Meet Miss Shadow!! She's looking for a job - her WantYou Ad reads:

"Shadow and Couch Potato for hire!!  Will work for treats & love!!"

Sweet 12 year-old Shadow recently came to IDR and it's great that she did. She is in need of some TLC and to put on a few pounds. Shadow only weights 44 lb. but she is a very petite DobeLady as well. She is described as a sweetie pie by her foster mom and they are hoping to find her a new forever home with someone who is retired. Shadow appears deaf but don't let that fool you as she doesn't miss a thing. She needs to go out frequently to potty but will sleep through the night in her doggy bed and you can even get up in the night without waking her! She is a loving and adorable girl who deserves to spend the rest of her days in a home where she will be cared for. She is now fostered with 2 male Dobes and a small male dog. Shadow does not bother cats so she can live with them peacefully as well.

Special Needs if any: Shadow is deaf.

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.
