My husband and I are looking for a poodle mix to add to our family. We currently have no pets and our son is 23 and is living out of state. We prefer to have a dog who is a year or two old and who is potty trained but we are open to a puppy or a dog a little older than 2. We need a hypoallergenic dog. We prefer one that will be around 20 pounds but he/she could be a little bigger or smaller.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
No. We had a poodle mix who died a few months ago. He was 15 and died of cancer. We are missing him dearly.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Our past dog was a poodle mix and he was smart, mellow, and very loving. He was potty trained and well behaved. We like the fact that he didn’t shed because I’m allergic to most dogs.
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. I would like to make sure that I’m not allergic.
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. We don’t have children.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No. I can’t help right now.

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: email@example.com 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.
