Katherine, our guidelines want you to have owned a dog previously.  The reason for this is that rescues come with their own 'baggage' that requires their owners to have some dog experience to help the dog through it.  I know we all need to start somewhere in our dog ownership, so I suggest you look at reputable breeders, or perhaps a local to you rescue. I don't suggest Craig's List because owners are often not honest about why they want to re-home their dog, and you could end up with a dog with major problems that you don't know how to deal with, or at the very least one that simply doesn't fit into your lifestyle - for example a dog who is way to active for you, or you want to take it places and it is not a dog that does well in new/strange situations.

Hi, 
 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.
