"Doodles are addictive, aren't they?  I know when I met my first one, I was hooked and didn't even know what it was.   Good luck in your search!"

"Thanks so much for the information.  We have neighbors who have a doodle, and we love the temperament, the size, and the playfulness of the dog.  We are hoping to adopt soon."

"Welcome to the DRC website. Kim, some doodles shed as much as a retriever so ..... Wheatens and Schnauzers and poodles are dogs that don't shed, so might be a better fit for your hubby. Here is a ‘must read’ article with information…"

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Los Angeles, CA
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I am a 57-year old science teacher.. I am looking to adopt a labradoodle.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Last month, our 15-year old cattle dog mix died. Rocko was a great dog, but was a prolific shedder. My husband loved Rocko so much that he increased his allergy medication for the 14 years we had Rocko. We have a cat, Supercat, who is a very large orange tabby.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We are considering a labradoodle, because we had a lab mix, Coco, for 15 years before we adopted Rocko. We are used to dogs with energy and large personalities, and we would like a dog who sheds less so that my husband can breathe a bit easier without increasing medication. We know that all dogs shed, but we are just looking for a breed that sheds less. Also, we are considering Wheaton Terrier and Schnauzer mixes.
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, we have friends who have doodles, and we know they shed, but they do shed less than Rocko.
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Our children are grown, 27 and 24, and live on their own.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not involved with rescue currently. I plan to retire from teaching middle school in a couple of years, and I have thought that being a rescue volunteer is something I would like to pursue.

Welcome to the DRC website. Kim, some doodles shed as much as a retriever so ..... Wheatens and Schnauzers and poodles are dogs that don't shed, so might be a better fit for your hubby.
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 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.
Welcome 2017
