In January 2012, I lost my first doberman, Jamie, to cancer. It was a complete shock and I had her for 10 years.  After losing her, I asked my vet for a referral to adopt a Doberman in a rescue organization. He recommended Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue and that was the best decisions I had made regarding getting another “Dobie”… Soon afterwards, I contacted them and after filling out an application, they sent a...

I reached out to DHDR interested in adopting an adult female that I found on their page.  The dog that peaked my interest was no longer available, but through the application and discussion process DHDR volunteers were able to steer me to the perfect dog for me.  I adopted Lexi (Ripley) in February, 2012 and she was everything I was looking for!  She was just shy of 8 months old, housebroken and a bundle of energy/love.  This dog is my...

My name is Subin and when I was stationed at Luke Air Force Base, I was really interested in dobermans and the types of dogs that they are.  After researching, I found the Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue through Google.  I met Sidney and Cat and volunteered on my weekends to walk the dogs and give them company.  Then one day I met Dom (Snoop) and I wanted to be his friend and companion.  He was scared and always avoided me and did not want...

Our experience with Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue was very good and obviously rewarding.  We were interviewed and that went very smoothly as we have been doberman owners for over 30 years. We knew what to expect, and the interviewer was very thorough.  We met and interacted with Holly’s foster family and once again they were EXCELLENT.  I would highly recommend that anyone that wishes to own a Dobe, check out this group, it will be...

My husband and I adopted Roxy three and half years ago from Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue and couldn’t have been more thrilled with the process. The care and the screening they go through assures that these rescue Dobies are going to the best homes possible.  I grew up with dobermans and knew I wanted to give a special girl a good home.  Roxy (it’s estimated) was 2 years old when we got her and now at 5+ still has the same...

Venus is DHDR’s first rescue.  Venus came to me 3 weeks after I lost my Doberman, Athena, to bloat.  My male Doberman,Thor, needed a buddy and they became great friends.   We think Venus is probably between 7 and 8 years old now and such a special dog. She is is Certified Therapy Dog and does competition obedience and is so smart and is now competing at the highest level.  Sadly we lost Thor but she now shares our home with Sedona...

“It has almost 2 months since I adopted Lola from the Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue of Arizona. I knew I wanted to rescue my next dog, but I also was hoping for a Doberman; I found the perfect match. I found Lola on petfinder.com and contacted the Doberman rescue group with my information. Their communication was prompt and they got the ball rolling right away. Their procedure with the adopter was extensive, but appropriate for any...

“This is a heartfelt message to anyone out there who may be “debating” about whether to adopt a Doberman. If you have doubts, you obviously have not contacted Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue. They have the experience and the love it takes to place these dogs properly in their “forever homes.” I gave a home to a precious pup they saved from being euthanized because she was in very poor health. After extensive vet...

“My husband found Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue online and saw Jake’s picture. He found himself very taken with Jake and kept going back to check him out. One morning he sent me the picture & link, already knowing what my answer would be. 🙂 This was the first step of our fantastic experience in adopting Jake. The process at DHDR is organized, thoughtful, and everyone we came in contact with during the adoption process was...

“When we came to your home and met Madison, it really was love at first sight. DHDR found out that this girl was kept in a bathroom alone for five days a week, and understood that a third operation for eating an 18 inch tube sock was her last cry for help. You answered. After getting her that $2,500 life-saving surgery, you started the search for somebody who would give Maddy the active, mentally stimulating life she deserved.  Thank...

“We had had three Dobermans in our life. Our last Doberman passed away about a year prior to our contacting DHDR. You worked with us to identify a 19-month-old male Dobie we wanted to take a look at, and brought the dog to us after we had completed your application process. You truly make sure the people who want to rescue a Doberman really understand the challenges and requirements for these wonderful dogs. You did a great job...
