My name is Tina and I am a stay at home mom who periodically works as a substitute teacher in Glendora. My husband is an engineer who works in Los Angeles for Metropolitan Water District. We have two amazing daughters; Lyndsay who is a Junior at UCSB and Lauren who will be attending UCI in the fall. (soon we will be empty nesters!) I am a firm believer in animal rescue opportunities over paying for a breeder (although our "Copper" was from a breeder). We are a kind, fun-loving family who has a lot of love to give! We recently lost our beloved Goldendoodle Copper. He was only 6 years old and died of cancer. He was my best friend and the best dog I have EVER had! I would love to find another doodle as I have grown to love everything about them!
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)?
We lost Copper, our 6 year old doodle, to cancer. He was such an exceptional "energy" in our home and we miss him terribly! He left behind our beautiful kitty, Maya, whom we adopted from Petsmart about 8 years ago. She was abandoned in a box in the parking lot.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I first fell in love with the look of the doodles. I saw a lady in our neighborhood walking her doodle "Russel". She found him at Pomona Valley Humane Society. After that, I was set. We had lost our other two dogs, Tonka and Paley (brother and sister from Paley Anderson who ran a rescue in Hollywood)and they passed away one year from the other at 15 and 16 years. So it was time to fill our home with a puppy and I was determined to find a doodle. This is when we found Copper. The only time I have ever used a breeder. We purchased him from Tropico Kennels in Palmdale. He was goofy, loving, full of personality, the ambasador of our community, and EVERYBODY loved him!
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am currently not involved in a rescue but we give frequently to our local humane society. I am, however, known for re-homing lost animals in our community. I walk every morning and come across lost pets peridically. I will always help them find their way back home!
I am here to be a part of the doodle community and to be aware of any future adoptable doodles.
Welcome! Be sure to read the link to DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES The Adoption application form is at the top of the page. Check the DRC ADOPTABLE PETS on our home page. When you are looking at the Adoptable Pet pictures, notice that 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 you need to be within driving distance of the foster. Other suggestions to find a rescue doodle: click on the DOODLES NEEDING HOMES section http://doodlerescue.org/groups/doodlesinneedinnorthamerica ; and check PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within driving distance); also GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check back often.
