Tell me about your rescue Dobe

I'd love to hear how you found your rescue Dobe, how you chose him/her, and how they've blossomed in your home. Basically, give me a little synopsis of your rescue's story.


(prepare yourselves for warm fuzzies.)

I'll need a novel to post

I'll just post about Rah right now to get the ball rolling.
I had just lost my first dobe, Bowie to dilated cardiomyopathy. I had gone through so much with him - temperament issues, health problems galore, you name it. I had decided I was finally going to get a little male pup from a responsible breeder I was comfortable with, but my life was empty. I had Willow, and elderly rescue bitch at home but she had her own baggage to deal with (I only had her a short 8 months) and I needed a dobe to cuddle with and love (Willow loved me on her own terms, and vice versa - no doubt about it - but she was uncomfortable with most physical displays).

I searched all over and was actually rejected by animal control for an out of control 1 year old female that I liked. At the same time I had contacted DRU to put out feelers - and early Saturday, April 29th I made the drive to Sandown NH with a good friend who was going to make sure I didn't take another "project dog" (all my others are) - I wanted a stable dog with reasonably good health. And it was supposed to be an adult female.

I told all this to Claire, and sat myself down on the couch in the office as they started the parade of dobes. Reds, blues, fawns, blacks, big ones, little ones - so many wonderful dogs. A blue female that was adorable. A big red male that was a total love but had real allergies (and I kept stressing - FEMALE!!! I was on the waiting list for a male pup!), a big black male that reminded me so much of Bowie that it was hard to look at him.

Claire kept popping in a male here and there, and in the middle out came this insane blue pup. He BOUNDED in the room, play bowed at the old dogs in their crates, jumped on the couch, and licked my face. He ran around again, too idiotic to control his own legs, fell a few times, and just made a big fool of himself. He was a doofus, through and through. I offered cookies and he was so food motivated. We kept looking at other dogs, and one red male caught my eye - standard dog, very good looking, about 2 years old, calm. I couldn't help it, but the male dogs were going to make a better fit than the females. While we were discussing who to consider, I made an offhand remark that the blue boy was cute.

Neither the blue boy or the red male had been cat tested, so we started with my first choice. The red male came out and immediately tried to kill the cat - we couldn't even distract him once the cat was in sight. He was a definite no - I had two cats at home and above all, my current animals were not going to be put in danger. I was sad, and said - well, I guess lets bring out the blue male?

Out came the blue male, then called Vinny - and he looked at the cat, play bowed, and then ran around. We let him sniff the cat and he flipped it over with his nose. I sat with the cat and he bounced on the couch and fell off. Cat test was passed!

We talked about where he had come from - he was found running loose in CT with a collar embedded into his neck and was kept at a vet clinic. A Jamaican gang was searching shelters for him, wanting their "guard dog" back, and the shelter sent an emergency email to DRU asking them to take him so that they couldn't get him back (his "hold" period was long up, but he was still at the vets due to health issues). He was brought to DRU 3 days before I met him. Talked about how insane he was - active all the time, never stopped, how most people would have a real time taking a 10 month old with this activity level and he was the type of dog returned to shelters/rescues when people didn't know what they were getting into...


Claire asked if I wanted to introduce him to Willow - at 9 years old, she was grumpy and quite the bitch, and we had doubts how she would welcome a 10 month old bouncy male pup, but I said - what do we have to lose?

Within 2 minutes, they were running around the yard together, playing and having a blast. I couldn't deny it- everything was working out. He was wonderfully social, ok with cats, loved Willow and she loved him. I brought out the dumbell and he lit up! I brought out toys and he played with me for as long as I wanted him to.

It was too soon to even hope that this boy could possibly be my next competition prospect, but he was fitting in every other way. I turned to Claire and my friend and said - what do I do? He wasn't even vetted at that point, not ready to go - Claire said if I wanted him, I could have him that day, just do the vetting myself (they knew me very well for a few years and trusted me - Willow was a foster for them that I failed at fostering, and they had helped me train my prior male, Bowie).

I asked my friend, and she said do it. I looked at the blue boy and said - what do I have to lose? Into the crate he went and back to MA...

and the rest is history. I could never have known just what a hole he filled - he has truly been a gift from Bowie - offering me everything Bowie was to me, and everything Bowie could never give me. Bowie sent him, no doubt - sent me a dog that could physically do what Bowie never could even if he wanted to, sent me a dog that was stable that I wouldn't have to worry about.

