WE ARE A MATURE COUPLE WITH OUR OWN HOME AND FENCED IN YARD. WE HAVE GROWN CHILDREN, GROWN GRANDCHILDREN AND TWO GREAT GRANDDAUGHTERS AGES 5 AND 6 YEARS OLD. WE WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO HAVE A DOG BACK IN OUR LIVES ONCE AGAIN. AND, WE WOULD LIKE TO RESCUE A DOG.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
WE HAVE HAD A WHEATEN TERRIER, SEAMUS, FOR 12+ YEARS. HE WAS A GREAT BOY AND WHEN HE TORE HIS ACL AT THAT AGE, HE HAD TO BE PUT DOWN. IT WAS A VERY SAD TIME IN OUR LIVES. 2 YEARS LATER, WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN DOODLE. BORN WITH MEGAESOPHAGUS. WE HAD A CHAIR MADE FOR HIM AS HE HAD TO EAT STANDING UP. HE HAD TO BE PUT DOWN AT 6 1/2 MONTHS OF AGE...REPEATED PNEUMONIAS. BROKE OUR HEARTS.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
WE HAVE HAD NON SHEDDING DOGS AND LOVE THIS ADVANTAGE. OUR WHEATEN AND OUR DOODLE WERE SPECIAL IN OUR LIVES. WE ARE READY AND WANT TO RESCUE A MEDIUM DOODLE, IF POSSIBLE! THE TWO BREEDS WE HAVE HAD ADDED SO MUCH TO OUR LIVES! THE SORROW IN LOSING THEM WAS SO HARD. TIME HAS GIVEN US THE OPPORTUNITY TO REALIZE HOW MUCH WE MISS THE WOOFS AND KISSES AND LOVE THAT COMES INTO YOUR HOME AND HEART WHEN YOU HAVE A DOG! AFTER TWO YEARS OF NOT HAVING A PET, WE ARE READY TO ADOPT!
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
LIGHT SHEDDING IS NOT AN ISSUE.
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? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
WE WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT.

Welcome to the DRC website.Just so you are aware, many doodles shed a lot. 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: firstname.lastname@example.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.
