Please note if interested in one of our Dobermanns you will be required to complete our Adoption Application form and subject to a home check and veterinary references. Please see Adoption Page on this website and remember to help keep our costs down make sure you give a land line number if leaving a telephone message. Alternatively please call back later. Thank you.
Please note that when applying to adopt one of our dobermanns, most of our dogs are kennelled in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. If you would like know more about a certain dog please call Pam on (01346) 532227.
There are currently several Dobermanns in FOND’s care. We have four in permanent foster homes these are Shona, Rossi, Flo, and Missy. Priscilla is a permanent FOND resident and lives with Pam at H.Q. Priscilla enjoys keeping the males in for rehoming company. Currently Priscilla spends her time with best pal Max who is 30 months old and it looks as though Max may be another dobe permanently in FOND’s care.
Currently FOND has 3 permanent foster dobes who require substantial funding for their veterinary needs. Resources are currently very limited and with 2 permanent high maintenance residents and others needing on going support we are currently unable to accept anymore dogs into kennels until these matters are addressed.
Dobermanns Needing Homes
Up-date 31st August: Tess went to her new home over a week ago and has since had a heart scan and ECG, sadly her heart is in poor condition and DCM was confirmed. Despite all this she has settled well and is now on Vetmedin and Sotalol for her condition hopefully there are some happy days ahead for her with her new friends.
Tess is eight year old and has the most lovely happy temperament with both people and other dogs. Sadly her owners have had to give her up and we honestly thought it would be virtually impossible to find Tess a new home due to on-going health problems which thankfully at the moment are not stopping her from enjoying her life. Whilst tests have been carried out to assess Tess’s needs a very special lady who already has one Fondie came forward offering her a home. Introductions between Tess, Zeus and Misty went well yesterday thanks to support from a ‘key’ supporter in Fife and should be confirming that Tess has gone to a superb country home in the not too distant future. Fingers and paws crossed for Tess as she is rather special.
Max is a very striking, powerful neutered male Dobermann born end of March 2016. He is not for the faint hearted as he is too clever for his own good and can be controlling. In the right hands this handsome boy could be quite brilliant in any field from obedience to tracking or agility. He just loves and needs to be worked. He cannot go as a family dog as he needs an owner where the relationship is one on one and with someone who is used to training and working with a full on young male dobermann. Max was returned to FOND last September and has not been a problem, he has formed a strong friendship with Priscilla but in the main he is best as an only dog because he can be possessive. Max is reactive to other dogs especially when on lead, however, if you have his attention with a ball he remains focused on you.
- Overly confident, highly intelligent dog
- Loves the car and travels well
- Plays very well with Priscilla
- Strong on the lead so full of energy
- Microchipped, vaccinations up-to-date
- Good house dog protective of his home and grounds
Looking for a rural home for Max as an only dog with someone who will give him the exercise and training he needs. Max is happy with his current regime but it would be nice to think he could find someone that can give him that special home. PLEASE do not apply for this dog unless you have the necessary knowledge and time to give he is not for the novice.
