Tony and I are looking to adopt a goldendoodle. We are a married couple (children grown) that has had pets in the past, but no pets currently (our dog Jade passed away a year ago). We are university professors (Tony is in psychology; I am in health services management at East Carolina University). I saw "Charlie" (petdetail/30501994) and wanted to know more about him. Has he been adopted? We live in a lovely neighborhood, perfect for dogs. We exercise daily (walking or jogging) and can give him much attention.
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)?
Currently, we do not have any pets. In the past, we have had dogs, cats, a goldfish, and one time, a rabbit adopted us.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My husband's colleague introduced us to her goldendoodle as I have recently developed allergies.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
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?

Hi Leigh, If allergies are a concern, you should know that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html While doodles are great dogs, not all of them are non-shedding or allergy friendly, even if they don't shed. Doodles also have a coat change from pup to adult that can cause a change in allergic reactions to them. Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/the-allergy-mythcourtesy-of No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype.It really is a dog by dog basis, especially for mixed breed dogs. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES
Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section. When 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 adopters need to be within driving distance of the foster.Charlie is being fostered in New York which is about 8 hours from you.
If an application is approved and on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: email@example.com stating that there is an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
