Sampson









Sampson is a 6 year old Dober-gent, that came to us because his family could not afford his medical care, so they surrendered him to a local shelter who contacted DRM to help him. Sampson was diagnosed with Wobblers and had surgery at the University of Minnesota in January of 2015 to repair the cervical spine that was causing him problems. The surgery was a success! He does have some permanent nerve damage that may never repair itself, but he continues to improve daily. Sampson is a dream Doberman and almost perfect in every way with the exception of his residual affects from having experienced Wobblers. Sampson is a distant grandson of Ch.Cambria's Cactus Cash of Sampson and has many champions in his pedigree. His temperament is stellar. He is a truly gentle and loving boy and loves everyone he meets; adults, children and animals. However squirrels cause much excitement and taunt him mercilessly! Typical of the doberman breed, he can be quite silly and a very snuggly boy, loving nothing more than a romp in the yard or a walk and being with you. He enjoys playing with other dogs and would do well in a yard where it is safe for him to play off-leash with a pup-friend. Gentle with children of all sizes, Sampson is an all around family dog! Sir Sampson continues to recover well from surgery and grows stronger all the time, however he will still drag his back toenails just a bit when he becomes tired, again from the neurological trauma he experienced from the cervical spine being compromised prior to surgery. Now at a comfortable weight, 65 lbs, he becomes more adventurous on his walk. He has been walking with a retractable leash to encourage an independent gait, continuing to stretch those legs and adapting to the various terrain he encounters. Sampson is even able to gallop now! Sampson tackles stairs up to four steps independently, but will need assistance with anything more Going up stairs is easier than going down them and a firm hand on his harness as he attempts them is needed to prevent falls. He does still stumble on occasions so it is quite important he not attempt flights of stairs on his own. Sampson's stools are normal but unbeknownst to him, he does have accidents a couple times a week due to his neurological trauma and deficit prior to surgery. We have hopes that this will go away as the nerves continue to repair themselves or it may not, but he does drop a poo every now and then. He is extremely embarrassed when it happens so his new family will need to be understanding. He does best with a regular feeding and exercise schedule to keep him on track. Coupled with attentive parents and plenty of outdoor playtime his bowels are very manageable. Sampson is a loving boy in need of a loving family and truly one of the most wonderful Dobermans and fine representative of the Doberman Breed. Sampson is recovering nicely from his surgery to repair his Wobblers disease, is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm preventative. Please read our entire adoption policy and if you qualify fill out the application to adopt Sampson.

Buddy









My name is Buddy and I am 1 years old. I am black and tan, docked and cropped neutered boy. I love snuggling and getting affection from humans. I am a little uncertain and shy of some men but love all women. I am a good car rider and walk very good on a leash with a gentle leader. I have very good recall! I am crate trained, micro-chipped and up to date on all my vet care. I have a low prey drive, I'm not reactive to chicken and only slightly curious about the cats. I was an owner surrender and my previous owner was not able to give me the kind of attention a young dog needs. I have a very happy attitude, love playing with other dogs and would love to have a canine companion in my new home. My foster mom says I am a goofy boy in a big dogs body, with a ton of puppy personality. I am not a big Doberman and may be on the small size when I am fully grown. I try hard to please those who are caring for me and would love to begin obedience classes with my forever someone. I have learned all about the lake and LOVE to swim. A home on the water would be super cool. Check out my first time swimming video. Like I said, my foster mom wanted me to try it, so I did to please her and man was it FUN. I am excited to find my forever home and have someone to call my own. Please read the DRM adoption policy and if you qualify to adopt, fill out the application to adopt me!

Zena



Zena will be attending Dobe O Rama on September 26th for all to meet, with her wonderful foster mom. Please plan on stopping by to say hi to Zena so she can thank you for all the generous help and kind words. If you would like to donate to her care consider bringing it to Dobe O Rama. Zena is a 13 year old Dobergirl who was suddenly removed from her home due to no fault of her own. Alone in her senior years and unsure of the time left here on earth, DRM is committed to making sure she is cared for in a loving foster home by a wonderful Rescue Angel until her time comes. She is very sweet, able to get around, go outside and eat her food, but very fragile and delicate, underweight, and full of arthritis and lipomas. She has been placed in a hospice foster home that is calm and quiet. Zena will require soft food and other items suited to keep her comfortable and pain free for senior dogs, such as a soft bed, sweater or jacket, blanket, glucosamine supplements and soft treats. If you would like to help us help Zena, we are seeking donations to help care for her in her golden years such as those listed, even used items will do, or monetary donations and we will buy her what she needs. DRM is a non-profit 501C3 rescue and all donations to Zena or any of our Dobermans is tax deductible. DRM will send you a tax receipt for your generous donation.

Hanns

Hanns is a bit timid at first and wary of men, but warms up quickly. He loves to go for walks, smelling all the wonderful things in the woods and loves to play with his foster fur sister. He would do well with another female canine to help mentor his confidence and teach him what its all about to be a dog. Hanns will need an understanding person willing to take the time to help him overcome his fears. Hanns is a sweet boy who will make an excellent companion.

Beau







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.

Nox is a good boy but does need an experienced Doberman owners that will give him set rules and will reinforce basic training that his foster mom has been brushing him up on.

Nox does have allergies and gets monthly allergy injections as well as eats an over the counter Natural Balance LID limited ingredient dogfood, and can only have certain treats.
