Gabe is my name, at least that’s the name that the volunteers gave me. I once was called by a different name(since I don’t speak English I can’t tell you what it was) and had a home and a family and then one day they just tossed me out like a piece of trash and I was left to wander and get eaten by flies, fleas and ticks. One day I got picked up and taken to a shelter. No one claimed me so the kind folks at the shelter contacted rescues, volunteers came to help and after a journey, here I am! I have a new name and a new lease on life.
I am 5-6 years old and I am a BIG boy. I am very tall and built. If I had to shop for clothes I’d have to go the big and tall store for my breed. I am going to take off a few pounds but I don’t need to lose much.
I am a very nice boy. I get along with other dogs. Cats unknown. I try to just go with the flow. I’ve kind of had to learn that lately. I just try to stay calm and move forward and don’t hold grudges. I figure things happen for a reason, live in the present and don’t dwell on the past. My favorite thing is to snuggle and get attention from my humans. I do love a nice sofa!
You will notice my front legs are bandaged. I got eaten by fleas and flies while I was loose and when I got to the shelter I began to lick on my front legs. What can I say? We Dobermans sometimes do that to pacify ourselves, much like humans might suck their thumbs. Anyway, I am getting better in every way.
UPDATE ON GABE: This boy is just a big sweetheart! His legs are healing up and we all fell in love with his low key personality. He just wants to be loved on and give love and he just goes with the flow and doesn't get hyped up about too much. We are working to get him some regular exercise so he can get some weight off. He is AWESOME on leash - no pulling at all. Did just fine with all of the other dogs during our showing yesterday. He is kind of like Eeyore on stilts without the brooding outlook on life because he is a happy guy, just low key!
More information will be posted as it is known. For now please ask for me at www.doberescue-ne.org . Thanks!
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.
