Looking for a golendoodle or labradoodle to adopt. I have had numerous labs in the past and they have crossed the rainbow bridge at ripe old ages. I am an attorney on the verge of retirement which is good because it gives me more time with my dog.
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)?
Currently my dogs have all passed and only my daughter's three dogs are still at my house. I have grown up around dogs and miss having that friend dearly.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
This mix has been a goal of mine simply because I believe they are everything I look for in a long term family member.
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?
Not at the moment...however I plan on volunteering at the local shelter once I retire in April. All my dogs in the past have been rescue animals.

Thank you for the friend request. If you want to learn more about doodles you might want to join doodlekisses.com - it is a social website for doodle owners/lovers. There is a southern California group who meet up about once a month, usually at Arbor Dog Park in Seal Beach. We have all sizes and types of doodles.
Here is a link to our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES to make sure that you understand and meet our adoption criteria. For example you MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section. When 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 adopters need to be within driving distance of the foster.
The application itself is at the top of any page. It is a good idea to get one on file. Here is a link to the application: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2 If there is an approved application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: email@example.com stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog). The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator.
Here is some additional information to help you find a rescue doodle:
1. This is an interesting article that points out dog breed differences genetically, especially mixed breed dogs like doodles: http://www.animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Multimedia-Infographics
2. This is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
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. GOOGLE shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
5. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. The white ones are often Bichon/poodle mixes, which would be guaranteed non-shed.
