As you can see from her pictures, this is a stunningly attractive, nicely-formed, large Dobergirl.

Her sad story is that she was from a military family who, being deployed, had successfully made arrangements to take her with them, only to learn at the last minute it would not be allowed. Imagine if she were your Dobergirl, how you would feel under the circumstances. This family was brokenhearted, but there was nothing to do for it but to surrender her to DRT so she could be placed in a new home.

Sadly she is feeling the stress and heartache, as well. As a breed, Dobers are very loyal family dogs and some of them especially ache when they are not with their families. This girl seems to be one of them, and it may take a bit for her to settle in with her heart in a new home.

One of my boys years ago, before I brought him home, just ached to be returned to his home. When I brought him home with me he was polite and obedient, but there was no heart connection for a bit. Thankfully after just a week, he picked up a slipper and took it to bed with him one night. The next day he came and asked to get into my lap. We knew that he knew he was home, and he was our completely loving and loyal and devoted family member for the rest of his life. I suspect this lovely girl may be similar to him in this regard.

She totally loves her Frisbee toy and will chase and return it endlessly. She'll drop it at your feet for you to continue after she has brought it back. It's almost as though this activity gets her focus off her current “in-betweenness” and gives her comfort. At the moment she's indifferent to other dogs and gently but clearly tells them to stay away if they crowd her. It's as though she has other things on her mind that are more important at the moment (like being in a home again).

Several of our volunteers have worked with her already. Here are some of their observations:

     Keely is stunning! She was shy when I took her to the exercise field the first time.  However, when I went back to get her to bring her in, she was excited to see me and gave me a kiss.  And she confidently led me back to the building, as if she was saying this is the way we have to go back!  It was really cute.   I love her already!”

      “She was a little shy when we first met - uncertain of my intentions.  Initially she hesitated to walk with me, but the second time she warmed up to me a bit more and was more assured and interactive, and she walked with me without hesitating. She was very gentle and sweet, too.  When I put her in the exercise field, she carefully checked it out before exploring.  She looks before she leaps.”

      “Keely is regal, such a beautiful female.  I could tell she was bewildered and looking for her family, and a little unsure of these strangers ( such as I) who were in the field with her.  But I could also tell that she had a good and kind heart, because she would let us gently walk up and pet her.  I was pleased that she walked nicely on the lead when I took her out to the exercise field.  She’s both regal and a lady.”

I think you can tell that this is an exceptional dog and who will make a fabulous member of the family once she realizes that she is in a permanent home.

If you think your home may be the one, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come see for yourself what you think of her in person. Just remember, if she's a little aloof initially, it's likely because her loyalty runs so deep. Once she knows you're her new family, I think you'll see that intense loyalty transfer to you, and this beauty will be at home with you forever.
