My family and I love animals. We have two cats and two dogs. Our cats are a nine year old himalyan, a seven year old stray that we found in Maui and brought home. Our dogs are an eight year old collie-who was diagnosed with lymphoma three years ago and is in remission and a two year old mutt that that my daughter brought home because this couple came to where she was lifeguarding and told everyone at the pool, they would drown the pups, if they couldn't find homes for them. We have been looking at labradoodles and have decided to rescue a dog, rather than buy a puppy.
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)?
Please see above.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have had a standard poodle in the past and he was a very good friend to our family. Unfortunately, we lost him when he was nine years old. The last week that he was alive, the only change that I noticed, was it would take him a bit longer to get up in the morning. Onve he would get up, he would be his old self. When we came home from my daughter's middle school graduation, he wouldn't get up. We took him to the emergency vet and lost him that night. We have been reluctant to get that breed again, but now we feel the poodle mixed with a lab-a hearty, great family dog, that would be a good match for us.
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?
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?

Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section.! When you are looking at the pictures, notice that 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 you need to be within driving distance of the foster. If you have an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
