My husband and I are retired and we've always had several pets that we have adopted. We had a golden retriever named Sadie who died two years ago and just last night our 15 year old cat Dexter died. I told my husband we need to start looking for another pet to love.
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)?
I grew up with all types of pets and learned at a young age to care for all animals. We've have taken in several stray cats; had them all neutered and raised them till they passed away. Our golden was like our other daughter (that's what our daughter liked to say). We've missed her so much but I had to be ready to adopt another dog and I didn't want to compare her with Sadie so that's how I got to thinking about a doodle. The same sweetness but a little different look. Anybody who knows us says they would like to come back as my pet. We really care a lot for all animals.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
I love their personalities and how sweet they are.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Shedding is not a problem. Am use to that.
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! If you are interested in adopting 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 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: 1. Here is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle 2.
