Here’s a remarkable example of an outstanding, extra-large, senior Dober.  Here’s Carol’s initial description of her: “BEAUTIFUL Dobie at 100 lbs. Solid muscle.”  A quick look through her pictures will confirm this.  

She came to us because her senior owner had passed unexpectedly.  Knowing how he had loved her (he’d had her since a pup), his girlfriend tried to keep her.  But she is also a senior (with a Chihuahua and a cat), and between trying to keep peace among the animals and handle such a large dog, it was more than she could manage.  

Often, when a new and in this case especially large dog is introduced into an established household, the other pets take exception.  Large dogs can find small dogs to be annoying as well, so the woman was having to keep them in separate rooms for eating and sleeping, and it was just too complicated.  Now she’s with us for a bit as we look for the new home and family where she’ll be loved and cared for as before.

In her former home, she had free roam of a fenced yard when out and of the house when inside.  It appears there was no need to walk her on a leash, and we’ve discovered she’s an eager (and strong) handful at this point when trying to do so.  We’ll make some progress with her in that regard while she’s with us, but her new owner will want to be mindful of this (given her size) and continue to work with her once she’s settled in her new home.

She obeys sit and stay commands, and she loves to run outdoors.  She is used to getting her snacks, and will dance around when she knows she hasn't gotten them.  She is not a barker unless someone comes to the house. (Good dog.)  She’ll also speak when she knows it is time to be fed or time for her treats.

Having been the well-loved child of her only owner all her life to this point, not surprisingly, she seems to be a little uncertain here at Elijah's House.  She readily interacts with others and is quite friendly, but doesn’t seek out affection yet.  This is no doubt due to the recent upheaval in her life and will certainly improve once she knows the new plan, so to speak.

That having been said, get this: she likes to jump up on your lap if you're sitting on the couch or in the recliner - she’s a big lap dog!  (Shaking my head and smiling as I write this - every Dober I’ve ever known was a lap dog - they have no concept of their size and just want to be loved.)

If you think your home may be a match for this lovely senior, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come get to know her a bit.  She’s an oversized lover with a heart to match, just waiting for someone to fill the hole left by the loss of her former owner.  Maybe you’ll be the one.
