Married 38 years to my wonderful husband. Have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. Currently with two (2) schnoodles, ages 10 and 11 - one purchased and one adopted. Dogs have been in our home environment since I've been married, typically 2-3 at a time. A big part of our family. Currently looking for either a young goldendoodle or labradoodle, housetrained, good with children and small dogs. We are not interested in a puppy, rather a furry friend between the ages of 2 and 5.
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)?
During our married years, we have loved a silver poodle, a cock-a-poo, shepherd-lab mix, white poodle, and chow - all of whom were loved deeply up to their last day here on earth. We now have the two (2) schoodles.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
As noted above, one was purchased and one adopted through our local humane society. Decided on the schnoodle breed as they love the outdoors and the water and we do a lot of camping - have our own camper. The adopted schnoodle was not very well socialized at the time of the adoption and not recommended to be around children, however, she has been the best girl ever and tolerates the grandchildren rather well - ages 3 to 8. The children are well aware of their limitations with her.
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?
No. I just recently sent in an application to yes....Oodles of Doodles for a female goldendoodle named Annie. Apparently I was not a match for her. I check everyday and she is still on the list for adoption. Even sent a letter to Lynn Fowler to make sure my application was received. THEN TODAY, I found your website and was truly shocked to read about the Oodles of Doodles Rescue Organization.

Thank you for the friend request, Teresa. To sign up to transport go to the volunteer section at the top of the page. The transporting is from shelter or person needing to rehome the dog to the foster or between fosters if it is a long way; not from a foster home to a new home. The new owners must be the ones to pick up and transport the dog themselves. This is to provide the least stress on the dog as possible. This is also why when looking at applications, proximity to the doodles is given preference (all other things being equal).The DRC can always use volunteers.
Hi! I am so glad you found the problems with Oodles of Doodles before you got any more involved. Before applying to adopt here, 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
