DADDIE & SADA ARE A BONDED PAIR AND WILL NOT BE SEPARATED

This loving and beautiful Dober twosome is truly inseparable.  They came to us from an owner who recently had several surgeries and could no longer give them proper care.  That fact was reflected in their condition on arrival - fleas, dental needs, and heart worms.  They also needed to be neutered and spayed.  Thankfully all their needs have been treated, and they're fit and ready for a new home at this time.
 
We realize that with Daddie being an older dog, some of you may be hesitant to adopt these two.  But think about it.  She's years younger and will be with you past the time of his eventual demise some years from now.  When that time comes, it will be a comfort to both you and Sada to still be bonded with each other.  Besides, they're both healthy and happy and joyful and active, and nothing could be more compassionate than to give them a loving, home together for several years yet.  We hope you can see them as we do, a wonderful pair of dogs who will be a blessing to any home and family whose hearts are big enough for them both.
 
They are very bonded and are best of friends, so they must be placed together.  As is often the case with a male-female pair, she is the boss.  She's also usually the one who collects all the toys.  Daddie knows to defer, and if he doesn't, a smart snap from her reminds him who's in charge! 
 
I can tell you from my own time with them, they are perfectly sweet and gentle.  Upon seeing me the first time, they immediately came straight to me to be made of.  They are indeed total love bugs, happy and easygoing.

Our volunteers also seem to be quite smitten with them.  Here are some of their comments:

     "Today I met Sada and Daddie and I REALLY like them. Sada kept bringing me a toy, wanting to me to play with her. But she was gentle, not pushy, about it. Daddie walked up to me as I sat on the floor, sat in front of me and gently put one paw on my shoulder while I was petting him.  Carol suggested that this meant he wanted his chest scratched and she was right.  He Loved having his chest scratched!  These two are a matched pair both visually and emotionally.  Having these two would not be double the work because they move like they’re dancing as one." 

     "Their temperaments and personalities couldn't be any calmer or sweeter.  They both get into the car on their own and love to go for rides.  They listen to their humans and follow each other around.”

     "Daddie was nice and appreciated getting affection and being petted, but he was so interested in sniffing and exploring, it was hard for him to stop long enough to be made of!  He seems like a nice boy, and he doesn't jump up or pull on the leash too hard."

     "Daddie is an absolute gentleman!  He is sweet, attentive, and full of personality and love!  He keeps a close eye on Sada, and he's appreciative of any and all attention that you are willing to give him, which in my case is a lot."
 
     "What a sweet pea we have here!  Sada has a precious face and even more adorable demeanor.  She is gentle and loving, and you really just want to give her a big squeeze!  She and Daddie are truly a winning pair!"
 
      "Sada and Daddie will be double blessings!  They come and lay their heads in your lap and just want your loving attention!"
 
      "If you have room for two Dobermans, you will be richly rewarded with these two...both loving and affectionate!  Double the pleasure, double the fun, and double the love.  I was working inside a run and Sada had been following me and getting love pats, but when I was inside the run (and she couldn't get close to me), she leaned up against the fence to get as close to me as she possibly could.  Lovely, lovely dogs."

 
Here is a comment from a DRT adopter who is owned by Liebe and Galon, another senior pair of Dobermans:
 
    "I've just looked at Sada and Daddie on the DRT web page.  You know how I love those red Dobes.  If all Doberman lovers knew the joy of having a pair, especially a very bonded pair, you would have people knocking down your door to get them.  Dobermans are an extra special breed of dog, but a pair of Dobermans is a gift from God above.  I truly believe that I could convince anyone of that fact."

This is from DRT adopters who visited recently and now are the proud parents of Sagan:       

      "We had the opportunity to visit with Sada and Daddie.  They are such a loving pair and their personalities are awesome. They immediately came to us showing the love and devotion Dobermans have, wanting us to pet them, laying their heads in our laps and nudging our hands for petting and love.  They showed their love for us without hesitation.  They are a special pair who would enhance the lives of anyone who adopts them."

Occasionally we have so many Dobers at Elijah’s House, there’s not room for them all.  Such is the case at the moment.  Thankfully one of our volunteer families has graciously taken Sada and Daddie home to foster them until space opens up at DRT again.  They are delighted to have them at their home and couldn’t resist sharing their thoughts regarding this lovely pair:

    They did so well last night!  Took a little while for them to settle down because they were very excited, but we expected that!  Daddie really shocked us last night and this morning - he has pulled a Tuesday (Tuesday is Mama Carol’s 11-yr-old, still-thinks-she’s-a-pup Dober) and is showing that he is actually full of energy - it’s so cute!  Here are a few things that we noticed with each pup: 

-          Sada

o   Definitely the ring leader!  Daddie kind of follows her around, and she tells him what to do!

o   She loves to follow me around the house with her stuffed toy in her mouth.  When I was drying my hair and getting ready this morning, she would come in and out to check on me. She is such a little mama!

o   Can be a little possessive of her toys around Daddie.  She did growl at him a few times, but he was just like “whatever” and didn’t bother her!

-          Daddie

o   Way more energy than we thought he had, which was fun to watch!

o   Bathroom stalker - every time one of us goes to the bathroom, he is right in there with us!  He’s also a toilet bowl drinker!  My husband learned quickly the importance of closing the toilet lid!

o   Loves to watch you eat!  Sits down right next to you and watches you eat, just waiting for you to drop the smallest crumb.

o   Velcro Dobie - he just wants to be rubbed and be by your side as much as possible! 

They both jumped right up on the couch and made themselves at home, so they are 100% used to being indoor dogs, and they love it!  They play very well together in the back yard, and they enjoy running in wide open spaces.  They played a game of chase for about 10 minutes this morning, which consisted of Sada running around some landscaping we have in the center of the yard, and Daddie trying his darndest to keep up with her!  It was adorable!  Also, they travel extremely well in the car.  They will both jump up in the car, but just keep an eye on Daddie because he has a little more difficulty getting those back legs up all the way.

They really function very well and easily together in the house, so I think that helps a lot for anyone who has reservations about adopting two.  And had I known that all I had to do was let a dog drink out of the toilet for my husband to put the stupid seat down, I would’ve arranged that a long time ago!

 
If two great Doberkids are what you're seeking, make an appointment to meet them once your application is approved, and come see for yourself what a wonderful pair they are.
