I would love to adopt another doodle
I had the great pleasure of sharing my home with 2 beautiful doodles.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
My oldest was a loving boy named Murphy, he left me 3 weeks ago, he was 13.
He passed away, having pancreatitis .
My female was sweet and so much fun, she was 10 , she left us 5 months ago, with cancer of the spleen and liver
Murphy was so lost without Katie,
I am having a very hard time saying goodbye.
Both beautiful cream labradoodles.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I can never replace Murphy or Katie ,
I want to share my life and my home with another doodle.
I have a large home, with a big yard, and a woods.
The bike trail , is just minutes away,
I am retired , so I have lots of time to share, and care for a doodle
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes, I sure do.
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
No children at home, both are grown
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, I am sorry to say, I am not.

Hi Bonnie, I am so sorry about Katie and Murphy.
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
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. 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.
