Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My husband and I purchased a red standard poodle in 2012 and her sister in 2014. Unfortunately we lost our older girl Reba in May of this year from an Aggressive cancer. We did everything we could to heal her until it was inevitable and better for her. Meghan,our now 7 year old, iwas lost without her alpha sister. She has finally returned to normal after her grieving process. We wanted to wait to rescue until we all healed. We have much love and caring to give. We are highly responsible parents as you could tell by our vet records.
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)?
Yes, Megan red standard poodle 38 pounds
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We love all the varieties of doodles. We have determined to rescue rather than purchase because there is such a need to rescue. We are open to any type of doodle.
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. We have no allergy issues and we owned cats for many years and understand shedding completely
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
We have no children and we are not intending to use any dog for service work
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I could send you my most recent involvement and rescue. We live in the mountains in North Carolina and during hunting season all of the hounds go little bit crazy. We make sure that all of them gets sent back to the proper homes by going onto the different sites locally. In one instance a beagle was not claimed. We fostered it. We ran it through all the proper tests and got it additional shots at our expense. We fostered it until a qualified family was interested and then met the family midway of a 9 hour drive. They love the dog and it loves the other dogs in the family. I think it might be hard for me too foster doodles because I would want to keep all of them. But volunteering we are wide open to do. My dear friend volunteers and fosters Great Pyrenees and she is inspiring.

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 or PetFinder) 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 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. Our FaceBook page often has photos of the dogs being fostered before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
