My sister forwarded information about Mack, a bernadoodle who is in the Bethesda area and needs a home. We recently lost our almost 15 year airedale mix (a rescue). We lost our Wheaton terrier (rescue) in November at age 12. The hole is huge. I retired a year ago and feel I have one more puppy in me. Our children have agreed to take the dog should anything happen to both my husband and me, We live on an acre and 3/4 in Darnestown. A large portion of our yard is fenced. We have a good sized doggie door and live in a very friendly dog neighborhood. A good portion of our yard is treed and lovely for dog walking, too. We will be looking for another dog or puppy .
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)?
Pamela Mendelsohn and Steven Mendelsohn. Our veterinary records are at My Family Vet-Peachtree Animal Hospital Bealsville, MD (Route 28), 301 349-4790. Dr. Clarivel Salazar. Our dog died last week. (Please see above.) We do still own a cat. Together in our 36 years of marriage my husband and I have owned a Terrier mix, a Labrador and a beagle, next a Heinz 57 pup from the Frederick SPCA and a terrier mix from Fairfax SPCA, most recently we have had two rescues a Wheaton terrier who died in November 2020 and an airedale mix who just died.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Our last two rescues were both very intense dogs and we really want a friendly happy dog, we don't have to watch around friends. They were ours, we adopted them and we learned how to cope with their intense personalities, but it was difficult. Every doodle I have met with the exception of one has been so delightful. We have three in the neighborhood. One is just a year and just looking at him makes you laugh. He has such a zest for life. It just seems like a good match for this point in our lives.
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-not a big deal.
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?
I am not involved in Rescue other than having adopted rescues and contributing to and shopping at several animal thrift shops. I would be very interested in volunteering with your rescue.

Welcome to the DRC website. Here is a ‘must read’ article with information you should know before you apply to adopt a doodle: http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/information-for-anyone-interested-in-adopting-a-doodle. Here is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. http://doodlerescueinc.ning.com/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. The application itself is at the top of any page, but here is a link: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2. The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator. Quite often, a new dog who comes into the program is adopted before he/she is ever listed, because our adoption coordinator is aware of a good approved applicant who would be a good match for that dog. However once you have an approved application on file, if you see a dog under the DRC’s care (either on the DRC Facebook page or PetFinder) that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
When looking at the adoptable dogs here, Petfinder, or our FaceBook page, notice 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 adopters need to be within driving distance to pick the dog up. Our FaceBook page often has photos of the dogs being fostered before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
Hi Pam, welcome to the DRC website. Mack is new to our rescue & foster care, and really shouldn't have been posted anywhere yet. We are still getting to know him and determine what type of home would best match his needs. The previous owner strongly feels that he needs both a fenced yard and another high energy dog in the adoptive home. We don't know how he is with cats. Please feel free to submit an adoption application for him, and our adoption director can tell you more about his status. We do have many many approved applications on file from people who are waiting for the right match, so it would be a good idea to get an application in if you would like to be considered.
