"Dear Nancy, Ned, Clancy and Charlie,
I understand your concern. I love all three of the breeds, have spent time with them, and truly enjoy their personalities. Please keep my application active. I really feel that a doodle would be a wonderful…"
"Linda, Thanks for clarifying. That doodles are always hypoallergenic and non-shedding is marketing hype - that's the goal but they are a mixed breed dog and what they inherit from is not the same each time. "
"Hi. Thanks for your concern. My allergy to animals is not very strong. We have had cats and dogs over the years. I just sneeze a bit and have to wash my hands after cuddles in order to keep my hands away from my eyes. If I played with a doodle…"

We have had several rescue dogs. The have all passed on (crossed the rainbow bridge). I am allergic to most dogs. We miss having a dog terribly and want to share our lives with a pet to love and pamper.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Over the years we have had several cats, Ratso, Little and Little Arthur. We have also had four rescue dogs, Sam, Jesse, Dutchess and Tiger. The dogs were a mut, 2 Bouvies and a softcoated Wheaton Terrier.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Because we like larger dogs, I'm allergic to most dogs and would like to try a doodle. They have a lilt in their walk. There are several in our neighborhood and we adore their personalities.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes, but many that I have met do not effect my allergy.
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?
Not at the moment.

Linda, Thanks for clarifying. That doodles are always hypoallergenic and non-shedding is marketing hype - that's the goal but they are a mixed breed dog and what they inherit from is not the same each time.

The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it's present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat. http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/the-truth-about-dog-allergies-and-doodles
Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://www.doodletrust.com/education/doodle-alergy-myth No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
