About Us


We are Kyle and Mindi McMillan. We live on a small, family farm in rural Sheridan, Indiana. Our family has always loved animals and we have dogs, cats, Highland cattle, Gypsy Vanner horses, mini horses, and chickens.

When one of our eight children was diagnosed with severe developmental delays, he used a Canine Companion to assist in his therapies. We were excited that he qualified for his own Canine Companion but knew that the labradors offered in the program would not work for our family as we were all allergic to our beloved lab, Xerxes, and could no longer keep him inside our home with all of the allergies. Looking into the perfect fit for our family, we found the Australian Multi-gen Labradoodle and knew we had found the right match! We purchased our first breeding girl from Adelaide, Australia and had never seen a labradoodle in person! Filigree walked off the plane and we were smitten. Our original breeding stock all originate from Australia and the established lines of Sunsethills, Rutland Manor, and Tegan Park. It is now possible to find wonderful dogs in the United States so we all work with breeders in the US.

We look forward to donating one Australian labradoodle puppy every year to assist in developmental programs with children and to having our doodle families watch this area of our program grow!

We donate one puppy each year to an organization or individual to assist in helping programs assisting developmental delays. We were one of the major corporate donors for Noble of Indiana’s Orchard in Bloom for 2010. In 2006 and 2009, we donated a pup to Mothers of Preschoolers International (www.mops.org). In 2008, our donation was to Indiana Canine Assistance Network (www.ican.org) and assisted St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild benefitting Wishard Hospital in downtown Indianapolis. Mindi is a life member of St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild. It has been our dream to start a therapy dog program with SMHG and Wishard. As such, we were thrilled when Indiana Canine Assistance Network, ICAN (www.icandog.org), partnered with SMHG and Wishard to share the gift of Canine Companions. We are honored that many of our dogs have gone on for full therapy dog certification through Medical Mutts in Indianapolis, IN.
