Riverside CA area
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Hi! We are active empty-nesters and are very interested in getting a dog to share our home and time with.
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)?
We have no pets at this time. Lost both our 2 Danes roughly 3 years ago to separate medical issues. 1 was a rescue HONEY(3-5 yrs old upon adoption) and 1 was purchased by a private breeder MIDORI(10 weeks old upon adoption).
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
With some research this type of dog seems to fit well into our current lifestyle. I work at home. We are former Dane owners, but can't bear such a short life span. This (Doodles) are an intelligent breed, they settle well but are still active.
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, that is ok. No allergies here, and we have a Dyson, lol.
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, also ok, does not apply to our situation.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, not at the moment. Our Great Dane, Honey, was a rescue. One of the best dogs I ever knew it was 7 years of bliss knowing her. We planned to go to a Rescue organization when it was time to look again, because of her.

Oliver has already been adopted.  He was a cutie, wasn't he.  He had a couple of hundred applicants I think.  Grover is another doodle that was just rescued and just listed.  He is a smaller guy like Oliver.  Another California doodle is Luna.  She will be a re-home. She has some health issues (allergies) that I am aware of.  Luna is a full size doodle.  Then there is Sully.  I think he is still available.  He was rescued when his owners dumped him in a kill shelter who called one of our volunteers.  He is also full sized.

Hi Karen and Ryan, I also live in Riverside.
If you are interested in adoption be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. If you haven’t already filled out an application, be sure to get one on file. You can find the application at the top of any 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. If you have an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).

Here are some additional information for you:
1. Here 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. Here 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 in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often. We often pull dogs for the DRC so I KNOW there are doodles in the shelters in Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles Counties. In fact my son's dog is a rescue from Devore and ours is from Mary Roberts Pet Adoption Center (they rescued him from the Moreno Valley kill shelter.
