my husband and I are empty nesters living in a home we own. last summer our 11 year old beloved choc. lab crossed the rainbow bridge. we are still grieving and not sure if we are ready yet but feel it is time we can start looking for another 4 legged family member to rescue.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
the only thing I didn't thoroughly love about our 100 lb choc. lab was his fur. we have had other dogs (lab mix) that didn't shed like him. my coworker has standard poodles that he brings to the office. I absolutely adore them. I find them similar to the lab without the exeurberance. seems like a fix would fit into our family well.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
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?

I wish you the perfect dog for your family. I always want to make sure that the marketing hype that doodles never shed gets blown to bits. Most of us take what we get when that perfect dog finds us, but for some people not shedding is major. When I purchased my first doodle puppy - he ended up fitting the marketing hype - non-shedding, hypoallergenic. Whew! Then I learned a lot! My first rescue doodle, sheds tons - not as bad as a lab (my daughter has a wonderful lab), but still a lot. My second rescue boy, doesn't shed and I feel very lucky. Here is some more information for you. 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.
Joan, many doodles shed as much as your lab. If not shedding is a priority (and there is nothing wrong with that), you might prefer a poodle, wheaten, schnauzer, etc. If you like that doodle look, many poodles can be groomed without shaving the snout and feet and will look just like a doodle.
