This handsome Doberteen was rescued by a lady when she found him abandoned and lost in the woods where he'd apparently been for about two months.  He was in deplorable condition and underweight to the point of being skeletal.  As she was nursing him back to health (you see how good he looks now!), it became apparent that he may have neurological challenges as revealed occasionally by seizures, circling to the right, and possible limited vision in his right eye.   That having been said, he hasn't had a seizure in two weeks, so good food, care from people who understand Dobers, and corrections to his prior medical prescription treatments are having a positive effect.


Those of you who recall Dagny are aware that at times dogs can have various complicating factors and yet live full, happy, pain-free lives.   Because of his challenges, Dagny was a dog who was not likely to have been adopted.  Instead, he stayed with Mama Carol and brought incredible joy to all of us who knew and spent time with him.  His recent passing hit us all hard because of his tremendous spirit and adaptability as he took his disabilities in stride and enjoyed life to the fullest.

This fellow is far less challenged than Dagny was, but his neurological foibles will probably manifest occasionally throughout his life.  These present no harm to him or anyone else; they simply make him a loving Dober in need of an understanding home.  This is a healthy, handsome, happy dog, and he’ll make a wonderful companion for many years to come.
 
Despite his significant and essential weight gain since being rescued, he’s still a small fellow who will benefit from regular exercise to build up his muscle tone again.  Toward that end he loves to run, play, roughhouse, and play tug-of-war with other smaller or bigger Dobers.  He also loves stuffed toys and shakes them as most Dobies do.  He has a very sweet disposition, and we see his delightful personality coming out more and more each day.

Volunteer comments:
    “Rolo seems like a really sweet boy.  He likes to run play and just enjoys life. His neurological issues don't seem to bother him at all.”

    “Rolo lives in the moment.  When I say that, I mean he adapts quickly and fully to what is going on around him.  When he gets the opportunity to play with another dog, he goes all out and has as much fun as he can.  When it’s time to stop playing and go back inside, he shifts gears and appears to be just as happy.  Initially he seems a bit shy (not timid); he just wants to get to know you first.  I’d look forward to seeing more of his personality, but as sweet and good-natured as he was on our first meeting, I bet he finds a forever home pretty quickly!”

    “Rolo may be a special-needs Dober, but he is special in other ways as well.  He’s a beautiful red Dobie who is very sweet with people he trusts.  He is a little shy at first but really seems to be coming out of his shell with his rescue family.  Rolo is also a quiet Dober whom I have yet to hear bark.  He doesn't seem to have any interest in being an "alpha dog," but just wants to be a part of a loving family.  He gets along well with the rescue cat and another rescue Dobie, so he will likely be an easy one to walk on a leash and when the doorbell unexpectedly rings.  If you have the time and patience to work with him, he will give back ten-fold with love and affection.”
     
         "Colorado is a mellow, young dobie who will be a wonderful family addition! He is a bit reticent at first, but trusting and compliant at the same time. I took him out to play with a young female and they had great fun together. He would get along well with other pets and fit in easily with a loving, patient family. Given his background, he is really doing well. He will definitely pull at your heartstrings!

A family with big hearts and a modest measure of patience is what this fellow needs.  If you think your home may be a fit, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend some time observing and interacting with him.  He’s stolen our hearts in his short time with us; he’ll likely steal yours too.
