HE touches turns to Fawn!!
(leaving vet)... Better (home?)... BEST!! See my fridge??
was surrendered to an Ohio shelter by his owners and Bluegrass
Doberman Rescue stepped in to save the day. He’s 9 years-old
but it seems Midas hasn’t seen the memo! He loves all people,
loves to play with the other dogs, and enjoys exploring his new
surroundings and pleasing his humans. He was very nervous at the
shelter with all the noise and commotion but has settled into
his foster home quickly. Midas is even-tempered even with a sometimes
grumpy younger male dog he’s sharing his foster home with.
He’s definitely a Velcro Dobe, wanting to keep his humans
in sight but seems to benefit from having another dog around.
He is almost bald, having developed a bacterial skin infection
most likely resulting from sub-standard nutrition. Since starting
his medicated baths, taking an antibiotic, and getting good quality
groceries there is some new hair showing in his coat. He’s
also responding to the calmer environment and is now very relaxed.
Midas will be evaluated for some lumps and skin growths as well
as having a dental. He’s a very food motivated boy! String
cheese and stinky treats definitely get his undivided attention,
although he’s not fond of green beans.
Needs If Any: An adopter with Doberman experience would probably
be best for Midas as he’ll try all the “dobe tricks”
to get his way, even though he does it sweetly. He’s got
the Dobe “stare” down to a science.
Adoption Area: Kentucky and surrounding states but will adopt
outside that area if a home visit can be arranged and the people
are willing to travel to meet the Dobe in their foster home.
