New member: Dimity Wackadoodle

Hello, everyone. My wife Annie and I own Dimity, a 6-month old red female dobie; we've had her since she was a 9-week old puppy. We love her. In addition to all the vaccinations, she's been through a lot in her short life--coccidia, worms, urinary tract infection, ear infection, partial toe amputation (left rear paw)--and hopefully that will be it for a while.
We didn't know what we were doing when we purchased her, didn't know what questions to ask, what to check for, or how to assess a kennel for professionalism. The worms, coccidia, and urinary tract infection were detected by the vet two days after we brought her home--all of which were treated immediately. The partial toe amputation was peformed about one month ago by an orthopedic vet, after her toe failed to respond to medication and therapy over a period of three months. The vet believes that the toe was traumatized somehow.
As always, she is in great spirits, especially now that she doesn't have to wear the dreaded elizabethan collar and her paw has healed.
We decided to retain the natural ears, as we knew early on that toe surgery was possible, and we didn't want to put her through too much. So, she's a beautiful, floppy-eared red dobe, affectionately known as Dimity Wackadoodle; we call her Dimity when she behaves like the elegant Doberman that she is and call her Dimity Wackadoodle when she acts goofy (about 50% of the time).
This is a wonderful site. Annie and I have clicked on all the links.
We'll add pictures soon.

Welcome to the forum! We all very much look forward to pics! I'm sorry she lost a toe but am happy you have a competent vet to treat her... I actually have a funny lost toe story from when I was a groomer, but won't bore you with it now :-)
7 month old Chihiro and I welcome you :-)

Welcome, and hope all is well from here on in. May I ask you who the breeder was or what town, province, or state. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to ask that on this forum, I am a relatively neubie to. I just look at it being helpful to someone else not to have to endure the trials that you have had because of a breeders lack of ......... I am not taking away the love you have for your new pup. It is breeders like this one that makes all these promises and all is good till the cheque clears and then they never call back or follow up on there obvious neglectful health issues of the animals they are selling ill. Thank you

Hello and welcome to this board! I am sorry to hear about Dimity's early trials that she has gone through. But she sounds like a typical dog, always bounces back to a loveable creature in time.

I have a 2 year old black female who is cropped and flopped! You can see her in my sig below.

Again welcome aboard.

Come see us at: Gracie's Dogster Page!
Come see us at: Cubby's Catster Page!

My mind is only 98% here some times!

Welcome to the greatest forum! I hope that you will find information, support and a bunch of doberman nuts here. How sad that your baby had to go through so much so early in life, but it sounds like she is in a loving and happy home. Can't wait to see the photos! We are the proud owners of 4 dobermans.
PS. Thank you for introductioning yourself.. I see that a lot of our new members are not doing that. We all enjoy hearing about you and your dobermans.

A warm welcome to the forum from myself and my dobe pack(all girls one black and two browns (reds)here in Birmingham.
sorry to hear about Dimity's problems but i'm sure she will be ok with such a responsible owner, and you will have all the love you give her returned a thousand times over.

Hi Forager, Annie and Dimity! Poor pup has been through a lot already, hasnt she? Glad to hear that she is strong enough to get over it and be a happy, goofy pup now! I have a 3 yr old female, Darmok, and a 2 yr old female, Sasha, both blk/rst and they still have their goofy days...especially Sasha! My sister in law has a black male, red male, red female and fawn female, and her son has a red male. When we all get together for family outings etc, it's DobieWorld!! So much fun!! Welcome to the site.
