I'm interested in adopting a doodle. I lost my dog of 13 Yrs a number of years ago. I am now ready to be a dog owner once again.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
My dog, Dixie, was an adopted shelter dog. She was a mix of Labrador and greyhound. She was MY dog. We adopted her when my children were teens. We would all pile together on the floor every morning and love on her when she was a puppy. She was very anxious when we got her at 4 months but quickly gained trust in us. She knew all of the basic commands. She would catch popcorn in the air and loved it! She could jump, literally, four feet straight up to grab a ball out of your hand! She was amazing in every way. Even my parents loved her and they aren't animal enthusiasts like my family. I will miss her the rest of my days. She got sick and eventually passed peacefully in my arms... We lost a member of our family when we lost Dixie.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I think they're a beautiful dog. I like it that they aren't shredders and somewhat hypoallergenic as I have a daughter in law who's sadly allergic to most every kind of animal. I've read that they as abreed have great temperaments. I have 6 grandchildren and need a calm breed relatively speaking. Would even interested in a senior doodle.
Have you read our adoption policies?
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?

Welcome to the DRC website.
Here is a ‘must read’ article with information you should know before you apply to adopt a doodle: http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/information-for-anyone-interested-in-adopting-a-doodle. It includes a link to our adoption guidelines. Please read them before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. The application itself is at the top of any page, but here is a link: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2. The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator. Quite often, a new dog who comes into the program is adopted before he/she is ever listed, because our adoption coordinator is aware of a good approved applicant who would be a good match for that dog. However once you have an approved application on file, if 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: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
When looking at the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, 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 to pick the dog up.
