This strikingly handsome young Doberboy came to us from a home with three other male dogs and a female. Not surprisingly, they were fighting.

His former owner, who loves him very much and is loathe to give him up, explained that she has Multiple Sclerosis and had gotten him to train as a replacement for her current, older-and-ready-to-retire service dog.

Unfortunately, his arrival in the pack upset the settled dynamics, and tension developed within the established group. His humans tried everything they could think of to ease his acceptance into the group, including swapping out times for the dogs to be inside and outside and even sleeping in different rooms with the dogs separated, to no avail. In the end, the decision was made to surrender him so he can be placed in a new home where there will be no pack to try to join, and his humans can devote more time to training his active mind to its full potential rather than running interference between the opposing canine factions.

 Even at that, it took a lot to convince her it was indeed in the dog’s best interest for her to surrender him; she clearly cares very deeply for him. The tipping point came when she realized we will be able to place him in a home where he isn’t in competition with the other dogs and can relax and mature into the fabulous dog he will be.

 According to his former mom, he responds to several commands, including “Down;” “Sit;” “Free;” “Touch;” “Look at me;” “Come;” and “Leave it.”

His former owner describes him as being a daddy's boy and good with all the men he met, and so he seems to be after hesitancy on greeting.   So far it’s taking a longer time than expected for him to decide men are okay and to come over to them.  That’s probably related to the especially close relationship he had with his mom in his previous home.  In any case, there’s no reason to think he won’t come around once he has a new dad, if not sooner.

 His former mom has shared this comment for his new owner. Clearly she loves him and hates to see him go:
    “Please know you now have the best Dobie your family could ask for. He is sweet, silly, so smart, playful and handsome with soul piercing eyes. He may no longer be with our family, but he will always have our hearts. Tonight our hearts are breaking, knowing he will no longer be with our family tomorrow at this time, but we know this is just a part in his life's journey and your family is part of it. Please shower him with love and he will definitely return the same if not more to you. Kisses and hugs to you sweet, Huey.”

A couple of our volunteers have weighed in with these comments:
     "Huey is a fun and gentle giant. He immediately befriended me and was ready to play and give love. He wasn't a huge fan of toys, but preferred to run and play chase with me. On his walk he was a little wary of the other dog, but over time a he grew to like her and was ready to play by the end of it. Overall he still has a lot of puppy energy in him and incredibly sweet and affectionate."

     "If looks can kill, be ready! One look at this guy will have you gasping for breath. No kidding; this guy is the complete package. A Dobie of exquisite form and grace. Adjectives fail when trying to describe this young man."

     "Huey is very timid, but he warms up to people once you show him he can trust you (read: "scratch his ears"). He has great manners, does well on a leash and is very gentle. You can tell he has a lot of love to give to the right person." 


And another volunteer adds this admiring and playful comment:
      "This guy feels great under your hand - a firm, well-muscled body and a head wide enough to pet. He’s a good-looking fellow who loves attention - consider his breed to be Doberman with a subheading of ‘pet-hound’." :-)

 If this handsome fellow seems like a fit for your home, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come see for yourself what a great guy he is. There’s no doubt this “Baby” Huey is going to make a wonderful lifetime companion for someone. Maybe it’ll be you.
