I am married with two children. I have had dogs my entire life. My grandmother came home when I was little with my first dog. She saw someone hitting the dog with a baseball bat and she took the dog and brought it to me. Since she passed I have always had dogs that were in need. My dog of 16 years recently passed. We rescued him from a kill shelter and he was so special. My brother rescued a dog who was neglected and malnurished. Her kidneys were failing from lime disease. With medication and love she is doing wonderful. Dogs require work but they give us back so much more in return. Since my home feels so empty without a dog companion I am seeking to adopt another life long friend.
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 think doodles are adorable. (See above regarding my other pets)
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I have a friend who has a labradoodle named Sailor. She is wonderful with the children, plays catch, enjoys car rides and has such a happy personality. I also like the idea that she does not shed so she does not affect her owner's allergies. I was so impressed with her and since I am seeking a dog I thought I would look into rescuing a labradoodle.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I have rescued dogs from kill and no kill shelters in the past to be my life long friend. I am currently seeking another dog who wishes to be my friend.

If not Maxine, there will be another wonderful doodle needing a home. Keep all your options available and your eyes open. We were not even looking to add to our pack, and yet there was Clancy before our very eyes and needing a home. It just was meant!
I thought I'd just call you but couldn't catch you. In a nutshell, after your application is submitted, if it lists a specific dog you wish to apply for, a headquarters vol reviews it and it it passes our first review as a "good application" we then forward it to the foster parent or regional director who together with the headquarter vol (ie me, Jac or Karen) interviews the potential candidates and then makes the decision for which home/family will best meet the needs of that dog. There are many variables that you may not realize, for example if the dog has been a stray and there is a good potential he will try to escape if given the opportunity, we will look for a family that meets all our criteria as a "good applicant" and ALSO has a securely fenced in yard, some dogs have separation anxiety issues and need to be with a "stay at home parent" who will be willing to work on rehab exercises and having an existing dog in the home is also a bonus.
FYI, Maxime has already had >100 applicants. We will not start interviewing candidates until next week. We will save the "good candidates" applications that have not been selected for other dogs that come into our program that might be similiar. You can periodically send us an email telling us of your continued interest in adopting a dog.
Fostering for our program is a great way to stay involved and a nice benefit is that if you decide to adopt the dog you foster you are considered first before any of the applicants.
Hang in there and if you are a little patient, I think we can help you find a WONDERFUL
4 legged family member.
Be sure to complete an adoption application so you will be considered for doodles that haven't even been listed on petfinder yet. Be as thorough as you can to tell us all about you and the home you can provide for your doodle.
