Adopted – Miss Norwich (aka Dixie) – 8yrs 4mths

This girl will make someone a wonderful companion – she’s always got her happy face on.  All she really needs is a comfortable bed to rest on, a decent sized garden to play, run and sniff in, a human to give her a fuss, and to be the only dog in the home.

She is currently in foster care whilst we try to find her a forever home, unfortunately if we don’t find one soon, she may have to go into kennels whilst we continue to find her special human/s.

There are some heart-warming photos and videos in her album on our Facebook page: Dobies at Lincs Dobermann Rescue | Facebook

  • People:  has been friendly with everyone she has met / no issues when taken to vet for a full ‘once over’ – the vet said “she’s lovely” / there were no problems giving her a bath
  • Other dogs: on lead – likely to snap if another dog gets in her space…this might come without warning / off lead – unknown / we tried to put her into foster care with 2 other Dobies (neutered male and female) but this did not work out and so she will be homed as an only dog / has been off lead with another Dobie (male) on opposite side of the fence – she decided he was worth a sniff through the fence and appeared comfortable with him (video available)
  • House trained
  • Traffic:  not bothered by passing traffic
  • Tail spinning: demonstrated this a lot when she first arrived but this has calmed down a bit – she does do it when she’s on her own – an antler or horn inside helps stop this, it will stop outside if entertained with a football
  • Sleeps:  a bit ‘whittery’ at first but settled and remained in a room on her own overnight whilst she was in foster care until she was got up at 7am
  • Crate trained: unknown
  • Home alone:  we believe that she can be left for a few hours based on the fact that she is fine on her own at night & when the foster carers leave her in the house to work out on the small holding, she doesn’t destroy anything, and they’ve not heard barking
  • Cats:  untested
  • Livestock:  foster carer has donkeys – she is relaxed around them; inquisitive but does not react to them (photo available)
  • Likes:  a good fuss from her hoomans

Health check at vets on 20.02.24

  • skin/fur:  coat is patchy but shines. Special shampoo has helped – fosterers continue to bath her with this. Her tail down one side doesn’t have a lot of hair on it and is a bit flaky but no sores (may have had) but is improving
  • may have had at least one litter of pups
  • heart: no issues detected
  • mastitis: had antibiotics and infection now cleared up, teats should return to normal over time
  • weight: she is overweight.  Weight on 20.02.24 = 39.4kg / target weight is 35kg
