You know I need another dog like a hole in my head, but (and I know you know this for what you take on with your rescue cases too) but you feel that if you can even make it work for them, that it is worth it. I mean, my dogs are well cared for and loved, but how do you look at those eyes and say, "sorry I don't want to take you in b/c I don't need another dog" when I have the room to love them and take care of them? I'm going to go see them and find out their "due" dates, and if they aren't adopted, then I'm on my way. I think the one in Cleveland is in a no kill, but I know the one in Lorain isn't. (I can't take both obviously)I'd rather take one in that has less of a chance of being adopted by another home.doberkim said:i think you should go get that girl lexus and give her to me
I like that Kim, "Doberslave"... It sure does describe us though, doesn't it? I thought I was pretty savvy in the dog world and over the years had read quite a bit about Dobies. In retrospect though, I had no idea what I was getting into with Chi. She definitely has more personality and affection than any dog we've ever had but she also requires about 10x's more work than any dog we've ever had... I agree that this is so not the dog for everyone and can completely understand why responsible breeders don't make it easy to get one of theirs - if only more would...doberkim said:i agree - i dont think most people have any idea what they are getting into when they get a doberman - you are either a doberslave or not. theres no in between with this breed
