My name is Chance, I am a blue Doberman, about 2-3 years old, neutered male and I am looking for a new forever family. I was not in such a very good situation but all that has changed now that I am with Doberman Rescue Minnesota. I have the most wonderful foster family caring for me till I find my forever home. I love playing tag with my foster fur-sister, and my foster Mom says that I am giving my foster fur-sister a run for her money. I am so happy I have space to run because I like to run and run and run and run then take a break under the shade tree. One of my eyes is blind, but that does not stop me or even slightly slow me down. When my foster Mom calls me to go into the house I am such a good listener and happily follower her inside. I like to dig in the toy box for something fun to play with and chew on bones. My favorite thing is the bone that is filled with peanut butter, yum! My foster mom says I am a good eater and gobble my food right up but I am told that stealing pizza off the table is not a good idea, but it sure was yummy. I am learning to sleep in a crate at night but would prefer to sleep on a bed with my people. The couch is a comfy spot too! I would love a home where I could have a fur sibling to play with. If you adopt me I promise that I will snuggle with you, be your best pal and love you forever! I lived with dog saavy cats, dogs and children in my previous home, and would do well in most homes with the proper introduction to these new friends! Please read the adoption policy and if you qualify to adopt, fill out the application to adopt me!

Adoption pending! ---->My name is Dax. I am a handsome red, 1 1/2 year old, neutered doberman who loves to stay busy, so you've got to be busy like me! Just think of all the fun we could have. I am searching for my forever home. I am very, very smart and active, and active pups like me require active owners, obedience training, energy release and more and more training, which my owner could not give me because she worked and went to school all day and night. I spent a lot of my youth home alone in a crate, with no one to be with me. I get along well with other dogs and children. I am dreaming of having a forever family that would love to stay active, take me to the dog park and is willing to teach me all kinds of wonderful things that I need to know to be great companion. I'm young, moldable and willing to do whatever you tell me, and if there are treats involved, even better. I would make an excellent running or biking partner, if you're into that, or we could just go for a nice leisurely walk and maybe play some ball! I would be happy either way as long as I can spend my time doing something with you. I am fully vetted, heart worm negative, microchipped, neutered and up to date on all my shots. Please read the DRM adoption policy before filling out the application to adopt from DRM to see if you qualify to adopt.

Big Red

Clifford the big red Doberman is what they are calling me. I came from Louisiana and I am not sure how many years old I am. Lets just make my age as a distinguished, mature, adult Doberman. I really loving being in Minnesota and am super excited about getting another chance at starting a new life, getting healthy and finding my forever family. All those who are helping me, tell me I am a really good boy. Sadly, I was infected with the heartworm parasite while I lived in Louisiana. Now that I am in Minnesota, the doctors are working on getting it out of my body, once gone, I can be adopted! My foster home has a super soft comfy dog bed that I just love to snuggle up in, I have never known such comfort, this is completely different from the cold floor of the shelter. I really love to snuggle be it with people or just my little bed. Life is finally good. My foster mom says I am a really good walker on the leash. Once I start my heart worm treatment I will have to take a break from walking with her. Thank you rescue angels for getting me to this place called Minnesota. If you are interested in sponsoring Clifford the Big Red Doberman with his heartworm treatment please go to the Paypal button on our web. Clifford is neutered, microchipped and will be fully vetted when adopted. If you are interested in adopting Clifford, he will be able to move into his forever home in around October when his heart worm treatment has been completed. Please read the adoption requirements and fill out the application if you qualify.

I am Jack Jack, or you can call me Jack for short. I am a big Doberman boy, all of 3 years old, neutered, microchipped, 90 pounds and fully vetted. I am a big, soft teddy bear that looks like a Doberman, but do not tell anyone. One of my best friends, who I really am going to miss a lot, was a silly, soft, furry bengal cat, we use to love to wrestle, play and even cuddle when we were done playing. My owner had to surrender me as she was moving into an apartment due to her failing health. She loved me lots and I so loved her, our goodbye was bittersweet, but I know this is for the best for both of us. I am good with other dogs as I have gone to doggy daycare a couple days a week my whole life and I lived with two small female dogs. I am very passive, and so not an alpha dog, I would really like to have another dog in my new home, or even a cat! I love to wrestle with other dogs and love to play, play, play! Yep, I am a lover not a fighter. I do well with older children, I love to play ball and I love to wade in the water, love to go for walks and love to chase chipmunks! I am ready to find my forever home and if you have a cat, even better because I so love cats. I will for sure love a home with another lady dog! And if you have a bossy lady dog, thats OK, I would prefer not to be in charge of anything! I am super smart and ready to make you happy! Please read the adoption policy and if you qualify fill out the application to adopt me. Love, Jack

Cat lovers please apply!!! I am Fredo and I am 6 1/2 years old. I am looking for a home with experienced Dober-folks only! I play well with cats and would love to have a cat for a companion, the more the merrier, I love cats, love to play with them, hmmm, maybe I am part cat?! I don't care for dogs and would prefer to be the only dog in my new furever home. I have not been raised around children either and do not want any human youngsters in my new forever home-they move to fast and jerky-that is very scary for me! As most Dobermans, I am by nature, very protective of my space so I will require a fenced yard. I would do best in a home that can continue to work with me on my obedience skills and help me to cope with my fear of new things. I am a work in progress and need my new home to be willing to continue all the good work my foster family has done with me! I am a dober-boy who likes consistency, day in and day out, with my people. I am crate trained, housebroke and fully vetted. Please read the adoption requirements and if qualify, fill out the application!

