Profile Information

Where are you located?
Maine
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I am about to retire and have traveled for the last 8 years preventing me from having a dog. I'm so looking forward to it again. Doodles who own several of my friends seem to be the best dogs EVER!
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I've always had dogs, from my first dog a mixed breeds (beagle/dashund), a series of Golden Retrievers, to my last dog who accompanied me to England and Sicily, Italy for 3 years, an amazing Australian Shepherd.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
They are intelligent, incredibly smart, and have an amazing vocabulary-did I say they are smart? They also come in varying sizes and I am adamant about getting a medium/small dog as I live in a very small house.
Have you read our adoption policies?
No, but I will now.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
No, but I am not allergic. I'm equally worried about the cost of grooming so that mix of fur may be an asset.
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, I am now.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, I'm still traveling part time, and will not be able to adopt until February.

Welcome to the DRC website. Curry, grooming can be a factor in choosing a doodle. It is very smart of you to realize this - I didn't have a clue when I got my first doodle. My shedding doodle needs frequent grooming also, but some don't.
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. There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference. 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.
