I thought I posted this, but I guess my tears got in the way. Shelbi was diagnosed with bone cancer in February and I was told she had 30 days. On June 8th at 2am she woke me up and wasn't herself, she steadily declined throughout the day. I took her to the vet's office and she was put down in the backseat of my truck. My heart is full of love, but very broken at the loss. I know that I have not posted in a couple of years, but I remember the advice that I received and the compassion for issues I had along the way. As a first time Doberman owner I know that I made some judgement errors, but I loved my Shelbi with my whole heart, and will miss her just as much. I would Love to say that I will be getting another Doberman, but I have decided to work with a close friend that breeds AKC Beaucerons, and I will be getting a female between June 24th and when International transport is available. Her name will be Saleen. I chose to go with an S name in rememberance of Shelbi, and I am staying in the Ford family. Her papered name will be decided later. I am not replacing her that can never happen, but I have time for a puppy now. Off work due to Covid. My baby will be waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge, but her spirit will be here with Saleen as we endeavor in all the new puppy training. Thank you all for your help along the way. I learned so much from the expertise on the page. To all new owners, please listen to the people on this page they are very knowledgable and most are willing to help and not judge.

Hi Shelbi's Mom, 

 There was another post with the same title, which I said we are so sorry. Thank you for more details and we hope your heartbreak eases.

I just can't imagine how hard it will be for us. Bella was attacked and could have died, but she's ok now, and 8. Loki is so in love with me my hub is getting jealous! 

We are glad to see that you are getting a puppy, and hope it is a good and loving dog for you,

Kind regards, 

 Julia Michael

 Bella and Loki

I thought I posted it, but it was the same day and I was beside myself. I searched, but didnt find it. If I missed it I apologize. Thank you for your kind words. I am glad that your two are doing well and that she recovered.

Condolences and hugs to you on the loss of Shelbi - and good luck with a new puppy.
