Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My husband and I chose not to have children. We have our animal companions instead and although spoiled, they also mind their manners. My husband works shifts so often has days off in the week. My commute is an hour each way and I work 9 hour days which gives me every other Friday off. We have plenty of time off to spend with our dogs and, on the days that my husband and I overlap, we have a dog walker come and take Henry and Reese out and do some training with them. See below...........
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)?
My husband and I have two smaller poodle mixes, both puppy mill rescues; Henry is 20# and Reese is 15#. We would love to add a third dog to our family and after researching breed personalities, would like to rescue a Labradoodle. Henry loves everyone and gets along great with other dogs. It has taken us over two years to rehabilitate Reese and she is still fearful of strangers and avoids other dogs (we fostered a shih Tzu over Christmas and although not affectionate towards him, Reese did share the same space as him after two weeks). We are looking for either a young dog that will respect the rank of the established pack, or an adult dog that still has energy to keep up with our 4 and 5 year old but not play too rough (Medium sized is probably best) and is more submissive. Also, we have an elderly cat and my husband and I often foster/rehabilitate other cats from the local shelter I volunteer at. We would travel to meet a potential match as would like the whole family to be part of the process.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
We are hoping to adopt a doodle.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes.
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Yes.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
We foster for my local shelter but I am signing up as a potential 'adopter'.

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. Click on the REGIONAL LISTINGS section which lists poodles and mixes from other organizations and shelters around the country -- click "Follow" right below where it says "Replies Are Closed For This Discussion" and you will get email notifications when new listings are added;
3. 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
4. PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within your driving distance);
5. GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in doodles, adoption, and DRC. Take a look around the site and be sure to read the Policies and Procedures:http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES and let me know if you have any questions.  

 

You can also look at the Regional Listings section for a listing of other adoptable dogs in your area:http://doodlerescue.org/group/doodlesinneedinnorthamerica -- these dogs are at shelters or with other rescues so their adoption criteria may vary.

 

Here is a good article for potential first time doodle owners:http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/things-to-consider-before-you-get-a-doodle
