Welcome to doberman911.org, the website for Special Needs Dobermans (SND). We are an organization of people with a common goal of helping senior and special needs Dobermans. That need may be financial or it may be only information and/or moral support for the owner of a Doberman with a serious illness or injury. We will also aid in rehoming and fostering senior Dobermans. These Dobermans may be shelter rescues or they may already be much loved companions with a special need. Financial aid may be through donations or through avenues such as online auctions. Every precaution will be taken to assure that the need is real.

Please enjoy this beautiful tribute to Rescued Dobermans everywhere - brought to us by a believer!!


Give me the ugly dog with one eye, three legs,
and help me show that they're more than just a form and a face.
Give me the scarred dog, burned and slashed with hate,
and help me lead it away from that terrible fate.
Give me the deaf and blind dog, and help me show it the way
in the silence and dark of each of their days.
Give me the shutdown dog, depressed of mind,
and help me cherish their soul until their fears unwind.
Give me the old dog, bent and broken with age,
and help me fill their last days with an unending grace.
Give me the ugly dog, I'll leave the pretty one for you,
and help me show them they're worthy of love and joy, too.

Meet The SNDobes Helped With General Funds!!

These Special Needs Dobermans were helped with one-time grants from our most important fund, the General Fund.  This fund is used to help Dobermans fortunate enough to find themselves in Rescue Groups.  Assistance is only provided for extraordinary expenses.  These grants can be augmented by your generous contributions to any of these precious Dobes!! Private owners will be provided the necessary information to help them fundraise for their own Dobes as well as being given information to reduce their costs for medications and ways to seek additional information about Doberman illnesses.




January, 2018:  This most handsome gentleman you see before you is Conrad.  Conrad was found amid the chaos of the Thomas fire in California. He was rescued by a steadfast friend of Doberman Pinscher Rescue in Fillmore named Betty, who took him under her wing when the Rescue had to be evacuated due to the fire. He is now safely ensconced with DALPR at the ranch and doing well. We don't know much about this dear boy. What we do know is that when Betty found him, one of his rear legs was horribly swollen. Betty immediately took him to her vet, where it was discovered our dear Conrad had a very nasty femoral fracture that was quite old. Sadly, nothing could be done to correct the fracture, and amputation was the only option. Because of Conrad's general body condition, his recovery will be a long one, but he's in the best of hands and is expected to once again be a energetic and active guy. The RescueAngels at Dobies and Little Paws Rescue in Fillmore take on countless Dobes and gets them healthy, ultimately finding them homes. With the recent horrific fires, they were indeed very fortunate to escape with their building and physical plant intact. Because evacuation was necessary, they were unable to take on any dogs and financially, things came to a standstill. Please, have a look at their latest miracle, Conrad, and make a donation to SND so we can help assure that DALPR can continue it's amazing work. I know noble Conrad thanks you, as do DALPR and me.  You can begin helping Conrad now by clicking on the PayPal button to the right. If your account allows, opting for family gifting saves even more! You may always mail one in instead! Want to see more of our Darling Dude in turquoise?

January, 2018:  The beauty you see before you is Miss Roxy, an 11 year old Senior Sweetheart! In Roxy’s former life, she was a puppy machine, cranking out those baby Dobies just as fast as her ‘greeders’ could get her pregnant. Once she was all used up and unable to bring in the $$, she was deemed useless and dumped, thrown out like a dirty rag. Roxy was a sad sight being both physically and mentally shut down when the Rescue Angels of Doberman Rescue of Nevada stepped in on her behalf. Roxy had never had any health care and was suffering from a severe case of Demodex. She had multiple painful lesions all over her body. You could see clearly that she was starving and she showed signs of mistreatment as well. Never living any semblance of what a Doberman lover would call a ‘normal’ life, Roxy was afraid of anything and everything! Even the soft touch of a human hand terrified her! Following many months of treatment, Roxy’s Demodex was finally gone and a lovely red coat slowly appeared. It was hard for Roxy to gain weight due to her skittishness and inability to relax enough to eat a full meal. Lots and lots of consistent love and patience from the DRNV Angels have given Roxy more stability and trust but she is still fearful of most people. Roxy has had an array of medical issues in the past that have been the direct result of her former malnourishment and neglect, the most recent being dental disease. Roxy recently endured 3 hours of oral surgery and the removal of 5 major teeth to relieve her of dental pain. Her surgeon reported she had an unusual condition where she had bacterial infection on the inside of her teeth vs. the usual outside of the teeth and gums as we are accustomed to seeing. She also had loose teeth, decaying subsurface and bone loss as well. Poor girl!! Now, it doesn’t take much of an imagination to figure out that Roxy’s dental care was quite costly. DRNV has come to the great supporters of SND with hopes we can help them out with sweet Roxy’s grand total. Your gift is tax deductible and NO amount is ever too small!! You can mail in your donation or you can use the PayPal button to the right. (If your account allows, tap on ‘send money’ and then ‘family and friends’ to keep you donation fee free!) Roxy is once again on the mend! Our friends of DRNV along with we of SND all thank you in advance for your continued generosity in supporting our fabulous breed!  Want to see Miss Roxy?? Check her sweetness here http://www.doberman911.org. Beth McCahren, Roxy's SND Case Manager.

January, 2018:  Gunner is a noble looking boy, isn’t he? Lucky for this 4 year old, his owner didn’t seem to think so because he dumped him. Gunner is yet another case of being dumped becoming his salvation—thanks to the RescueAngels of San Antonio Doberman Advocacy and Rescue. These usual Angels swept in and saved him. From what, besides his uncaring (obviously) ex-owner (fill in the blank _____)? Heartworms, of course!!! Why would the jerk who barely cared enough to surrender his dog have bothered with heartworm preventative? Here it is, January 1st, and I’m already foaming at the mouth about yet another sick Dobe that didn’t deserve this neglect. AARRGGHH!! Please join SADAR, SND and me in this battle. Anything will help, no amount of caring can ever be too little and a whole lot more than he's had before!!! Join us all in mounting the Worm Wars for Gunner!! You can begin helping Gunner by clicking on the PayPal button to the right. Opting for family gifting saves even more if your account allows! You may also mail one in, that’s what I do! Thank you so much for beginning this new year with the generosity all of us appreciate so much. Thank you!!! Carol Belknap, Gunner’s SND Case Manager.
