I am 62 active and still woking as a teacher in elementary school. My husband is retired. We are looking to adopt a young mid size dog.The doodles are beautiful and we are interested.
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)?
We have had dogs all our married (38)years.Just this past Dec. and May we lost our goldens Abby and Duke.They are missed so much but we feel we are ready the have a new furry friend to love.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I just love the look of the doodle with the weavy/curly shaggy coat.Goldens have been our love (we had 4)they are such wonderful pets.Since we are older we want a dog around the 40 lb range, so we thought the med size would work for us.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
no I haven't
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
not a problem
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
not a problem
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No we are not involved.

Welcome!!! I'm the Florida director and live super close in St Pete :) i currently have a foster named Brody who is not yet posted in our site. You can read more about him on my blog. Please make sure you read our adoption policies! We also have a doodle in Tampa named Teddy :)
Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section.! When you are looking at the pictures, notice that 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 you need to be within driving distance of the foster. If you have an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
