Wowser; I think this is the largest Dober I’ve ever seen.  He came to us from a formerly-enlisted Marine who has been trying to manage life with myriad challenges including divorce, single-parenting, and physical/mental health issues.  Something had to give, and finding a home for the dog was a step toward being able to focus on the core needs.

Clearly the owner had tried to make up for his lack of time to spend with and exercise the dog by overfeeding him, with the result that he will need to lose a significant amount of bulk over the next few months to bring him back to a more appropriate and healthy weight.

Size notwithstanding, this is a true gentle giant with a nice personality.  While being a bit tentative when meeting, he warms up to strangers quickly and has a generally quiet and peaceful demeanor.  And, despite his bulk, he gets into and out of the big SUV without an issue.  He loves to go on outings and is quiet in the car.

Another point for consideration is that if you have an exercise regimen or would like to start one, he’s the perfect companion for that, too.  Given his gentle manner and need to lose some weight, you could walk or jog together.  Plus there’s the safety factor - hard to think anyone would give you a hard time with him by your side!

Already he’s taken a particular liking to one of our new volunteers, and clearly the feeling is mutual.  Here’s what Kevin has to say:

    “Turk is a big teddy bear - quick to accept newcomers as friends and just wanting to be spoiled with attention.  It was difficult taking pictures of him because once we got him to pose, he would walk towards us for some love!  He just couldn’t understand why we kept trying to walk away from him.  Turk is a standout companion in a breed known as Velcro dogs.  He is a laid back, well behaved, gentle giant that the right owners will want to take with them everywhere!”

That pretty well covers it.  If you think this oversized cuddle bug is a match for your home, make an appointment to meet him and spend some time with him.  Just be aware he may become an additional appendage if you do!
