This tall, handsome, red Dober’s name is a nod to a Ukrainian word that means “the great one."  He came to us from a family that realized too late they could not give him the care he needed (military, multiple small children, etc.).  He’s significantly underweight, has a pressure sore from being confined to a small, hard surface, had hookworms, and he came to us with the dreaded heartworm disease - multiple worms as long as 14 inches that ultimately damage the blood vessels in the lungs and reduce the heart‘s ability to pump, slowly sucking the life out of a dog.

If you read our profiles regularly, you know when it comes to heartworm we always humbly request your assistance in helping with the high cost for the risky heartworm treatment.  (And thanks to your generous response to this appeal for Maksym, he has now received the treatment and is doing well.  We thank you from our hearts and Maksym‘s (quite literally in his case!) for your assistance in saving his life.)

Unsurprisingly, he’ll climb a fence if he’s left alone, even in our expansive, grassy fields.  He clearly wants to be where his humans are, and when we’re out with him, he shows no inclination to “go over the fence.”
 
This fellow is quiet, friendly, and another one who will be a very happy and grateful dog to be in a home where he’s well cared for and loved.  One of our volunteers brought his senior female Dober to meet Maksym the other day, and not only did they get along well, both dogs sat peacefully side by side waiting for their treats.  Our volunteer was quite impressed when Maksym didn‘t try to steal the other dog‘s treat out of his hand but just waited patiently for his own.  Good dog.
 
As I went to meet him recently, he was sitting primly on a low, soft seat - no pacing or anxiety - just waiting patiently.  Before I could open the gate, he came to me and kissed my fingers through the fence.  Almost as an afterthought, it seemed to occur to him that he ought to alert at a stranger, and he issued a warning bark or two, but I knew he was faking.  I let him out into the larger area, and he happily yet quietly set to exploring all around.  This is a good fellow who will make a wonderful companion in a proper home.

Volunteer comments:
    “Wow, talk about a diamond in the rough!  As he returns to proper weight and health, Maksym will be one of the most striking Dobes we have rescued.  It’s obvious he’s been neglected over time, but he seems entirely unaffected by that and is very affectionate.  I had the opportunity to take him for a walk yesterday, and I could tell how much he was enjoying himself just being outside and being a dog with his nose to the wind.”

This fellow is going to make an excellent addition to a loving home for years to come.  If you think your home may be the one, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend some time observing and interacting.  You won’t go home alone if you do
