He fit right in!
Meet Cecil! He's a very sweet 8yr old dobergent looking for his forever home. Cecil spent his life chained to a tree in his backyard. Some caring neighbors got his owner to sign him over to them. His vet costs proved to be more than they could handle, so he came to us. Cecil along well with people and dogs.He's very playful with the other dobie in the foster home. He's very much a velcro dobe. Cats are still an unknown but since he's not the steadiest on his feet, they'll likely coexist just fine. Cecil has some numbness in his back left leg. It doesn't bother him, and he's very capable of getting around. Cecil is hypothyroid. His condition is easily, and affordably, treatable. He is trustworthy with free roam and isn't destructive. He does have some separation anxiety that manifests itself in barking/whining. Cecil loves to fetch! **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.**
We adopted Bogey in November of 2016, and already, it’s like he’s always been with us. Within three months, he’s learned dozens of tricks, has incredible recall, and is great with everyone and everything we come across. He’s made best friends with our cat and two other dogs, and adapted quickly to our lives, rules, and routine. While we were told he was a blanket chewer and potential food thief, we’ve not had a single issue regarding these, as Bogey cares so much about pleasing us that a simple, “Nope,” and firm glance is all it takes to get him back on track. He’s learned everything so quickly, it’s hard to believe he was ever a shelter dog prior to Doberman Rescue taking him in! The highlight of our day is taking Bogey to a nearby fenced off-leash trail and watching him run and explore to his heart’s content. He always rubber-bands back to us though, and seems deeply bonded to us despite having joined our family just a few months ago. We love our new addition and look forward to spending many years together!
