New Profile 2019:

This pretty little Dobergirl has come back to us after being with a family for nearly three years.  She’s a special-needs Dober in that she occasionally experiences seizures and is on medication for that.  Apparently, they weren’t regulating the medicine properly and also seemed fearful that she would somehow be harmed during a seizure or experience other complications, so they returned her to us. 

Having had an epileptic Doberman for fourteen years, I can tell you it was not a problem in my case.  He would indeed seize occasionally, but it never caused him or anything else any harm, and he lived a full and happy life and was an excellent companion. 

I’m not surprised that she is a bit timid, and I do believe she’ll need to be with a family that can understand her needs.  But with properly-regulated medication, she should continue to make an excellent companion for many years to come. 

Comments from her former owner:
            “In our experience, she’s not social around strange dogs. She does love our Beagle though, and they get along fine.  She is a lap dog who totally loves attention.  She can be mildly reactive to certain things such as unusual noises or someone wearing a hat or sunglasses, but she warms up well to most people.  She loves to run and play outside, and while she loves to rawhides, etc., she’s never chewed furniture, shoes, etc."

Volunteer comments:
            “Happy is a beautiful, petite girl who needs a home where she will have a caring and understanding owner.  She is initially a bit shy, and it takes some patience and a gentle voice to get her to come close.  That having been said, I got her to come close enough to let me rub her head three or four times in the brief time I got to sit with her in the corral.  Then there would be a noise or another dog that barked, and she’d move away to see what was going on.  Happy is not just her name, this is what this beautiful girl deserves to be!” 

If your heart is large enough for a lovely Dober with a mild complication, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved and come visit with her for a while.  You’re bound to be drawn to her if you do.

 

Original Profile 2017:

Perhaps you've always wanted a Doberman, but they are a little large for you. If that's the case, here's one for you.

This beautiful, petite little Dobergirl, weighing only 48 lbs., came to us from a loving home with an older couple that began experiencing major health issues and could no longer care for her.

You can see from her pictures that she's a perfectly-formed and proportioned little girl with beautifully-cropped years. She's feeling a little confused by the recent change in her life, but she has a gentle, agreeable, loving disposition, and she just wants to be home again with a family that loves and cares for her.

She plays most gently with our resident special-needs Dober, Dagny, and he’s very excited to have someone more his size to play with.  She is also gentle with other little dogs.

One of our volunteers says this about her: “When I think of ways to describe Happy, I think of two words: petite and sweet!  She is such a little doll, and once she warms up to you, which happens quickly, she truly enjoys all of the love and affection you can offer.”

So petite and perfect-in-every-way is what you’re looking for, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and see for yourself what a little Doberdoll she is.  I believe if you decide to take her home, “happy” is only the beginning of what you will experience with her in the years ahead.