Rah is simply everything I could have asked for and everything I wanted and needed, even if I didn't know it at the time. The goofy blue pup has grown up to be a goofy blue adult male with drive, determination, biddability, a rock solid temperament, and a wicked sense of humor. I only wish I was a better handler to do him true justice.

I've got so many hopes for Rah, but even if he never accomplishes them, he will remain a gift from Bowie that I will always be thankful for. He may not have a ton of hair, but what he lacks there he makes up for with heart.

I've met Rah, and he is everything Kim says....... plus a little - LOL!

My personal Dobermans have never been rescues, we did have a rescued Greyhound for 8 years - a very cool dog, but not a Doberman :-)

I've fostered for rescue and will post a picture of my two with one of my former fosters as soon as I get the OK from his owner. The picture is being used for a self promotion mailer for his owner who is a commercial photographer, and I can't post it till it is "out". I think many of the people here know the story of Gabe which is why I am so looking forward to posting his "NOW" picture :-)

DoberKim,
Awww, what a great story your meeting Rah is. Seems you two were ment for each other. He is so handsome.

Velmadobe,
I don't think I was here when you had your foster Gabe, but I think I have read about him and seen the "before" pictures. I would love to see how he turned out. Seeing an animal in that state of condition brakes my heart.

Nike (pronounced Neeka) is our first dobe. We are the epitome of the novice dobe owners. lol.

Our story:
When I begged my husband for another dog he said, "If we're gonna get another dog, it's going to be a Doberman, so that we can finally get rid of our security system!" I thought he was joking. He was not. Prior to that statement, I'd never in my *life* thought about owning a dobe! So that night, I looked on the internet and was *instantly* lured in. I don't need to tell y'all why!

Through a series of phone calls (precipitated by our vet) we were eventually contacted by MaryJo (Velmadobe) who gave us lots of info on the breed. We decided to collect more tangible information by going to shows and such. She was gracious enough to meet us at several shows and introduce us to her own, Louise. It didn't take long to *completely* fall in love with the breed. Our only doubts were 1) Luna's acceptance of another pet 2) rescue dog V breeder pup.

Ultimately, MJ hooked us up with rescue who had just had a litter born. It was the best of both worlds.. a rescue *and* a puppy!
she said, and I quote, "I know you are not in a big rush for a puppy, but this kind of opportunity for a young puppy from rescue is very rare. I think sometimes things are just meant to be and one of these girls might be just perfect for you."

We were so worried that our older dog would not accept a pup so we set up a meeting. I'll never forget that day. We fell in love and Luna got a new buddy.

Today, on the very day I write this, our 'puppy' is a year old. It has been a rollercoaster of a year. It took some time to make the adjustment from retriever to dobe mentality. And just when we thought we 'got it', the Dobergods have decided to up the anti in order to test our fortitude.. with a fear/insecurity issue that has surfaced. It's not fair. It's not easy. I think the casual dog owner would have given up by now. Nike, my sweet dobergirl...

I think things *do* happen for a reason and despite your issues, I can't believe how much I love you!

Doberkim-
Thanks for posting your very special story about Rah. It brought tears to my eyes and warm fuzzies all over! And who could resist that face!

Velmadobe-
It takes a kind and generous soul to foster. I wish I had the extra space. I guess I'll have to stick to volunteering for now

Lyngr-
I think things happen for a reason too. And it definitely sounds like Nike was meant to be with you!

Peaches and I were meant to be. I have no doubt about it. As many of you know Cole died suddenly the day after amputating his leg due to osteosarcoma. Just a couple of weeks after he died, a poster on another board posted pictures of her newest foster. She explained she had just come from a foster home in Georgia where she was fostered for almost 2 years with no real interest in her.

I was not looking for another Doberman yet, but when I found out she only had 3 legs it got my attention because I felt like I was suppose to have a 3 legged Doberman in Cole.

I contacted her new foster mom and she told me what she knew about her and I was given her other foster mom's # to talk to her about Peaches. My kids were 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 years at the time so I needed to know what kind of exposure she had to kids. What is really weird is come to find out, I "know" her first foster mom from another totally none dog related board.

From my conversations with both foster moms it sounded like Peaches would fit right in here and she does. I had to tweak a few things with her in regards to my kids as she was use to older kids mostly, but she shipped right into shape.

She is an amazing dog and such a good girl. I don't know if it was Cole or my dad that is responsible for Peaches and I to find each other, but I sure am glad it happened.

