"Ok, thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I cannot provide information on the vets we previously used for our pets as I had stated in my application that it was quite some time ago since we had the dogs. They were alway very healthy animals…"
"Hello. I understand the need for the Veterinary reference and I have a coworker who has a Goldendoodle. He reaally likes his Vet and suggested I use his. How do I add that information as you requested? Thank you."
"Tim, one of our hard and fast rules is your providing a vet reference. If you can do that even though you haven't had a dog for many years, that's acceptable. If you can't, please get on the web sites of shelters within driving…"
Married 26 years to my wife Janice. We have 3 daughters Megan 21, Bethany 19, & Kirsten 16. I am a firefighter with the City and County off Denver and been there 19+ years. It’s been a while since I’ve owned a dog but grew up with them until my wife and I got married. We lived in a smaller place until we had our first daughter so we didn’t want to restrict a dog without a yard. After having kids we were busy raising the family and gone with sports all the time. Now that the kids have grown and we only have one daughter full time at home, we are looking to get back to being dog owners.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Not currently but had pets until my late 20’s. E we currently do not have any other pets.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We are interested in a doodle mix because of allergy issues and how smart, active, and trainable they can be. I would like to be able to walk or run with the dog and play frisbee or other activities in the park.
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. Hoping to get one on the lower end of that spectrum.
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?

Tim, one of our hard and fast rules is your providing a vet reference. If you can do that even though you haven't had a dog for many years, that's acceptable. If you can't, please get on the web sites of shelters within driving distance of your home and check them often.
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.
