Hi there, we are a family of four. Mom, Dad, 10yr old son, and grandma. We are looking to adopt a golden doodle who will add to our family of 2 rescued border collies (Oso and Ladie).
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)?
We currently own 2 dogs. We rescued 2 border collies about 10 years ago.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We are looking for a family dog that has the ability to get along well with children and older adults. We've spent a lot of time volunteering with various rescue shelters where we've come to learn a lot about various breeds. From what we've learned, observed, and researched, a golden doodle is the best fit for our family and our ability to care for that breed.
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?
Greg, my son André, and his Gammy, volunteered with Border Collies in Need and with other organizations who provide therapy services.

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, doodlekisses.com home page or on our home page) 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 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. We also have a FaceBook page where our fosters often post before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
