How we started

Hi! We’re the Black family: Jeff, Michelle and Libby, our youngest of 4 children. It all started about 5 years ago when we agreed to take be a Guardian Home for Poodles 2 Doodles, a Goldendoodle breeder located in Iowa. We then started contributing more to Poodles 2 Doodles by helping other Guardian Homes by doing home visits, planning future breedings, or raising litters in our home near Kansas City. We are now a separate sister breeder to Poodles 2 Doodles, having taken over the Goldendoodle breedings completely.

We still use all the same excellent standards that Poodles 2 Doodles employs, and all our pups go home just as happy and healthy as they did before.

About us

We’re a large family! We have 3 grandchildren and we spend much of our time caring for them, along with our puppies. Michelle is a childcare professional of 30 plus years and a life long dog fanatic. She works from home, caring for the children and puppies.

We take great pride in having the healthiest and well socialized pups around! We absolutely love placing our babies with families that will love them with the same passion that we do. We look forward to working with each and every family to help you find the perfect addition to your family!

On the name

You may have noticed that none us are named Shelby, so why are we named Shelby’s Goldendoodles?! It comes from the last part of Michelle, and the last part of Libby to combine into “Shelby”. We just loved the sound of the name and stuck with it!
