This pathetically thin, sadly neglected, heart worm positive (will be treated) Doberboy was thankfully brought to us by the owner of a horse farm who found him tied to her front porch.

Listen to this story.  He was tied to a front porch rail near a door she rarely uses, so she has no idea how long he was there before she found him. He was wearing a prong collar and was tied on a lead so short he couldn’t sit down!  There was a note left with him that “explained” that his owners could no longer keep him because he was trying to breed their female, so they kept him in the garage.  It said “He’s a little thin, but he eats a full bowl a day.”  The note said they thought he’d do well on a horse farm.  I can’t help but wonder what kind of shape their poor female is in.

The first pictures were taken a WEEK after he was found, and you see how painfully thin he was even then.  He’s been so starved that he has to be fed small portions several times a day until he is able to eat full meals again.  If he tries to eat too much at once at this stage, he only throws it back up.  Miserable.  As regular readers may recall, I just go “Billy Jack” when I see stuff like this; it totally makes me crazy.  But then I realize it totally makes any sane person crazy and that we all want to see him filled out and healthy again.

It should come as no surprise that there are additional costs associated with bringing a dog in this condition back to prime health and ready for adoption.  Any financial support you can send along for this dear boy will be greatly appreciated, and it will be a satisfaction for you, too, to know that you’ve had a part in making him whole again.

All of that being said, and with all that he’s been through, you should see how grateful and appreciative and responsive he is to loving attention, good food, and tender care!  It’s always a joy to see one who’s very life was in the balance, start the path back to full health and weight and to see their profound appreciation from being treated well.  This one is no exception.  And despite being so thin, he enthusiastically pulls happily along on a walk, showing surprising strength for his condition.

Here are several observations from our volunteers:

    “Axtyn walked well on leash and was very interested in sniffing everything along the way.  He didn't pull or jump, and he wasn't shy or nervous with me and was friendly.”

    “Axtyn is an exuberant, handsome young man who has overcome the most dire circumstances and yet still has an incredible zest for life.  He is beyond sweet; he has a great youthful energy; he will give you the best Dober lean you’ve ever had; and he just wants your love!  What more could you want?”

    “"For as bad as he was treated this boy is ready to move on.  He has plenty of love to give and more strength than one would think."

    “Axtyn has an amazing spirit and personality.  He is so amazingly normal for a Dobie who has been so obviously neglected.  You’d think he would be withdrawn and mistrustful and would shy away from human contact.  Nothing could be farther from it.  He welcomes contact with people and wasn’t the least bit threatened or uncomfortable with other dogs.  This guy is going to be as beautiful on the outside as he is inside once the boss works her magic and gets 25-30 lbs. on that frame of his.  He’s a true diamond in the 'ruff!'”


This dear young Doberboy wants and deserves nothing more than a true, loving home - one where he will be cared for in a way he never experienced in his previous residence.  If you can provide such a home and he speaks to your heart, make an appointment to meet him once your application is approved, and come spend a little time getting to know him.  I can just picture him now, held close in the arms of his new family, joy and contentment on his face, and smiles all around from his humans, too. Good stuff.
