"We have had several different kinds of dogs including Jack Russell Terrier,  shepherd collie mix, and poodles. We realize even poodles can cause allergies. We like the idea of a doodle because of the personality of the mix.  "

Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Looking to rescue a Goldendoodle
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)?
Just lost our Jack Russell Terrier after 16 years. He did not get along with other dogs in his later years. We usually have at least 2 dogs. Before him we had poodles that lasted 16 to 17 years.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Need a dog that is non or low shedding. My wife's allergies seem to have gotten worse over the last few years.
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, hopefully we can get a low shedding dog
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?
Not at this time

Hi, 
 If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html
The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it’s present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat. http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/the-truth-about-dog-allergies-and-doodles
Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://www.doodletrust.com/education/doodle-alergy-myth No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
