CYBERDOPTIONS: Dogs in need/ special needs

 On this page are the "cyber dogs" for those who can't house a dog of their own, but would like to help.  You can "adopt" temporarily a Doberman on this page by donating to his/her cause and getting periodic updates and photo's of the dog you're "cyberdopting".  It's all the benefits (or as close as you can come) to "owning" one of these Dobermans without actually having one.

Donations will be used to buy the "extra's" for these dogs, whatever extra needs they have, be they specialty shampoo's, thick quilts, orthopedic mattresses, special foods, special diet needs, vet needs over and above what basic needs are covered,  The foster parent who are physically housing "your" dog will happily converse with you and you can possibly follow the dog even after it's adopted.

Some dogs on the cyberdoptions page may be termed as "hospice" dogs which means we have no intention of permanent placement due to health issues or advanced age but the dog WILL remain with the foster home until it's death......

ADAPT reaches out to ALL Dobermans in need.  We're not "just" about a pretty face.........

Contact us if you are interested in Cyberdoption.

The fawn girl is Hope, because we HOPED she'd live through the first night, and Faith is named because she believed someone would come and save them both.  Emaciated, (20-25 pounds underweight) major skin issues these girls are CLEARLY bonded to one another and are delicate, sweet and full of affection.  Hope has a healing compound fracture of her back leg that has a bone infection that we have to address as soon as we restore her weight and health, Hope as well as Faith will need spay.  Hope's leg will need amputation but right now they're beautiful, safe, loving and VERY much loved in the wonderful home of Bill and Cathy and their four legged babies.  These girls need a LOT of vet attention and we've been questioned once again WHY we would accept two such dogs in obvious need, and once again, our answer is, how could we not.........  Their presence blesses US and we are lucky to have these girls.  Once all their medical needs are addressed we have big plans to place both girls TOGETHER in a loving home for the rest of their lives...... If you have a little extra this year and want to close out 2010 with a good deed, PLEASE consider helping with the vet bills for these ladies.  Stay tuned for more updates and sweet photo's..........

"WHY would a rescue group pull a dog like this"we're asked.  We respond "why wouldn't we"  Tasanni was a stray who was headed downhill in the shelter as she waited for her stray hold to be up.  That she had clearly given up was evident in her body language as she laid tightly curled into a ball, her emaciated frame on the damp cement, oblivious to the two doggie roomates sharing her kennel at the shelter. 

Tasanni was skin and bones, but when I took her from the shelter she walked with her head down and she was thinking we were taking her to kill her.  I took her outside and she picked up her head and had a little interest in her eyes.  I kneeled down and put my arms around her and gave her treats.  She has NO front teeth, somebody wasn't really nice to this little girl but she is SO sweet, and is SO grateful for anything and everything and is NOW an eating machine.  We have to feed her slowly because we can't chance bloating, but she eats about 6-8 times a day, small home cooked meals of boneless chicken and rice, and ground beef and all that good stuff.  I have spent a FORTUNE on vitamins, and all kinds of shampoos, vetting and all on her but she is SOOOO worth it.  Even the vets were saying "my GOD Margaret what were you thinking this time" and I tell them "you'll see" and within MINUTES they see...... she's something special.  Her eyes are bright and she's so loving....... I am SO glad I took her.  I won't/don't regret it. 

Believe it or not the Tasanni type dogs are what makes me happiest.  They are survivors, they BELIEVE in us even after we've done THAT to them.  She wags her tail, she gives kisses, she's out and about with the other dogs, she's happy and she'll be a drop dead GORGEOUS girl one day soon.  I am able to see the beauty in dogs that look like her when everyone else thinks they should be put down.  How no one could go looking for this special girl still amazes me.  How no one could SEE her beauty doesn't so much amaze me because we are after all usually only after "obvious" beauty in this world......  What amazes me is despite all that she's been through and as sick and skinny and MISERABLE as she is, she still is grateful to be saved, grateful for every pat and every hug, grateful for food, and the comfort of a blanket.....

She's an affectionate, inordinately sweet little girl who is housebroken, tolerant of dogs, cats, and though mankind wasn't kind to her, she LOVES people.  Her tail wags today as she slowly puts on weight and as we deal with her skin issues and heal her from the inside out.  Tasanni will be in our care for awhile obviously, but we'll post periodic updates so you can see the giant steps in recovery.....

 

 


September 2010- Update

This is the picture of Tasanni today, showing the effects of much love, good food, warm baths and a little medicine. THIS is the dog we knew was hiding in the shell of the sick emaciated body that was first pictured. There is beauty in everything, sometimes we have to search for it, and sometimes with a little hard work we are rewarded with the beauty within...

Tasanni has a new home and family and lives her days as a spoiled diva..
