WHERE DO OUR DOGS COME FROM?
It is a common myth that dogs in rescues or shelters must be “damaged” or to blame for their surrender. Dobermans come to United Doberman Rescue from a variety of avenues:
1 – We help fellow Doberman rescue groups that are overwhelmed. All rescues are limited by SPACE and can quickly fill to kennel or foster home capacity. We work with partner Doberman groups across the country, and particularly with Doberman Rescue of North Texas, to offer a helping hand when space and transport is available in our program.
Including our current Adoptable dogs: Abbi, Misty Blue, Rhonda, Sylvia, Millers Dozen momma & pups

2 – Owner Surrender. Often times owner surrenders aren’t the fault of the dog at all. Unfortunately life happens, and it’s not always pretty: divorces, moves, allergies, family crisis, or death of the previous owner are sadly not uncommon.
Including our current Adoptable dogs: Bear, Luke, Luki, Maggie, Prada, Sunny

3 – We pull Dobermans from shelters into our own program. Shelters and humane societies frequently look to place dogs in breed-specific rescues, as this saves two lives: the life of the Doberman in the shelter who may be facing a euthanasia clock, and making room for another dog to come into the shelter. With our foster homes being experienced and trained in the breed, we are more apt to have a successful, lasting adoption.

We are very fortunate to be able to help dogs in need that are well outside of a ‘standard’ coverage area. Our 2017 dogs came from Minnesota, Montana, Texas, New Mexico, Idaho, Colorado, Kansas, Ohio, Iowa, Louisiana, California, Missouri, Wisconsin, North Dakota and even internationally from India! We are excited that 2018 is bringing even more connections.
