We have adopted!

A couple of weeks ago, we drove up to DRU in New Hampshire, and adopted a wonderful red boy named "Hugger". Our Hagan left a huge hole in our hearts when he died and, even though no other dog will ever replace him, Hugger is helping us all heal. He is really a sweetheart: obedient, polite, and affectionate! He had been surrendered to DRU six months ago, because of a couple of "attempted nips", but he's shown absolutely no signs of anything like that to us. He plays with purpose, like most Dobermans, so I wonder if his previous family got wiggy about that.

Our Frauke and him are best buds now (she only showed him the "Alien smile" for the first couple of days). We did "crates, gates, and separate rooms" at the beginning and gradually introduced them to each other...success! They now play nice, sleep next to each other in our bedroom, and take naps on their couch in the family room. We're still not letting our guard down and we're keeping an eye on them at all times, but so far, so good.

Hugger has an incredibly strong prey drive (we were warned about it), so we'll have to find ways to try to desensitize him a little, if possible (he's always looking out the windows - lots of wildlife around). Our only concern at this point is the fact that he gets EXTREMELY anxious in the car, so we're working on that, doing very short drives around the neighborhood for now - we'll see if that helps, if not, we'll try a crate or something else.

He'll be 8 years old next month and he has been diagnosed with myxomatous mitral valve heart disease; he's on Sotalol & Mexiletine (by his previous cardiologist, Dr. MacGregor), we'll be following up with our Dr. Morris in a few months, as indicated. He's full of life and very active, obviously his condition is not slowing him down. Here's a picture of him, I hope it works, I had the hardest time recovering my Flickr account!

Thank you for adopting your new senior Dobe, Hugger, knowing his pre existing medical problems!

(Finally, a very descriptive name, e.g. Velcro, Needy, 2nd Skin, Whiner or Leech, to fit a male Dobe... )

Like his picture, please post more...

Be interesting to hear how long it takes your Dobergal, Frauke, to set Hugger straight on who's the boss.... (how does one pronounce her name?)

Similar here. HDD was surrendered "because he was aggressive with their other dog", but I've seen no signs of dog aggressiveness with him. He does have a tendency to crunch down hard on your hands when he gets over-excited however (cattle dog mix ), so I wonder.

Maybe I should start a poll.

LOL--you don't have to start a poll, Mell. I've had excited Dobes yank me off my feet but it was my Afghan Hound who saw something (heavens only knows what) as we were leaving a dog show and were on our way to the car lugging a bunch of stuff (well, my husband was lugging a bunch of stuff). He was behind me and yelled something--the hound was at the end of a six foot leash and in front of me so I turned to ask my husband what he wanted. He said "Too late!" as the dog yanked me off my feet--and pulled me into a very big and fairly deep mud puddle. Then to add insult to injury the dog, laid down and rolled in the mud.

Thank heavens we were leaving the show--an Afghan Hound in full show coat isn't something you really want to put in a car when they've rolled in a mud puddle--but my husband didn't really want to put me in the car--it was a toss up which of us was muddier.

Some memories are better than others...

[QUOTE=spocksdad;4118163]Thank you for adopting your new senior Dobe, Hugger, knowing his pre existing medical problems!

Yup, this will make our 3rd Dobe with heart issues, but at least we have their cardiologist on "speed dial"!

(Finally, a very descriptive name, e.g. Velcro, Needy, 2nd Skin, Whiner or Leech, to fit a male Dobe... )

He came with that name and we decided not to change it, besides, he "hugs" with his front paws sometimes when he plays.

Like his picture, please post more...

Thanks, I'll do that, now that I know that my Flickr is working again.

Be interesting to hear how long it takes your Dobergal, Frauke, to set Hugger straight on who's the boss.... (how does one pronounce her name?)

Frauke is of German origin, it means "little lady" and it's pronounced something like "Frow-ke" - a friend of ours, unable to pronounce it, used to call her "Froggy".



That video is hilarious, I hope that it doesn't happen to me, haha. He's very good at "heel", thanks to the wonderful trainer at DRU, but there's always that moment...

Maybe I should start a poll.
(Quietly raises hand...) Luckily, I didn't land in a pond, but I did get dragged on my keester through the mud. It was my first boy, Ninja, and we had gone to the park across the street (late at night) so he could go off-leash and run, and his favorite friend was there, OMG. They were just leaving, but Ninja saw Charlie (Dobe/GSD mix, go figure) coming around the corner and lunged to greet him. I had a good hold on the leash, so I didn't let go, but I should have. He pulled me right off my feet and dragged me several feet, in very wet and slippery mud. I was so embarrassed, and Charlie's owner made it worse by rushing over to help me to my feet. I wish I could have disappeared into the mud, to be honest. And that was only the first time. There was my second boy, Thor, who discovered the cats right as we got out of the car the day we brought him home, and dragged me across the gravel driveway, face down. Ouch. We did some serious leash training after that.

I agree! It's nice to hear about the "older" Dobes getting a forever home. They didn't end up in rescue because they WANTED to be there, so I love hearing about them finding new loving homes and families. We adopted a 10 year old red boy some years back, and he was SO sweet. He lost his little old lady and ended up in a shelter. He was so bewildered and confused, but we became inseparable in short order and he had another three good years with us. He was a GREAT dog. I wish we'd had more than three years, but they were very good years, and that's all that matters.

These new loveys never replace our old ones but they help put our hearts back together.
Thank you! It's very interesting, Hugger does so many things that my sweet Hagan did, it's almost unreal. He does make me smile often and also makes me shed some tears at times - it's wild that they share so many quirks. Boys can really be clowns - I think that Hagan would have approved of Hugger...

I totally understand. Sugar sometimes reminds me of Coco especially the way I see the twinkle in his eyes at times like she is looking at me. I felt bad one day that he has spent some of his first year watching mama cry. But that boy always comes and kisses his mama's face when this happens.

He has definitely helped mama try to put her heart back together and for that I am so grateful.

Congrats again to you and your family. I love his name so much!

He's a really nice looking dog. I don't mean this in a terrible way, but sometimes in rescue you don't see such decent structure. And he has a nice dark coat color, and I'm shocked his nails are in such decent condition, too!

I really like him.

Thank you and I know what you're saying. We're aware that he's from a BYB, but also we're also pleasantly surprised, especially at his demeanor. I'm very happy about his nails too! He was groomed nicely at DRU and I already Dremeled him a couple of times (he just lays there and offers his paws). My DH and I think that we won the rescue lottery with him!
