We are looking for a doodle to rescue. I have been looking for months for the right dog for our family. I think Snickers might be a good option. Of course, I would want to meet her to be sure that she thinks we are a good fit for her too. :)
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We currently have a shitzu that is 4 years old that we love dearly. We'd like for her to have a playmate and we are "dog people".
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We know a couple of people that own doodles and we've had several labs over the years. Our oldest passed about 5 years ago at 14. We still miss him terribly. We think a smaller doodle would be a great addition to our home.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes, that is not an issue. We are not allergic.
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, that isn't an issue for us. We are empty nesters.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am heavily involved in sharing rescue information through Facebook, but I am not specifically involved with a rescue. I would consider volunteering at the right level.

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 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.
