'Labradoodle' inventor regrets his creation

Sep 27, 2019 12:47 IST

The inventor of the 'labradoodle' dog breed,a cross between a labrador and a poodle, shares that it is his 'life's regret'. While speaking on a podcast, 90-year old Wally Conron shared that he unleashed a 'Frankenstein('s) monster'! He believes that his invention led to a trend of "unethical, ruthless people" breeding dogs without thinking about their health consequences. His initial aim was to provide a guide dog to a blind woman in Hawaii so a "dog with the working ability of the labrador and the coat of the poodle", he said. He believes that 'designer breeds' have become increasingly common, and so are the health issues of these breeds.
