I am a retired X-ray technologist. I am interested in adopting a rescue. I currently have a rescue retriever mix who is 14 years old a a rescue chihuahua mix who is seven years old. No small children at home.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
The senior dog I currently have is going through some medical difficulties, related mostly to age. He has become more aggressive and territorial, especially if I am present. He’s guarding his mom! For this reason, I am not actively searching for a rescue doodle at this time. It would not be fair for my older baby or any new rescue. If permitted, I would like to be able to learn more about the care and raising of the beautiful doodles. When the time is right, I’d love to adopt a rescue.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I love all the doodle mixes, love their spunk and the fact that they want to be with their people. I am home all day and can take my dog whenever I do go anywhere.
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?
I am not currently involved in any type of rescue although my 15 year old daughter and I plan to volunteer for our local rescue this summer.

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 OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, 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.
