Welcome! My name is Jo Smith. My husband Ron and I live with our “Doodles” in Orland, California. We are north of Sacramento in Glenn County. Orland is a small farming community where Ron grew up on his family’s almond farm. We are West of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and East of the Mendocino National Forest. We enjoy taking our “Doodles” to romp and play in the nearby Sacramento River and Black Butte Lake.
I was first introduced to the Labradoodle breed while on a cancer walk in Seattle, Washington. It was LOVE at first sight! After I returned home, I researched the breed and found the answer for my instant connection to these beautiful animals!
We got “Ozzy” our first “Doodle” in 2008 from Jubilee Labradoodles. He was purchased as a family pet. A year later, we became a guardian home for Sutter Buttes Labradoodles, and acquired our “Irish Rose” aka “Rosie”. After becoming owners ourselves, Ron & I decided that we would like to open our home up to raising this wonderful breed. We are so excited to share this joy with others. Our hope is to offer both Multi-Generation Australian Labradoodles, in a variety of colors. On a rather special note, Rosie is therapy certified through the Delta Society for Pet Partners. She is trained for visiting hospitals, convalescents, along with schools and people with special needs.
We chose the name “Serenity Springs” from the “Serenity Prayer”. As it is through God, we have found peace and acceptance with the things in life we can not change. He gives constant courage to change the things we can and with His wisdom, He will continue to guide us through life. Since the purchase of our “Doodles”, we have found a definite sense of serenity and joy.
