This gentle giant of a Doberboy came to us from a shelter where he had been dumped by his owners when they moved.  With the help of our ever-faithful Rescue Angels, he made his way to DRT, where he awaits a new, permanent home.

He’s a total sweetheart who, despite his size and commanding presence is so gentle and desirous of certainty following the recent changes in his life, that initially he would hang on to our legs, almost "begging" us not to leave him alone in a field.  After a few days, he has relaxed and is very easygoing, moving confidently and happily among our volunteers and around the grounds.  And being a “new kid” at Elijah’s House, the others initially barked at him, but he just ignored them and wasn’t put off at all.
 
He could afford to drop a few pounds, but he’s large and solid rather than fat, as his pictures and freedom of movement attest.  He loves to play with tennis balls, and if he sees someone playing with another Dobe in a field across from him, he’ll eagerly cry and whine until someone comes to play ball with him.  It seems clear that he‘s the kind of Dober that will adapt to any situation he finds himself in when he goes to a new home.

Volunteer comments:
    “Rush is a perfect Doberman -  muscular, perfect ears, a great black, shiny coat - a real 118lb. love bug.  If you look up Doberman in the dictionary, you would see his picture!  He wants to be beside you, getting his pets, but all the while is very alert to what is going on.  As much as I’d would love for him to stay here at the rescue, he won’t last long.”

    “Rush is very affectionate and easygoing, although on leash with me he pulled hard.  (We’re working on that.)  He loved running in the field; it was as though he was saying “Woo hoo!  I‘m free.”  He‘s a big boy but very gentle, especially when he’s asking to be petted.”

    “Every so often DRT gets a gentle giant to stay with us for a bit.  Rush definitely fits that definition.  He’s just a big teddy bear - friendly and sweet to go along with his good looks.  He really is quite the catch.  I spent some time with him this weekend and took him for a test drive (a walk). He is good with allowing a collar to be put on, and given his size, he is not a strong puller (See, progress!).  He is excited when he gets your attention and just wants inclusion in family activities.  He isn‘t like some that will make themselves the focal point of an activity.  My sense is that he would be content hanging out watching the action.”

    “If you want a fantastic, loyal companion, a dog who loves to play fetch with his ball and loves to cuddle with his family, a real Velcro Dober, then Rush is the dog for you!  He is 118lbs of muscle; his ears are perfect; he has a beautiful, shiny, black coat  and a great tail crop.  He learns commands easily and wants to please.  He is a great Doberman and will not be here long.”

    “Rush is a gentle giant!  I was especially struck by how happy he is.  Most of the dogs are grateful to be given attention while at the rescue, but it‘s easy to see they are longing for their forever home and may hold back a bit.  Not the case with Rush - he seems to be lit from within.  Although his size may be intimidating, Rush is a lighthearted, jovial guy who you‘ll be able to take anywhere, and he‘ll have loads of fun!  It’s impossible not to fall in love with Rush!”


Nothing needs to be added to those enthusiastic descriptions.  If you think Rush may be the dog for your family, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved and come prepared to take him home.  Nothing less will do once you’ve met him, I’m sure.
