Profile Information

Where are you located?
Northeast Indiana
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My husband and I just lost our man dog Max to cancer. He was an integral part of our family & we miss him. We have had a golden doogle before, several labs, a rottweiler/german shepherd, and golden retriever/border collie. All of our dogs have been rescues/adoptions and we'd love to go down that path again. However, we're not opposed to going through a breeder.

We live on 4acres and have a lot of time, attention, and love to give another dog. We're very active and are looking for a dog that will join us outdoors. Our dogs always stay inside with us & will not be chained up, in a kennel, or left outside unattended. Our dogs have always been extensions of our family and have been indoor pets.

All of our children are grown and out of the house. We have grandchildren but they are never at our home alone.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
As I mentioned above we just lost our dog Max. We've owned numerous dogs and have no other pets at this time.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We love the disposition of labs and golden retrievers. My husband has allergies and that (in part) is what has attracted us to golden and lab doodles. But we DO understand that some shed and are not allergy friendly. That's okay - we still want a doodle.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Yes.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes.
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
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No we're not currently, and yes - we would be very interested in volunteering somehow.

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: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.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.

Here is some additional information:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
3. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to
4. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
5. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. These dogs are often a mix of dogs that are low or non-shedding.
