VISION and DREAM are a bonded pair and will not be separated.

 

This breathtakingly handsome and matched pair of Dobers arrived at Elijah’s House, having been found as strays!  As you’ve seen me opine more than once, I really just cannot wrap my mind around the idea that dogs such as these either have run off and not been searched for (and found) or having been “dropped.”

I go back to one of my best ever Doberboys some years back who had been dropped, along with his female Dober companion, by a new husband who didn’t want his wife’s dogs.  You know who ought to have been “dropped” in that instance.

As a result of their having been strays and not having been properly cared for before coming to us, both are underweight and have heart worms.  As many of you know, heart worm treatment is both perilous for the dogs and very costly for us (in contrast with preventative treatment, which is pennies by comparison).  Several of our recent arrivals have heart worms, so if you’d like to have a part in securing their future, please consider making a donation toward the additional costs for heart worm treatment.

Apart from the temporary challenges mentioned in the paragraph above, these dogs are perfect in every way.  They are beautiful, well-mannered, intelligent, interactive, and very clearly bonded and well-matched with each other.  Here’s how our volunteers describe them:

    “As former strays both need a little weight gain, but their good looks are evident despite their need for some TLC.  These two are inseparable, and it brings a smile to my face to see them run around and chase each other.  Having been through a lot together, their bond and care for each other is strong.  What is really great about these two is they are eager to meet new people.  Both came right up to me, wagging and jumping on the gate for attention.  There was no apprehension from either dog or a sense of having to protect each other.  Diagnosed with heartworms, these two will be onsite for awhile as they undergo treatment.  I can't wait to see how they blossom with solid meals, a warm bed, and volunteers who care for them.  When these two are ready for adoption, they are definitely going to contribute to a fun and happy household.”

    “These two are such a cute pair.  They have beautiful ear crops too.  They’re both very sweet and definitely love to be together.  They were a little nervous in the tub at first, but once I got the soap on and started scrubbing, they calmed down and seemed to feel better after they got all clean. Whoever adopts these two will be lucky to have such a great pair!”

    “One doesn’t have to look too closely to imagine the life these two pups must have led.  I’m thinking a backyard breeder who got several litters and money out of them, and then decided to dump these two and tossed them aside like yesterday’s leftovers.  Well let me tell you, they tossed away two gems, and I’m happy they landed at DRT!  Now they’ll have a chance for the life they so richly deserve.”

    “These are two of the sweetest, well-mannered Dobies you could hope for.  My first encounter was with both of them standing up against a fence gate as I came into the DRT compound, wagging their short nubs, and waiting to give me gentle kisses.  I later got a chance to sit with them together, and all they wanted was gentle ear rubs and attention.  Neither of them tried to jump up on me as I was sitting on the bench, but both stayed close up against my legs and soaked up all the attention I had to offer.”

    “I didn't get to interact with them much so far, but already I see that they both are very friendly and affectionate.  And on the leash there was no jumping up or excessive pulling.”

    “Dream and Vision are a lovely, even tempered pair.”

    “The first words that came to mind when I saw Vision were ‘lithe and svelte.’  He has a beautiful, sleek, red coat and long legs.  And when he pops his head up over the gate, he has an incredible look of happiness on his face that someone is coming to be with him.”


I’ve loved Dobers for as long as I can recall, but what really brought it home for me was visiting friends on their expansive lawn one summer afternoon when I was a freshman in college.  They had a matched pair of Dobers, one black and the other blue, and observing them together over the course of the afternoon - their natural beauty and stance, their intuitive, graceful, easy interaction with each other, their absolute oneness and attentiveness to their master - it thrilled me and forever fixed in my mind a respect and desire for Dobers of my own, and they’ve been a major part of my life ever since.

If your heart thrills at the thought of having such a pair of Dobers in your life and family, make an appointment to meet them once your application is approved, and come meet and observe them for yourself.  And if you decide to take them home, your heart will know that thrill for many years to come.
