Our Goldendoodles come from a great lineage of Red's. Which is rare and very hard to find. Shangri-la and Palmares Kennels are credited with creating the Red Standard Poodle in 1980's. Leatherstocking Kennels has kept the integrity in their breeding practices of red standard poodles with a puppy they got from Shangri-la and Palmares Kennels. Elsie and Rustie our two female goldendoodles have the Leatherstocking lineage from their fathers pedigree. Benji our male standard poodle is from a lineage that has been able to get a dark red color and to keep it over time. The poodles fur has a tendency to gradually fade. Benji's Grandmother, and mother have kept their rich dark red color for several years.
