Facts about Sasha & Sanjay

  • Breed: Doberman Pinscher
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Sasha and Sanjay, although they would not win any conformation contests, have beautiful natures and are the sweetest pair of Dobermans I have met. :-) They are quiet, gentle, sensitive, well-behaved and have begun to enjoy going for walks. As you can tell by
the size of them, they were not only left alone with little exercise for most of their lives, but also little interaction
besides each other. In spite of that they are good with other dogs and people.

Sanjay is more playful and active than Sasha, who would prefer to cuddle
at your feet. Sasha loves gentle affection from people but is still coming out of her "shell"; both dogs were
"shut down" and introverted when they arrived.

When I first started fostering them, Sasha's feet would bleed because she was not used to walking. She now walks nicely
on the leash, no pulling at all. They have both lost some weight since these pictures
were taken at the beginning of April but need to lose more. Sanjay is getting into "power walks" with the dog walker so
is no longer reluctant to go out. He could use a harness as he is
used to being walked quickly and is a strong 130 lb. dog, but he is not "puller".

Sanjay is attached to Sasha so sometimes he is slightly anxious when she is away from him. He is not destructive,
he whimpers at the bottom of the stairs. Although he will come up the outside
stairs, he is reluctant to walk up our indoor stairs for some reason. They both sleep together in a large crate at night.
They are house trained and have reasonably good recall. Both are very food motivated, so will have to be taught to be calm
before feeding. (Like humans) food compulsion is sometimes common with dogs who have been
deprived of love and attention, although I can remove a bone from them with no problem.

If you are eager to adopt a rescued dog, owning two dogs instead of one is often much easier.
This bonded pair should not give anyone any trouble. Sasha and Sanjay are looking
for a wonderful family home who can give them the affection and security they have missed.
Sanjay is 6 and Sasha is 7 years old and have had all their vaccinations.

About Dogwood Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a network of volunteers who are passionate about animal welfare and have been quietly rehoming dogs for over 40 years. Our mission is to rehome homeless, unwanted or abused animals after ensuring that they are neutered/spayed and evaluated. We specialize in sporting dog breeds such as Pointers, Retrievers, Vizslas, Weimaraners and Dobermans, but will find a loving home for any breed of dog in need, particularly seniors.
We rely on public donations to continue our work, with our largest expense being veterinary services. Each dog that arrives with us receives a physical exam and spaying or neutering, if required. Many of the dogs we rescue, come to us malnourished or unhealthy because they have been neglected. We help dogs who are abandoned, relinquished, or available due to:

- Cruelty;
- Age or health;
- Neglect;
- Hardship;
- Divorce;
- Moving (where pets are not permitted or cannot make the journey);
- Lifestyle changes (starting a family);
- Death (or illness) of the owner;
- Imminent euthanasia in over-crowded shelters;
- Unwanted pets (e.g. puppies from unplanned litters) released into rural areas.
If you would like to contribute to animal welfare in your community we are always interested in hearing from you! We appreciate any volunteer help for fostering, advertising, fund-raising, transport, etc. If you cannot help out in person, but would still like to contribute to the welfare of these animals that find themselves in dire need, we welcome your assistance through the donation of funds or by sponsoring a particular dog's medical needs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not keep our rescued dogs in a shelter. Our dogs are placed in caring volunteer foster homes (with foster-to-adopt as an option).
