Profile Information

Where are you located?
Boston MA
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I have had dogs all my life. My last dog, Cody, was a wheaten terrier and I absolutely loved and adored him. He died of renal failure 10 years ago and up until now, I didn’t feel ready to have another dog. I retired a year ago and feel this is the perfect time to get another dog as I miss not having one so very much.
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)?
I do not have a dog now and yes I have owned 2 dogs with vet records in my name.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have friends who have had golden retrievers and poodles and I feel like both breeds have important qualities. Goldens are so incredibly friendly and good natured and poodles are so smart and also friendly, thus golden doodles have the best of both breeds. I have friends who have golden doodles and they all love their dogs. I am a bit envious as I also want a golden doodle to love, care for and to establish a special friendship like I had with my other dogs.
I am looking for a golden doodle that does not shed as I have allergies.
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, I would need. golden doodle that is allergy friendly and doesn’t 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?
Yes, I do not have children.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not involved with Rescue though I have contributed monthly to ASPCA for over 10 years.
I am a clinical psychologist and this know and appreciate what some of the challenges are around adoption. I am a warm, engaging and friendly guy who knows how to help people and dogs feel safe, comfortable and relaxed.

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.
