July, 2017 - Rest In Peace dear Mr. Bernie!
are so very loved, forever!!
Thank you DRNV for taking care of me!!
to you and my wonderful Foster Family, I'll be loved for the rest
of my life!!
at the age of 9 years old is described as one of the nicest, friendliest
and sweetest dobes the rescue has ever met. His past is mystery,
but we do know is Bernie was discovered at a shelter in San Bernardino,
CA with the label ‘stray’ attached to him. He was
terribly dirty, incredibly smelly, and had an open wound on his
snout oozing odorous blood and pus. This shelter is notorious
for killing animals quickly, especially unhealthy ones, and Bernie’s
kill date had been set for the very day the angels from Doberman
Rescue of Nevada stepped in to save him. Misdiagnosed at the shelter
with having eye and nasal infections, DRNV’s vet quickly
diagnosed him with severe dental infection. The infection was
so widespread that the pressure from the build up of pus on the
roof of his mouth literally perforated through his snout causing
the drainage of blood and pus! The pain he had to have been experiencing
would’ve been horrendous, yet he remained sweet doing the
dober lean. Surgery was a long three hours, and the exudates were
sent to pathology to ensure Bernie doesn’t have any additional
troublesome diagnoses. Unfortunately, pathology revealed a hidden
sarcoma above the wound he had. His lungs are still clear
so he will have a happy life in hospice with a wonderful family
for the rest of his days.
Needs if any: His future needs will be taken care of by DRNV.
Geographic areas for adoptions: Any state in the western part
of the U.S. as long as a home visit can be arranged. New adopters
must come to Nevada to meet the Doberman they wish to adopt and
bring with them any pet who lives in the home.
