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.**
We adopted Leo (formerly Romper) just over a year ago and fell in love. He’s grown from a 30lb lanky 5 month old puppy to a 75lb teenager. He sticks to us like Velcro, never leaving our sides and has been very patient with our grumpy senior Beagle mix. He loves to go on walks and is a a favorite at the dog park and dogie daycare– everyone knows his name! We can’t imagine our lives without those big brown eyes and are so thankful we were lucky enough to become his forever home!
