Woodstock, Georgia
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Recently lost our 9 year old Golden to renal failure. She was our second Golden. Love the breed but interested in a doodle due to allergy of our adult daughter. She and her sister have a 2 year old doodle and she does well with him but reacts when with our golden or my other daughter’s golden. Interested in rescue as we have a 13 year old terrier/poodle mix and I feel like a puppy might be too much for her.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have a 13 year old terrier/poodle mix who recently lost her sister (golden). They were a bonded pair and after having single dogs as well as a couple bonded pairs, my husband and I vowed to try to keep 2 dogs. We have had 3 in the past (2 Golden’s and this terrier poodle mix who is now alone).
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
As stated above, we’ve had 2 goldens, my oldest daughter has had 2 also, we love the breed, but my middle daughter has allergies and reacts nasally around the goldens. My 2 daughters who live together in Mt Pleasant SC are frequent visitors and we visit them and the dogs are with us. These sisters have a 2 year old doodle that she does not have a nasal reaction to and we love him.
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?
Ok
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No
I’d need to know more about volunteering.

Don't we all want less shedding! :-}   One of my doodles sheds like crazy and he would never be allergy friendly to anyone.  I was lucky with my other two.  They don't shed, however one mats so much - really high maintenance.  I wouldn't change them for anything, but I sure am happy that the two don't shed.  Good luck in your search.

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.
