Our Story

Thank you for visiting Joyful Hearts Labradoodles.

Thank you for visiting Joyful Hearts Labradoodles. We are Greg and Maryann Cacace and Mom Patty Pugal. We live in Fayetteville NC along with our 5-year-old son. I am also a Marine Corp Veteran and I am proud to have served our country.
We’re an in-home breeder of multigenerational Australian Labradoodles. Our puppies are descended from the most exclusive bloodlines and are purposely bred to guarantee generations of choice heritage.
Our puppies make amazing service dogs due to their high intelligence and easy training abilities. They are amazing with kids and are allergy-friendly.
Our journey began in 2015 after we relocated to Fayetteville NC from Long Island NY. Shortly after, my mom Patty joined us here in Fayetteville. My mom was looking to adopt a dog and started months of online searches. She fell in love with Labradoodles for their intelligence, non-shedding, allergy-friendly and easy training qualities. Hence our love affair with Labradoodles began. After much research, my mom contacted Jennie Blume of Swinging Gate Labradoodles in Advance NC.

Jenny’s kindness, knowledge, expertise and mentoring has helped us along this journey. We then decided to become a breeder of Authentic Multi-Generational Australian labradoodles. This has been a dream of ours from years past.

Our desire is to share this amazing breed with others and to share with them the Joy, love and loyal companion we have found. So, we adopted a beautiful Chocolate Wavy pup from Jenny Blume at Swinging gate. She was so loved and healthy when we got her. Mom named her Joy, because she has brought us all so much Joy. And so Joyful Hearts got its name.
Joys 1 st litter with King George of Swinging Gate Labradoodles produced some of the most beautiful puppies I’ve ever seen.
From that litter we now have Hope. Beautiful black and white.
And just recently added Daisy May, our adorable Caramel and white. Last year we were blessed with a litter ready for Christmas. These pups brought many smiles and much love to many families.
As Our Journey continues, we birth and raise our puppies in our home. They are part of our family. They share our living areas and have their own heated and air-conditioned nursery and playroom. We begin to lovingly train and socialize them with other dogs and people before they leave for their forever homes. We will send you weekly pictures and videos of your new pup so you can share in watching them grow and see their unique personalities take shape until the day they arrive home with you. You will also have the opportunity to visit your pup.

We are proud members of the Australian Labradoodle Club of America. We work with only the best breeders and prefer low
volume to a high quantity approach.

Our multi-Generational Australian Labradoodles are bred from out of Tegan Park and or Rutland Manor Research centers in Australia. We want to stay true to the vision of those who founded this incredible breed.
