My story

Dobbie (not named by us, of course) came to us from an animal shelter where he had been deemed "rescue only" because he failed a temperament test on his dog-to-dog interaction on leash. Unfortunately, that means we are bound by our contract with the shelter to not place him with children or other animals, despite the fact that his ex-owners said he's good with small kids and other dogs. What we're hoping for is a home where his new owner will not have small kids or other animals, but where Dobbie may have visits from the owner's grandchildren or neighbor children. We think it's sad that shelters are making our judgment calls for us on dogs' suitability for certain homes when they really don't know our breed! A majority of our dogs can be reactive to other dogs when on leash. Anyway, Dobbie is strong, so he'll need work on leash, and he's also been only an outside dog, so he'll need to learn house manners also. He's about 5 years old and he's a big boy; about 90 pounds.

Additional adoption info

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. All dogs go home spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, with a collar, and ID tag. Our donations for dogs may vary depending on gender, age, breed and medical needs. Generally our male Dobermans are $250-300 with possible flexibility for seniors. Our female Dobermans are generally a $350 donation, due to the fact that it is more difficult for us to get spay appointments and therefore, we are paying more for those surgeries at other vet clinics. We have to ask more just to make ends meet for now. Little dogs and non-Dobermans are still generally a $200 donation.

More about this rescue

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.
