Will do best in an only-dog home.  She enjoys walks with other dogs, may or may not interact through a fence, but prefers her own space in the home.
Sniffed cat and then ignoed.
Good with older children.

Sybil is a purebred, European Dobergirl who was part of a large animal family (seven cats, six purebred Rotties).  They all lived happily inside a large home with loving mom and dad until the dad died.

 
After the dust settled, so to speak, her mom was blessed with a new love.  They shared five happy years together, but he was not keen on having so many large dogs inside the residence, so he built them their own heated/lighted building with a fenced yard area.

Very sadly, the mom has now passed too, and her caring mate is graciously seeing that all the animals are properly placed.  In the case of the Dober, she has come to us as she awaits a new home with a loving family.

One can imagine how unsettling it is for her, a senior Dober who lived for years with many other dogs in her family, to now be in an unfamiliar setting with no understanding as to what may be happening.  Not surprisingly, she’s briefly hesitant when meeting someone new, and you can see by the bewildered look on her face that she doesn’t know what’s happening.  Thankfully, over the years she’s been well cared for medically, and apart from being overweight, she’s in great shape.  She is a beautiful dog that is a bit adrift at the moment but who will surely find comfort and solace in being in a loving home again.

In her time with us, we’ve learned that she has apparently reached the age where she wants to be in a one-dog home.  We tried her recently for a few days with Dober owners that have a dog already, and while she will walk with another dog without any issues, she clearly wants nothing to do with another dog in the home.  I really do think she’s just tired of change and only wants the solace and comfort of a home with loving humans where she can relax and be content.

Here’s what the folks who took her for the weekend had to say:
    “"She made herself right at home upon arrival, going over to our grandson‘s bed and plopping down on it as though it had been hers for years.  She even slept in the bed with our adult son and enjoyed that!  She’s very loving to humans and follows us around the house.  She’s completely well mannered inside the home."

They went on to say that she is the perfect Dober, though probably in an only-dog home.  It seemed to them, as it does to us, that she is somewhat like a shell-shocked victim.  For whatever reason, she needs her space from other dogs at this point in life.

To be clear and certain: this dear girl doesn’t start any troubles with other dogs; she just doesn’t want to be interactive with them anymore.  I’d say at this stage of life and given the past losses and experiences, she’s earned that right.

Volunteer comments:
    “Sybil is a sweet girl with a loving temperament.  She’s quiet for now, being rather confused about where she is and why she’s here.”

    “Sybil is a black-and-tan Dober that is another sweet girl.  She is a well-mannered lady who likes a slower-paced introduction.  She had to check me out for a minute before she was willing to come over and say hello.  Once she did we became fast friends, so she definitely is willing to make a connection.  Sybil‘s personality works well with everyone here, and she’s at that stage in life where she doesn’t require extensive training.  She has an "old soul" quality about her that just makes you want to hang out with her!”


This gal truly seems to be an understated treasure who will be very grateful and loving once she knows she’s in a permanent, nurturing home.  If you have a heart for her, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time with her.  She’ll be grateful and you’ll all be happy if you make her part of your family.
