Distinguished middle-aged gentleman seeks forever home. I am 107 pounds of solid muscle – eat your hearts out. I have a full body of dark blue soft hair and a heart that loves attention. My role in life is snuggler and lover. I’d be perfectly happy in a home with people who want to cuddle and pet me and if I had a female dog companion that would be great. Now my female companion can’t be nagging me. I won’t have a nagging girl. I want a canine companion, not someone who wants me running around and playing rough all day and no honey do lists, please. That just isn’t my style. I will play but easy does it, and frankly, with my size I have the power to knock down walls with my brute strength, so when it comes to playing with other dogs a female who is more laid back and not a puppy would be a fine thing.
Let me tell you how my foster mom got me so healthy. She feeds me Blue Buffalo and adds in green beans along with fish oil and Platinum Performance. All of these things make my coat healthy and keep my joints healthy and give me my svelte figure too.(Just check out my profile.) Now, mind you , when I want my dinner I get very excited and my foster mom never moves fast enough for me so I urge her own with my own little pep rally. I’d snap my fingers but I don’t have an opposable thumb so she gets my demand for service. I asked her for a dinner bell to ring but she declined. Dinner is very important to me.
I am on thyroid medication and it is relatively inexpensive to maintain but it sure does keep me healthy.
I walk nicely on lead but being the big love muffin that I am I can be a powerhouse if I want to be.
My idea of the best home is as follows:
- No kids under 12 – all of the noise and fuss of younger ones would really cramp my style.
- No cats, no puppies – again these would irritate me – too many demands and too much noise for my liking.
Manners are very important to me!
- Must keep me on my supplements and thyroid meds.
- Must appreciate it that I am a big boy with an opinion – I have obtained wisdom in life and don’t mind sharing.
- A canine female companion who wants a handsome man who will pay her some attention but isn’t too needy
- Must give me plenty of attention except when I am sleeping then I just want to have peace and quiet.
- I like to chew on bones so those would be nice.

All of our dogs are current with all shots, are on heart worm preventative monthly and are neutered/spayed. All dogs are tail docked. All of the above Dobes are pure breed Dobermans unless otherwise noted.
We hope you can find a place in your heart and your home for one of our rescue Dobes.
In most cases we require a fenced yard.
We do not place our rescue dogs in homes with very young children (under the age of 8 years). We set these limitations, not because of aggression issues with our dogs, but because Dobermans are generally large, active dogs and can easily knock down, run over or easily trip a small child, causing a serious fall. Also, we reserve the right to refuse adoption for any reason.
Our adoption area encompasses Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.
