Health issues of Dobermans



All dog owners should be aware of the type of health issues you could encounter when owning a specific breed and what to expect. The Doberman Pinscher has a lifespan of 10 to 12 years. Wobbler's syndrome, cervical vertebral instability (CVI), and cardiomyopathy are some serious health problems affecting Dobermans; some minor diseases seen in this breed of dog include canine hip dysplasia (CHD), osteosarcoma, von Willebrand's disease (vWD), demodicosis, and gastric torsion. Albinism, narcolepsy, hypothyroidism, and progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) are occasionally seen in Dobermans, while the Blue Doberman is more prone to hair loss or alopecia. Please google these diseases in Dobermans to have a better understanding of the breed!

Toro







URGENT HELP needed! We are seeking donations to help Toro! This 3 year old boy has suffered not one but two torn ACL that both need to be surgically repaired. Toro is in significant pain from this dual injury and DRM has committed to helping Toro walk again without pain, but the journey will be long and costly. We are seeking donations from you, to help us help him get well. Toro had previously suffered a fractured femur in his back leg which was fixed with plates and healed. Because he was unable to use the leg with the torn ACL, he began putting all his weight on the repaired leg with the plates, now the plates have bent and the ACL in this leg has torn, so he needs to get both ACL's surgically repaired or his future ability to walk is in dire jeopardy. All donations are considered tax deductible as DRM is a nonprofit 501C3. Please consider helping us help Toro! Once he is all healed and recovered he will be available for adoption.

Sabar







They should have called me Scooby-dooby-doo! Sabar is a 2 year old docked and cropped male, who was an owner surrendered as there was a baby on the way. Sabar is very large at 95 pounds, with maybe the largest feet we have ever seen on a Doberman. A chicken thief, Sabar has been found guilty of taking chickens from the chicken coop in his previous home and eat them. Sabar does very well with children, small and large female dogs, but would like a forever home with no live chickens to tempt him. He is mellow and loves to be a couch potato, is well behaved, loves squeaky toys, watching the TV, and will bark to alert you of shenanigans on the property. Sabar is very much a Velcro boy and loves his people. Housebroke and crate trained, Sabar is fully vetted, micro chipped, up to date on all vaccines and neutered. Please read the adoption requirements and fill out the adopt application if you qualify to adopt.

Beau







We need your help caring for Beau! Beau is a long term foster boy who has with his loving foster family and DRM for over 4 years. Beau is considered a hard to place Doberman and may never find that one special home. We are dedicated and committed to caring for Beau his entire life but we need your help! Please consider donating to help us buy food or pay for vet care! We will not let him down. Once a Doberman in DRM we are 100% committed. Please consider donating to his care today! Beau is a 7 year old, 110 pound male Doberman. Beau is not your average, typically handsome Doberman. Nope, he is not beautiful, in fact, he may be the ugliest, homeliest Doberman you will ever meet. Beau has a cleft palate which causes him to get food stuck in his mouth, causing him to cough it out on occasion. Beau drools. His bark is different from a Dobermans bark, more like a coon hound bark. He is mellow in the house and will do his business outdoors, but is known to poop inside the house when its convenient for him. He hates his nails trimmed and crys like a baby when its nail trimming time. Beau is not tolerant of people cuddling or bothering him when hes sleeping either, and needs a quite place to do his resting or napping, and he is know to get irritated if disturbed. Beau enjoys going for walks, in fact, he is very enthusiastic about going for walks and is a great walking partner on a leash, but if given the chance to get out of the fenced yard, and he is an opportunist, he is more then happy to take himself on a self guided walk tour without you. He loves to do the 110 pound Doberman lean and be right next to you, thats when hes not sleeping, and only on his terms. Beau is very large and would do well with no small children, its not because he does not like them, but just the opposite. He likes children, a lot, he is known to hump them and given his size, this could harm a small child. He has zero space boundaries with humans if hes in a hurry, imagine a 110 pound dog taking you out at the knees. Yes, Beau is a very, very, very special boy and might possibly never ever find a forever home. Football fans take note, Beau loves to play football with the old pigskin. Beau will make a great companion, well maybe or maybe not, to the right person who can tolerate his flaws. Beau has been with DRM since 2010 and because hes so different has gotten over looked for many of the much more handsome boys that have come through rescue. DRM and his foster family have tolerated and embraced the unwanted Beau through good and bad. If you are looking for a homely doberman, that is very different then all the rest, has some weird habits, this is your boy.

Breed Info



The Doberman is not a breed for everyone! Please educate yourself before buying or adopting a Doberman. Highly intelligent with tons of energy, this breed needs humans willing to commit to lifelong training and socializing to have a well balanced adult dog. Please read up on the diseases this breed is known for, Cardiomyopathy, Von Willabrandts Disease, Wobblers and thyroid disease to name a few. The Doberman is a social creature that needs and thrives on canine and human companionship. If you do not like a dog that will follow you to the ends of the earth and back, or just to the bathroom, then this breed is not for you. They can be demanding, whiny and high maintenance. They are loving, super smart and will be your loyal friend for their entire lives.

Mason







Can't catch a break! Mason is a two year old neutered male Doberman who was adopted from DRM a year ago, but returned due to adopters moving and not wanting to take Mason with. Mason again has experienced yet another home that has failed him immensely. Mason is doing very well in his current foster home with other dogs and children. He would not do well with cats or small furry creatures. Mason crates up nicely, and is house broke. While he is doing well in his foster home, Mason will need a home that has experience with this breed, one that can be Masons leader and one that is willing to care for Mason the way a dog should be cared for, including obedience training, yearly vet checks, including making sure vaccinations are up to date and on monthly heart worm and flea preventative, per the adoption contract with DRM, which was neglected and he did not get in his previous adopters home to our dismay and which was in violation of the DRM adoption contract. Mason is a great dog but it is clear he has suffered some set backs in this past home, and will need help working on simple things such as walking on a leash with confidence, and focusing on his interaction with humans when it is expected of him. Please read our adoption policy and if you qualify please fill out the adoption application.
