Our Big Red Bear
Meet Gus! He's a 6yr old black and tan dobe looking for his furever home. Gus is calm and easy going, with a bit of timidity. He's good with most dogs except overly dominant, pushy males. He does have some leash aggression that will need to be worked on. Due to his timid nature, we're not going to adopt him out to a family with small children. **We do not discuss individual dogs with applicants until completion of the adoption process. Please submit a completed application: http://dobermanrescueco.org/adopt/forms/. We never consider you applying for a particular dog. The more open you are to gender, color and age, the more likely you are to find a dog with us. We want homes that accept that they are rescuing a dog and are willing to work with the dog to make him a good citizen. We will also schedule a home visit. Once approved to adopt from us, we will contact you about suitable dogs and put you in contact with the foster parents. We get dogs into rescue on a regular basis and they are placed with previously approved adopters who have been waiting for their forever dog. It is best not to focus on any specific dog until you have been approved. We welcome your interest in a dog that may steal your heart but please remember that the dogs posted on our site today will most likely go to homes of applicants that applied weeks ago.**
Oso came to live with us about 12 years ago. We were really just supposed to foster him, but our 1st Colorado foster girl whom we had adopted 6 months earlier told us he was a keeper, so we adopted him too. The 2 of them loved to play and acted like puppies, even as they became senior citizens. When we moved up into the mountains, Oso became more protective and often alerted us to the bears and mountain lions before chasing them away from our home. Oso went to the Rainbow Bridge very suddenly a few days ago. Shelby, another beautiful rescue from Dobe Rescue Co continues to cry and look for him, adding to our already substantial grief. He was the most beautiful, gentle, loving red boy we’ve ever been privileged to know & we look forward to seeing him again at the Rainbow Bridge.
