Looking to adopt

I have been trying to figure out the best path in adopting a golden doodle for our family. So far this is seems to be the most legitimate rescue I've found. I'm right outside of Houston, Texas how can I go about finding an adoption in my area or Dallas ?

Where are you located?
Montgomery, Texas
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Me and my family are dog lovers. My wife has always wanted a golden doodle and grew up with a golden retriever as a child. We have been looking at breeders but they are extremely expensive to purchase. We would rather rescue a loving doodle that needs a home if possible.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have a one year old English bulldog that is the apple of my eye ! My wife has an 18 year old poodle that may not be with us much longer. We also have a 5 year old multipoo that we rescued in TN 4 years ago.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My wife loves both breeds of dog retriever and poodle and has always wanted the mix.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Yes
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
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
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
We are not involved currently. We are open to volunteering.

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: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.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.

Here is some additional information:
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. There are not a lot of mini doodles in rescue so if you are looking only for a small doodle, please look at the shelters where there are often small poodle mix dogs. These dogs are often a mix of dogs that are low or non-shedding.
Welcome 2016