I'm sitting here crying after reading every-ones stories. I can only offer up my 3 rescues of a German Short-hair Pointer, and 2 Weimaraner boys. I lost all three of them in the last 2 years. Each had their own issues, but were a blessing to have owned and loved. I will rescue again in the future. I wanted one last puppy in this lifetime, and having wanted a Dobie for 23 years, I went for it. I think it is just as hard to raise a puppy properly as it is to Rescue a dog and deal with existing issues. I found that all my rescued dogs were immediately glued to my side and unconditionally loved me. Petey is still deciding who he is most attached to...it better be me, after all this work!

Yep, throw any and all rescue stories at us - Dobe or non-Dobe.

THANK YOU so much, all of you, for sharing your stories. I am also teary-eyed reading them. This is just what I was hoping for... When I do get a Doberman, I have been torn as to whether to get puppy or rescue.... I am very much leaning toward rescue - my main concern with a rescue being that of health issues, but even tested pups have the possibility of developing something... We shall see.

Please, keep them coming!

Erica

Okay, I was just not able to do this after reading Kim's story and the emotional state I've been in but I'll start with the doberman who rescued us and made us realize how much this breed means to our lives. He was not a rescue, basically we stole him but I do think he qualifies.

We knew Mansen when my mother-in-law lived next door to him. He roamed the neighborhood after escaping his yard all the time and then finally the owners just gave up and didn't care anymore to get him back in the yard. When they did bring him home they would beat him and only fed him when they thought of him. Neighbors told us stories of seeing him kicked down steps into the pool, held under water during parties where I guess it was cool to show your friends how long your dog could hold his breath under water, blew pot smoke in his mouth and nostrils and numerous other complaints that just hurt my soal. The boy was broken and afraid of everything until the day we brought our moving truck to my MIL's to pack up my husbands things to move into our first home together. Mansen was this little, timid, scared of his own shadow boy who wouldn't let us touch him there but kept leaping into our truck. When we would go to reach for him he would jump out and run away until he got the idea that maybe we wouldn't hurt him. When it came time for us to go and after hearing the stories on him we just didn't get him out of the truck and took him straight to the vets office.

He was full of whelps, skin infections, and weighed a whopping 42 lbs at approximately 10 months old and heart worm positive. The vet suggested we march him to the animal control, explain the situation and ask them how we could keep him. They documented his condition and the vets notes and told us to take him home and consider him ours.

Mansen immediately took to us and my dog, Summer. There was an immediate transformation as soon as we got him home. We were moving in that day but he was a perfect gentleman playing with Summer and nudging and giving sweet kisses when he could get near us without furniture or boxes in our arms.

The first night he slept with us and was my husbands pillow. My husband was worried he would crush his little bones he looked so fragile but Mansen kept wiggling right underneath him.

When I tell you this boy NEVER got in trouble I'm not exagerating. He was always a perfect gentleman. He never showed timidness again after that day, was playful and energetic, but always the gentleman. He loved to play with his mouth and greet people with his mouth and kiss and love on anyone he'd already met once. First time he met you he invited you in with his mouth on your wrist while walking you into the house. Second time he'd greet you with kisses and enthusiasm.

Mansen was 7 1/2 years old when I noticed him losing weight and started coughing. I was in denial that he was sick. It took me two weeks before I realized that he was declining and that he was very sick. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and we brought him home with the promise that we would make sure he was comfortable and live the last of his days happy. The kids drowned him with more love then the fluid was drowning him until the day that we realized that he just couldn't be happy anymore. He would go into convulsions anytime he got excited. The first time it happened all I could do is hold him and cry. The second time I called my husband so we could go and show him the way to the bridge.

I am so greatful for the 7 years of life we got to share with Mansen and even more greatful that he opened our eyes to the doberman breed and made us all fall head over heels in love with the breed. It was because of him that we decided to get Cleopatra for him to have another energetic dobe to play with. It was because of him that I was more then willing to bring in another rescue and always will be. None will ever compare to him and I know this, just like none will ever compare to Cleo. I still look at his pictures and love how all of them seem to pour out his personality with the big, red nose that always had to be pointing right at the camera. I laugh that all my memories of him is that big, red nose right in the face, the camera and anywhere it could possibly fit along with the big mouth that had to be on something but amazingly never tore anything up (save a nose because of an overly enthusiastic play session with my husbands best friend). As long as I'm alive and have the energy I will have a doberman and it is all because of my big, red boy. I will admit that until the day I met him I never even gave the breed a thought.

