Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
We are looking for a medium sized golden doodle. We currently have a 4 yr old golden doodle and a 12 yr old spaniel who has health issues. We are hoping to adopt a young adult dog to be a companion to both our younger doodle and our dear older spaniel.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Chloé is a spaniel who is 12 yrs old. A dear sweet soul who loves every one.
Byron is 4 yrs old. A large, gentle boy who thinks the entire job of anyone near him is to pet him.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have pretty severe allergies that do much better with a non shedding dog.
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?
Not involved but would consider it later.

So many people think that doodles are universally hypoallergenic that we try  to educate the public.   I am glad that you already knew that they aren't.. Good luck in your search.

Hi Susan, 

You happened to luck out with your doodle. Here is a link to the most allergy friendly breeds: http://www.justdogbreeds.com/low-shedding-dog-breeds.html Notice that doodles are NOT on this list.
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 You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
Welcome 2016
