Available Dogs






Stella







Stella is 7 years old who is looking for her for ever home. Stella is an all natural Doberman, with long full tail, natural ears and very petite. All of 7 years old, she acts like a youngster and loves to play ball, get butt scratches, snuggles from her people, and cuddle in her blankets. She will actually cover herself with her blanket when shes ready for a nap. Very cute! She would like a home that will be able to give her daily play time and a chance to run. Because she loves the wind in her fur and can run like the wind, Stella will need a fenced yard. She would make a great companion for a stay at home or retired person as she loves to be with people. She does well with children also! Stella will be all vetted prior to adoption, including shots, spayed and micro-chipped. All of our dogs are on flea and heart worm medication. Please read our adoption policy if you are interested in adopting Stella and fill out the application to be considered.

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.

Hanns









If only he could tell us his story. Hanns is a one and a half year old, male Doberman who is looking for a for ever home. Hanns does have a preference for women, and is a bit timid and wary of men, so we can only imagine what might have happened to him in his previous life. Hanns loves to go for walks, smelling all the wonderful things in the woods, and loves to play with his foster sister. Hanns is currently being fostered in a home with 4 other dogs, cats and chickens. He would love to have another female canine in his new home, to help mentor him and teach him what its all about to be a dog. Hanns will need an leader willing to take the time to help him overcome his fear of men. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heart worm negative and micro-chipped. Please read our adoption policy and if you qualify please apply to adopt Hanns. PS, check out my video. yep, that's me hamming it up and running like a fool. I am having a blast with my foster sister.

Sampson









Adoption Pending! 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.

Victor







One of the sweetest boys ever! Victor is a 4 year old, docked and cropped, blue Doberman who was an owner surrender. Victor is a sweet guy who will be very loyal to whom ever adopts him. He would love to have a home with a female canine, but would do well in a home with no other dogs so he could get all the attention. Victor does very well with big dogs, small dogs, and even a flock of chickens. He has not lived with children in his previous home but does very well with them when out and about in public settings. He loves to play ball and go for walks off leash as he has excellent recall. Victor is a true velcro Doberman, he loves people and loves being close to his people. Victor is crate trained and housebroke. Victor is neutered and fully vetted.

Athena







Adoption Pending! Athena is a 5 year old female Doberman who come to us from Texas. Athena is sweet as they come, gentle, soft, shy, kind and loves human attention. We think she has had many litters in her past life. She has been found to be hypothyroid with DRM, which could explain the reason she is very overweight. She loves to go to dogparks, loves to carry around her baby and loves to be with people. Athena is an absolute gem and will make a wonderful companion. See a video of her at https://www.facebook.com/733532706770262/videos/788198811303651/?theater

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.

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.

Rose







Adoption Pending! A Texas Rose! Little Ms. Rose just arrived from Texas on the wings of many rescue angels and is settling into her Minnesota foster home. Rose is 4 years old, black and tan with natural ears and docked tail. Rose is very sweet and a bit shy upon first meeting. She will need a home with an understanding patient owner who can help her become a more confident dog. Rose will require a fenced yard and willing adopters who will do obedience classes with her to help build confidence. Rose is a snuggler and loves to get human cuddling time in her foster home. She would benefit from having another canine in the home to be her mentor. Rose has been around cats while in foster and seems uninterested in them, so a home with dog savvy cats would work with this girl. Rose is fully vetted and ready to find her for ever home. Please read our adoption policy and if you qualify, fill out the adoption application.

Everyone can use some cash! Cash is a 3 year old red neutered, male Doberman with natural ears and docked tail.

J-Lo







J-Lo is a 3 years old, blue dober-girl, with natural ears and docked tail. J-Lo is all vetted, spayed and micro-chipped and ready to find her for ever home. This southern belle, comes all the way from Texas to Minnesota to find that home. J-Lo is strong, energetic and tends to play rough with other dogs, so a younger male dog who needs a willing play partner would be a best fit for this girl. She may even 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, learn English language, as we think she may have been in a Spanish speaking home prior. J-Lo is housebroke and crate trained and ready to find her for ever home! Please read our adoption policy and apply if you qualify.

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.
