We have had two golden doodles until earlier last year when our older doodle passed away. We would like to add to our family and were made aware of Dixie Chick who is with Cindy Stanton and we’re interested in finding out more.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Yes - We have a five year old, male golden doodle. We had a second golden doodle who passed away earlier last year at 13 years old.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
They are great dogs but one of the other reasons is because my husband is allergic to some other dogs and he has had no problems with doodles.
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 at this time but we support several rescues and adopted our current doodle through Live Love Animal Rescue when he was 1.

Hi Diana, Welcome to the DRC website. Please be aware that doodles, as mixed breed dogs, are not consistent in coats, shedding, or allergy friendliness. All of that varies from one doodle to another. When you have heavily shedding Retriever genes in the mix, all bets are off. Doodle puppies go through a coat change at around 1 yr old, and a puppy who did not shed or affect someone's allergies can very well begin to shed and cause an allergic response once the adult coat has fully come in. Therefore, we strongly advise people with dog allergies not to adopt doodle puppies, and to spend time with individual adult doodles to be sure that the dog will not need to go through another traumatic life change down the road due to an owner's allergies. Please consider these factors when choosing to adopt any dog.