Willow is a super sweet girl who loves everyone and everything. We suspect she is well over 10 years old. She was found as a stray wandering down a country road in the dead of winter so not much is known about her past. She will need a very special home that understands the needs of a senior Doberman. Willow wears a little jacket year round to keep her warm, weighs all of 45 pounds soaking wet, is a very petite dober-girl who is a very picky eater, which is very typical for some senior dogs. Through trial and error we have found a dog food she really likes! She loves cuddling with her foster family, loves playing ball with the children and just loves, loves, loves life and is very happy! We think Willow is a such a honey and we are 100% committed to making her senior days the happiest they can be! She is available for adoption and would like a person who is home most of the time and is looking for companionship. Willow would like to go for short walks and have someone to play ball with. Willow does take daily thyroid medication. She is up to date on all her vaccines, heart worm negative, spayed, microchipped and one of the happiest girls you will ever meet! Please read our adoption policy and if you qualify please fill out the application to adopt!

Supporters Needed for Sophie

Adoption Pending!-Its almost time to find my wings! I am on the mend and looking for my forever home! Meet Sophie! Sophie is a 10 month old blue super sweet, dober-girl with a broken rear leg. She is having surgery on 06/09/2014, TODAY, that will cost DRM close to 2 thousand dollars! Please consider supporting and/or sponsoring this pup. Her owners were going to euthanize her because of the break but DRM has stepped up to make sure this girl lives a long life. Please help us help her and donate to help offset her very expensive surgery. All donations are tax deductible for you, as we are a non-profit 501C3. Click on the paypal button on the front page of our web, or you can mail your donations right to our mailing address, but please specify "To help save Sophie and her broken leg!" We will send a receipt for your taxes! Thanks for helping us help Sophie and once healed, she will be available for adoption. Sophie is a lover and loves everyone, everything, cats, dogs and kids alike! This girl is so deserving of all our help! Together we can do something bigger and better than ourselves and right now Sophie needs YOU! Thank you to all my supporters! Thanks to all of you, I had my surgery on 06/09/2014 and although I am sore, my foster mom says I am healing real nice. My broken leg is on the mend. I am getting a little antsy because I can't run and play like a puppy would really like to do. If you have any suggestions to keep a busy puppy, busy but quiet, please let me know! I am SO bored, I want to go-go-go, but I can't! After some quiet playtime with my foster mom, I am satisfied and able to nap, as long as its in my foster moms lap! I do love my crate to nap in though. My foster mom didn't latch the kennel correctly one morning for nap time, hehe, so when she came back downstairs I was outside my kennel watching her! She thought I was a magician! I have been leaving my stitches alone but I still have to wear that darn doggy cone! I can't wait till the day that goes away. My foster mom knows I have a big heart, and shes Ok with my big, long kisses, and rambunctiously wiggles I give her. I am very observant, following peoples movements and tracking what is going on when I am awake. I have a big bark and am a very confident dober-puppy. I do love my four legged foster brothers and sisters and would do well with other animals! Once I am all healed I will be searching for just the right owner to call my own! Sophie here, I am sitting in my foster moms lap on July 4, because there are some loud sounds around. For the most part I am not too bothered by sounds- I do bark at the vacuum cleaner, but I don't leave the room. I am really feeling so much better these past few days, almost no limp at all! I even skip steps going up the stairs when I come inside!! But my foster mom makes me still only walk on leash outside. I look forward to the day I get to run again! It has been a month since I got here, and I am so ready!! She tells me mid July we get an update from the vet. Thank you for all of the stuffed kongs and elk antlers and stuffless, squeaky toys over the past month. I have been here for month and would have driven momma nuts if not for all the goodies I have to keep me busy!! Especially now that I am feeling better, and am full of lots of energy. When I do get to burn off some steam, I settle right down (in a lap preferably) and enjoy all of my toys. I love my foster mom and dad (see picture)! I love watching my people and greeting then whenever they enter the room! Big kisses and hugs for everyone, and If I can nudge someone to play with me or just sit with me, all the better! I do tear up my toys, leaving all the goodies on the floor for mom to pick up. And sometimes I will not give up a toy, when I really don't want to share. But this is not often. I am a climber, once my leg is healed I might want to try agility! I am very agile, really smart, and really want to please my owner. I was fortunate enough to have some intensive training a few months ago, so I know my basic commands, and when I find my forever home I want to keep using them and learn more! I am getting lots of practice at healing and following my momma's lead, because all of my outside activity is only on leash right now. I do love dog parks and can't wait to go visit and play with other dogs again. I know I can make you look really good!!
