Then we have Jodie, Priscilla, and Dillinger with Pam at H.Q. Dillinger still hoping to find that someone special so he can have a home of his own and Troy hopes it will not be long before he is secure in his new home. Jodie and Priscilla are permanent FOND residents.
Dobermanns Needing Homes
Troy is an extremely handsome, fit, friendly and out-going brown and tan male born in November 2010 who is looking for an active home where he will have plenty of company.
He passed his initial assessment with flying colours when our volunteers were greeted by a friendly, happy dog who showed no signs of aggression he is now in a foster home in Aberdeenshire and has settled well, he is just a delightful dog bursting with character.
- Was living with a Westie dog
- Good traveller, loves his walks and his ball.
- Well socialised with relatives children
- Not good with cats, chases
- Generally well mannered and good on lead
Troy loves to play, he is a boisterous but well mannered dog who obeys commands and has been well trained he is only looking for his forever home due to a change in present owners’ circumstances meaning he has been left alone all day. He was bought by them as a puppy and has never been in kennels. Troy plays well with dogs that he has been introduced to. He is obviously microchipped with up-to-date vaccinations. Although he has been socialised with children he has not lived with them and is too big and boisterous to be placed with small children. He is a real people dog.
Up-date: 3rd July 2016 Despite his anxieties strangely enough Dilly is perfectly happy out on a lead walk in all sorts of environments including parks busy with other dogs and families. He loves going out in the van or car but he does not enjoy a household where lots of people are coming and going so alas he is still looking for that special home. He has shown that once he is confident in his own home he can become overly protective of his grounds. When he came in he was under 30 kilos now he is a shiny, muscular 37 kilos and feeling good about himself.
Up-date: 12th June
Dilly has caught the interest of several would be adopters but alas he is still waiting because of the special, quiet environment he needs, this is a dog who has been very traumatised in his previous life and requires sympathetic and knowledgeable handling. Meantime whilst he hopes for that special home he mooches about with Priscilla who is horribly bossy with him nevertheless they are good pals.
Dillinger is is a tall, handsome, entire 4 year old male with a somewhat doleful expression due to past poor experiences.
Life was very tough for Dilly in the past and he is hoping for that special person to turn his life around. Dilly would like a country home with large garden and access to quiet walks where he can gain confidence and restore his faith in mankind. He would just love to be someone’s special dog on a one to one basis, he is so affectionate.
- Shy, nervous but very kindly dog
- Travels well and loves the car
- Has lived with children and other animals
- Walks well on the lead
- Microchipped, with up-to-date vaccinations
- Loves to play with a ball, great sense of fun
- Needs owner/s with patience, time and understanding
Dilly is certainly enjoying exploring the grounds at FOND, going for his walks and is quite playful. Loves his food and is now putting on condition. He has also learned to exercise on the treadmill which is helping build up muscle along his top line on his back end.
Dilly will need an owner who is home most of the day and can initially be home 24/7 to settle him in. He does not mean to be a difficult dog but his anxieties mean he needs thoughtful handling, he is loving and wants to please. Separation anxiety is an issue and he can be destructive if stressed. He will make a very special and loyal companion so hopefully there is someone out there who is able to turn this dog’s life around.
Please complete an adoption application form and send photographs of your secure garden if you would like to be considered for Dilly. Please remember we are looking for a quiet, country home so please do not apply for Dilly unless you fit the critera, you will need knowledge of large active breeds and time for this gorgeous boy. He would benefit from being with a steady ‘bomb proof’ bitch not necessarily a dobe, just a companion whose example he will gain confidence from and be a playmate for Dilly. Looking for an adult only home because of his deep routed anxieties.
