We are a married couple who live in NW CT in the country and have a great house and yard for dogs to play and we make daily visits to the local dog park to play. We are looking for an active and playful labradoodle or some other doodle type dog.Preferably adult or slightly younger.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We currently have one dog, Penny, who will be 2 y.o. next week. She is a lively, playful and energetic pointer mix we adopted from NSAL in LI, NY. We've had her since she was 3 months. She is definitely a dogs-dog. She looks forward to her playtime with her friends at the local dogpark and is one of the parks most exuberant runners and players with dogs large and small. She also loves to chase down balls when no other dog is around. We also have 14 y.o. cat, who basically just lays around, Penny is fascinated by her but she just wishes she would leave her alone. We have had two dogs in the past and they were best friends, we know Penny would really love to have a buddy/sibling to play with in yard (we have maybe a little less than acre fenced in, with over 3 acres total) and keep each other entertained.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We know many doodle variety dogs from the park and other friends. We really like their smarts, looks, playfulness, energy. They tend to be the best dogs at the park for her to play with. We love how they look. AND... we want one that doesn't shed. Penny sheds alot, white needles that are everywhere. We vacuum constantly. But mainly as a companion for Penny.
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?
We have no children and do not need service dog.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
We have never been volunteered for a rescue. I might be interested in volunteering if I knew more about it.

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: firstname.lastname@example.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.
