I am looking to adopt a Goldendoodle or Labradoodle. I currently have a 10 year old Goldendoodle named Riley I adopted several years ago. He was hours from a cage in ACCT Philly. Riley and I are inseperatable. I am home all day so if I need to run out, Riley goes with me.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My doodle Riley is beyond precious to me. I have no other dogs. I have a large backyard that is completely fenced in. The doodle that I adopted grew up with other doodles and I would like to adopt another as companion for Riley, for myself and companion for the adoptee. We have a lot of love to give.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Yes, indeed I have read it.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes I am aware that they shed. If I'm not mistaken their hair grows at the same rate as human hair and they need to be groomed. My boy gets "his face tightened up..lol" every 3 months and nails every 6 weeks. My family doesn't have allergy issues.
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 i am aware. My childen are much older. My daughter Lyndsey is 22 (7/17/97). She is in her last semester at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa.. My son Jack is 16 (2/2/03). He is a junior in high school. He is an Eagle Scout with Troop 102 in Levittown, Pa.
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. There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference. Please read them before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. 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 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.
