Dobermanns Needing Homes
Up-date 15th February: Seiger arrived at our kennels yesterday morning and spent several hours meeting and walking with our resident Dobie bitches, he behaved extremely well and will now be having a period of assessment prior to being ready for rehoming some time in March.
Black and tan neutered, large, handsome male born in 2008 will be seeking new home after change in family circumstances. Lived with family consisting of young baby and his life long companion an American bulldog bitch. Athletic boy who will appreciate owner who can give him the time and exercise he requires, loves to go jogging. Seiger lacks general confidence in a busy environment and his anxiety is not likely to change as it is not due to lack of socialisation, however, he is a kind, generally obedient, well mannered dog in the home and about the grounds at FOND.
- Loving, loyal, kind dog
- Likes the quiet life, needs a country home
- Loves rolling in the grass and playing ball
- Just wants to be someone’s special, constant companion
If you think you can offer Seiger a home and would like to be considered please call (01346) 532227. Initial feelings are that he will make someone a very special companion, a thoroughly likeable dog.
Up-date 15th February: Xan’s rehoming has been put on hold as she has come into season.
Sweet, black and tan 2 year old bitch being rehomed due to personal circumstances. Xan will be ready for her new home at the end of February once she has been spayed and her vaccinations are brought up-to-date.
- Currently living with 2 other dogs, 4 cats and a rabbit!
- Travels well in the car
- Loves to play with all toys
- Walks on a halti would benefit from further training
On initial meeting Xan can be nervous as she is quite shy as her original owner, who passed away, was not in good enough health to socialise her properly. She is really lovely natured and enthusiastic about life and everything she does, can be a bit of a clown and will amuse herself with toys tossing them in the air to catch them.
Xan will definitely reward someone who is willing to put in the work completing her general socialisation and make a lovely, loyal companion she is basically very obedient in the home and knows all the basic commands.
Xan can be seen in Lincolnshire.
Up-date 22nd February: Tiny Shona is having a great time bossing poor Seiger about and they are playing well together. She is due to have her x-rays on the 12th March. Nothing bothers this cheeky little rascal.
Shona arrived with FOND on the 1st February and was not in the least concerned by her long and arduous journey from Romania. She quickly made herself at home falling straight into our routine. A lovely, friendly little girl she is a real character who responds well to her name and wants to interact with everyone, she is always ready for a game.
Shona visited our vet after a few days for an initial health check and it was agreed she needed a period of settling in, good food and an easy exercise regime to start building up some of the wasted muscle in her rear end. She is due to have her near fore wrist joint x-rayed which has clearly been fractured in the past, plus x-rays of her hips and knees as there is evidence of significant arthritic changes in the latter which could indicate problems with her cruciate ligaments. She will have a careful examination of her mouth, which she is very shy about having lost all her teeth and more worryingly the roots remain, these will obviously be liable to infection and this could mean serious problems for the wee lass in the future on top of her poor mobility. In the long term Shona will be seeking a permanent foster home, this lovely little rescue is hoping for someone special to turn her life around. Black and tan, docked, spayed, with vaccinations all up-to-date she is microchipped and an absolute delight who will make someone a superb pet and friend who is NOT looking for a ‘high energy’, take life at 100 miles an hour normal fit Dobie. Shona is small about the size of a 4 month old Dobermann pup and frail but determined.
We do have a dedicated couple who run North Derbyshire Animal Support and regularly support FOND, they had the lovely Tilly May when she was left in kennels after her owner passed away whilst on holiday, offering that special home once all Shona’s needs are established and the time is right for her to move. Currently she is a content lass, happy to be well fed and warm with a basket full of toys.
It is extraordinary how happy, cheerful and playful she is after being abandoned and left to starve. Obedient, well behaved on the lead, a seasoned traveller after her trip from Romania, Shona curls up in her bed, on the sofa with you or in her crate an obliging soul who constantly brings you a ball or her favourite toy, currently ‘Flingo’ a pink flamingo with purple beak asking you to play with her.
Up-dates on Shona’s health will follow in March. Thank you to a number of kind people who have made donations towards Shona’s keep and general care, it is much appreciated.
