Tuesday Tails: Sandy, with Illinois Doberman Rescue

This is Sandy:

(photo from Illinois Doberman Rescue web page)

She is an 8 year old fawn Doberman from North Carolina. She was surrendered to the Doberman Assistance Network by her owners, and transported to live with an Illinois Doberman Rescue foster.

At current, how she is with cats and kids is unknown, and it would seem Sandy would do best as an only dog. Having grown up an only child, I can relate!

Sandy does well in the car. She also has thinning hair, as a result of Color Dilution Alopecia. She is a sweet girl who is crate trained and apparently fine having her nails trimmed. She's also energetic for a "senior", and loves her tennis ball!

If you're interested in adopting Sandy, you can email orphandobe AT ameritech DOT net for more information. If you don't want to adopt Sandy but still want to help, you can visit her page on the Illinois Doberman Rescue web site and sponsor her.


  1. She's beautiful! I hope she doesn't have to wait too long.

  2. Sandy is stunning. So sad that her owners surrendered her after 8 years. Paws crossed she finds a furever home. Sharing.

  3. She's a beautiful dog. It seems unusual that they don't say how she relates to kids and cats. Usually copy for large dogs will say adult only or single pet household.

  4. Isn't she beautiful! She looks very regal in that middle photo, and just so sweet in the last one.
    This is my first time on your blog...Elka is absolutely adorable! I haven't met many Dobermans, but I always remember one I knew years and years ago that was just the sweetest dog. That was back in the days when Dobermans were treated the way PitBulls are now. That's why I've never bought into all that ridiculous stereotyping!

  5. What a regal lady. I hope she finds a really fantastic home.

  6. Sandy is quite a beautiful gal! So sad that she had to be surrendered after eight years with the same family, but glad they surrendered her to Doberman Assistance Network and didn't simply drop her at the shelter. Hopes and prayers that she finds the just the right new home.
    Will definitely share!

  7. Her eyes are direct and confident as is her bearing. Lovely lady. Wouldn't like my home - too many other dogs but know she'll find the right one for her!

  8. OMD! What a regal lookin' gurl!! Wows, I'm sure with a face like that she will find her self a homes in no time at alls!!!
