I have a 6month male lapradoodle who I love dearly, unfornutely my two autistic children are afraid of him. Love to keep him, however it was not my plan for my children to be afraid.
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)?
He is getting nuetered tommorow oct 21. I have two cats, thought they were adjusting well untill my dog started to chase them. I AM at a loss because he is great when it is the dog and I. Did basic training, but at times escpecially with the children he does not want to listen to me.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
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?

Thank you for the friend request. My husband and I are retired special ed. teachers and can understand your wanting a dog for your children. Having a relationship with a special dog can be such a wonderful thing. Most likely you would need a dog trained in service work and training for the children in how to be around dogs. Good luck.
The very first thing that must be done is to contact the breeder. All reputable breeders have a clause in their purchase contracts stating that they must be contacted prior to transferring ownership of the dog. The very best breeders will take the dog back; most will give their permission for the dog to be rehomed through a reputable organization like DRC, but they must be given that option. Here is a link to our rehome guidelines: http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_REHOME_GUIDELINES The next step after contacting the breeder would be to submit a rehome application: http://doodlerescue.org/page/rehome-assistance-form
