I'm looking for a loyal companion, I've had many REALLY large breeds and fell in love with the labs, owning several Chesapeake Bay Retreivers and a Yellow Lab. I researched standard poodles and a neighbor recommended the best of both: a Labradoodle
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)?
Last 4 dogs have been either special needs or rescue. Deisel-Dog, my current rescue, is 12 years old, resscue Staffordshire. Owner was going to put him down after getting hit by a car and dragging around a dead leg for SIX MONTHS, they didn't want to pay for removal. I saw him through that only to find out he had heartworms! Saw him through THAT horiffic journey and he has been heartworm free for 2 years. He and we are ready to introduce a friend. When we took him I had my yellow lab and Chesapeake and they got along great, we have many stray cats I feed and he ignores them, gets along great with my grandchildren.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
In researching my next dog I was interested in the standard poodle breed and one of our neighbors has one. I like their size, intelegence, loyalty. Combine that with how much I loved my labs and sommeone mentioned the Labradoodle. Now I see them everywhere and looking for a female a year or older and a male a year or older, prefer chaocolate, blond or fawn but will consider broadening those parameters.
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?
All my dogs have shed ... but 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 and neither apply to me.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?

Hi Christal, We don't adopt out two doodles at a time to the same party unless they are a bonded pair which doesn't happen that often. Color isn't something we take into account when evaluating a dog.
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. The application is at the top of any page. It is a good idea to get one on file.
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. If there is an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
