Would not approach the cat -- seemed scared to do so.  The cat tried to sniff Bix and she backed away.
Good with older children.

This pretty, young Dobergirl came to us from a shelter where she had been picked up as a stray.  She‘s young but has been bred a lot and has not enjoyed the benefits of socialization in a home.  Each day with us, she improves, but for now it understandably takes her a while to trust and move closer to folks she doesn‘t know.

It took five baths to get her clean and fresh smelling - just maddening.  And in keeping with her general neglect, she came to us full of intestinal worms and heart worms, too.  As a result, she’ll be with us for a while as we eradicate the intestinal worms and monitor her while the risky-but-essential heart worm medicine does its job.  If you are a regular reader, you know we always appeal for donations to defray the significant additional cost of this medicine.  Donors give a bit of money and in return gain the satisfaction of knowing they helped save a dog’s life.

Volunteer comments:
    “Binx is a little smaller female Dober that is also on the thin side, but Carol will take care of that in short order!  She‘s somewhat reluctant to interact at first introduction, but she is super sweet as she gains the courage to trust her new keepers.  I worked on getting her to greet in small doses.  She would come forward and let me pet her for a few minutes, then she had to back away to give herself a chance to catch her breath and regroup.  When she regained her confidence, she would come over for some more attention.  I could sense the conflict in her with wanting to accept a new friend versus not quite being ready to trust.  She will definitely get there; we see this transformation with Dobers on a regular basis.”

    “Binx is an absolute sweetheart when interactions are on her terms!  She‘s a little shy, and  she preferred to hide in the shade when it was photo time, but she was lovely on her walk.  She took a little bit of time to warm up but was soon ever-so-gently nudging me for some pets (and gently reminding me to keep going when I stopped).  She is certainly a little timid, but I‘m sure she will continue to blossom with enough TLC; it hasn’t taken her long with us!”

    “Binx is a little shy to start, but you can tell that she really wants to get over that initial concern. She doesn’t want to be that way, but she doesn’t know what’s going on or what to trust.  I was relieved for her when she decided pretty quickly that I was okay.  From then on, some neck scratches were greatly appreciated.  She’s a sweet little thing.”

    “Binx is very shy for now, but she’s a pretty little female and well worth taking the time to get to know her.”


The discerning reader will understand that there’s nothing at all wrong with this dog; she’s just been used as a baby factory and has never known the joy and comfort of being a family dog.  Yet, it’s very evident there’s nothing she’d like more.

If you have a heart for nurturing this sweet young girl and helping her gain the confidence and trust she longs to have, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come see what a lovely girl she is.  Better yet, take her home and shower her with consistent, gentle affection, and she will no doubt gratefully reward you with love and devotion in return, for many years to come.
