I am a veterinarian. I just lost my 12.5 year old Standard Poodle, Stanley, to cancer. While he could never be replaced, I need something close. I think a goldendoodle would be perfect.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I have a 4 year old Galgo (Spanish Greyhound) that was rescued off the streets of Spain after being hit by a car. He's been through several orthopedic surgeries. He is lost without Stanley He needs a buddy.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I can't replace Stanley as a Standard Poodle, I wouldn't want another. A goldendoodle is perfect in their size, personality and fuzzy huggableness!!
Have you read our adoption policies?
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?
I offer free veterinary advice to SAGE the rescue that I got my Galgo from. I would do that for your rescue too.

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. There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference. Please read them before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. 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 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 OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, 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.
