This pretty young Dobergirl came to us from a shelter, having been abandoned by her owner.  Possible reasons for this range from being deployed, to moving on to another “breeder” dog, to heart worms.  Whatever the cause, it’s clear it was through no fault of her own that she was left at the mercy of others.  Thankfully, we specialize in mercy.

She is heart-worm positive and will require the very costly treatment to rid her of those killer worms.  (If you are able make a donation toward that significant expense, you will have a part in helping her be fully restored and on the way to a new, happy and healthy life.)  Clearly she’s been bred repeatedly in her short life, but that will no longer be the case since all dogs will have been spayed or neutered when they leave DRT for their new homes.

In her brief time with us so far, we’ve learned that she loves to bury (or hide) her toys.  In the pictures of her holding a toy, she’s looking for a hiding place.  You can almost see it in her eyes!  She even took a big play ball from the office and tried to bury that in the gravel - so cute.  I wonder if she even had toys in her past, given that she was used as a breeder.

We’ve also discovered that she has a previously broken back leg.  Based on radiographs (x-rays) it is apparent her right femur was broken just above the knee.  It is very stable and completely healed, just not as perfectly as a surgeon would have set it.  She plays and runs flawlessly as any young Dobie should.  At a slow walk she has a small catch to her step, but she needs no special attention, medication, or considerations beyond over-the-counter glucosamine supplements.



Despite her less-than-stellar former life, she’s a loving, happy, eager-to-please-and-play Dober.  She’s attentive, intelligent, and interactive - interested in being part of whatever may be going on, even if it’s nothing more than snuggling up close at the moment.  In short, she’s a lovely young girl just longing for a proper home.

Volunteer comments:
       “The first time we met, Palma immediately stood up on the fence to greet me with no reservations as I walked up in her direction. Upon making of her, I was impressed with how soft her coat is. Along with my son and daughter, I went inside the fence to get acquainted with her. I smiled at seeing that her only issue with three new-to-her people entering her territory was to decide which one to kiss first! She is just a really sweet dog. Some dogs bark for attention, but Palma just gives you the sad face look if you walk by without greeting her. It is almost irresistible! I can't wait to see her again this weekend. She will definitely be one of my favorites as she awaits her forever home.”

“I spent some time with Palma this past weekend.  She is such a sweet girl and was just happy to gaze up at me while I petted her.  I’d never met her before, but you would think I was her favorite human from how content she looked sitting at my feet while I made of her.  Palma would be the perfect dog for someone who wants a lap dog that is also capable of barking loudly enough to scare away unwanted guests!”


If this wonderful Dobergirl seems like a fit for you family, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and just see if you can resist her charm.  I’m guessing you won’t stand a chance!
