Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We recently put down our beloved Cassidy due to multiple health issues. She was 14 1/2. We stillhave Bear the 12/13 yo Poodle and recently inherited Peppy a poodle mix ofsome sort. We beleive him to be about 9 years old.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
While I understand all dogs have dander, my husband and son have allergies. Theyhad no issues with Cassidy and have had no issues with Bear or Peppy.
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?
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?
Not much. I donate and support where I can. I work full time.

Vet records in your husband's name are just fine. The allergy thing is more complicated than most people realize so we try to make sure that each doodle can be different as to how allergy friendly they are. Both poodles and Maltese are considered allergy friendly, as are a number of other breeds. We insist on personal meet and greets for our adoptive dogs and their prospective families, including current pets. You would want to make sure that your husband and son interacted with the dog with petting etc. so they would know if there was a reaction or not. Good luck in your search.
Hi, If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it's present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat. http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/the-truth-about-dog-allergies-and-doodles Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://www.doodletrust.com/education/doodle-alergy-myth No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
