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.

Pappy is a big, cuddly 8 year old boy that was was surrendered because his owners had too many other dogs in the home. We are sad to report that Pappy has been diagnosed with DCM. Pappy didn’t get out much in his previous home, so he is fearful or riding in the car and being confined. He does well in the house without being crated. He’s house trained and knows basic commands. Pappy is playful but he can be stubborn, so you have to work to get his attention. He is good with other dogs and does well with kids. Due to his size he will do best with children 10 and older. No cats! Pappy is looking for a permanent foster home to give him his best life. His care will be paid for by Doberman Underground and subsidized by our Phoenix Fund.

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!
