Profile Information

Where are you located?
Santa Clarita, CA (greater Los Angeles area)
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Our family includes me, my husband Carl, our 10 year old son Lucas, and our 2.5 year old Goldendoodle, Humphrey. We love Doodles and previously adopted another Doodle named Maggie in 2007, who was a much loved part of our family. We also had another beloved rescue boy named Jake who was a Golden/Sheperd Mix. When Jake passed away in 2017, Humphrey was six months old and has since missed having a furry buddy to play with, and Lucas has been hoping for another special addition. Lucas is very gentle and mature and has been very involved in caring for and training Humprey. We all love dogs and would love to welcome a new Doodle as a new part of our family. We have a home in a great neighborhood with an enclosed yard, and a dog park close by. Carl works from home nearly 100% of the time, and I work form home about 50% of the time, so someone is home the majority of the time. Please let us know if you have any questions for us. We'd be grateful to be considered as a potential family for a Doodle who needs a loving home.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Yes, we have a 2.5 year old Doofke named Humphrey.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We love their temperament, intelligence and Doodleisms.
Have you read our adoption policies?
I could not find them on the site.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes
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, and neither of those is a factor
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Not currently involved.

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: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org 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.

Here is some additional information:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
3. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to
4. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
5. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. These dogs are often a mix of dogs that are low or non-shedding.
