His reason for doing this was to combine the low-shedding trait of the Poodle with the tenderness and trainability of the Labrador Retriever, to be able to provide an aide puppy for individuals with sensitivities to allergans such as pet dander. His success in completing the cross was simply the beginning of this breed's rise to popularity.
