This is an interesting story.  This fellow came to us from a postal mail delivery person.  You know the legendary and not-unfounded issues with mailmen and dogs.  Well, this lady is a dog lover, and she’d keep seeing this Dober on her route.  Far from there being any issue between them, they made fast friends.  

As it turned out, the family that owned him decided they didn’t want him anymore, and seeing the bond the mail lady had with him, they offered him to her.

She took him home temporarily, but she has a dozen dogs of her own (I told you she was a dog lover), and she knew that as much as she might like to, she couldn’t keep him for herself.  So she reached out to DRT, and now he’s with us.

Unfortunately, his heart was full of those wretched, life-robbing parasitic heart worms.  As a result, once again our vet has had to administer the very costly and potentially dangerous (while it eliminates the worms) heart worm medication.  As we always do with heart worm, we solicit your focused financial assistance in covering this very expensive treatment.  If you are willing, any amount you can contribute will go toward the eradication of these devils, and you will play a specific part in saving the life of a wonderful dog.


 
How fortunate he is that we have him now and he is receiving the lifesaving treatment.  He’s a very good Doberboy who has adapted without stress to being in his new surroundings.  And he’s just plain handsome, to boot!

One of our volunteers assisted with his transport, and while Rizzo started out in the far back of the vehicle, he wormed his way up to the front seat and sat there like a regular passenger the rest of the way home!

In fact, here’s how the volunteer describes it:
    “I had the pleasure of transporting Rizzo to DRT yesterday.  You never know when you pick up a dog what you’re going to find.  Rizzo was a pleasant surprise, and at the end of our two-hour ride we were buddies.  He started the trip in the very back of my 4Runner but quickly worked his way up to the back seat.  After stopping to pick up my lunch at a drive through, Rizzo’s curiosity got the better of him, and I found his head right at the back of my ear.  He wasn’t doing anything, just sniffing the air and being respectful.  Well, I thought offering him a French fry couldn’t hurt, and I got another pleasant surprise as he gently took what I offered.  I was surprised because my own Dober has on occasion mistaken my fingers for food in her haste to gobble up a treat!  So I started giving Rizzo a fry for each one I ate.  When our lunch was finished, I kept finding my new best friend standing on the console and the back seat. When I cleared off the front seat next to me, that was all the encouragement he needed to move up front and ride shotgun.  He stayed there, looking out the windows, and every once in a while he would lean over and gently lick my hand as it was resting on the shifter.”

If that’s not enough to make you get into the car and drive straight here (assuming your application has been approved and you’ve made an appointment), here’s a comment from another of our volunteers:
    “Rizzo is the perfect combination of good looking, great personality, temperament, and all the other qualities that make a Dober stand out from other breeds.  He’s also great on the leash, not much of a barker, has a good energy level (he doesn‘t overwhelm you with excitement), and is affectionate.  And you can see by the pictures how handsome he is!”

There’s not much I can add to improve on those enthusiastic descriptions, so if you think he may be a match for your family, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come take a look.  I wouldn’t delay, if I were you.  He’s not likely to be here long.
