Orso has had a number of homes in his 5 years of life. On the positive side, he's housebroken, ok with female dogs, not destructive, and knows commands. Plus he's a very handsome dog! On the negative side, he is a barker who will persist in barking to get his own way, such as demanding to be in the house all the time. He definitely needs an "alpha" owner that he'll respect so that he'll do his/her bidding whether he chooses to or not. We think Orso has been allowed to slide quite a bit with owners that didn't demand obedience from him, and he's let it become a way of life. His new owner should be able to set ground rules from the first day. We are considering only adult homes for this dog.
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.
