Exclamation Doberman needs a home!

Hello all, I am hoping that I have come to the right place for help here. I am in a bad situation with a female doberman that I just bought/rescued out of a bad situation this week. 2yr old female was a one owner pet, and the owner remarried 3 months ago and as soon as her new husband moved in he kicked duchess out in the cold. She was on a short chain for 2 1/2 months before I got her, she was filthy, her nails were almost an inch long, and the bottom side of her neck was rubbed raw from a big thick collar she had on the whole time, probably pulling at the chain constantly, trying to get free. This girl is beautiful, spayed, microchipped, AKC registrable, housebroken, and very docile but last night I was making a sandwich, myself, my husband, my son, and duchess were all in the kitchen and I dropped a piece of baby spinach on the floor. My 18 month old son is a big helper and he went to pick up the baby spinach and duchess slammed him to the ground and held him there with her snout growling at him. My husband and I are now afraid to keep her. I babysit a small child, and Duchess jumps over the gate that I have. I need to find her a good home, and everyone that has shown interest in my local area wants her as an outdoor dog. NOT HAPPENING, period. I rescued her from that situation, and I know from personal experience with my mother's doberman that they can't regulate their body temps well enough to be outside. I live in a very small house, and although I could sequester her to a back bedroom while my son is awake, that is no life for a dog. I am afraid to even let my son play in the same room as her now, even though that was the only time we have ever had an issue. She sits for her food, and I can grab her bowl in the middle of her meal with no problem, so I am just lost here. I need advice on what to do, or help finding a good (experienced) doberman lover to adopt her. I have all of her paperwork, and I would only ask to be reimbursed what I paid for her (less than most shelter fees, but I don't know if I'm allowed to post a dollar amount on this forum) She is a beautiful dog, but I don't want to live in fear of this happening again...

She is spayed, and not UTD on vaccinations. I have an appointment for her to see my vet on the 16th because it is the earliest I could get her in. I think she is only a few months behind though, I would have to pull her paperwork out again. Fully house trained, black and tan, microchipped through avid, wil be 2 on 1-28-13. I would honestly give her a second chance if I thought that it was a one time thing. This was NOT a bite incident. She pawed him to the ground while growling, and pinned him with her paw and her snout which was only oped wide enough for a growl. She has no other history of violence towards humans but has had some food issues with dogs in her past and hates cats. I took her jogging saturday with my mother's dog and they did just fine together, so I guess a home with other dogs would be a case by case basis and they would need to eat separately. I do not want this girl going into a shelter. When she leaves my home, her next destination needs to be a forever home. Even though I am upset about the situation I cannot put an animal through the fear of a shelter.

Would you consider turning her over to a reputable Doberman rescue? I will tell you up front though that a rescue will not pay for a dog.

I agree with astra. The best option for the dog is to turn her over to a reputable doberman rescue. They would be the best equiped to find her a good home. A rescue would be able to make a house call to any possible adopters to check out the home situation as well as a vet 'background check'. I hope you are able to do the best for her, and thank you so much for taking her in.

A rescue does sound like your best option as Astra said they will not pay for her.

wow, well, I don't have kids at home, just me, a 51 year old woman, her 10 1/2 year old dobie/black lab mix and my 8 year old grey tabby. I've trained all of my three animals, including the cat, to use the doggy door that has up to 100 lb capacity. Do you have a photo?

sorry, still thinking Gracie is in the house somehow. Yeah, just me, my older dog and a grey tabby with a pink nose and emerald green eyes. I wonder who that 3rd mammal will be in my home? I'll keep you guys posted!

OP, I really admire all you've done for this girl and commend you for attempting to stick it out with her, but I feel with a child as young as yours is it is best to rehome her. And as others have said, your absolute BEST chance of getting her a great home would be through a reputable rescue.

I'm sure having your money back would help but if you are able to put that aside (and it certainly sounds like you only want the best for her) then please let a rescue help you. A beautiful girl will have an excellent chance at adoption and the rescues don't mess around when it comes to their screening process.

I would consider it if she would go into a loving foster home. Not some kennel with tons of dogs in it.

And of course I can set the money issue aside. my son's safety is my number one issue so I really need her gone as quickly as possible without traumatizing the dog in the process.

I think she sounds like a very sound dog considering she growled, warned and didn't bite. That being said, I agree a good rescue is the way to go as it sounds like she didn't get a good start to life and could use some time in a foster learning the ropes. Thanks for getting her out of the cold, and giving her a chance.

Most doberman rescue groups aren't run out of a facility but rather a network of foster homes and people who help coordinate transport, vetting, funding, etc. so it's likely she would end up in a foster home if you turn her over. Hope she finds a good home, good luck.

First, bless you and thank you for caring enough about her to get her out of the cold and off that chain.

Second, no--it is very rare indeed any dog with a reputable rescue would ever be in any kind of boarding/kennel situation.

Rescues are just a group of humans who care about dogs who need help--and these dogs are welcomed into our homes and given food and love and are evaluated to see what they like, what they do not, how much work and training they may have missed out on in their earlier life, etc, etc.

In addition, they are taken to the vet and brought up to date on any needs--but that money is hard to come by and rescue folks pretty much stay broke, so everyone who has mentioned it so far is correct--they won't pay for the Dobergirl--and in fact, it's customary to offer some sort of donation to whichever rescue is taking her to care for her safely and find her the best home they can.

They will require an application, references, a vet reference, and a home check--and--this is very important--they will be a safety net for that girl, for the rest of her life.

While we always hope we've done a great job in screening and making adoption decisions, if because of some unforeseen circumstances the new adoptive home does not work out to be her forever home--then a reputable rescue takes her back and works hard to find a "really forever" home, again.

That would be super hard for you to do, obviously, with your concerns for your child's safety, so that is a real advantage for you.

Thank you, for not prioritizing the money--you'd be amazed how many folks do that, and it's a shame for kids and dogs alike.

As to the poster who keeps posting about wanting her--hey, it's always great to have offers of homes, but please don't just send her to someone that has not been thoroughly screened and checked out.

Heck, I've hung out here for years and feel I "know" a lot of these folks, seen a jillion pics of their homes and yards, etc, but I'd STILL put any potential adopter from here thru the same screening process. It's just safer and makes sense.

Let us know if we can help point you to a rescue.

You said you'd missed before that this Dobergirl is not good with cats, but now you know.

Since your cat obviously has free roam, with access to your yard thru a doggie door, how would you possibly keep the kitty safe? Just asking.

How sad. Your heart must be breaking right at this moment in time. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that light is in the shape and form of the wonderful people who work in rescues.

Please let the people on this site who know your area etc guide you to a reputable rescue and let your girl go to one and find that forever home she so rightly deserves.

We will keep our fingers and paws crossed all turns out okay for you, your family and of course that wonderful Dobegirl you so kindly rescued. Bless you.
