I am trying to help and support my son's family find and adopt a labradoodle. They live in Mill Valley, CA. They are looking for a family pet to be a good companion. I have 2 granddaughters, 13 1/2 and 12. The younger one is suffering from anxiety issues, and according to the doctors, she could benefit greatly from a having a dog.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I have a 3 year old Australian Labradoodle, who is just the best dog ever.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Great temperament , intelligent and adaptable.
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?
I used to work with a local Golden Retriever rescue as a home checker. I might be interested in volunteering with your rescue.

Welcome to the DRC website.
Angela, this information is to pass on to your son. They must have owned a dog before and have no expectations for the dog other than to become a beloved family pet.
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.
