Hello!  I am new to the site :)  I have two fawn rescue dobes.  2 year old Whiskey and 4.5 month old Jax.  I also have a 9 year old american eskimo and a 6 year old west highland white terrier.  My husband calls me the crazy dog lady! LOL

I love my pups :)   My dobes were both adopted from Illinois Doberman Rescue where I am also a volunteer.

Whiskey was found in Georgia running down a highway pulling a heavy chain. A car swerved to miss him and hit the chain which nicked his ear. He was taken to the nearest shelter where they couldn't get his ear to stop bleeding. They then decided to put him on a "no hold" "immediate euthanasia" because of the bleeding. Luckily for him and us Doberman Assitance Network found out about him and plucked him from the shelter! They sent him north to Illinois Doberman Rescue where we adopted him 4 months later. He gave us some issues in the beginning with running any chance he could get out the door and trying to show dominance but after weeks of bonding training (hand feeding, leashed to me 4 hours a day, nothing good unless I give it) he is an amazing dog!! He has bonded to us so well. He is the best. 

Jax was a foster failure. LOL I was fostering him and just couldn't let him go after I saw how he and Whiskey were together. Jax was taken from a pretty bad back yard breeder situation with his litter mates and mom. He has some awful scars on his legs where his dewclaws were incorrectly removed and his tail is docked too short but he is SO smart and so sweet. He is doing amazing with his obedience training and loves Whiskey so much. He was pretty skiddish with people at first (rightly so after his beginning in the world) but he is doing amazing now. I take him with us everywhere - School pick up, home depot, dog park, around the neighborhood, college campus, pet stores etc. I try to expose him to as much as possible in the world. He is such a sweet boy!
