Sweet Eevie was one of the lucky rescued 116 Dobermans from a horrible puppy mill case in South Carolina. Our family adopted her on April 30, 2017 so our other Doberman, Dexter could have a playmate. Shortly after we adopted Eevie, Eevie started to exhibit issues walking, and was later diagnosed with wobblers. Eevie got special treatment for her wobblers and did quite a bit better for several months, and then sadly took a turn for the worst, and then we sadly had to say good-bye to her after 17 short months in September of 2018. Eevie has a Facebook page dedicated to her wobblers journey and all her followers and supporters I am still so grateful for all of you! Eevie was laid to rest in our back yard with our first rescued Doberman, Luke. Luke started our love for the breed when he was adopted in 2008 and passed in 2015. In late 2015, we rescued Dexter, a red Doberman on Craigslist whose owner had MS and could no longer care for him, and he is just a wonderful dog. We have since adopted another dog from Doberman Underground, Zoey who is 2 years old. We adopted Zoey shortly before Eevie passed, and they were great friends, and I know Zoey misses her and even looked for her when she was gone. Eevie has a very special place in our hearts and is missed, as she was truly a real rescued dog who came from a horrible situation and then lived like a princess during the time she was with us. After we adopted Eevie, I signed up to be a volunteer with the rescue. It is great to see all the dogs come in in all types of situations and then see them finally find their forever families. Eevie was not the most perfect looking dog, but that is what rescue is all about…find a dog who is broken and loving it no matter what. She had missing teeth and hair, scars and urinary issues that told a story of her hideous past. She loved her food and she loved to play with her bunny toy which I have with her memorial. She wasn’t a dog who would give kisses and was afraid of loud sounds, had head tremors from her trauma, and fearful at times, but I don’t blame her after all she had gone through! She was safe with us until we sadly had to say good-bye, which was one of the hardest things I have had to do just knowing she was only about 4 years old and I wanted so much more for her. Eevie did start to open up to us, but then sadly the wobblers hit her. I would have to carry her by a harness to help her outside to potty. She would lay on her bed and not be able to walk and it was just so sad to see, but I loved her and did everything I knew to do to give her a good life because she so deserved it! Forever in our hearts sweet Evelyn!
