From their website:
Duchess is very much enjoying living inside for the first time. She gets along well with other male dogs and cats, but not with other female dogs. She also does well with older children, but will not be rehomed with smaller ones. Duchess LOVES to play with her foster brother and has taken to living inside well. She is potty trained, has good manners and is eager to learn and would enjoy some obedience training.
Duchess was born on September 5, 2008 and is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her shots. Because they don't mention it, I assume she's heartworm negative and negative for tickborne diseases and whatnot.

If you wonder about her ears, they are cropped and standing; Duchess just holds them folded like that pretty frequently. It's a thing Elka will do, in moments of stress and moments of joy. From what I can tell, from one of the members of Doberman Talk who participated in her initial transport, she's a good sweet girl who was probably undersocialized, and so there are some situations which make her nervous, which is part of why her home criteria are what they are.
Georgia Doberman Rescue is a 501(c)3 pending organization; they were founded in February 2014, and the IRS paperwork takes 3 to 6 months to clear once it's been turned in. The board of directors seems to be comprised of passionate people who want to do all they can for the Doberman breed, and as a rescue they follow the DPCA Rescue Code of Ethics.
If you are interested in adopting Duchess and feel your home fits the criteria, you can read about the adoption procedures on this page. They do have an application to be filled out, they do check references, and they do a home check and meet and greet before a board review (all the things you want a reputable organization to do!).
