Our family consist of me, my husband Michael, our 8 y.o. daughter Rylee. and a 3 y. o. bichpoo named Rocco. They are both as sweet as can be. My pre-children were 2 English Cockers I adopted. I completed Obedience with them and they both became registered Therapy Dogs with TDI. I designed my own internship (and was approved) around pet therapy. It was great I got to take my dogs to work everyday and get college credit. At the time I was the first person at Old Dominion University to do an internship with pet therapy. I would love to get back into pet therapy and start to introduce my daughter to it. Rocco our BichPoo would be great EXCEPT... he gets car sick so therefor he really does not like the car very much.
We have a fenced in back yard (6ft privacy) and an inground swimming pool (and dogs are allowed). We are an active family with lots of love to offer. We live in Norfolk, VA. Rocco has his regular vet check-ups and is groomed regularly, I can provide refferences from both places. I work from home most days so no one has a chance to get lonely around here.
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)?
First of all I love the personality of Labs, Poodles and Goldens. We are surrounded by many of these dogs (friends and family). We have a friend who has a labradoodle and we have loved him since we met him. I have to say I like most breeds but I am partial to breeds mixed with poodle. That all started since we got Rocco (Bichon/Poodle). He is a great little dog and he gets along well with children and dogs.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I have become very fond of doodles after doing quite a bit of research and being around several. I would really like to get back into pet therapy and introduce Rylee to it. I like the temperment, intelligence and athleticness of Doodles. I also think they are a good size.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Not involved with rescue but i appreciate all your hard work and dedication. I have always adopted all of my animals. I also had a cat many years ago who adopted me.
