I forgot not everyone follows my facebook or dog blog!

This is Suvie, a senior girl who was in pretty dire straits when she passed my facebook feed. She turned out to be at the same vet I take Creed to nowadays, so I put out a call for my friends in the area to see if they could pick her up and hold her until I could either find a rescue for her or work out something with my [previous] landlord.

More or less- her owner was an elderly woman who "went to the hospital" and the woman's family didn't want to deal with taking care of the dog, so dropped her off at the vet to be euthanized. Suvie was about 8.5 years old at the time, with various health problems, so a tech put out an alert on FB to see if anyone could get her before her three day hold was up. We still aren't sure what happened to the original owner... she put a lot of love and care into Suvie and was apparently very dedicated in the past (the vet had seen Suvie all her life, so we have all of her notes and files), but it's been several months and the vet has not heard from her asking after the dog at all. We assume she passed away or is in a very delicate place with her health.

A coworker of mine saw the call I put out and went to grab her the day her hold ended, then brought her to me and I've sort of been helping them take care of her since! It was a rough settling in period... she did not understand why her world suddenly changed or who these new strangers were, and did not know who she could trust or why she was in so much pain. Apparently one of her medications for Addisons and arthritis had been paused during the uprooting and so she was so very confused and scared and hurting, not to mention grieving the sudden loss of her previous owner.

That was back in fall. Suvie is now on a correct course of medication, she turned 9 with her new family, she got her Canine Good Citizen, and she's apparently been having a great time running around the property and helping them finish off their dinners She is a dream for our groomers and loves to run and wrestle with Creed and splash in the various bodies of water we have here in Connecticut. I got them a Meadowcat coat for Christmas and she demands to have it on when she goes out in these New England winters and also hates literally every other coat they've gotten her. She's even a fantastic weight- at rescue she had some muscle wasting I assume from the arthritis and Addisons, but now that she's medicated and active she really bulked up the muscle and trimmed down her tummy.

She's not "mine" mine, but she is sort of shared by me. I adore her owners (who also know another DT member!) and I'm so glad they chose to involve me in her life. I pushed them to seek out her breeder because she appeared very well bred to me- she is from a show breeder, and her registered name was apparently Dancing in the Moonlight... which to me having a "Moon" baby from my own breeder feels almost like she was sent to my life just like Creed was. They contacted the breeder and the breeder was SO happy to hear that Suvie had landed safely with them. She did have a return contract that I guess the previous family either didn't know about or chose not to honor, which bothered the breeder of course, but the relief was evident during the initial phone call of "hey, you don't know me, but I have this dog that I think you bred, here's what happened, she's safe with us".

That's a wonderful story....thanks for coming here to tell us. I'm one of those out-of-the-loop non-facebook people, so I never get to hear of these things.

Hey all- Suvie and Creed attended Suvie's owners' couple's shower (they're getting married!!!!!) and we had a little doberman party there with another DT friend Photos to come... But it was nice to finally meet up and let our dogs be crazy together.

Oh and... Suvie is very resistant to the balance the cookie on the nose trick Creed just goes cross-eyed until I tell him to flip and catch it. I think Suvie says she's too old for nonsense...

Creed is a very handsome boy, even cross-eyed, LOL!, but Suvie's face... she's SO beautiful, and and just EXUDES sweetness! I'm so glad she's in a good home now. It must have been so traumatic for her, but like all good dogs, she'll adapt and love her new family just as much as she did her previous one. I have to say, there's nothing like a rescue dog. They KNOW. And they love stronger because of it.

I'd recommend starting a new thread....you'll get better responses instead of piggy-backing on someone else's thread that is not on this topic.

Bugsy- That sounds incredible!

Is your boy registered? If so, myself and a lot of other DT members would be interested in seeing his pedigree. (so would a lot of Doberman longevity researchers....)
