Thank you for taking the time to comment on my page. Yes, we are aware that not all doodles are hypoallergenic. We also know that all dogs shed somewhat. Also, dogs pick up hair and pollen and other stuff that can irritate allergies. There…"

We have an 11 year old cockapoo and are looking for a 2nd dog. We want to do a rescue, but have some allergy issues, so it is taking awhile. We are a retired couple with plenty of time to spend with our furry friends.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have a gentle cockapoo, named Maisie, who is 11 years old. She loves kids and other dogs.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We had poodles most of our lives and loved them. We initially chose them because of mild allergies. We branched out to a cockapoo this time. We also love retrievers, but are unable to have one. So a miniature doodle would be perfect for us.
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?
Yes - my wife and grandson volunteer with Home For Good dog rescue in Berkeley Heights, NJ.

It sounds like you have given this some thought. Doodles - like Cockapoos - cause allergic reactions on a dog by dog basis. You were lucky with your Cockapoo and I am sure the same can happen with a doodle. Just be cautious and I would NOT get a doodle puppy simply because doodles go through a coat change which can change the level of allergic reaction. Good luck!
Hi, If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html 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.
