My husband and I are dog people. I even quit a successful career as an accountant to be able to devote all my time to my dogs. We currently have a six year old standard poodle and lost our two and a half year old labradoodle in a tragic accident. (I will always have a hole in my heart for my baby boy!) We are lost without a second dog and truly love doodles. We are desperately trying to find a large young cream colored active healthy doodle for our active lifestyle. We would prefer to adopt a rescue over purchasing a puppy. Please help us find our future boy.
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)?
Bo...almost seven year old very active standard poodle.
Bucky...almost six year old Berman cat.
Little Girl...Bucky's literate sister.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have owned one and adore this breed. Active, goofy, muppetlike. Love that the are low to no shedding. They do not have that dog smell..but do have the cutest little stink breath and feet! They are super smart. Intuitive. Playful. Athletic. Oh...and they LOVE snow and water! Literally the perfect dog!
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?
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. If you have an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
