This sweet Dobergirl‘s name comes from an almond-flavored confection, the color of which can be similar to the fawn coat on a Doberman such as she.  Unfortunately, there‘s nothing sweet about her past.  She had been dumped at a shelter after having been overbred and neglected for years.  While she’s in good health overall, she had an advanced case of Demodex mange (non-contagious) that will be cleared up soon, now that she is on fast-acting medication.  As a result of the mange, at the moment she has hardly any hair.  (It will grow back with the mange gone.)  


On the topic of mange, Carol provides this informative comment:
    “Mites are on every dog (and humans, too).  Immune systems handle that on a daily basis.  But often, when dogs are under extreme stress, the immune system cannot keep things under control and the mites take over.  They burrow into the hair follicles and the hair falls out.  Secondary infection on the skin also usually occurs, and then you‘re battling both the Demodex and the infection.  Thank God for medicines; in the old days, a dog with mange had to be dipped once a week, and it took months to clear it.  But with the new medications, it’s an easy fix.”

As though all that weren’t enough, she also has ear infections in both ears (also being cleared up), and that most dangerous of all problems, heart worms.  I say it so often you may know it by heart now, but for the sake of those new to our site, heart worms, left untreated, will slowly take the life of a dog.  Treatment will eradicate the worms, but it is at once very risky and very costly.  

This dear Dobergirl is surely worthy of a new start, and your donation toward the cost of her heart worm treatment means you have directly had a part in securing a healthy and happy future for her.

Despite what she’s been through, she has a truly sweet disposition.  She carries her little stuffed toy around with her much of the time (maybe it’s her first?), and she loves to be covered with a blanket at nighttime and will not move until morning.

Volunteer comments:
    “Marzipan is a sweet girl in terrible shape (temporarily), but she has beautiful eyes and comes up for love from us volunteers.  She doesn’t realize she’s not beautiful at the moment, and we don’t want her to realize it, because before long she’ll be as lovely outside as she is inside!”    

    “Marzipan’s natural personality is to be a loving and loyal companion.  Her willingness to engage (and even play bow) speaks to a loving heart, and she keenly wants to be the beneficiary of love and attention.  She also REALLY loves her toys.  Some of our Dobers ignore the toys, but Marzipan treasures them like babies, and she carries one around with her most of the time.”


If you can see past her temporary visual condition to the loving, gentle soul within, you will know this is a close, life companion.  Make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come get to know her a bit.  Chances are, if you do, she’ll be the Christmas confection that sweetens your life for years to come.
