We are a family of 4 (myself, my boyfriend of 7+years Tim, and my 2 daughters 13 y/o and 11 y/o) and we just purchased our first house together. We only had one other dog (full bread English black lab named Conan) that was Tim’s father’s. When his father passed away suddenly in 2015 we took him in. Tim had been around Conan since he was a puppy and we had the space. He enjoyed “retirement” as I call it perfectly with 2 loving girls and lots of love until his health and age made us have to chose to put him down at 17 y/o. We have not decided to get another dog until we new we had the space and time for one. We are ready now with our nice big home and yard. We live in a quiet community with plenty of streets and local parks to walk and take a dog. We recently tried to adopt a pyre doodle but were not chosen. We are ready to seriously look for the right rescue dog now. We dog sit for several friends and family (golden doodle, Bernese mountain dog, black lab, and Australian Shepard/collie mix) and we are ready to find one of our own!
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
1 - 13 y/o cat named Manny - has been with Tim since a kitten.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My brother and sister-in-law have a golden doodle named Sheldon and we dog sit him regularly. After that we learned so much about the breeds of doodle mixes and they are just so perfect for our family.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?

Welcome to the DRC website. Here is a ‘must read’ article with information you should know before you apply to adopt a doodle: http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/information-for-anyone-interested-in-adopting-a-doodle. Here is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. http://doodlerescueinc.ning.com/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. The application itself is at the top of any page, but here is a link: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2. The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator. Quite often, a new dog who comes into the program is adopted before he/she is ever listed, because our adoption coordinator is aware of a good approved applicant who would be a good match for that dog. However once you have an approved application on file, if you see a dog under the DRC’s care (either on the DRC Facebook page, doodlekisses.com home page or on our home page) that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: email@example.com stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
When looking at the adoptable dogs here, Petfinder, or our FaceBook page, notice the two letters in front of the dog’s name mean the state they are being fostered in. While the DRC allows out of state applicants, they cannot transport the rescues and will not let them fly, so adopters need to be within driving distance to pick the dog up. We also have a FaceBook page where our fosters often post before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
