Sorry but mini doodles aren't quite mini. Most miniature goldendoodles will be about knee height when they are fully grown. Most people think of lap dogs when they hear mini, but in this case they are just mini compared to a standard sized goldendoodle. The reason they are smaller is because the female golden retriever is bred with a male toy or mini poodle.
Are mini goldendoodles hypoallergenic?
Yes and no, although I am sure that is not the answer you wanted to hear. The fact is a lot of mini goldendoodle breeders used to sell them ad being hypoallergenic, but there is no way to guarantee this. The reason breeders cannot guarantee that the puppies are hypo- allergenic is because they are a cross between a mini poodle and a golden retriever. If the puppies get more of the golden retriever genes then poodle their coat will be straighter and shed more. They are a low shedding dog though, so if you have allergies they still may be good for you
