My husband and I live in a big home with a large fenced-in area. We lost our doodle and are ready for a new dog. We would love to rescue another Labradoodle
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 no pets now that Cosmo is gone. We've always had a dog in our home, rescued dogs w problems- requiring meds, aggressive toward men, etc. but we loved each one and provided them with a good, forever home.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
The first doodle I ever saw drew me in by its good looks and friendliness. Talking to its owner I learned of the doodles intelligence and other personality traits. We found our doodle and fell in love with with him and the breed: smart, goofy, energetic and friendly to everyone.
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?
Yes, Cosmo did
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Yes, we have no children
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, only by adopting our last 3 dogs thru rescue services.

I am so sorry about Cosmo. Here is a link to our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES to make sure that you understand and meet our adoption criteria.
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.
The application itself is at the top of any page. It is a good idea to get one on file. Here is a link to the application: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2 If there is an approved application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog). The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator.
Here is some additional information to help you find a rescue doodle:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
3. 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
4. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
5. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. The white ones are often Bichon/poodle mixes, which would be guaranteed non-shed.