Jordan's story is to follow one day and I know already that it will be a happy one. It took him seconds to become part of our family and I look forward to making new memories with him through the years.

Rah is one handsome Doberman! Breaks your heart to think of what might have happened to him had the gang not 'lost' him. Must be something to that old saying that angels watch out for children and fools....and sometimes Dobes....

Ok i just found this thread and love reading everyone elses rescue stories. Since I dont have a dobe yet but we can do non dobes, I will tell about Strike (akitaX) and Gypsy(rottweilerX).

Unfortunately guys, this IS the shorter simpler version! haha!

Gypsy was our first dog- well not really because we had a boxer but that wasnt planned and it was only for a short time. But otherwise she was our first dog. I had begged for a dog for years and finally it got through ( i was 12) We went to our local shelter. A puppy or breeder didnt even enter any of our minds we knew we just wanted to adopt. My parents had some restrictions on size but other then that we didnt have anything in mind. Since i was the one who REALLY wanted the dog, I kind of got to pick. I must have fallen in love with all of them but this one older sweet as can be rottie mix that stole my heart. I sat outside her kennel with my hands through the cage, petting her and talking to her for what seemed like hours. I did this every time i visited her until we got her. I had always like rotties, but ever since having one- I learned more about them and became COMPLETELY OBSESSED. I have rottweiler calenders, mugs, stuffed animals, a statue, pictures GALORE, and the backround of my laptop is usually a rottweiler. Sorry, i get a little carried away sometimes when I talk about them! Anywho I fell totally and completely in love with her and I knew she was the one. She had been in the shelter for more then a year and if we didnt take her I know she would have died there. She was so layed back and calm in her kennel but i remember the first time we got to walk her. My brother and I were out with her and she got off leash(some of the people at the shelter are real idiots and only bother to loop and a leash around the dogs neck, not use the collar!) So she got off and ran around like a phsyco like "I AM FREE, I AM FREE! YOU CANT CATCH ME!" So we frantically ran after her through the mud and all and we did catch her after a few mins. luckily nobody saw that! The day we went to get her I was SOOOOO excited, I litteraly couldnt feel the ground under my feet. We would quickly learn that one of Gypsy's favorite things to do was roll on her back for belly rubs. So we were there with one of the shelter workers, ready to take her home and we were giving her belly rubs when they noticed something was wrong with where she had been spayed(i think it was the stitches or something) and we had to wait to get her. I was so disappointed, but a few days later we got her and when I held the leash as we walked her out to the car she pulled so hard she left an incredibly painful feeling in my hand(when the thin nylon leash practically made me bleed, yes she was small but ROTT strong! and my parents probably should have been holding the leash but i insisted and they let me, lol.) I will never forget that feeling because as much as it hurt me it was nothing compared to the pain that she was leaving behind. We only had her for about a year a half, when we lost her to kidney failure. I could write a billion more things about her. She was far from perfect and honestly would not have been a generally good "first time" dog for most people. But omg was she amazing and she will forever hold a VERY special place in my heart.

When we got Strike, I of course wanted another rottweiler! I fell in love with one and was SET on getting this dog but he was adopted before I could. My brother was there with me when I found out and he said, lets just look around. I was looking at another rottweiler when this abnoctious dog behind me just wouldnt shut up. (thank god he dosnt do that anymore! actually thats the only time he ever did it!) My brother told me we should just look at him. He was cute and I liked him, not in any special way but I though he was nice and sweet. His name was "Striker" and they had him as a sheperd mix! haha i swear EVERY time they dont know what to put they just put sheperd, lol. I went back about a week later with my parents and my other brother, the older one was working, but he suggested we get Strike. So we walked him and my mom was saying to me, "are you sure you want this dog, he dosnt seem very social". Well guess who my mom talks to more then anyone now? So we brought him home and my brother was like "whoa you got him?!" Ever since then we've really never regretted it. We all really love him and he is a super unique dog. Who ever thought you could mix an Akita and a pit and it would come out like this? He is more akita though and Akitas are my next favorite after dobes. We've had him for 5 years now and I hope for many many more!

Sorry that was SOOOO long.

The doberman that made me fall in love with the breed was a rescue. I know I've talked about him before. He was from Illinois doberman rescue and that where I hope to get mine from. I hope to get a black n tan young male someday, just like he was. Although, its not the same one, I already have a name picked out for him.


There are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can't.

