Just an FYI for anyone in our adoption area, Doberman Rescue MN had a purebred litter born last week. One black female, four blue females and three blue males.

Awesome!!! Rescue is gonna make a fortune chargin' premium prices fer them "rare dye-loots"!! ;)

Being serious now, what are the parents' colors?
:D

Mom is black. We think Dad is a blue based on some information we have from the shelter that Mom came from, but we aren't certain. She came from a kill shelter down in Iowa.

I've volunteered to help socialize puppies (read: play with adorable babies!) when they are old enough. Hopefully I get a chance! I'd also really like to see how Shanoa reacts to a male pup. Someday I'd really love to get a well bred puppy from a great breeder, but I don't know if Shanoa would tolerate a puppy. So this might be a good opportunity to get a read on her reactions.

The interesting thing is, it's usually tough to get people to volunteer to foster. We don't have a ton of foster homes, despite having a pretty large number of general volunteers. But as soon as the babies came, EVERYONE wanted to foster. I get it, but it's kind of disappointing, too. I wish we had such a great response to every dog we got a call about, you know?

It is always like that - I'm even guilty of it myself since it is so much easier to mingle a puppy in then adults

I get it. And fostering is hard work. But I still wish some of the eager volunteers would consider trying an adult, too :)

LOL I have and somehow I end up keeping them (Rogan, Frostbite, Pete) I can only stand puppies for a short time so I'm happy to see them go :)

Well Meadow, I am going to foster once Juno is two or if Misha dies (cancer) before then. Meeshie turned 9 today.

I honestly don't have the urge for another puppy. Losta work.
Will the rescue be cropping/docking?

Puppies are SO much harder than adults, seriously (like y'all dont know!). Have you emailed DAN intake? Babies go quick, adoption wise. And they are easy to foster out (ALOT of "foster failures" too:))

Puppies cry. Pee & poo in the house. Tear things up. Chew EVERYTHING (skin included) and you can't get mad at them for it.

Can you also suggest that the puppies get introduced to crates from an early age, Meadow?

Exactly why I foster pups - they also get adopted quickly especially if they are black girls

I am not super involved in that aspect of rescue, since I don't foster. I'm not sure if DRM is cropping/docking. I'm guessing at least docking tails, but I don't know for sure.

No need to contact DAN, as the pups are in the care of Doberman Rescue MN.

I'm guessing they will also crate train, but I'll make the suggestion just in case!

My bad, didn't notice (note: I dunt reed gud) they were in a rescue. Yay! for a decent start in life. There are far far worse things than being a puppy in rescue. That's a whole bunch of blues.

Hi - I am on the Board with a local rescue/hospice organization. I would be interested in a black or blue female or a blue male. I live in PA and our organization works with pilots who fly rescue animals. I would be very interested in taking in a pup. :)

I'm sorry, but DRM does not adopt out of state. I'm certain there are great Doberman rescues in your area that you could check into, though!

From what I was told, they did not crop the ears but did dock the tails. It's hard to adopt out an all natural dobe in the United States.

I might be setting myself up for a lynching here but I'd waaaaaay rather foster dogs that are six months and older. I'm not a huge fan of puppyhood. I like dogs. Now, where's the best place to hide so that I don't get beat up for saying that? ;)
