Remember French I Class?  I loved studying French and had expected to spend my freshman year at a college in France (didn’t work out - met a girl, yada yada yada).  I remember sitting in French lab with the headphones on doing “récitation” - listening to and repeating back French phrases and words as we worked on pronunciation.  Two of the earliest phrases we learned were “Ma Mere" et "Mon Pere.”  Then there was memorization of the Lord’s Prayer, of which, these many years removed, I only recall the first line en Francais: “Notre Père qui es aux Cieux.”

I can pick my way through reading enough to get the gist of a thing, but with spoken, I can’t begin to keep up.  I’d still like to become conversational in it - guess I’ll just have to keep it on the list.  

In any case, our Doberboy Pere (a nod to Father’s Day, which was around the time he came to us), is a handsome, loving, outstanding fellow who, as you can see by his early pictures, was starved nearly to death for reasons God only knows.

He came to us from a shelter, and other than what we can see about his condition, we know nothing about his back story.  One of our adopters, a former peace officer, was moved to send along this comment upon seeing his pictures:  “He probably escaped from somewhere because he was starving.  I get really upset when I see an animal in that kind of condition.  I know you will have him looking great in no time.”

I tend to go “Billy Jack,” myself, when I see one in this condition.

Despite his deplorable weight (and ear infections, which are being treated and will be cleared up shortly), he’s otherwise healthy and sound.  But the best part is his sweet temperament.  

To say that he is very friendly to new folks and new dogs is an understatement.  He absolutely loves interaction; he’s wonderfully enthusiastic; and he’s surprisingly strong, given his profoundly underweight condition.  (For his size and build, he should weigh at least thirty pounds more than he did on intake.  Mama Carol is aaaallll over it!)

He really is just a lovely fellow despite what mistreatment he experienced in the past.

Volunteer comments:
    “Pere is a dog that your heart just goes out for. Although there isn‘t much background on him, it is pretty clear he has survived a tough early life. Despite the challenges he has faced, he has the makings of an absolute stunner. When he gets some weight on him, he is going to be a total stud! My expectations upon first glance were that he would be weak and fragile, but Pere has a real spirit about him! He pulls on the leash and is actually up for any adventure you put in front of him. The personality he has absolutely amazes me. He is social, loving, and outgoing to people, even though you think he would have no reason to be so friendly and trusting. All this guy needs is some weight to be the perfect companion.”

    “I didn‘t get to spend much time with him, but my first impression is that he wants and likes attention.  He’s very energetic and will love a home with active humans.  He seems very confident and has no problem exploring new things. He needs some training for walking on leash and jumping up, but he seems like a sweet guy.”

    “I met Pere today, what a beautiful Doberman! He wants to be right with you, and he gave another volunteer a large wet kiss right on cheek.  He loves pets under his chin and belly rubs.  And he’s a real gentleman.”


Don’t be put off by his emaciated appearance.  This is one terrific Dober who will come up to proper weight and “wow” everyone he meets with his looks and personality.

If you think this fellow may be a match for your home, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come see for yourself what a great guy he is.  Chances are, you’ll be saying “J’taime” to this wonderful Dober for many years to come.
