Doberman Pinscher Rescue & Referral
of Michigan
No one dog can do it all but when it comes to all around ability and eagerness to please, none comes closer than the Doberman
Pinscher. Few breeds have served man, and woman with more enthusiasm. The Doberman truly is a breed apart.

If you have adopted one of these noble creatures or are thinking of doing so, it is important that you know exactly what to expect  
having such a powerful, physically active and generally fearless animal under your charge, and that you understand exactly what is
expected of you as its master, best friend, teacher, and provider. One should thoroughly research the breed before bringing home
an animal that will depend on you to know what is best for it. You may find that the Doberman is not a breed for you. Are you
living in an apartment, mobile home, trailer? Then this is not the dog for you. Do you have small Children under seven years old or
expecting soon? Again, this may not be the breed you are looking for. More often than not, Doberman Pinschers end up in shelters
simply because the owner thought leaving their infant child or toddler alone with their Doberman is a good idea, then blames the
dog when something bad happens..

The Doberman needs plenty of room for exercise and a well fenced yard with no loose boards or areas where it could dig under.
You do not want to lose your dog. You should also have your dog micro-chipped.

Proper feeding and regular grooming is essential. The Doberman Pinscher should be on a high quality, grain free diet. The food
should be soaked to prevent bloat, see our Dobie Health page for a link to identifying the symptoms of bloat. Every owner of a
deep chested breed should know the signs as there is limited time to get your dog to a vet in order to save its life.

This website is for adoptions as well as helpful tips, advice, and reference for every owner of a Doberman Pinscher. Our volunteers
have over 100 years of combined Doberman Pinscher experience. With proper care, feeding, and quality of life, your Doberman
can live a long, happy life dedicated to pleasing it's master.
Doberman Pinscher Rescue & Referral is sad to have lost one of the best
advocates for Doberman Rescue that we will ever know
Our Director Christa Pfeiffer has sadly passed away.
She is loved,respected and will be greatly missed by all.

Because of the illness,diagnosis,and death of Christa,
we have not been as active as we should have been in the past year
This does not mean an end to our rescue. We will be updating this website soon as even this has been neglected
during this time. It does however mean that we are in need of volunteers that can foster,help transport dogs to and
from our veterinarian office,and help with fund raising. Fosters are not responsible for any costs required for the
dog in their care,they only need to provide care,love, and attention. We do require foster volunteers to have a
fenced yard.We supply everything needed such as Crates,food,treats,beds,toys,and most of all vet care. We prefer
volunteers that have experience with the Doberman breed but will gladly accept any volunteers that are willing to
join us. If interested or want more information please send an email to John@dobermanrescueofmi.net
Thank you, Rest in Peace Christa Pfeiffer you were a true champion for rescue.
