I am married, I have tree grown children. I am retired. My last pet was an Airedale whom I loved to death. We had him for about 10 years. He became I'll and had to be put to sleep. That was at least 3 years ago. I am now ready to get my undying love to another pet. I would love to raise a goldeddoodle puppy.
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)?
As previously stated, I had an Airedale. I raised him from a puppy. He was a beautiful dog and a loyal companion. He had high intelligence, or maybe I just think that because he was mine :-)
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I have never had a doodle. I have a very close friend who owns two of the most beautiful white golden doodles. I see the temperament of the doodle and I have read about them. I believe we would be a perfect fit.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not involved in any rescues at the moment. If there are any of these beautiful animals that are homeless, I cannot stand by without trying to help one by giving him a wonderful home

Hi! Before applying to adopt, be sure to read the link to DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES (application at top of page) 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. Here are some other ideas for finding a rescue doodle:
Click on the REGIONAL LISTINGS section which lists poodles and mixes from other organizations and shelters around the country -- click "Follow" right below where it says "Replies Are Closed For This Discussion" and you will get email notifications when new listings are added.
PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within your driving distance); GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. 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
Be aware that very few puppies come through DRC. Most of doodles are at least young adult dogs. Keep checking petfinder if you are set on adopting a puppy and you various shelters will occassionally have puppies.
