FOND currently has 7 Dobermanns in its care, three in permanent foster homes being Rossi, Flo, and Missy. Snoop the latest arrival is in a foster home, more news regarding Snoop later on in September, at the moment he is not ready to rehome. Then we have Jodie, Priscilla, and Dillinger with Pam at H.Q. Dillinger is still hoping to find that someone special so he can have a home of his own. Jodie and Priscilla are permanent FOND residents.
Dobermanns Needing Homes
Brown and tan 18 month old male dobermann yet another import who is currently in foster care and suffering with the demodectic mange.
Snoop’s owner relinquished him as a change in his circumstances meant the dog could not be cared for adequately. He was in a kennel situation leaving him with severe separation anxiety which of course exacerbates his condition and was on an inappropriate raw diet.
It will be mid to late Autumn before Snoop can be re-homed as the mange needs to be under control, he will be neutered and once he is in good sorts his needs thoroughly assessed. Already it has become apparent that Snoop requires more than a ‘pet’ home but no more kennels for Snoop, someone active to give him the companionship he needs with experience in training dogs for obedience or agility is the owner we are looking for. This is a dog who needs to have a purpose, he loves learning new commands and after just a week is going to his bed on command, sitting and waiting for his food and going outside and peeing on request. Very encouraging for a dog that has never been house trained or lived in a home.
Snoop is exercising with Dobie bitches and treating them with respect.
If you can offer Snoop his special home then please complete an adoption application form and return to Pam.

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.
