Hi all, hoping to find a good home for my son's Dobe. She's 4+ yr old black/tan. Ears cropped,tail docked,spayed,shot dates are running out this month.

Currently located on Whidbey Island.

Gretta is a beautiful dog, she's not leash trained. Very active & smart. Sweet personality. Loves other dogs for play & has been pals with a kitten in the past.

Not aggressive, watch dog YES.

Her current environment is just not good for her,she needs more company & room to run. Gretta would do best with a fenced yard,other dogs for companionship & perhaps agility training or work of some kind.

She's been with my son over 2 years, he hates to give her up but has come to realize it's not fair for Gretta to not be able to live up to her potential. She loves water,but doesn't care for being cold.

Really hope someone in this area can help us out! If there's any interest I'll get my son to join & he can post pictures. She's really a very special Dobe!!

Thanks,Pati

Her address wouldn't come up

Yes, I recall her name. However didn't write down her phone #. Her email wouldn't go through. Neither would the guy in Seattle. Maybe it just wasn't my day???

Heck, now I can't even recall how I got her name! Any help appreciated!

Jim Anable? If you couldn't get emails thru to either of them it must be a problem at your end. Jim Anable runs a yahoo group called Blue Dobes. You could contact him thru that.

Hello, I have talked to Ceilidh about your girl, is her name Gretta? She said she has a possible home in Oak Harbor, and some other possibilities farther away. The people in Oak Harbor have had a Doberman before so they are used to the breed, right now they have two Dachshunds, so the Dobe will have to get along with small dogs.

Ceilidh needs a photo of the Doberman and any other details you can give her. Here is her email address, taken directly off the email she sent to me.

<<<<I have some people that have filled out an application form with me they live in Oak Harbor and that isn't too far away from Whidbey in fact it is the north part of the Island. anyway they have had a dobe in the past, they do have grandchildren that come and visit but they also have two little old daschunds and the dobe must get along with those babies If you can sent me a picture of the girl looking for a home OR have the mother contact me direct I will see what I can do.
Anyway, I may have some other people let me see, but I do need a picture and some direct contact

Great news!!

My son is in Oak Harbor all the time, I'll go ahead & provide his email & he can send the pic OK. I'll give him a call right now & tell him what to expect.

Gretta has gotten along just fine with our little mutt, she wants to play & our little gal is too old & disinterested. However, she played very well with our huge new dog (Wolfhound mix). I've never known Gretta to display bad behavior towards other dogs or cats.

A fenced yard is a MUST. And she has not been trained,she's very smart-just needs the proper training.

Thanks so much for your help!

P.S. Might have been my computer, neither of their links worked for me! Same thing is happening today on several sites:eek2:

Here's his address: [email protected]

P.S. Gretta seems to love kids-no matter the age! She's sweet & knows to be "gentle".

no papers btw (i never planned on having to part with her so i didnt even ask for them, and she is spayed).
and her ears do whatever she wants, if something has her attention they do stand straight up.

Gretta update

microbe,I'm a middle person also, have alot more time to devote to the search for a new owner than my son does!

joce-yes, we came here from Chazhound -thank you so much!

Sam Hayne, well this is day 3 of looking for a new home for Gretta! No rush-most important is to find the perfect situation for a very special Dobe!

I don't have a way to post pics of her, I have LOTS of pics I can send through snail mail to anyone truly interested however.

I actually live in Skagit County & am willing to check out possible homes in my area. Pavin & Gretta live in Coupeville.

New owner MUST have time for training,companionship & provide safe,secure environment. Other dogs in household would be great! Gretta is a very friendly gal, super smart & needs constant challenge-agility or work of some kind.

Her circumstances changed due to my son's job. Now she's stuck with a small house,no neighbor dogs to yap with, and a very small fenced yard. She's lonely & bored-not a good situation for any Dobe!!

Gretta is everything you could possibly want in a Dobe!

Please help get the word out & help find her a wonderful home!

Thanks so much-sad grandma to be losing her from my life......:sadcry:

It can be dangerous to place a dog over the internet. There are people who as someone already said are very sick. I have personally witnessed one such over the internet placement of a young Doberman girl wind up with the dog dumped in a pound. Luckily she was found and retrieved and replaced in a good home. But it could have been that she wasn't found in time.

The reason I brought up Ceilidh is that she is a person who does rescue. She hasa the contacts to help look for a home for Gretta. You can ask her for references if you want to, and I know her name is on various rescue lists.

People writing into this message board or any other and saying they want Gretta are unknown quantities. I don't care how nice they sound. This dog has already been passed around in her life I don't know how many times, but your son was not her original owner. She needs to go to a forever home not to be sent to the first person who writes to say they want her. Dogs get passed around and around and around that way, or worse.

This is just a heads up on that.

To gretta's Dad and Grandmom,
I received the following message from Ceilidh this morning. I think I already gave you her email address, so if you are interested in checking into having Gretta placed with the couple in Oak Harbor, please get in touch with Ceildih by email as soon as possible.

good Morning,

My people are very interested in seeing and knowing more about this girl, so get the woman to contact me and I can put them in touch with each other

SHE asked for YOU to email HER. Her email address is posted eithr in this thread of one of the others your mother started. If you need me to post it again I will.

I don't think that Ceilidh even has YOUR email address.

Home for Gretta

Have you emailed Ceilidh? She's great and will find Gretta a good home. I'd call her immediately if I was you.

I got my rescue boy Duncan from her and she's awesome!!

All I can say is, I hope you get her a good home & soon. If I had a way out to Washington, I'd give her a happy home to spend the rest of her days in.
