I always hate to see a senior Doberman in need of a new home.  I wish for them that they would not have to go through the process of adoption and could just be settled and at peace with comfortable and familiar surroundings.  Perfection is a rare circumstance, unfortunately, so when they need to come to us, we do our best to make the transition a positive experience and to match them with a home that welcomes them with open arms and hearts for the years they have remaining.

This giant, handsome, gentle senior came to us when his human had to move.  She had adopted him from a family member several years before and longed to keep him, but it was not to be.  His name is an obvious nod to the current Ukrainian president and the courage and leadership he has shown during the invasion. 


You can see from his pictures that despite his size and age, he’s alert, playful, interested, and engaged.  And he moves well besides.  Unsurprisingly he has some typical, fatty growths common to senior Dobers, but they cause no harm and just testify to his senior status.  Beyond that and a slight bit of graying in his muzzle, he looks (and acts) considerably younger than his age.

Senior Dobers often have an advantage.  They’ve lived and learned and are mellow to the point that not much gets them unduly worked up.  This is true with Zelensky, too, although it’s possible he might be a bit grumpy if you crowd him when he’s blissfully resting on the sofa, wishing to be left to his comfort rather than being needlessly disturbed.  Not unreasonable and not surprising, I’d say.  


Volunteer comments:
    “Zelensky is a good looking red male that definitely looks younger than his nine years.  He’s very friendly, with good energy and curiosity for this elder statesman.  He is laid back and comfortable in his own skin, and he doesn‘t appear to get bothered by the sight or sound of the other Dobers at DRT, quietly taking it all in stride.  Zelensky just wants a buddy to hang out with.  He even will softly whine a little when you leave him by himself in one of the fields.  Zelensky wants attention but doesn‘t need to be the center of attention.”

    “So far, I’ve only spent a few minutes with Zelensky in one of the outside runs, but I was impressed with his calm demeanor and good looks.  He reminded me quite a bit of my late boy, Jake.  These pictures sure show a senior fellow with plenty of gas left in the tank, too!”


If your heart responds to a senior Dober, you won’t do better than this one.  He really is a prize.  Make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend some time getting to know him a bit.  You won’t be disappointed, because he’s nothing but good.
