We are a two dog family! We currently have a 12yr old mastiff mix with cancer and would like to get on a list for a doodle for our next dog. We have a lake house we go to every weekend. We saw Milo. Adorable
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Stewie 12 had since a puppy and has cancer
Aibileen 4yr old rescue lab mix and isn't a lake dog...go figure! she likes pontoon rides tho!
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We want a large dog doesn't shed much and likes water!
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
hoping for the non shed. we have two shedders now so not that worried!
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, my concern is that the dog can't be around kids at all. I have a lot of grand nieces and nephews who come around occasionally.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Never thought about it. I might be interested.

It isn't that a doodle can't be around kids. Doodles can make wonderful doggy companions. We don't adopt to families with young children because so many doodles are first time dog purchases by families with little kids that have no idea how to train the dog and the children proper ways to interact, then dump the dogs in a shelter. Because we have no history on most of our shelter dogs, we never want to put the dog in a possible situation like that again. Dogs and children can learn not only to co-exist, but to love and adore each other. Both need training and supervision.
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.
