My husband, Keith, and I have been married almost 28 years. We raised 2 boys who have both grown and moved on. One lives in town and the other is serving in the US Navy overseas. I am a middle school teacher, and my husband owns his own roof/gutter/window cleaning business. I grew up with a miniature poodle, and when I moved out on my own, I owned a dalmatian. After she died of old age, I waited several years before considering owning a dog again. When our sons were quite young, we rescued a basset hound. She grew up with our sons. She died in June, 2012. We are now ready to welcome another furbaby into our home. Having grown up with a poodle, I understand their temperament. We have several friends that own labradoodles or goldendoodles, and we fell in love with the breed. We are ready to rescue (or be rescued) by one.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have no other pets.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I've had prior experience with poodles. My siblings and parents have had poodles over the years, and we appreciate this breed. We also have friends that own labradoodles or goldendoodles, and have really enjoyed spending time with them. We believe this is the type of dog that would be perfect for the two of us.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
yes--we have no allergies
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?
I am not involved with Rescue other than the fact that I rescued a dalmation and a basset hound (not at the same time). They both lived out their lives in our home very happily.

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. There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference. Please read them before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. 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 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 OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, 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.
