Profile Information

Where are you located?
Kennesaw (Atlanta), Georgia
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I will retire in early 2018 and would love a walking, hiking, boating,car riding, and cuddling companion. I've had dogs in my home, since I was 7 years old, that's 50 years! I adore them!!! Our 15 year old (rescue)dog passed last summer, I miss him AND not having a dog. A dog makes a house a home. Due to my work traveling, we've waited to adopt a dog,until I am home full-time. I thought I'd register in case a rescue becomes available. If one does become available prior to my retirement, my husband works from home and my daughter lives close-by if necessary; she has two rescue dogs.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We do not have any pets now since Ozzy passed away in July 2016. He was a rescue mutt. My daughter and son-in-law have two, female rescues...my granddogs. They come to play in our large, fenced-in yard and have a ball!
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have two friends with goldendoodles and one with a labradoodle; they are so sweet, full of personality and fun! Poodles are playful and smart while, Golden's have a gentle, and easy going demeanor. We have a boat so we'd like to take him/her swimming with us.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Not yet.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
I understand that they shed some.
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
That doesn't apply to us. We are a couple with grown children who live elsewhere. We'd like a companion in our home.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No, but may do so once I retire.

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.    There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference.  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 <span style="text-decoration: underline;">OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES</span> 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.  <span style="text-decoration: underline;">GOOGLE</span> 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.
