Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
We had a Bernese Mtn. dog for 12 years. Loved the breed and got her because my wife's allergies. Near the end of the 12 years, my wife started having allergy issues. Not sure if it was related to the dog, hence, we are looking into the variety of Doodle breeds.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Personally, I have had three dogs: a Shepard/Malamute mix (in the 1980s), a Doberman/Black Lab mix (in the later 1980s-early 1990s), and the Bernese Mountain Dog. The last dog was with my wife, Lea Anne.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have chosen this breed to steer clear of my wife's allergies...
Have you read our adoption policies?
Will do after leaving this page...
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?
Our last dog was a rescue, from the in Indiana.

Good for you, Brian!  You might also join the website  It is a social website for doodle owners and those interested in them.  There are lots of informational groups that can be quite helpful - grooming is doodle directed, but nutrition, training, for example, could be helpful for any dog owner.

 If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds:
The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it's present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat.
Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
