Hello, I have been around poodles all my life. My grandmother had many, my family had one that I grew up with and since I’ve been married we have had four. The 2nd and 3rd were from a rescue. They were a bonded pair. When one of them passed we bought our current dog Toby from a local breeder. About a year ago The other rescue dog passed away and we now feel it is time to get Toby a companion. We got lucky and were able to rescue from a local shelter. We want to do a rescue again and we have fallen in love with every doodle that we have ever met. We are interested in a female doodle as Toby seems to get along much better with female dogs.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
I think I answered that in the previous dragged out paragraph. We currently just have Toby.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Although Toby loves to cuddle he likes to play as well and from what I have experienced with other doodles I think it would be a great match.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I believe I did but I read it briefly and I will go back and reread it
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes I am.
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?
I have not been ever involved in rescue and I would not be against volunteering.

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.
