I have recently gotten a Doberman,from a lady who rescued her from a puppy mill. she is very thin and covered in scabs from where the other dogs, fought and kept her from food. what can I do to "fatten" her up and into better shape?

Welcome to the forum! Has your new pup had a thorough vet exam? That's the first place to start. After she gets a clean bill of health, I'd put her on a quality food and she should start gaining.

Yes, vet checkup first. Then a good quality food will fatten her up in no time.
Bless you for rescuing!
