Permanent Foster Program
The primary mission of our rescue is to rescue dogs in need regardless of their current physical condition. Some of these dogs are deemed unadoptable due to long term health issues. DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy), cancer, wobblers, and liver issues to name just a few.
Many have been abandoned at shelters or left out in the wild because the cost of care was prohibitive, or their owners did not want to deal with them. All of these dogs deserve to live their best life for the rest of their time with us. As long as we can keep them pain-free and happy they will never again know what it is like to be unloved, alone and abandoned.
In our Permanent Foster Program, these special dogs will live with a special foster family who loves them and care for them for the rest of their days.

Sora came to Doberman Underground, and everything seemed normal, with the exception of a thyroid issue, which is common in Dobermans. Suddenly she was urinating her bed nightly and vomiting. After a thorough vet workup, it was determined that Sora was in Renal Kidney Failure and cannot concentrate her urine as most other dogs can. This condition can also occur in humans. Sora requires special food that puts less stress on her kidneys. She is also taking Prion, Thyroid meds, and Calcitriol.
The annual cost of Sora’s’s medication is $2560.00 Please consider sponsoring Sora to help us keep up with her costly medications.
Somewhere in Kentucky, in the middle of nowhere, in a town no one has ever heard of, Scout lived her life outside in a kennel for almost 4 years until she was “sold” because she wasn’t able to breed. She came to Doberman Underground, had her vetting, and everything seemed normal…until it wasn’t. Scout started leaving her foster mom lakes of urine. Not rivers, not streams…LAKES! And so the work up began. After several thousand dollars, it was determined that Scout has an issue called Diabetes Insipidus or Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone. This has absolutely nothing to do with blood sugar. Scout cannot concentrate her urine like most other dogs can. This condition can also occur in humans. Scout gets twice daily injections of a hormone called Desmopressin. Her foster mom would like to tell you it’s smooth sailing and that there are no more lakes of urine, but some days when she gets home from work or wakes up in the morning, there is still Lake Scouty. But she cheerfully states that is nothing a mop and Odoban won’t fix! Scout is very loving and normal in every other way. She has several nicknames, like Scouty Pouty Pants and Scouty Pouty Fresh n Fouty. We affectionately say it’s a good thing Scout is pretty because she isn’t all that smart. But she is most certainly worth all the work. Just ask her foster mom, who loves her so much!
The annual cost of Scout’s medication is $1862.00 Please consider sponsoring Scout to help us keep up with her costly medications.
11 Year old Gretchen came to Doberman Underground when her owners were being evicted and couldn’t keep her. She was very skinny and had almost no hair on her back. She had a stubborn eye infection and her skin was infected from severe flea infestation. She had great difficulty walking, and stumbled every couple of steps. Over the course of many weekly vet visits, she was put on Thyroid meds, Rimdyl, Proin and Mira Coat. Thanks to the love and care from her foster parents, Gretchen is now a happy girl who loves going for nightly walks with her dad and hanging out with him when he serenades her with his guitar. Her foster mom tells us that Gretchen loves attention, and if she doesn’t pet her enough, Gretchen will smack her with her paw to remind her to keep it up. The first thing she sees in the morning is Gretchen’s wagging tail. Gretchen is an absolute delight. She is happy and healthier than ever. She is very fortunate to be living a wonderful life now.
