I love Doodles! In fact, I love all animals. I currently have a 90# Goldendoodle named Gatsby. He will be 9y/o at the end of this month. I also have #2 ~ 6y/o rescue cats. I’m looking to rescue another Goldendoodle but perhaps a tad smaller. My 90 pounder takes up quite a bit of lap space during fireworks, etc. So I would like to keep in touch for any possibilities now or future.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Currently own a 9y/o Goldendoodle and 2 rescue cats. Have had 2 Goldens prior, 2 Gorden Setters and numerous small pets for my children. Also have experience raising farm animals although that was many years ago.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I love Golden’s and my husband was raised with a miniature poodle. I really love the personality of my doodle. He goes everywhere with me and has never been kenneled. Neither were my Golden’s. Of course they’ve all been spoiled with way too many toys but...
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Yes. I have to be honest and say that my yard does not have a physical fence. It does have an electric fence but I am 99.9% of the time out with my animals and they also get walked on leashes.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Definitely! Golden’s shed *a lot* and Doodles less but, yes they still 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?
Yes. No small children. Only older grandchildren.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Not involved in rescue and volunteering is unfortunately not an option at this time.

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.
