Meet Louie - one of DRC's newest foster doodles

Mr. Louie is a ten month old doodle puppy who has unfortunately had two homes already in his short life.  He is a typical doodle puppy - needing lots of attention and room to run!  He shared his last home with five other dogs and no fenced yard for him to play in and the poor guy just wanted room to play.


Since he arrived at his foster home he has had lots of room to run with his foster brothers.  He had a look of pure joy when he first got off leash and could run around all…

Meet Oscar, 3 year old Aussie Doodle in SoCal

Oscar has just come into a foster home in LA, rescued from a shelter as a "lost" dog found wandering the streets.

Despite this rough luck his foster mom reports that he is very friendly with a sweet nature, fully housebroken, knows a few basic command but will need leash training.

Oscar is 36 lbs. and neutered and really looks like a love bug!

With a fresh haircut:…

I just received a very welcome email from Ken Haworth saying, "I hope you remember Coco, I love this dog!"  It had a short video attached which I don't know how to attach.  We had fostered Coco until that wonderful doodle was adopted by the Haworths...

Max available in St. Pete, FL!

Meet Max! An adorable 11 month old vizsla-poodle mix that was surrendered to the local animal services because his family did not have the time for him. Personally, I think Max was an outdoor dog. He craves being close to his family but at the same time isn't overly clingy. He already learned sit and is getting better good with "down". He is crate trained 100% now and will go in there during the day when I am home to sleep! Max is learning potty manners however he has had only two accidents…

Waiting for Sully's furever mom...

Olga, Sully's furever mom is driving from Tucson, AZ to our home in Escondido, CA, today to pick up Sully.  She is bringing Sully's, to-be, doodle sister, Chloe, to meet Sully.

We are excited about Sully finding a furever home but, it is a bittersweet feeling because we have grown to love his wonderful doodle who has lived with us for the past couple of months.

Met Shiloh! A gorgeous I believe probably F1B chocolate labradoodle that is just  simply to die for. Shiloh and his friend Hannah were pulled from the local animal services in Orlando, Florida where they were brought in as strays. After his stray hold was up DRC pulled them and they got the full treatment -- a haircut he desperately needed, neutered and a trip to the vet to check him out. Turns out Shiloh is heartworm positive but the vet recommended the slow kill method since he's not a…

Through the combined efforts of Doodle Rescue Collective, Inc. folks, we have saved another doodle from euthanasia.  Bentley, a beautiful (photos coming soon) dark Labradoodle was pulled from the Agoura, California shelter where he was scheduled for euthanasia.

He is being driven South by DRC, Inc. volunteers and I will pick him up today somewhere north of my home (at a point yet to be determined) and bring him to stay with us until he can find a furever home for him.

Meet Bella available in St. Pete, Florida!

Met Bella! An adorable 11 month old most likely F1 goldendoodle that is sure to steal your heart! She is currently 46 lb and a light shedder. Bella was rehomed because her family traveled too much. She is truly an amazing dog. She knows sit, down and will give you paw (both paws actually, I can say this paw and point to right one and she gives me that one). She is crate trained but honestly I don't think she needs it (she loves her crate though and will sleep in it throughout the night with…

First 4th of July with Ruby

So yesterday was our first 4th of July with Ruby.  Since she was a re-home we got in November (typical kids, no time, blah blah blah) we had no idea how she would be, I mean she was okay with thunder storms but one never wants to assume all other big scary noises will be okay.  Well she did absolutely great!!!  First clue was we went to the beach to watch the fireworks and I put her in her kennel and gave her a special treat and a special toy.  Our 78 year old aunt lives with us and when we…

Handsome Boy!

Sully (Sullivan) is a wonderful seven and a half year old Goldendoodle whose owners did not want him.  They tried to turn him into the San Diego Animal Control Shelter but they were told that the shelter was full and would only accept aggressive dogs for euthanization.  The (expletives deleted) owners said, "O.K. he's aggressive, kill him!"

Meet Buddy! Available 1 YO Australian Labradoodle - N. CA, Lake Tahoe, Reno NV area

Buddy is a 1 YO M/n Australian Labradoodle that we took into our home last week for fostering & training. Buddy and his sister Scout were left in a backyard for a year, he had no contact outside his immediate family and no obedience training whatsoever.

Despite a rough start he is a friendly and very intelligent little guy with stunning green eyes! He is very shy with strangers but not unfriendly or aggressive. Even though he never lived indoors he is housebroken due to…

Sad update

Just here to update our DRC application/profile to share the sad news that we just lost our beloved 9-year-old Goldendoodle, Buster.  He recently experienced two very serious bouts of thrombocytopenia (internal bleeding) that was ultimately traced to a cancerous tumor. There were no good courses of action to take, and thus we had to make the difficult decision to put him down. We are so saddened by his sudden departure. But that has only firmed our resolve to rescue another doodle to give…
