Toro







Update! Toro has had both surgeries and is now recovering and getting around very well. He will be up and running like he never had two sore legs very soon and will be excited to get adopted in the next few weeks. He will begin a new life with two new legs and if very excited to find his forever someone. 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. Toro will need a fenced yard as he has a high prey drive for little critters. Please read our adoption policy and if you qualify fill out the application to adopt Toro.

Maysa is still nursing her babies and we are trying to put some weight on her. She is a dotting mother who is trying her best to care for her large litter, who will all be available for adoption in a few weeks so stay tuned for more on the babies coming soon.

While she will be getting care for some time while in rescue, we would love to start finding her forever family as soon as possible. Maysa is a sweet girl with a gentle and kind temperament who deserves to find her happy ever after home. Please consider donating to help with her very expensive heart worm treatment. DRM is a non-profit 501C3 charitable organization, recognized by the State of Minnesota, and is able to help these homeless animals with donations. 100% of our donations go directly back to helping and saving our dogs.

Sabar







Adoption Pending! Adoptable hunky hunk Sabar! Words that describe him: Majestic, handsome, ginormous, stately, magnificent, grand, mouth dropping, the biggest damn doberman you may ever see in your lifetime. Words to describe his temperament: sweet, happy, obedient, obsessed (with chickens and small furry critters) More about Sabar: Very agile, can jump a two foot hurdle with beautiful grace and ease, a dog so big he doesn't even know it, housebroke, looking for a home with no other male canines but he enjoys the lady canines, completely misunderstood in his past due to lack of canine knowledge, looking for a smart master with Doberman experience who can handle the brute strength of this fine specimen. To get more information on adopting Sabar go to the website at www.dobermanrescueminnesota.com Note: He is maybe one of the COOLEST looking Dobermans specimens ever seen, but, Sabar must have a fenced yard and will need an experienced Doberman owner who can keep up with his smart Doberman wiliness, and can handle his massive size and strength. Sabar is 2 years old, neutered, on heart worm preventative and up to date on his vaccines. Sabar is a dog intended for a serious Doberman owner who has history of owning this wonderful breed.

Mason







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.

J-Lo









Miss Independent who is sweet as ever! This girl LOVES her people! J-Lo is a 3 years old, blue dober-girl, with natural ears and docked tail. This southern belle, comes all the way from Texas to Minnesota to find that home.

She would love to be the only dog so she can get all the attention in the home from her people. J-Lo will need a home with no cats or small furry critters. J-Lo is a very fearless, confident girl who will need to have a very fearless, confident master who can guide her to be the best dog ever. J-Lo is a pleaser. She would love to begin an obedience class with her new master. J-Lo is housebroke, crate trained, all vetted, spayed and micro-chipped and ready to find her for ever home.

Bruiser





Bruiser is 2 years and 9 months old, so still acts sort of like a big puppy. Bru is a large red male with floppy ears and a docked tail. He is thriving now that he is in a loving home environment. He is ok with cats, he will tree them if they run, but does not do anything but look at them after that. He is such a happy, happy dog, and loves to play with his person, especially fetch. He loves going for long walks and is working on leash manners and training. He is very smart so picking it up quickly, all that is needed is a slight correction and he behaves, you can tell he just enjoys it so much. Bru has a very sweet and loving side. The second day I had him after our walk, when I was sitting on the bench taking my shoes off, he pushed his front end all the way up between my legs and just laid his head in my arms as if to say thank you. He stayed there for several minutes just wanted to be close and be stroked. Loves his people. Bru knows, sit, shake, right paw only and down commands. Working on Wait and Stay and some basic manners. He learns fast. The key with him is exercise first, with a little discipline, he picks it all up quickly. So darn smart! Bru has a lot of energy so with a less experienced doberman owner, he would need a physical fence.

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.

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.

Nina





Heart worm positive. Hi, my name is Nina. I was picked up as a stray on the Mexican boarder town of Laredo Texas and I am around 2 years old. I have just arrived in Minnesota from Texas and I love it here already. I am getting help for some pesky heart worms and tick diseases, but I am feeling better every day. I am very well mannered, housebroken and love to talk to my humans. I sure do love snuggling in the blankets and ask politely to get on the couch. I am fascinated with the squirrels and watch them quietly. Once I am all better, I would love a fenced yard so I can run and play with those squirrels all day. I will be fully vetted, treated for the heart worm, spayed and up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. I would like to secure my family and be ready to move in once all my vet care is completed with DRM.
