We are a family of 5, 2 adults (my husband and myself), 1 child (13 years old), box turtle and hermit crab. Our family has been dog-less since 2017 when our dear Hensley passed away. We miss taking a dog on walks, hanging around the house with us and snuggle on the couch. We have purchased dogs from breeders in the past, but this time we would like to rescue a dog who really needs a loving home, because we have a lot to give.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We currently do not have a dog. We have had dog members of our family our whole lives. Our last member was Hensley (Irish Terrier) who we had from a puppy till his death (2017) at the age of 10 due to diabetes. Before Hensley was Sebastiann, a Rottweiler. I had Sebastiann from a puppy till his death from cancer (age 10).
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have had several dogs in our lives (Irish Terrier, Rottweiler, Cocker Spaniel, Basset hound, German Shepard..the list goes on) each from a puppy till their passing. We have met several Doodles and fell in love. We like their playful energy, their wanting to be in a family (pack) and cuddles. I am a stay at home Mom, so I would be with him/her all day, take with me to pick-up the child and take with us when we go. We keep our pets for life as they are a part of our family.
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?
Yes. We are not concerned about dog hair.
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. Our son is 13 and has been around dogs his whole life.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, we are not involved presently with a Rescue.

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.
