I have had a golden doodle and a labradoodle in the past. They are both gone now after 14 years. I have a rescued schnoodle that misses her big brother the golden doodle. Our house is empty and needs a couple of doodles in it.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Lab - Abby, passed at 15 due to old age.
Cocker - Elliot, passed at 12 due to old age.
Brody - rescue labradoodle as a pup and passed at 8 from stomach cancer.
MoeJoe - just passed at 11 from throat cancer. He was my golden doodle and the most gentle loving friend. Also a rescue as a 9 month old pup.
Moxie - schnoodle rescue is now 6 and my little 9 lb princess. She misses another pup in the house.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have had three and raised them into their old age. They are the best dogs in the world. They are more people than pup. They tend to be goofballs and fit in with our family perfectly. I have no plans to breed, just take care of them. My children were raised with doodles and now I want my grandkids to have some doodles in their lives.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yep, my other two big doodles shed quite a bit. Kind of funny how you can clean a closet and find dog hair in the back of it.
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?
Only with my schnoodle. She is a rescue that friends of ours found in a dirt road by their home. No one claimed her, and then she claimed us.

Welcome to the DRC website. Love your closet remark; too true!
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. It includes a link to our adoption guidelines. 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.
