Southern Cross Hall of Fame
Dedicated to our retired breeding dogs that have contributed greatly to our bloodlines
It all started with her. Our beloved Ariel was our first Australian Labradoodle. We traveled to Australia and hand picked her to be our foundation breeding stock. She was the perfect medium size with an amazing thick fleece coat. Ariel continued to live with us after she retired from breeding. We said goodbye to her just weeks before her 14th birthday.
When we purchased Ariel in Australia she was shipped to us pregnant and Rosie came from that very first litter whelped at Southern Cross. She was so much like her mother, Ariel.
Belle also came from our very first litter. Rosie took after her mom and Belle favored her father, Tegan Park Irish Night. She brought the silver into our lines that we love so much. Belle still lives with us.
We needed to find a suitable boy who we could breed to Ariel, Rosie and Belle. So, we imported “Kritta” as our first stud dog. I still see him in the eyes of his granddaughters and great-granddaughters. Kritta lives in Tyler Texas with his guardian family.
“Lola” came from our second litter. Her mother is Ariel and her father is Kritta. She is the mother of Stella and Maxie, who are still breeding today. She lives with her guardian family in Mandeville, LA.
Caviar came from Belle’s first litter with Kritta. She has helped carry the silver line for us and she brought the miniature size into our lines.
Sydney also came from a pairing of Belle and Kritta. She lives with her dad in Tyler, Texas.
“Lulu’s” mother is Caviar. She is a beautiful silver and we hope to keep that color in our lines through her son Tasso and her daughter Sister. She is living with her forever family in Mandeville, LA.
Sparkles mother is Sydney and her father is Brendan. She is the mother of Goldie. She lives with a guardian family.
Chicory was the last dog we imported from Australia. His grandson is Tasso and granddaughter is Sister. Chicory is living with his guardian in Mississippi.
Stella is the daughter of Lagniappe and Rew. She retired in 2015 and is living with her guardian family.
Emma is a beautiful chocolate standard. She is the mother of Arabella and Nola Deux. She also has offspring at Tampa Bay Labradoodles and Sunrise Labradoodles in Florida and Coulee Labradoodles in Alberta Canada. She is retired and living with her guardian family in Jackson, MS.
This sweet girl produced some wonderful puppies for us. She is the daughter of Lagniappe and her daughter Pheobe is currently in our breeding program. She lives with her forever family in Ocean Springs, MS.
Blue is Rosie’s son and is enjoying the good life of retirement in Mandeville, LA.
Goldie is enjoying the good life of retirement with her guardian family in Mandeville, LA.
