Our family is interested in adding a dog to our home in the next few months. Specifically, we are interested in large breed doodle mixes.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Currently, we have 3 cats. Nala, approximately age 9, short hair in good health, calm and is social. 'Lilkitty, approximately 3 years old, born with 2.75 legs, rescued from a farm, has anxiety and prefers a quieter home environment to relax. Frannie, approximately 2.5 years old, born with moderate cerebellar hypoplasia, came from a rescue with many dogs and cats and is very social.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Both my husband and I have had labs, retrievers, and cockapoos in the past that we loved. We have not had a dog together for the last 10 years by choice as we did not feel our work and school schedule put us in a position to care for one adequately. We are excited to be moving to a new phase in life that we feel we will be able to provide a great environment for a dog or two to our lives again.
Have you read our adoption policies?
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?
We have informally fostered both dogs and cats in the past to assist them back to health and give them a loving home while working to find them a forever home.
I just read the information listed about "Kish" and wanted to ask if there would be a way to see he does around cats. Also wondering what his current living situation is? Is he in a foster home or group setting, etc. Thanks in advance for any additional information you can share about him.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
