I am mother of 3; grandmother of 2 (granddaughter (Maltipoo) with 4 legs). I have had the pleasure of having 4 amazing dogs in my life. 3 were rescued and one we actually purchased from a local breeder (terrier mixed, border collie mix, golden retriever/Great Pyrenees, pure golden retriever). My husband and I are recently semi retired. We just purchased our retirement land (17 acres) on a lake where we will eventually be living and would love to have several dogs.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
Our last pup, Cocoa who was our pure bread golden unfortunately passed away in May of 2020 due to cancer, we tried to save her with surgery removing her spleen however it was the bad kind and ultimately she passed within 3 weeks of emergency surgery. Our vet is Clay Animal Clinic in Orange Park, FL and they have cared for both my recent dogs, Buddy the Golden Pyrenees, Cocoa the Golden and now my grandson, Muffin who is a Maltipoo.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I’m interested in a doodle due to allergies my grandson has to pets, we are currently caring for my daughter’s Maltipoo and my grandson does fine with her. Plus they are extremely intelligent animals. I would eventually live to have 3 of them! I prefer to adopt a rescue to be sure that they gave a good home. All of my 4 legged children have lived well past their time because they are well cared for and loved as a member I the family. The only one who passed early was our Cocoa due to cancer and even she was 10 and in otherwise great health. I love dogs, there is no truer love than from a dog, it is 110% unconditional!
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?
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?

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.
