I am a dog lover! I've been the parent of a few doggies in my lifetime and there's nothing like them. They bring so much love and joy into your life. I would love to adopt a Labradoodle but they are somewhat difficult to find so I'm hoping you can assist.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I currently do not have any pets.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have experience with labs and they are just the best. My grand pup was a chocolate lab and we were the best of friends. She was a big hunk of love and I just adored her! I had a rescue that was a cockapoo (half poodle)who passed 8 years ago and it's been lonely without him. I love the look and personality of a lab but I have allergies.
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 would love to volunteer as my time permits as I work full time. I plan on making a commitment to volunteer at a shelter once I retire.

If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html
The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it's present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat. http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/the-truth-about-dog-allergies-and-doodles
Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://www.doodletrust.com/education/doodle-alergy-myth No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
