I am dog lover. I had a yellow lab for 13 years. She was an absolute joy and was truly a family member as my children were growing up. I have wanted a labradoodle or goldendoodle for a very long time, but had downsized and knew it wouldn't be fair to a dog that size to live in a small condo. We have now purchased a home, with a fenced yard, and want to add a family member to our household!
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
we have a 12 year old mixed breed dog. Australian Shepard / chow mix. She has always lived with other dogs, but her mother passed away a couple of years ago.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I love the disposition of a lab/golden retriever and the intelligence of a poodle!!!
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?

Many of our doodles never make it to be posted on Petfinder. If they are on Petfinder you will see them on our home page. The DRC also has a facebook group that you can join and many posts are updates on already adopted dogs, but many are about dogs coming up for adoption. Go to the home page here and scroll down to your left. You will see Discussions or Blogs. For example I recently posted one entitled Meet California Buddy. I cross-posted it to our DRC Facebook Page. Buddy has not even been posted on PetFinder because we have some approved applicants who might be the right family for him. Once your application is in and approved, you can e-mail the adoption coordinator about any dog you see in the DRC program whether they are on PetFinder or a discussion is posted about them. Hope this helps.
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. It includes a link to our adoption guidelines. Please read them 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 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.
