My husband, Joe & I are looking to adopt a dog or two, females. We own our own home, it has a fully fenced backyard on about 3/4 of an acre. We both work for Local School Districts and are early 50's. We love dogs and have had 4 Golden Retrievers thru our 32 yrs of marriage.
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)?
We have had 4 Golden Retrievers, Floyd our 1st doggie as a married couple. Wonderful boy, really great dog, he was 13 yrs old., raised as a pup. Molly, was 6 yrs old, cancer took her way to soon, we rescued her from an elderly woman. Chloe was our next beauty, loved her so much, she just passed this last April, she was 10 yrs.old. We raised her from a pup. When Chloe was 4yrs old, we rescued Brooklyn from a friend who passed away. Brooklyn came to us at 2 yrs of age, he is now 9 yrs old. He is a great dog, misses his buddy Chloe very much.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We love Retrievers and poodles. They are really smart, loving, family oriented dogs. Enjoy their lovingness.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
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?

Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section. When looking at the pictures, notice that 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 of the foster. If there is an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
Hi Jody, there are often doodle-type dogs available thru other rescue groups or local shelters. The best way to find them is to do a search on Petfinder, using your zip code and "Standard Poodle" as the breed, since there are no "doodle" or mixed breed options. You will want to do a search at least 3 times a week if not every day; as I mentioned, these dogs are in great demand in rescue, and they tend to get adopted quickly, especially younger females.
