Dobermanns Needing Homes
Striking brown and tan neutered male who was born. Recently visited by a FOND volunteers for an initial assessment they were greeted by a friendly, happy dog who showed no aggression or nervousness and was delighted to have their attention. Troy was relaxed in the home and responded well to his name and basic commands.
- Currently living witha Westie dog
- Travels well in the car and likes his toys.
- Troy has not lived with children but is friendly to those he meets on walks
- Not good with cats, chases
- Needs appropriate introduction to strange dogs
Troy will be coming in for a full assessment in due course and is looking for experienced Dobermann owners. More information and photographs in due course, a lovely dog who is sadly seeking his forever home due to a change in present owners’ circumstances.
Delightful black and tan bitch who is a much loved family pet being good with children and other dogs, her owner sadly and genuinely only rehoming due to change in circumstances.
- Vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.
- Friendly, well socialised and affectionate.
- Good on lead and travels well in car.
- Excellent recall and loves to chase her ball.
Tasha is looking for a home where she will have plenty of companionship and exercise, she interacted very well on her initial assessment when she was introduced to our assessor’s Dobie. Tasha was born in October 2009, she is docked being imported as a pup from Ireland and has just had her annual health check. As a pup she broke 2 metacarpals and this meant being in plaster for 8 weeks, this does not affect Tasha’s day to day running however there are signs of arthritis in these toes so some pain relief like metacam may be required in the future.Like many dogs she does not like fireworks or loud bangs. Interested applicants can see videos of Tasha having fun in her local park and more photographs will be available in due course once she is in her foster home awaiting that special person to come into her life.
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.
Meet Dillinger, he is a tall, handsome, entire 4 year old male with a somewhat doleful expression.
Life has been very tough for him in the past and he is looking 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.
- 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 and 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 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. 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.
