Gunner, red boy with Doberman Rescue LA

Doberman Rescue L.A. is the oldest Doberman Rescue in the country! It's a 501c-3 non-profit which was founded in 1968. They have a range of ages in their available dogs, and the dogs are always spayed or neutered before they go to their carefully screened homes.

This is Gunner. He's a natural eared red boy who was turned in to rescue when his family moved.

Gunner's age isn't listed, but they say he's "middle aged", which I'd say is probably 5-8? It's hard to make guesses, and this sweet boy doesn't have any gray hairs that I can see! His info says he walks well on a leash, and likes treats.

When I looked at their available dogs for who I'd make today's post about, I was struck by the quality of photography for some of them. I haven't noticed specific credit attribution, so I wonder if they have a professional photographer who volunteers to come in and take lovely pictures.

If you're interested in adopting Gunner, or any of their other available dogs, the adoption application for Doberman Rescue LA can be found here.


  1. Gunner is stunning! Hope he finds a forever home soon. Sharing.

  2. I just love when professional photographers donate their time to taking gorgeous photos of shelter dogs! So generous, and it really does help the dogs get adopted! I will share this, and keep my fingers crossed that Gunner finds the home he so deserves <3

    1. I love it to, and I think it really helps show the dogs' best faces.

      Thanks for sharing!

  3. Those really are wonderful photos, and definitely look professional. Gunner is very handsome and sounds like he has a great personality too. Sharing and hoping he finds a home soon.

  4. Those are some really beautiful photos of a very handsome fellow! Sharing.

  5. Hey, they finally updated their page! That is, I haven't checked in a very long time... but the last time I followed this rescue, the same five or six dogs were listed on the website for almost a year, so I assumed they had stopped. I'm glad they're active!
