"DO you send dogs to the Minneapolis area. I am 72 live in a town home and looking for a good companion. I can not fence my back yard buct several neighbors have a twice a day walking club I am able to take the golden doodle out…"
I am looking for a mine to medium sized goldendoodle. I live in a townhome. I am single no children. I am missing having a dog in the home. I grew up with dogs since I was 9 years old. I have owned 3 dogs in my life. A springer spaniel, rescued spaniel and dachshund. I have gone without a dog for to many years as I traveled a lot for my job and worked long hours.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
No I have owned 3 dogs.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I need something hypo allergenic as in my old age I am allergic to dogs that shed.
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?
I can take a bit of shedding just not a dog that sheds constantly.
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Yes-no children in home. Nor husband I live alone
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No. I am interested in giving a dog a forever home.

Charlotte, we are nationwide so there could be dogs on your area. That you want a senior dog is wonderful. Please put that on your application!! We do require that you and the dog meet in person before a final decision is made as to whether it’s a good match, so a potential adoption meet up would need to be within your ability to do that.
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.
