Meet Scout - a 1 1/2 year old 25 pound scrumptiously black doodle. Who could resist this face?

Yesterday we transported this darling girl between foster homes.  She has the most beautiful and expressive face and those eyes - would melt concrete. …

Where are you located?
Riverside, California
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My husband and I are retired elementary school teachers in Southern Ca. We have 3 grown children and one darling grandchild.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Our doodles were born on Saint Patrick's Day, 2008. One is a small medium apricot Australian Labradoodle that we named Ned, and the other is an apricot/cream doodle named Clancy. Gordie, our Springer Spaniel, is a sweet soul who just doesn't know how to assert any authority.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We had two dogs and weren't looking for another, but we met a small Labradoodle when we were camping and fell in love. We immediately went on the internet and learned as much as we could about doodles and ended up with a smaller sized Australian Labradoodle that we picked because he just charmed us with his personality and antics.
Clancydoodle had been rescued from a kill shelter by our local pet adoption center. Ned and I met Clancy at their fund raiser and I was in love again. The rest is history.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how?
I would like to help. I think I could help with clerical or telephone tasks, and my husband and I could transport.

Thanks for the info! I have already filled out an application for Chloe. MA to NJ isn't too far!

Hi. Thank you for the welcome. I would love to meet Pilot but he is too far away from California. I will stay in touch by continuing to check the adoptables page.

Thank you so much! I will be working on those applications. I look forward to being involved in a great group.

Thanks for your note.  We are willing to travel to pick up our doodle and are accustomed to having our pet groomed every 4-5 weeks, along with regular in-home coat and ear care. 

Thanks for keeping us in mind!

Hi.  I received your response to my application, and guess I was not clear.  My son and I suffer from pollen allergies, not pet allergies.  I prefer a low-shed or non-shed dog simply because my house stays cleaner.  Sorry if this was misleading.

We had a small briard (we think).  She had all the characteristics of a briard, but was only 46 lbs at her heaviest, and just over knee-high.  She may have been just a marvelous mutt, but briard was the only breed that seemed to fit.

We know there are no perfect pets - as there are no perfect pet owners.  But, we are confident that you couldn't find a more loving or conscientious pair of pet lovers than we are.  We will continue looking closer to home since you prefer not to ship pets.  Thanks so much for your consideration.

Great! Thanks so much for forwarding. I did check my spam earlier today and there was nothing so I just wanted to make sure. I did get a confirmation today when I registered on the site, just not one yesterday when I completed and submitted the application.

Thanks again!

Yes, thanks for all of the links. I have read everything and already completed an application for Sully. I had seen another California pup as well and recommended her to a friend and she said that she had received confirmation emails. I filled out the application for Sully in San Diego but have did not see a confirmation so I was not sure that it went through so that is why I also went in and registered.

Hi, thanks for your email.  Yes I am aware of the potential allergy.  I have been doing research on the various doodle breeds and f1, f2, etc.  We have some breeders in this area that I have contacted.  I really do not want a puppy and part of the reason for that is I want to see the permanent coat.  I have a 4 year old spayed Portuguese Water Dog.  I want a dog that will be compatible with her, she is very submissive but very playful.  She does settle down eventually.  I have almost always had 2 dogs at a time.  
I have started working on your online application.  I am having some trouble with losing the left margin on the web page.  I may have to try a different browser.  I am using google, and your page might display better in Explorer.
I would not ship a dog myself.  I travel by car with my dogs.  So I would probably only be interested in a rescue within a days drive of my house.  The one in GA interests me because of the size, coat, gender, and age.  I am planning a trip with my portie in October and we will be coming back through Georgia so we could stop and meet Linus if he is available at that time.
Thanks for your quick response to my inquiry and I will be completing my application soon.

You sent me an email today which I attempted to respond to but it was a do not reply email I will attempt to copy and paste in this area.  Thanks for your email.

Nancy, Ned and Clancy,

Thank you so much for all of the great information.

Nancy thank you so much for the comments. I would never assume that any dog does not shed unless I actually went to visit them, especially mixed breeds and those listed at shelters. I love the article on how to search for the labradoodle on Petfinder--that has been such a thorn in my side!! I will fill out an application, and had read all of the postings on adoptions prior to signing up for an account so I'm familiar with most of what you had said. Although I hadn't seen any dogs that are listed in NJ I'll still fill out an application. Thanks again for all of the info--I'll pass it on to my husband and step-son!

I have owned family dogs my entire life, this would be my first dog that I would own by myself. I have been helping out my girlfriend with her rescue dog for the past 6 months, which has been going very well. 

I also wanted to note that in my application, I stated that I could leave the door open so the dog could have access outdoors to go potty in my absence. After reading the policies, I realize that this is not acceptable. Given the circumstances of your doodles being "inside dogs", it is not a problem to leave these doors shut. I can always buy pee pads for the dog for when they need to go potty.

Just wanted to thank you for all of your information.  We are still interested in adopting a golden doodle.  I live in NJ.  Do you know of anyone reputable in this area?

Nancy, Ned and Clancy,

Thanks so much for the info. We are interested in the little guy Oliver, but hoping he's not snapped up yet, he's a cutie. We aren't rushing tho, so our time will come. I'm still figuring out how to navigate the site!  I have been reading the policy page and filling out the adoption form all day and looking forward to the next steps! Thank you again for the introductions!

Hey there,

I rec'd a questionable email from someone that had all these links at the bottom of it.  Yet I can't find their comment any where on here.  The stated they wanted to 'talk' privately.  Not going to respond to it.  Any suggestions as to what to do?

Wow , that ended up a apologies for your eye strain after reading it-ha

Thank you for welcoming me today! I currently have an application in for Bach. I've been told that there's been many people that have sent in applications in regard to him and that it would take some time to go through the applications. In the meantime, I went to the adoptable dog list again online so I could take another peek at Bach but his listing is no longer on the site. When that happens , does that mean that he's no longer available for adoption or do you think it's just a computer glitch?
Also, if he still is available, I don't want to keep bothering the person that initially confirmed my application to see where they are in the screening process so you possibly give me more clarification in how this process works?
After applying for a dog where there's a lot of interest & if I'm a good candidate, about how long does it take enforce I'm contacted again? Is the next contact by phone or email? Do they check references before they contact you? I'm asking that because I don't want to trouble my vet office with Release Info forms & things like that if I'm not being considered. If they called to tell me I was a candidate, certainly, I would be driving over to the vets office to talk to them about releasing info to DRC!
I'm really surprised at the amount of applicants for all of the dogs. I think it's probably a lengthier process than what I anticipated! That's great though because the dogs will all have great homes to go to.
Of course we can get attached to a particular dog listed in the site and that happened instantly with Bach.
If you could clarify any of this process to me while I'm in the "waiting anxiously" mode, it would be sooo appreciated!
Again, thanks for welcoming me. What a sweet picture of your doods too . I tried to load a pic of my Walter last night but it wasn't working. Will try again tonight. That boy is such a joy so I want to share his sweet face with you!

Hi Nancy, thank you so much for all the information you shared with me, yes I am aware of everything you said regarding allergies and sheddind issues, but still, I think that this kind of dog is the best for my family. My intention was to rescue a dog in need here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Unfortunatelly, I will have to wait 8 years cause my son is just 2 years old. If by any chance this clause changes let me know, that my home will be open and ready for a doodle. Thank you so much.