Roxy’s Rescue Story

June 10th. of this year will be 1 year since getting our Roxy girl from rescue. She celebrated her 1st. birthday with us the following month. She went into rescue when she was 9 months old and came out of an abusive home with 4 children that tormented her.

Ok back to her story, she was petrified of kids when I first got her(do you blame her?)! You could tell this poor little girl had not had one bit of socialization. I started out very slow and let her kinda take the lead. When out for her first walk she was jumping like a bug at everything. Constantly turning around looking as if something was about to jump her! She would not potty on lead no matter how long we were out, would hold out till we got back home. Thank heavens we have gotten over that hump!

She was extremely wary of other dogs. I have a friend that has Borzois that walks with me. She brought one of her boys and Roxy was terrified of him at first but as I said earlier I let her approach him when she felt comfortable and within 30 minutes she was kissing on him.

The day after getting her I picked up a broom and she about died, it actually made me cry at her reaction, she dropped like a rock to the floor shaking like a leaf! It would not have been pretty if I had seen the former owners at that exact time! As far as I’m concerned if you screw with children or animals heaven help you if I see it!

You can still see her have flashbacks at certain things an she just kinda zones out for a brief second, but they are becoming less frequent. She will now go up to kids and children and kiss them.

I was unable to even put her in an obedience class at first because she could not even begin to keep it together, kept looking around as if any and everthing was going to swallow her up. So we stepped back and about 2 months ago tried again. Our instructor(she & hubby are AKC obed. Judges)uses her grade sheets to evaluate each dog at graduation. I am very happy to announce that she graduated at the top of her class with a score of 198!!!!

She also made me extremely proud this past April when she passed her WAE at 20 months old. To me that is some accomplishment to be able to focus on what she needed to do and put all of the garbage from her past out of mind and take care of business! The ladies from her rescue organazatin were estatic to be able to see her accomplish this!

So all of this said I think my baby girl has made remarkable progress and we are still moving forward and her next adventure will be in agility which begins tomorrow! I look forward in seeing all the things this special little girl can accomplish!!!!

Here are a few pictures of her, the one with she and Gaston was taken on the day we got her. He loved her from the moment they first saw each other and have been best buds ever since. The other 2 pictures are of the first time she actually wanted to approach a child and then she kissed her! Also kissing her buddy Tiger! And The final picture was taken about a month ago with her”Big Brother” Gaston and you can see she is a very happy little girl!

Rudi, Rudi, Rudi..........

I had been working crazy hours as an RN in the ICU and Recovery Room. On-call, weekends, holidays. The cats were fine and I could be gone for up to 5 days with enough food/water and clean litter boxes. I seemed to go out of town atleast once a month for long weekends. I'd been in my house for almost 10 years. I was now into my 30's.....had calmed down quite a bit. Not a lot of going out to bars anymore or staying out til the morning. I decided I wanted to get a dog. (The "cat lady" thing was starting to get to me. Here I was 32 years old, no marriage, no kids. A spinster in the making!) I knew I wanted a Dobe because of the experience I had as a kid with my best-friends Doberman. A big red beauty with natural ears. I wanted a dog that people feared (since I live by myself) Due to BSL and homeowners policies, that limited my search. Come to find out, Dobermans weren't on my policies hot list.
At first, I looked in the local paper for pups. (LOL) Then the research began!!!! I started my reading on-line and went thru a few breeders sites like Hoyt, etc... Even though I had the time to raise a pup, I decided that I might be better off with a teenager going into adulthood. I contacted a local no-kill shelter who had a 2 year old Dobe. When I called, he had already been adopted. I was then referred to look at Petfinder. I found a handsome guy from a rescue in central Ohio. They rescue most breeds, don't have a kennel and foster all of their dogs. I emailed quite a bit with the foster lady, they decided I sounded pretty good and would drive "Titan" down for a home visit. He was a pretty feisty guy, come to find out. We decided if another became available that was more low-key, they'd give me a call.
In the mean time, I checked out the local Dobe rescue, Southwest Ohio Doberman Rescue. I went for a visit at their kennel and met the dobes they had. They only had 4 Dobes in rescue at the time, too old or not cat approved. Subsequently, my name had been referred to Hand Me Down Dobes in Columbus, Ohio by the Foster lady who had Titan. They had recently obtained a stray, he had been vetted and was currently living with the vet the rescue uses. His photo was on Petfinder. I knew by looking at his photo, he had the potential to be mine. ( I felt like a stalker, I checked out his profile on-line multiple times a day, LOL) I was invited up to Columbus (2 hour drive) to their monthly meet-n-greet. It was chaos when I got there. Lots of Dobies, lots of people looking at Dobies. I was afraid he had already been adopted by someone who might have gotten there befor me. But nope! I found his vet/foster, we talked (my home, vet reference and background inspection had already been done by the other rescue) so I was already approved to adopt a dog that day, where many others were just there to look. She gave me Rudi's leash and we went for a walk. (His original name by the rescue was Riley and he was posted as Ryan on Petfinder) Poor lanky, flaky, shy, skinny boy, I thought. I knew I would be able to turn this guy around in no time. I knew I had lots of love to give and I could feel that he did, too. We drove the 2 hours back to my home. He foamed at the mouth the whole ride. Once I got him home we checked out HIS yard, and gave him a bath. It took him a good 6-9 months to be okay with car rides. He'd get into the car without any problems, but then he would get foamy. It took him about just as much time to really let his personality shine. For the longest time, he would just sit or stand and stare at me like he was looking into my soul. At first I thought it was a little freaky or his brain was just growing too big and was about to bust out of his skull, then he would attack me and eat me alive (HAHA!) I soon realized, he knew I saved his life or I was just the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. LOL
Yesterday was our 2 year anniversary. He has been my constant companion, unlike a cat could ever be. I don't know why I waited so long. This was definitely fate. We are so much a like (as much as a human and canine can be). He is my soulmate as far as a dog goes. I remember there was so much tension about...."Oh, gee. This is going to be your FIRST Doberman." I don't know what the big deal was. He is now approximately 4-5 years old. I hope we have many more years together.

