Smythe and Wesson came to us from the home of a longsuffering father whose son had moved from out of state and had left them with him temporarily while looking for a house. That was two years ago. During all that time they’ve been living outside.

Dad finally accepted the fact that the son wasn’t going to take them back again, so thankfully he surrendered them to DRT and they now are with us at Eljah’s House, where they get plenty of companionship and exercise, live in air-conditioned comfort, and sleep inside on dog beds as they await their new homes.

Despite having been together since birth, they really don’t get along together that well. Both are males who, until coming to us had been intact, and they just butt heads all the time over who’s in charge. So we’re placing them separately and are confident they’ll both be happier as a result. And the owner who surrendered them agrees.
 
Wesson weighs in at 90 lbs. with not an ounce of fat on him. He is lovable and has a sweet personality. He was the perfect gentleman for his vet exam and bath.
 
Smythe weighs in at 87 lbs. (You can see why they were in competition). If I had to call it, I’d say he may be the sweeter of the two, but he’s also currently a little more unsure and nervous.

Regarding Smythe, one of the vet staff said, "OMG, Smythe is such a love! I walked in the back and heard something, and it was his teeth chattering. He's so scared yet so lovable."  In their time with us so far though, we’ve learned both of them click their back teeth.  Some Dobers will do that; it kind of sounds like they're chattering them and doesn’t have to do with being afraid.
 
Both of them love to run. And they especially love to fetch and return and play with rope toys. Interestingly they are also well trained and have had off-leash and on-leash training. And they know to heel, sit, stay, and “quiet” on command.

Our volunteers have shared the following observations:

    “Wesson - This big boy will win your heart in no time! His floppy ears, beautiful eyes, and gentle-yet-playful demeanor make for a wonderful companion. And he loves to be cuddled and made over, which is so darn cute!”

    “Smythe - Just like his brother, Smythe will win you over in 2 seconds flat! I have never had a dog lean in to me quite like Smythe does! The closer he is to you while receiving lots of kisses and rubs, the better!”

    "Wesson looks up at you with the prettiest eyes I think I have ever seen on a Doberman. He also likes to talk to you with little chop chop sounds. 
 
    "Wesson is very friendly once he's comfortable with you. He's still a little timid around the kennel, but he's doing much better than when he first arrived. He has a lot of energy to keep up with, but he walks and runs well on a leash. He could use a little bit of training to keep from being distracted by everything around him and pulling away, but that may go away once he's comfortable with his new surroundings."



So if these large, handsome, energetic, loving Dobers appeal to you, make an appointment to meet them and see for yourself which one may be the better match for your home. I’m confident that whichever one you choose, you’ll find in him a fabulous companion for many years to come.
