Profile Information

Where are you located?
Port Charlotte, Florida
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
We are looking to adopt a sheepadoodle. We firmly believe in rescue/ adopting only. We are in our mid 50's with no children home. Melinda is home 24/7. Grant is a Retail Manager. Our home is 2200sf with an a side lot that we keep mowed. We are partially fenced and will fence in if necessary. We would keep our dog leashed when outside for excercise and potty breaks.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We have 17 parrots that have come from various rescues/ people. They are very well cared for. We have a room set up for them that can be closed off. They have playstands and come out once a day for fresh air and sunshine on our enclosed lanai. We have purchased a large passenger van for them in case of emergency evacuation (hurricanes).
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have given an extreme amount of time researching what breed would best mingle with the birds, having low temperament, friendly, low shedding, playful and a good companion.
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?
Yes
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
We are in the state of Florida. We do not currently volunteer with rescues. We have helped with parrot rescue.

Welcome to the DRC website. We don't get sheepadoodles very often.
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 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.
