I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Vi came to us from an upstate animal shelter where she had been available for months. She had lost a lot of weight and was stressed. She was, actually, emaciated. Upon her arrival, we put Vi in a less stressful area and fed her two or three times a day, and she now looks great. One day she opened her gate and let herself out of her kennel, and there was no dissent between her and the other free-roaming dogs here, so the shelter's assessment of possible dog-aggression was probably without merit except perhaps protectiveness of her food. Vi may have been starved at some point in her life, so she takes food very seriously and might need to be watched in the home environment for the potential to be a "counter surfer." Her behavior toward kids isn't known. To see more of our adoptable dogs please refer to our website at www.DobiesandLittlePawsRescue.org
We are a non-profit, no-kill rescue/sanctuary specializing in dobermans but also rescuing small dogs. Most of our dogs come from animal shelters before they are euthanized and are given a second chance at a new home.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are located on a small ranch nestled in the orchards of Fillmore, ca. We are open every saturday from 11:00am-3:00pm for open house adoptions. We can arrange weekday or sunday visits by appointment as well.
Our Adoption Process...
We ask that you bring the whole family (including the four legged) so we can best match you with the right dog. Once you have found your new companion we will have you fill out a one page adoption agreement. We ask a donation of $200-$250 for a doberman and $150 for a little dog. All dogs go home spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, with a collar, ID tag, and de-wormer.
