When I say Coccolina, behind her are 30++ years of similar looking dogs that make the line what it is today as all those who have contributed to that line, which I had called line 1 get the same amount of credit and that credit goes back to Mrs Hélène Pêtre…Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco.
The Barbet, Vieux Barbet is a breed threatened with extinction.
The Barbet Moderne, re-incarneated as of the mid 80’s early 90’s is yes, a rare breed but that is only due to the fact it has not existed for very long. The Labradoodle is not much older than the Barbet Moderne!
