This handsome little Doberboy suffered the indignity of being left in the night drop box at a shelter. On the one hand, it makes me mad. But on the other hand, I’m very grateful there is such a drop box and that the ones who dropped him did at least this much for him rather than any of the worse options that are sometimes chosen.

He was significantly underweight and understandably frightened when he arrived at Elijah’s House, but already he’s showing improvement all around.  He’s perfectly formed - a true beauty within a beautiful breed.

He’s good on a leash, but at this time he’s also tentative when walking into someplace new, so patience and understanding will go a long way in bringing him along with this.

Dogs thrive on ritual. To a large degree they naturally train themselves to fit with their human’s schedule and circumstances. While they love surprises and are usually up for anything that’s going on at the moment, they thrive in knowing what the core “program” is. When a dog doesn’t have anything that’s predictable, when there is change from place to place and multiple new humans over a short period with none to be thought of as family, it’s stressful. All they want is to know what is expected and to meet those expectations. Hoover is no exception.

Thankfully, Elijah’s House is a place with lots of predictability and attention (not to mention good health care and plenty of good food) Although the dogs that come to DRT seem to understand it’s temporary and are always happy to leave with their new families, while they are with us they quickly settle in to the routine here and respond well to the love and attention we provide.

This is certainly proving true with Hoover, and he’s making great progress so far.  From my time with him, it’s obvious he is an outstanding young fellow.  I am confident a home that will provide him with gentle, patient touch and care in the early weeks will do wonders to bring out his natural confidence and enable him to live up to his full potential.

Here’s what our volunteers have to say about him:

    “Hoover is rather shy at first but has a very nice disposition. He’s very loyal and loving.”

    “Hoover is a bit timid, but sweet! I went into his run and knelt down since he was shy at first. He came up to me on his own and enjoyed some under the chin petting. He warmed up pretty quickly and whined when I left his run, so I went back in and loved on him some more. You can tell he’s going to love all the attention he can get, once he trusts you which won’t take long.”

    “Hoover has such a sweet and gentle demeanor about him. He was a little shy with me at first, but he warmed up within minutes, and I got the most wonderful Dober lean while giving him some love! Such a good boy!”  


This is a terrific young Doberboy with no faults or flaws we can detect. He’s just eager to be in a loving, forever home and to bond with his humans.

If your home and hearts are open to this boy, make an appointment to meet him after your application is approved, and come spend a little time loving on him. I’m guessing if you do, he’ll snuggle and wiggle his way into your heart and then unto your vehicle!
