sent home with complete feeding and care instructions, a shopping list, training information for a smooth transition from our home to yours, and a “litter-scented” toy from home to cuddle with. Registration paperwork and pedigree from the Australian Labradoodle Association of America will also be provided. We offer our continual support, and welcome you to draw from our knowledge and years of experience, for as long as it is needed.
Riverbend Australian Labradoodle puppies are raised in our home, for proper socialization and handling from birth. We believe the key to a developing a healthy, rewarding relationship, lies in starting your puppy correctly. This will set the stage for a balanced, lasting relationship and a puppy that can handle transition into his new home and family quickly and easily. We start our puppies early with exposure to proper manners, house breaking, crate training, grooming, and handling. We evaluate our puppies ‘ individual personalities and help our families in choosing the puppy that fits best with their family, activity levels, and expectations. We welcome visits from families that would like to get to know us and our puppies, we do ask that you come straight from home, and do not stop along the way to visit other breeders to limit the possibilty of spreading germs, bacteria, or disease. Once your particular litter has arrived, you can visit after the age of four weeks, and we are happy to share that special time with you and your new family member. We will have you visit with several puppies, and sometimes the entire litter, so you are familiar with their personalities , and can be an active participant in choosing the puppy that is to join your family.
When you are ready to add a Riverbend Labradoodle puppy to your family we would ask that you call or email us directly, and share with us information about yourself and your family, your lifestyle and activity level, and things that you like to do as a family. We would like to hear about your previous pet history, and what you are looking for in the addition of a puppy to your family. We don’t use forms as we would prefer to be personally involved with our families and get to know each of them. When you are ready to place a reservation, you can send a personal check to us, or leave a deposit when you come for a scheduled visit. Our deposits are refundable through the age of 4 weeks, so you have time to be sure this is the right decision for your family, and we have time to be sure we have the right family for our puppy. We will send new puppy pictures directly to you every week to ten days so your family can be involved in the growth and development of the litter.
All parents have OFA hip, OFA elbow, and ACVO eye clearances before they are bred, as well as breed specific health clearances such as prcd/PRA, heart certifications, and vWD, to ensure that we have the healthiest puppies possible. We carefully research and select only the finest dogs for our breeding program, in order to produce a Labradoodle true to type, with predictable size, temperament, and coat. Our years of dedication to breeding only the finest American and Australian lines is evident in the style and grace of a Riverbend Labradoodle. We have stamped a consistant type and look that is unmatched in the Labradoodle community.
Puppies can be shipped, at buyer’s expense, from the Detroit Metro Airport in Michigan. We use Delta Airlines VIP Service or direct flights when possible, so the puppies are hand-delivered to and from the plane. Puppies are available via air after the age of 8 weeks. They will see our Veterinarian at 6 weeks and again just before leaving to ensure a current health exam and health certificate is completed. We work closely with our families to choose a major airport that is closest to them, but that still offers the most direct route. We also choose a day and time that works well with our families and their schedule, but at certain times of the year, weather temperatures may determine when we can fly our puppies. Shipping within the United States generally costs around $350 for airfare and your puppy’s travel kennel, however, older puppies or International flights can be more expensive and will be priced individually. We do not charge extra for your puppy’s additional Veterinary exam, health certificate, or travel to the airport, we will provide this service to you.
We are also blessed to be involved with a fantastic Labradoodle Breed organization called the Australian Labradoodle Association of America. The ALAA is a worldwide organization dedicated to protecting the breed we love so much. They maintain the largest database of Australian Labradoodles and Labradoodles in the world. They also share our special commitment to health testing and supporting responsible breeding practices. When they asked me to participate as a Board Member, and as their Secretary I was more than honored. I jumped at the chance to help protect and promote the breed we love so much.
Why is this important to you? Our Australian Labradoodles must meet requirements for health testing, and you can be assured that everything is being done to breed the healthiest Australian Labradoodle puppies possible. Our health warranty/contract provided to our families has been reviewed and approved. All our litters of puppies must be registered and appropriate pedigree information provided to families. Being an ALAA registered Australian Labradoodle Member Breeder means you can be assured we are responsible and accountable to an organization that has very strict guidelines and requirements in place that protect you as a consumer.
