My story

Adoption fee: $375



Physical appearance: Drake is a 15-month-old male Doberman with natural ears and a docked tail.  He's average size for a male weighing in at 85lbs.



Personality: Drake is a sweet dog, but he needs consistent boundaries and structure.  He loves people and can do well with other dogs when slowly and properly introduced as he can get a bit excited initially.  Absolutely no other male dogs as he will not back down from a challenge.  He has shown resource guarding of furniture and absolutely cannot be allowed on any furniture unless that right is earned.  While he is a sweet dog, he is not a couch-cuddling dog and you cannot hug him or get in his face.  While all Dobermans need a leader, this is extra true for Drake.



Why he’s in rescue: Drake was originally in rescue after he was found in a landfill.  After no one came to claim him at animal control, he came to rescue.  Drake was originally adopted by a couple but was returned after his resource guarding was more than they could handle.



Manners and training: We will not adopt Drake to a home that has not had experience with training a Doberman or other working breed before. Due to his resource guarding, he will also not be adopted to a home with kids because he absolutely will bite if he given too much freedom and allowed on furniture.  Drake has had some professional training and knows some commands.  He is also potty and crate trained and does well on a leash. Drake's perfect home is one that knows the breed and prefers the sharp personality of a Doberman that needs a job.  If you can be the leader Drake needs, he will follow you until the ends of the earth.



Vetting: All our dogs are brought up to date on rabies, Bordetella, and combo, negative for intestinal parasites and heartworms, neutered and microchipped before adoption.

Additional adoption info

We thoroughly review potential new families with a multi-layered process. We make sure that the new families can properly take care of a Doberman and should anything happen, that the Doberman comes back to us. A Doberman that comes into GDR has us behind them for life, as does their adoptive family. Our adoption process includes: 1. Initial Application and review 2. Vet and personal reference check 3. Home visit 4. Board and foster review

Go meet their pets

All of our pets are kept in foster comes across Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. If you would like to meet one of our pets, we require an adoption application be submitted and a home check be completed so we can be respectful of our fosters time.

More about this rescue

Georgia Doberman Rescue is a non profit, volunteer organization, dedicated to rescuing and re-homing abandoned or homeless Doberman Pinschers from shelters or owners who have surrendered them. By working with volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians and trainers, we are able to place these dogs in loving temporary homes for assessment and rehabilitation, and then into carefully screened forever homes. We are an educational resource for the Doberman owner, and provide information on responsible pet ownership, good nutrition, positive behavioral training and the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
