I gave my daughter a golden doodle and fell in love with it.
I have always been a dog lover. My family always had dogs, mostly poodles and Scotties. I would like a doodle because they are smart, sensitive, and have great dispositions.
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 have always had at least 2 dogs at a time, sometimes 3. We now just have one dashchund. She loves my daughter's doodle.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
They are smart, sensitive and have good dispositions. I keep my daughter's doodle when they go out of town. I've been looking for about a year. Would prefer a small female.
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?

Please know that adopting a dog is not necessarily a way to save money that it would have cost to purchase from a breeder. I have 2 doodles. 1 from a breeder and 1 that was adopted as a rehome. While I didn't pay as much up front for the adopted dog I have spent that money in other ways. He was not well socialized in his old home so I spent a lot of money on training classes to teach him basic obedience and to work through many of his fear issues. I also recently found out that he has allergies (a life long condition). I have spent well over $1000 to treat his ear infections and perform the allergy tests. Now that he has been diagnosed, I know that I will be paying at least $500 a year for his immuno therapy shots for the rest of his life. That is in addition to the regular doggie things like food, toys, and grooming not to mention any other medical issues that pop up and regular vet visits too. I'm not trying to discourage you from adopting (the dog from the breeder could very well have the same issues) but I just want to make sure you are aware that adoption doesn't really mean a discount in the long run ;)
Hi! Before applying to adopt, be sure to read the link to DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES (application at top of page) 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:
Click on the REGIONAL LISTINGS section for doodles with other organizations; PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within driving distance); GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. 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 water lily pond pictures
