Hi I just joined and am a little confused if I can submit my application immediately, even though there are no available rescues in my area? I completed the application and tried to submit it but got the message that I needed to name the dog that I was interested adopting.I will continue to check PetFinder and FB, but does this application also alert other sites to notify me when doodles are available? thank you, Pauline YoungSee More
I am 73 years old and a retired school psychologist. I live alone, and want to adopt a dog who loves to get total attention, loves car rides, and would prefer to be with me all the time.
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)?
I have had 2 wonderful rescue Great Pyrenees. Sam was 7 when rescued in 3/2006, and he passed in 8/2011. In 8/2011 I rescued my beautiful 2 year old Paxie. He developed canine ALS and passed on 5/13/2021. Yes I had a traveling vet so Paxie would not have to walk down stairs as he aged.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I LOVE the sweet dispositions of doodles. They are as sweet, smart and affectionate as GP's.
My neighbor has a lovely Goldendoo, and as a puppy he stayed with Paxie and me every Thursday while his parents worked. Thursdays were my favorite day of the week because Finn would be hanging out with us. He was great with both of us. I would drive both of them to a park and, like Paxie, Finn loved to ride in the car.
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 I am aware of both. My Great Pyrenees were World Champion Shedders, and I didn't care in the least. It never occurred to me that shedding was a problem until I began to search for another dog, and rescue groups would "warn" about shedding. Funny!
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 have no children
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I used to volunteer with New England Great Pyrenees years ago. Did home studies and some volunteer at dog shows. Yes I would appreciate being involved with volunteering again.

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 or PetFinder) that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.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. Our FaceBook page often has photos of the dogs being fostered before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
