What a lovely Doberboy this is. Despite being a chronological senior, his appearance and activity level are those of a much younger dog.  At the same time, he shows the mild-mannered wisdom and maturity his years have provided him – kind of a perfect combination.

He came to us (via a shelter) from a home where he’d lived happily since a pup with kids and other dogs. He got along well with all and was a blessed, indoor, mild-mannered member of the household.  Unfortunately, he was, as the ancient hymn lyric says, “prone to wander.”  The information we received upon intake was that when someone would leave the gate open, he’d ramble off and explore the neighborhood, resulting in his being picked up by animal control.  
 
Now that he’s with us, we see that wasn't the whole story; he's a climber.  In fact, the day of his surgery he cleared our gate in the corral!  So fences in his new home will need to be higher to keep him within his boundaries.  Apparently, it had happened once too often for the family, and they decided to let him go. (I am gobsmacked.) Thus, he now awaits a new home that will take care enough to keep him in the yard going forward.  (We believe his motivation for going over the fence when he's alone in the yard is to try to be with his humans.)

He’s tall and stately and has the Doberman prance down pat. He knows several commands, loves to play with kids, and is an especially nice Dober, well-deserving of a loving home.

While he was unwittingly and repeatedly being let out of the yard, he was also not receiving preventative heart worm medication (necessary for all dogs these days), so he came to us with heart worm. Once again, we must provide that most essential and very expensive treatment to rid his body of those parasitic wretches. (If you are able to donate toward that additional and significant expense, it will be a blessing all around.)

Volunteer comments:
           “Samuel can’t get close enough.  He’ll lie right up against me to be loved on.”

            “It is hard to beat a sweet, senior Doberboy in my book!  Samuel is an absolute delight!  He loves to be showered with affection and is very fond of a good back and butt rub!  I spent time walking him and letting him roam the field with me, and he’s just an all-around great dog!  He walks very well on a leash, and he would follow me from field to field and come when called!"

           “Samuel looks like a pup.  Maybe he and Gomez can wear each other out!”

    “Samuel is a soft-natured, gentle giant of a Dobie.  His goal in life seems to be to please the humans around him.”

    “It’s very important to Samuel to be near people.  He is capable of fence climbing but shows no interest in doing so as long as he has human companionship.  He just doesn’t want to be alone.  And isn’t that why we have Dobies in the first place?”

    “It’s so nice to walk with a Dobie like Samuel; he walks wonderfully well on lead.”

           "The lady who helped with Samuel’s transport said he was a a very sweet dog, and I think he truly is a wonderful character.  I’m glad he is clean and fresh after his bath, as he deserved better treatment! He’ll certainly be a blessing for some fortunate family.”


That last sentence pretty well sums it up – a blessing for a fortunate family.  If you want to be that family, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come see for yourself what a terrific Dober this is.  I’m thinking if you decide to take him home, you’ll be keeping the gate closed.
