Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I am a major dog lover. Had multiple dogs my whole life. For the last 15 years I have had 3 dogs. We recently lost one and there is something missing in our household.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I currently have two dogs.
Hannah is a terrier mix who is 30lbs and she is 6 years old. I also have Zoey. She is a terrier mix as well and she is 4 years old. There previous siblings have been larger dogs... one weighed 110 lbs.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
One of my favorite dogs that I had for 16 years was a cockapoo. She was just such a loving dog. And I certainly couldn't complain about little shedding. Right now we would like to have a bigger dog so it seemed logical to pursue a labradoodle or a goldendoodle or some kind of similar 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?
I have fostered a pair of puppies once but I am not currently working with a rescue group right now. I would totally consider volunteering.

Dana,  check our fb page as well as the front page here.  The two letters in front of the dogs's name on Petfinder is the state it is being fostered in.  If you see a dog that you think might be right for your family, send an e-mail to adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org stating that you have an app on file and would like to be considered for xxx    Also, if the coordinator knows of a dog that she feels fits your family, your application will be sent to the foster  to screen.  You would be contacted if it seems like your family would be a good fit.  You meet the foster and the dog if you are interested.  There are usually multiple potential adopters meeting the dog so we can find just the right family for that dog - and the family can decide whether the dogs suits them.

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 of the foster.

- 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.

sepia welcome
