(Griff typing)... My younger daughter is off to Virginia Tech and we're now empty nesters. Anabel works part time and I am beginning a "work from home" role next month. We're ready for another family member (actually 2).
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 lost both of our pets, a Pom and a Cocker, within the past 3 years. We have been waiting until now (Madison off to Tech) to begin to find a rescue.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
They are the right size and temperament for us. Anabel has had Poodles, and I have had primarily Labs, Huskies and Goldens throughout my life.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I have. Every word, even the parts that don't apply. No issues.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Not a concern
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
See above. We are 47 and 49, empty nesters, work from home.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not. I relocated to Florida approximately 18 months ago. Prior to that we (daughters and I) volunteered for the shelter in Chesterfield County, Virginia. But I have not been involved with a Rescue group.

Griff, I loved your response to our question about adoption policies. I positively KNOW that you read it. So many people that apply say that they have read our policies, when it is obvious from their page entry that they haven't. If you haven't filled out an application, please do so. You can find the it on the top bar. It is a good idea to get one on file so that when you see a dog on our list, you would already be approved.
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: email@example.com stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
