This large, gentle, quietly happy Doberboy came to us through the courtesy of Rescue Angels.  We’ve been blessed many times by the assistance of friends of Dobermans and DRT who, finding out about a Dober in need, step in to help see that it makes its way safely to Elijah’s House.  To our Rescue Angels, we are deeply grateful.

In his transition, he was boarded overnight, and kennel owner shared this brief observation:  “He seems super sweet.  I went back, and he was just curled up on his blanket.”

Apparently his former owner had an unexpected appointment with the authorities and was going to be detained for some time.  Thankfully a house mate reached out to us in this time of need, and he’s now comfortably ensconced with us as he awaits a new home.  According to the house mate, he’s a well-loved and spoiled boy who even was allowed to sleep on the bed.  Many of our Dober owners favor their dogs the same way, but of course it’s not required!  He also was loose in the home and could come and go through a doggy door (must have been a big one) to the outside as he pleased.

In his time with us so far, we see that he is fine with our resident feline - basically ignoring it after a sniff or two.  So far he also paces in large circles and doesn’t bark at all.  And he seems eager to be outside, unhesitatingly darting out the door if given the opportunity.  I suspect these behaviors are indicative of the uncertainty of his abrupt change in circumstances as he waits to see what the new normal will be.  There’s every good reason to think they’ll subside as he gains confidence in a new home and is loved by a new family.

He’s apparently never had a leash or collar on, but he will come over to be made of and a leash can be put on him then.  Again, it seems his previous exposure to other people and circumstances is very limited, and he’s “feeling” his way along to see what is expected and accepted.  No doubt gentle, loving guidance and care will help him blossom once again.

Volunteer comments:
    “When I first met Tribute, I’d been told he was a bit shy.  He was indeed, but the initial shyness began to wear off as I made of him and he leaned in to me for a good ear rub.  Before long, I was rewarded with a few gentle kisses.  He appeared to be comfortable around the other volunteers, too, and I think his “shyness” might be a temporary reaction to his new environment.  I later had the opportunity to introduce him to one of the other new Dobers, and he was both at ease and a perfect gentleman as we walked both dogs around the grounds.”

    “Tribute is a gentle giant if there ever was one.  He is a large Dober with a thick build. He was a little timid upon my introduction to him but very gentle in his approach.  Tribute is a sensitive guy who has no intention of being the alpha dog.  My sense is that his personality is such that he wants to be dependent upon his family and will show tremendous love and loyalty to the home that gives him the inclusion and acceptance he craves.  If given the chance, he’ll be YOUR happy hundred-pound lap dog!”


If you like large, quietly loving, cuddle bug Dobers, this may be the one for you.  Make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time observing and getting to know him.  Don’t be put off is he seems a bit shy or hesitant; he’s just waiting to see what is to be.  Once you get him home and he knows the new routine, be ready to be smothered with the weight of his love as he pays tribute to you for years to come
