This slender, attractive, young Doberboy came to us from a shelter, where he had been surrendered because his family was moving and could not take him with them.   He lived outside at his former home, and as you can see from his pictures, he has some friction-stretched nipples, probably the result of lying on cement or a wood pallet, etc.  He‘s completely housebroken and very neat inside, despite having been kept outside most of his life.

While that’s a minor thing, the heart worms he was infected with when he came in were not.  If you’re a regular reader of our site, you know heart worms slowly kill the host animal.  Thankfully, there’s an effective treatment, but it is somewhat risky and very costly.  He’ll be heart-worm free and healthy when he leaves Elijah’s House, all the same, because we always go to the expense of seeing the worms are eradicated.  Even if you can’t adopt him, if you are moved to contribute to the additional cost of this treatment, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you had a part in saving the life of this dear fellow.


To the positive side, he’s a handsome and easygoing fellow with a very sweet and laid-back temperament, and he gets along well with other dogs.  He’s alert, interested, and engaged.  Given the opportunity, he loves to sit next to his humans and be petted.  And despite being underweight when he arrived, thanks to Mama Carol’s ministrations he’s showing progress in that area, as well.

Volunteer comments:
     “What a great dog!  He needs to gain some weight, but he’s making progress already.  He loves to roll in the grass, loves attention, and will follow you anywhere you go.  He absolutely loves to be loved - a beautiful dog, both inside and out!”
 
     "Branson is an energetic, enthusiastic, and overall happy boy.  He appears to be very people centered and happily accompanied the volunteer around the play area as she was doing chores.  Equally, he sat quietly loving individual petting attention from the volunteer.  He is a petite boy with a beautiful coat and a happy demeanor. A real sweetie!"
 
    "What a sweetheart! I spent about 15 minutes with Branson in the Corral this afternoon. I guess for about 60 seconds he was a tiny bit unsure of me but that quickly went away. Before our visit was over he was trying to sit on my lap and giving me a few gentle kisses. He wanted to play and each time I would stop petting him he would gently nudge my arm. Branson is small for a boy but well proportioned and full of energy and very loving. He could stand to put on about 10 pounds and he’s come to the right place for that! A certain person who shall remain nameless (CF) takes bulking up skinny Dobes as a personal challenge.
 
   "Branson is an affectionate, playful sweet boy!  He seems very people oriented and happily romped around the volunteer  in the play yard as she did morning cleaning.  Equally he enjoys sitting quietly for petting.  He is a petite handsome boy with a beautiful shiny coat." "Although we fall in love with all of the dogs when they come to DRT, and they certainly all deserve to find wonderful forever homes, there is always one dog who tugs at your heart strings in a way the others don‘t. Branson is one of those dobies! It breaks my heart to see dogs who have been neglected, and it was obvious he had not been lovingly cared for. He was malnourished and not in pristine health. Thankfully, he found his way to DRT because Mama Carol will restore his health and fatten him up! The heart worms were addressed immediately and he will be in fine fettle by the time you take him home. In spite of what looked like real adversity in his first several years of life, he is a sweet, loving, happy dog who has years of life left to share with a special family. Rest assured if you find a place in your heart and your home for this amazing guy, he will reward you with years of unbridled love and devotion. Please come meet Branson!!!"

Young, handsome, loving, playful, and engaged - is there anyone reading this who doesn’t think he’d be a good match?  Make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come prepared to take this happy fellow home.  You’ll both be glad, if you do.
