I am 64 and I do not work. My daughter, age 26, no longer lives at home and is in CT. My husband of 27 years works in DC full time now after being in the Army and retiring as a Colonel. He works with Homeland Defense and commutes when possible. When we were engaged I had a cocker spaniel that I rescued at 6 months, who was eight then. Richard’s orders read that he was to go to Iceland. I found out Brie couldn’t be go with us so told Richard I couldn’t marry him and would wait until he returned to the States. Richard requested another assignment! The five of us moved to Indiana with two Persian cats I also had at the time too! They have since passed, both at 16.☹️ I try to have two of each, so they have company. My fur babies are my babies! My husband and I have decided that we would love another labradoodle, as Tinkerbelle is getting feeble, and I don’t want a puppy for Daisy, a playmate/buddy is what we had in mind so they could grow old together!
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
I have lived here since 2000 on ten acres in Brooksville (left by my grandmother to my Mom and then to us) with three acres/yard fenced for my mini-labradoodle names Daisy, who turns 7 on May 21st this year. We also have a six lb Yorkie named Tinkerbelle, who is deaf now and mostly blind, but knows the drill, as she has been here since she was 8 weeks old and will be 16 years old on September 15th this year. Every day with her is a blessing! I have been looking for another sweet female labradoodle to play with Daisy and keep us company. I just read your description of Snickers to my husband and he is excited for me/us, if we qualify. And of course, a meet and greet with Daisy and Tink!❤️ Tink and I bought Daisy together.
Recently we lost our daughter’s Burmese cat to old age...she was 16.☹️ We have a Siamese cat named Taxi that is 17 now, as I was told by the vet that she was 7, when I found her in my tire well.
I believe Daisy and Snickers would get along fantastically! Daisy is the most well behaved dog I have ever had, and it seems that Snickers could teach her a few/lots of things from her bio. I hope you will consider meeting with us!
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have a 6 year old spayed female mini-labradoodle who is playful and loves to run when outside! Inside the house she has managed her way into our hearts and onto our furnitur, ever since she was 5 1/2 months old, when I went to a breeder in Brooksville. She loves it whenever my friends bring their dogs over, and if I travel she is in the puppy room at the kennel with the smaller dogs (she is 27lbs) as she is so gentle, and she loves Tinkerbelle! The owner of this kennel said she would love to have Daisy as her own. I don’t think so! If you need references, I will gladly share information with you. My heart skipped a beat when I saw Snickers...she looks just like I imagined!
Have you read our adoption policies?
Yes I have!
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?
I am now! No problem with either of these!
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I Share ads with people whenever I see a pet that they have indicated they are looking for or need to find a home immediately, and I donate to our local Humane Society. I don’t know what you would expect as a volunteer, as I live around 50 miles away.

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 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 to pick the dog up. We also have a FaceBook page where our fosters often post before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
