Have had dogs most of my adult life. My last fur baby passed 4 years ago. Have been waiting for a dog with less allergy causing fur and one I could adopt. Will patiently wait for the right fit. I work only 3 days a week. Own a home. Have a fenced in yard. Have only adult children. Husband and daughter live with me for the extra caring hands a dog needs. I'm a nurse. I love every living thing but I'm mostly a dog person.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Currently none but have had up to 3 cats and have had a lab for 13 years who passed in 2008 and an American bulldog who passed in 2014.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My allergies have gotten worse with my age and this breed, although they are NOT hypoallergenic and I understand this, is much easier on them. Also their sweet temperament make it a breed I have grown to love. I babysit one from time to time.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes. I am aware.
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 presently actively involved.
I am interested in helping

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.
