Meet Mr. Alex - that's short for Alexander... the GREAT!!

"Will you let me show YOU just how GREAT??"

Alex lived in Georgia for 9 years until his mom passed away and shortly after that his dad went into a nursing home. The family called animal control to remove him from the house but animal control knew of a local woman who could help get him into rescue up north because Dobes and southern animal controls aren't a good match. The nice lady took care of him for a few weeks and called IDR after closer rescues couldn't take a Senior who needed heartworm treatment. IDR had a volunteer going to GA in a few weeks so he hung out with the nice lady a few weeks until his transport was ready. Alex lived with a large female dog in his first home and was around other animals in his temporary foster home. However he was scared when assessed with cats so it's unclear how he really feels about them. He is now safe with IDR and will go straight to the vet to begin his heartworm treatment but after that will be good as new.

Special Needs if any: None

Geographic areas: Illinois and the surrounding states

General Contact Information: Illinois Doberman Rescue will place Dobes in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, or Wisconsin. Please contact Pam by e-mail at go to IDR's website at for adoption information and application.


The Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet, medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about this program on the Sponsor A Senior page.
