This handsome, extra-large, older Dober came to us from a wonderful home with acres of land and an idyllic life that included a child companion who loved him very much. He was the perfect family dog – loyal, loving, obedient, and protective.  

Unfortunately, in doing his job the best way he knew how, on a couple of occasions he created a little excitement for delivery people who didn't announce their presence to the home owners. The delivery people failed to appreciate the honor in his doing so, and things devolved into a situation where the loving family thought it best, in order to keep receiving deliveries in the future and keep from upsetting any more delivery people, to find a new home for him where his natural and appropriate protectiveness would not be a challenge.

To be clear, this is a totally loving and reliable Dober. He is a dignified-yet-playful gentleman who loves companionship and people (including children) and is good all the way around. Some people just don’t understand the way a dog thinks.

Years ago, a friend on a farm ran into trouble when his German Shepherd bit a man who had entered the back hall of the house rather than waiting at the door. No harm to him – just a tear in the back of his pants. But the man went straight to the sheriff, demanding that action to be taken against the dog. When the sheriff heard where the man had been (in the hall), he told the man the dog had only done his job and refused to take any action. That’s how it’s supposed to be.

Mama Carol says, “This Dobie is really nice - easy going, always has a wagging tail, and greets people easily and comfortably."
 
Volunteer comments:
            “This fellow is a poster boy for Dobermans! He’s handsome and interactive and loves to engage you in a game of jolly ball!” 

  "I LOVE this guy! He’s everything (and more) one thinks of when one thinks “Doberman.”  When we’re together, he constantly keeps me in his sight and comes right to my side when called. He loves to cuddle, and he also he has a goofy side at times, play-bowing and chasing around in the field. I could go on and on, but will say this: if I could have another Doberboy in the house, Tobey would not be available for adoption.”

    “When I first met Tobey, he was in his kennel, barking loudly and somewhat apprehensively at me. I pretended to focus on another dog until he settled a bit, then gently turned my attention more to him. He eventually came close to the gate and sniffed my finger, then settled quietly just back a bit, remaining so even when I stood and moved away. When he saw me shortly thereafter, he barked again.  The next weekend, he spied me from about fifty feet away and ran to the gate to greet me as though I were his long-lost buddy. I petted his head, and he responded by licking my hand. After that all was great and he was very friendly.  I think his initial apprehension was the result of the stress associated with the change of circumstances. The next time I saw him, he was relaxed, and his happier self was readily apparent.”

    “Tobey is a sweet guy once you get him from behind the fence; he has a gruff bark but really is just a teddy bear at heart.”


As you can see, this is an excellent dog who simply offended the wrong people, so to speak, and who just needs a new loving home of the sort he had before (although maybe without access to delivery people!)

If you think your home is a match, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a little time getting to know him. If large, loving, and loyal are what you’re seeking, this may be the one for you.
