Yesterday (Memorial Day) I participated in the annual “Taps Across America” by sounding “Taps” at 3:00pm, along with many thousands of others across the country. In keeping with the theme, we also have named several of the dogs that have come to us around Memorial Day with names that are in some way related to the military. This Doberboy is one.

This slender blue boy came to us in somewhat of an unusual way.  A request had come to take him, with the explanation that he was crated a lot and also did not get along with the other male dog in the home.  Unfortunately, we were full up and couldn’t take him in at the moment.

Unknown to us, his owner then apparently did the next best thing and surrendered him to a shelter. A few weeks later, the shelter contacted us and asked if we could help with this blue Doberman who was very friendly and had been an owner surrender because he killed chickens!  When we compared photos and noted the same geographic area, it was clear this was the same dog.

The folks at the shelter said he showed no sign of having an attitude with other dogs, so a Rescue Angel there (may their tribe increase) arranged transport to DRT, and now we have this sweet Doberboy with us as he awaits a new home.

As you can see from his pictures, he‘s quite thin, but he’s in good health and hasn‘t given us a bit of a problem.  He rides well, gets in and out of the SUV easily, and his vet exam was accomplished with ease.  He did have horrible yeast and bacterial infections in both of his ears, which is very painful.  That’s being treated and will be cleared up shortly.  And it may also give some indication as to why he was having a hard time in his former home.

So far we‘ve discovered that he knows “Sit” and “Paw,” and he respects a four foot fence.

Volunteer comments:
    “The pictures of this handsome Dober don’t do justice to the fellow I met briefly today.  He looks almost sad, and the guy I met seemed much happier to me.  Maybe a few more days at DRT will bring out the smile in this sweet boy.”

   "Just a really sweet dog.  He loves attention and it is cute to see him on his best behavior when you pet him...as if this will make you pet him longer!  He has beautiful coloring and when he gets a little weight put on, he is going to be a super looking dobe.  Despite his good looks, it is his temperament that is his best attribute.  He is outgoing but quiet, well-mannered and mature.  I envision Rank as the perfect riding companion in your vehicle...quiet but attentive and loving the sights and spending time with his human BFF.  Obviously, I have no idea who the lucky family will be that adopts Rank but I do know one thing....they will definitely be LUCKY to have him!"

    "My first time volunteering at Doberman rescue, I had the pleasure of meeting Rank, a small blue doberman, new to the program. He was a joy!  He was very friendly, would run and play and then come back to have his chin rubbed. Was good on lead and listened to your commands. A real joy."

Often it takes a few days for dogs to figure out what the new, even temporary, normal is.  Until that happens, they can be somewhat adrift.  This fellow is no exception.  He’s sweet, gentle, agreeable, and responsive, but he’s not quite sure what is expected just yet.

No doubt the best thing will be when he’s in a new forever home with a loving family where he learns and becomes part of the regular routine.  If you think your home may be the one for this dear boy, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time observing and interacting with him.  He’ll likely be in for a promotion if you do.
