Hi, I am a 57 year old gramma, mom, wife. Due to employment my husband works in another State and is home every other weekend. That being said means I am home alone for the most part.
We have 10+ grandchildren and 4 children. They come over for visits.
I am a woman who has some health problems that keep me from being able to have a dog that sheds alot. Hence wanting a doodle dog.
We have a huge yard that is completely fenced with a 6' fense around it. Giving a dog a great place to play and roam. All though I want a dog to be indoors with me if possible.
I love animals and have had many dogs and cats thru out my life. I miss the companionship of a dog. I tend to spoil them and they become another "child" of the family.
I hope you will consider me for adoption of one of your dogs. I love girl dogs and would want a girl. I promise that the girl I may get would be very loved and wanted. She would be loved by all. Thank you. Vicki
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
I do not have any pets at this time. My neighbor has both cats and dogs that I love and interact with all the time.
My last dog was a Red Bone Coon Hound and I loved her. We met a man who had just lost both his wife and his long time pet with in a very short time. He knew my dog and would come to visit him all the time. It helped him so much. I asked him if he would like to take him to his home for a bit of time and he did.
This helped him so much. I could not in good conscience take mt dog back....so the decision was made to give Beau...my dog to him. I miss him so badly even though I see him alot. The man is doing well and Beau is happy too. That is why I do not have a pet now.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I have asthma that has become much more intense as I have gotten older. I have researched and found that this is the best fit for me. I know that all of them shed some but as I have spoken with many people, they all think this is the best fit for me.
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.
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, I do not have any children in my home, only when my grandchildren come for a visit with their parents.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I am not involved with it but my niece is and I have watched her and talked with her about it. She works with Pugs. I don't know if I am interested in doing this or not

If allergies/asthma is 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 You MUST have had a dog as an ADULT with VET RECORDS for that dog in YOUR own name.
