It takes a very special type of adopter to take a dog this old, knowing his days are numbered, so to speak.  Most of us understandably want a dog for as many years as possible, both because we just love them and want them forever, and because we HATE the gut-wrenching ache whenever our beloved dogs die.

I’ve had Dobers for 50 years, and every time one passes it hurts like the first time - I never get used to it.  That having been said, I immediately get another one because I hate to be without my dog.  It’s just how I am.  So to me, a person who knowingly adopts an old dog is filled with a measure of grace beyond mine, and I salute whoever that person may be.

Kerch (Ukrainian city name) is indeed a very senior fellow who came to us from a loving home when his owner (also a senior) had to move to an extended-care facility.  In an ideal world, the dog could have gone too.  He would have made an excellent resident in a place such as that.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option, so he awaits a loving home with someone who understands and appreciates and has a heart of love big enough to care for a dog of this age for the time he has remaining.

Volunteer comments:
    “I didn‘t get to spend too much time with him, but he was phenomenal on a walk with another dog. He was care-free and enjoying himself the whole time.”

If you have a Dober love that transcends time available and goes toward quality rather than quantity, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a bit of time in his gentle presence.  His heart will be grateful if you do
