My wife and I ate looking for another Golden Doodle. We have an awesome Golden Doodle, Gracie that is 8 years old but in exceptional condition. We walk, hike or run 3-4 miles every day. I also work with a certified non profit dog rescue in North GA named Ruffdogrescue.com. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters and surrenders and last year place over 500 dogs in wonderful new homes. I do occasionally foster some of these dogs and my Gracie is great with these dogs, helping to socialize them. We get a lot of awesome dogs, but my wife and I have fallen for these Doodles and we would love to find an F-1 golden doodle rescue if possible and would love a dog 1-2 years old but will also consider a young dog or puppy. Please contact me - I promise whatever dog we choose will have an amazing life.
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)?
See above- 8 year old golden doodle, great with people, children and other dogs including foster dogs we occasionally keep for 1-2 weeks.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
They are the best dogs I have ever owned. Love their unique, quirky personalities.
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. We have a Wavy doodle that does some minor shedding. That isn't a problem.
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?
Yes. Work with Ruffdogrescue in north Atlanta. We place 4-500 dogs from high kill shelters into great homes each year. I am certified to do home checks, rescue dogs , etc. I only foster about 6-7 dogs a year and usually only for a couple weeks at a time since our dogs are generally adopted within 3 weeks after quarantine, vetting and being spayed or neutered.

Hi John, You are more likely to find an adult dog in rescue than a puppy, so that is a plus. If you are interested in adoption be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. If you haven’t already filled out an application, be sure to get one on file. 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.