6/2005



5/2007

I now can haz a sister?



If you are not fully health testing and titling your Dobermans, I'm not buying. I'm not a sucker for a greeder, back yard breeder or puppy miller. I've done my research......have you???

Since you are welcoming non-dobe stories, closest rescue I have is Doodle. He didn't come from a shelter. I rescued him from what he was and where he was headed.

I recently lost my cream SP and was in search for a new one. I was looking for a puppy to start in showing. I was in contact with some breeders and taking my time to get around and feel around. I wasn't in any hurry.

I heard about Doodle and talked to the lady that had him. He was an older pup that was tossed around a bit to different owners. This final lady did not want him and just wanted to get rid of him. Her major point being that he was registered with three registries. (That was a bonus:rolleyes: ) She was tossing around the idea of keeping him around to breed because of the "awesome stars" in his eyes that were so unique, plus his pedigree was nice.

Being the bleeding heart that I am, I hopped in the car the next day and drove the 4 hours across state lines to see him. I did not expect to see what I did. He was kept in the yard 24/7 and completely unsocialized. The only attention he was given was when his food was put down. He was never groomed. I actually questioned if this was a joke and she was trying to pawn off a newfie puppy. They called him "Dirty" or "Dirty Dog". I wonder why? All he did was run and hide in the dog house because he was so terrified. It took me over an hour to get him out of there. He would nip if you got close the house. He was a complete mental mess.

When I was finally able to lure him out to get a look at him, she kept commenting on his eyes and how cute they were. She wanted to pass it on and have puppies with the same eyes. I had to take him with me. My show dog would have to wait until another day. I wasn't really looking to deal with the issues that he had, but I had to help him.

I loaded him up, drove the way home and took him into my vet for a check up. He checked his eyes and diagnosed him with Persistant Pupillary Membranes. Something that I have watched over the years for progression. Where Doodle's are located, he basically looks through a broken window. The rest of the exam came out good and I set him up for his neuter.

He came home and immediately took to the dogs. They were the only friends that he wanted. They began building confidence in him that he didn't have and making him feel at ease. He wanted nothing to do with the house or me. It would be three more days for me to lure him into the front door and him to feel comfortable to approach me. Didn't help that I threw on the table clipped him immediately to get rid of the excessive hair and matts. I am sure he felt better after that though. He did take to grooming like a pro. That is one thing I was impressed with.

The road has been long and hard. I wouldn't take an inch of it back. I have never regretted my decision and never will. He has come in his own and proven to be a brilliant dog that I would have never thought been there the day that I brought him home. Everyday that we work together he amazes me with what he does and how far he has come. I hope that all our work will be in top shape this summer when he gets his therapy dog (knock on wood). That is something I would have never seen him accomplish being as timid as he was. You can try to tear them down, but you will never tear down their soul. They will prevail.

Besides, who can ever resist this?
