I am a pediatric OT and my husband is a pediatric pulmonologist. We have 2 teenagers and are ready again to adopt a dog(s) into our currently dog-less home. We have had 2 German Shepherds and 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks at different times. Our white German Shepherd had bad hip dysplasia, so as medical folk, we wanted Max to enjoy life and not experience constant, crippling pain. Max had 2 hip replacements 6 weeks apart. I used my therapy skills to rehab sweet Max back to his regular dog life.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have had 2 German Shepherds and 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. We adopted Vanna from a breeder who was going to get rid of her because she was "frigid" and of no use to him. In addition, the breeder had a vet come out and sever many of his Shepherds vocal cords. He received complaints from neighbors that his dogs were too loud and someone actually poisoned some of his dogs, so he took this measure to keep his shepherds safe. Poor Vanna's bark sounded like she was a block away. We have also had typical Texas varmint such as turtles, fish, frogs, rabbits, and the like!
We are currently dogless!
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have researched the doodles extensively and decided that their personality and needs are perfect for our loving family.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Yes...all of it!
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, looking to adopt again.

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. 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 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 OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, 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 of the foster.
