"VI" and "RUS" are a bonded pair and will not be placed separately.

 
This older, bonded pair of Dobers were the beloved family members of a fellow who was dying from cancer.  Knowing his demise was pending, he had arranged for a family to take them when he passed.  When that time came, however, the family was unable to take them after all, so his brother drove five hours and picked up the dogs.  But he lives in a condo with a homeowners’ association that doesn’t allow Dobers, so that was not a permanent solution to their housing need.  Thankfully he contacted us, and they have now come to Elijah’s House to await a new home with a loving family.

These are wonderful dogs with sweet and lovable personalities.  They love to stretch out and run in the large fields and to snuggle with their human when they’re inside.  The male is initially a little anxious in the car but easily calms down if you place your hand on him.  The female can be uneasy of they’re separated, which is very common with a bonded pair.

Just so you know, some of their pictures were taken when their coats were wet from rain, but you can still see how good looking they are.  

Volunteer comments:
       “I guess the thing that struck me most about these two guys was just how relaxed and devoid of the normal stress that initially affects many of the Dobes when they first come to DRT. They both acted as if I was one of their normal acquaintances.  No fear and no nervousness.  Tish and I had them on leashes, and we walked them by one of the other Dobes on the patio to see how they would react.  Nothing - no barking, no growling, no pulling to get away - just a quick look at the other dog and a sniff and that was it.  They also had no interest or reaction when we introduced them to Bailey, DRT’s resident security cat.  To top it off, when we took them back to their individual runs, they both stood there completely relaxed as we dried them off with towels because of the light rain.”
 
          " Very nice dogs, mild mannered and loving! Pleasing dispositions."
           
            " Vi and Rus are very energetic, Vi more than Rus. He liked to stay close to us and she                  liked to run and explore. Both like to be petted."           
 

I think you can tell this is a mature, well-adjusted pair of Dobers what will make wonderful companions “right out of the box.”  If you think your home may be a match, make an appointment to meet them once your application is approved, and come meet and greet and spend some time interacting with them.  Be sure you clean out the back of your vehicle if you do; they’ll take up some space on the way home.
