I Have been a stay at home Mom for many years (dog Mom too). My daughter is now in college, son in high school. My husband and I are very active, love to exercise and hike. We are also Vegan and strongly opposed to animal cruelty and doing our best for the environment and our health.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We currently have our one Wheaton/poodle Alister. Last weekend we suddenly lost our Trixie. She was a Scottie/poodle. She was my companion and my playmate and I miss her tremendously.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We absolutely need to have a poodle mix. We have only had those types of dogs. After, a little research we thought the golden doodle would be great match for us. I really would love a black one.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do 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?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Yes. I volunteer to walk dogs at a local shelter nearby.

Welcome to the DRC website, Lauren. Just so you know - the mixes you have had are probably non-shedding because of parentage. Doodles who are a mix of a heavily shedding dog with a poodle have a range of shedding from heavy to not at all.
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 also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines 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 (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 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.
