This handsome senior Dober's appearance belies his age.  He really looks terrific and is doing very well, considering what we know of him.

He came to us through the loving efforts of Rescue Angels who saved him from being euthanized at a shelter.  He had been found as a stray, and we’re guessing he had been dumped due to his having a large tumor in the "ventral abdomen" area and also having reduced sight.  (The vet believes it is Retinal Dystrophy.)

I don’t know about you, but as I age, there are certain things that don’t work the way they used to (hold your laughter).  That having been said, my mind is still clear, my sense of humor remains intact, and I am thought of by many as an interesting and valued person to have around.

The same can be said for senior dogs.  Dandee is a gentle, loving, agreeable fellow who gets along fine and loves to be out on the grass or exploring the adjoining woodsy area.  He has a very sweet and people-pleasing disposition and walks beautifully on a leash.  He even gets along well with cats and other dogs.

As for the tumor, the medical report states that "This is a benign hepatoid gland tumor," and "excision is expected to be curative."  That's medspeak for "Tumor removed; problem solved."
 
Not surprisingly, he is heart-worm positive and is being treated for that.  If you’re a regular reader of our site, you’ve learned that heart worm treatment is very expensive, adding hundreds of dollars to the regular costs associated with caring for our temporary residents.   If you are able, we will greatly appreciate any donation you may be moved to provide towards the high cost of heart worm treatment, and thank you in advance for having a part in securing a worm-free future for this fellow as we prepare him for his new home.

Volunteer comments:
    “In my brief meeting with Dandee, he was very friendly and relaxed.  He appears to have limited vision but that doesn’t seem to deter him and he responds well to your voice.”
 
    "Dandee is quite simply the sweetest old guy you could imagine!  He is so gentle, and he loves any and all affection and love you are willing to give him.  When he’s not happily roaming one of the fields, he seems content resting and being somewhere comfortable.  He also has those eyes that are so loving and grateful! He’s truly a gem!"
 
    “Dandee is a senior male Dobe that needs some extra TLC due to some late-stage vision problems.  Despite his limitations, he is just about the sweetest Dobe to come through this place in a long time (and we have had a bunch of super sweet Dobes!).  He has a very low maintenance personality and is just happy to get attention and hang out.  Dandee is gonna be the type of dog that is patient and content just being at your feet when watching TV, reading a book, or working on your computer.  Even though he might be coming down the other side of the mountain, he can definitely still capture your heart.”
 
Most of us naturally want a young dog that will be with us for many years.  That’s certainly understandable, but the truth is, old dogs need love too, and this is one who will be a profoundly grateful and loving companion in the years he has remaining.  I can’t think of anything better than that this fellow would go home with a family that can give him the love and nurture he so clearly deserves (and that was clearly lacking in his past).
 
If your hearts are big enough to love a dog for a few years, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time with this fellow.  You won’t regret it, if you do
