My husband and I are looking for a super sweet dog. We live in the country and have 3 outside cats. We have grandchildren that visit only a few times a year. We love to go camping.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We just lost our Spaniel last fall and are still sad. He was a rescue who we had for 7 years. He died of a probable brain tumor. He had significant skin allergies and was on a special diet and foods. He also had developed Cushions disease his last few years. He also needed surgery on both back knees within 9 months of each other and then required Physical THerapy 125 miles away once a week. I would do anything for him. At the end he lost his hearing and then his vision. I was his seeing eye person. He was so wonderful and we took him camping all over CO, WY, NE, MT, UT, and a few bigger trips. He was like our kid. We've also had 2 large outdoor farm dogs previously but that was years ago. We sometimes have horses or cows in our pasture. And we still have outside cats who sneak into the house for snuggles occassionally.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We are looking for a sweet dog who would like to be loved and pampered. A dog who is easy going and enjoys car rides, enjoys visiting friends with dogs, camping, and snuggles. Doodles are always so sweet when I approach them during our travels.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Yes I have
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes that is not a problem
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?
No I haven't been Maybe in the future.

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 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.
