"I figured that. Zeke was totally afraid of the crate. You could throw roast beef in there and he wouldn't go in to get it. He used to be afraid of the bathroom, too, but he's over that except for guarding me when I am in the tub. Zeke will…"
Just so you know, I too asked to have a Doodle rescue flown to me. I didn't get it until I got Zeke. He couldn't handle being in our hallway when all the bedroom/bathroom doors were closed. He would cry like an abandoned child even…"
" It sounds like a breeder is the way to go for you and there is nothing wrong with that. Rescue dogs can be a lot more work than a breeder puppy. A new loving home is essential, but you also have to build trust with a very smart…"
"Well, Washingtonians don't often give up their Doods, so it can be difficult to rescue one if you live in this state. When I got Zeke (My DRC Dood), I checked half a dozen rescue sites every day for months. I had almost given up and was on a…"
I am in Seattle and I have a DRC doodle. He was in Salem Oregon. If your heart is not totally set on a male, there is a beautiful girl Doodle in Portland:

It was wonderful talking to you today. I really would like to meet up and let Annie and Farley play regardless of what happens with Zeke. He was on the webcam a couple of minutes ago.....all by himself just standing there looking cute as can be.
Be sure to specifiy Zeke in your application. I don't think 3.5 hours is too much either. We drove 5 hours to get one of our doods! I don't know how many people have applied for him so far because that isn't my area. Good Luck!
Hi! Before applying to adopt, be sure to read the link to DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES (application at top of page) Or you can go to Zeke's picture on the front page, scroll down to the place where it has the application. Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section. When you are looking at the pictures, notice that 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 you need to be within driving distance of the foster. Here are some other ideas for finding a rescue doodle:
Click on the REGIONAL LISTINGS section for doodles with other organizations; PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within driving distance); GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to water lily pond pictures
