Profile Information

Where are you located?
North Augusta SC
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
We are seeking a calm doodle, probably on the smallish side. We are in our 70s and lost our fur baby in April of this year.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We’ve been married 53 years and have always owned a dog and a cat. We have a three yo tuxedo sweetheart now so our new baby must be gentle to cats.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Because they tend to be non shedders and hypoallergenic, known for their loving nature and intelligence.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Yes
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Yes
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I was involved with Animal Lovers of Edisto when we lived there. I am not currently involved with a rescue but I daily share postings about rescues locally who need adopting.

Welcome to the DRC website. Many doodles do shed - some a lot! Being allergy friendly is on a dog by dog basis and can change from pup to adult.
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: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.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. We also have a FaceBook page where our fosters often post before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.

Here is some additional information:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
3. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to
4. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
