Profile Information

Where are you located?
Simi valley, California
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My husband and I have always had dogs, cats and horses. All our animals have gone over the rainbow bridge and we are now ready to adopt another dog. I love labradors and would love a labradoodle due to them not shedding and nature as we have grandchildren now. We live on a half acre lot in Bridle path in Simi valley, so lots of area to run a big dog. Don't want to buy from a "puppy mill"
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Our blazer was a lab/malamute cross 120 lbs. Lived to be 13. Dog before was a white long hair mix, lived to be 12.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
As previously stated.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Where are they written?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
No?
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 live with us.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No

Welcome to the DRC website. We have a dog available for adoption right now that is 80 pounds. He is a real snuggle bug but he also has some issues - needs a calm, adult only home, must be the only pet and new owners need to use a program like 'nothing in life is free' and/or consult a behaviorist/trainer. He is a re-home and is house broken, loves to play fetch, is an anxious boy.
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: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.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.

Here is some additional information:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
3. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to
4. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
5. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. These dogs are often a mix of dogs that are low or non-shedding.
