Hi guys. Great news. We are the proud parents of a beautiful 5 year old dober boy! His name is Apollo and he needs some more meat on his bones, but he is just a love! He could not be any sweeter.

His last family was going to put him down because he didn't respect the invisible fence (apparently he feels that cats could very well be a doberman food group). God forbit they should try to train him.

He is not really trained, will sit and will come when called, but that's about it. So we'll be off to school together soon. had to share the good news with you all.

gotta go play with the boy.

Oh that's AWESOME! Congrats on the new doberboy. He's a beauty for sure :)

Can't believe someone would put an animal down for such a dumb reason :( that's so sad. I'm really glad you were able to take him. I'm sure with a bit of school he'll be a great listener :D

Congrats! Being 5 yrs old already may be in your favor---he's already gone through the puppy stage and may be ready to pay attention and take his schooling seriously. Cant wail to hear updates on his progress. You're a good person to rescue such a beautiful boy!

Way to go, CodysMom!
What a good-looking Dobie.
I think all he needed was a good home to be a good dog.

He is really great - tho I think he may be coming down with a case of SRD (Spoiled Rotten Dobe).

He doesn't know how to play, lousey on a leash, but impeccable house manners. If you try to take his collar he absolutely cringes. I think that the bastards who had him before would only let out in when neccessary and then just ignored him. In one way, I'm kinda glad I don't know all the details, I just get madder and madder that anyone would treat a dobe that way.

He does do the funniest thing when he drinks his water tho. He rests his nose on the rim of the bowl and keeps it there while he is drinking. it is hilarious. I will try to get a picture to post.

How can people be so mean to animals? I just don't get it. Why?
I don't get it either :( So sad. Sounds like he's a GREAT dog. I don't know why anyone would even want to spend the money to take something they aren't fully interested in! But I'm so glad he's in a better place now :) Can't wait to see some more pictures of the precious lil guy (or well big hehe)
