Welcome to Southern Cross Labradoodles. Our home is located near New Orleans, where we are a premiere breeder of Australian Labradoodles. Australian Labradoodles are known worldwide for their highly intelligent and gentle nature along with their low to non-shedding, allergy friendly coats. If you are an asthma or allergy suffer, the labradoodle may be the pet you are looking for.
My name is Becky Roth. My husband, Jim and I traveled to Australia in 2003 and hand picked our foundation breeding stock. We visited the major breeders who were the first developers of the Australian Labradoodles. We saw many beautiful dogs but none them impressed us like Ariel. She was romping in a large pen with many other females. Her grace, beautiful wavy fleece coat and outstanding conformation took our breath away.
Ariel has not disappointed us. Her offspring are magnificent and now her daughters, granddaughters and even great granddaughers have joined our breeding program.
Jim and I are both career teachers. We have dedicated our lives to observing, nuturing and fostering the development of children and we bring that same compassion and love to our breeding program. All our labradoodles are raised in our home, in a family atmosphere, with attention given to the highest of practices and standards.
Here at Southern Cross Australian Labradoodles our puppies are bred to be family companions and we are dedicated to providing both them and their adoptive families with a very special relationship. Please browse through our web site and contact us if you would like to know more.
Meet our Assistant
My name is Erin Murphy, I specialize in wearing as many hats as I can. I am a wife, mother of two, homemaker, amateur photographer, and lover of Labradoodles. As a child I wanted to work with animals, but since I suffer from severe allergies, I had to retire that path. Prior to having children, I was a school resource officer in Pinellas County, Florida. We moved to the Baton Rouge area in 2011 and were introduced to Becky and Jim shortly after. Once we became Guardians of Nola Deux, we fell absolutely in love with the breed and the Southern Cross Family.
About Our Logo
Southern Cross is named after the Southern Cross Constellation that is only seen in the Southern Hemisphere. The stars of this Constellation are the stars that appear on the Australian Flag. The Union Jack also appears on the Australian Flag representing their historical links with England. We have incorporated our name and the symbols that represent our origin into this logo.
