I am 53 years old. I just had to send my 10-year-old beagle to beagle heaven. He passed away of cancer. He was a rescue and my best friend. I 85-year-old father lives with me. He is in great physical shape and loved to walk Rocco daily. I only work eight hours a week on Saturdays. Someone is always home. I am looking to adopt/rescue a doodle. Preferably under the age of five and a puppy is fine. I am going to train. Please consider me for a forever home. If your process is To Foster first, that is understandable.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
My 10 year old beagle, Rocco, recently passed away at the age of 10. I have had five cats over the past 30 years. I have also had Budgies (Parakeets). So I am aware of the time and care that a fur baby or feather baby takes.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I had Rocco, my beagle, before my father moved in with me. When he came to the house he had slight allergies which we attributed to the different vegetation on the Cape. However, when Rocco passed away His allergy (constant runny nose but that was it) therefore I would prefer a breed that is slightly more hypoallergenic. In addition a close friend has a labradoodle named Floyd. I love him!
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?
Yes, my Dad’s allergy was very slight with Rocco. Therefore, if my doodle baby was a heavy shedder or no -hypoallergenic that would be fine.
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, no children in my home. Neither do I have any visitors that have children.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not involved. I would consider volunteering if it entailed a service I could provide.

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: 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 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.
