Hubby and I are looking for a doodle to rescue. We love poodle mixes as I am allergic to most dogs who are not poodle mix. We had to cockapoos whom we loved dearly, one raised from puppy, one from rescue. Had to put both down within last 3 years due to old age. Our son is out of the house and our daughter is 20 and lives with us while attending college.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Currently we have no pets. We had to put our last dog down last June. It's too quiet and I really want to take care of a doodle. I love the breed.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
Goldens are sweet and friendly, poodles are sweet and smart. I've raised poodle mixes and have loved them. Friends have had doodles and I have always admired them.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes, I am allergic, BUT can tolerate some higher shedding breeds.
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, we have no children under 10 in our house
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
We are not involved in a rescue, and would be happy to volunteer in your rescue efforts. My hubby is a retired police officer who often helped in rescue efforts of animals.

Hi, If allergies are a concern, you need to be aware that there is truly not a hypoallergenic dog breed, however 'non-shedding' dogs tend to be more allergy friendly. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html
The problem is that as mixed breed dogs, every Goldendoodle or Labradoodle is different, so the fact that one does or doesn't affect allergies doesn't mean that another one will affect in the same way. The protein that causes dog allergies is called KNF1, and it's present in varying amounts in individual dogs. With mixed breeds, even within the same litter, you can have wide variations, and there is no way to know that until the dog has his adult coat. http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/the-truth-about-dog-allergies-and-doodles
Here is an article about determining allergy levels with a particular doodle. http://www.doodletrust.com/education/doodle-alergy-myth No one should make a guarantee that a doodle is or will be hypoallergenic - this is marketing hype. If you are still interested in adopting a doodle (that may or may not be allergy friendly) be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES NOTE: You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
