Our Dear Greta

Dobermann Greta

Jude writes: “Greta was adopted as a young “lady” last year to be a friend for an eight-year-old dobe. She was unfortunately too energetic and demanding for him, and for many other dogs as well as a few humans. Plus she needs Proin for some urinary leakage- not unusual in spayed dobes. So she’s back. She is about 1-1/2 to 2 years old, and is needing a bit of slimming which is happening. She weighs 88 pounds and we will get her down to 75 by hook or by crook! (update 2/15 weight was 77 pounds) She’s a housepet, as are all our Dobies, likes some other boy dogs (not particularly black dogs for some reason) but she is a major female dobe and prefers to boss them around. She loves her Blue Buffalo dry and canned meals twice a day and her beef marrow bone at night. She’s spayed, vaccinated, microchipped. on on heartworm preventative. The application is on the link above.”

Please submit acompleted application to Jude at FDPRR and we will go from there.

Beautiful Dobermann Greta

On January 15, 2014 Greta was having a radiographic test to determine if she had an issue with misplacement of the urethra causing the urinary issues she’s had. The veterinarian called and said our sweet Greta had a reaction to the dye and crashed. They worked on her for 40 minutes with CPR, drugs, and compressions and 8 times with cardiac electropaddles and could not get her heart functional again.

We are devastated.

About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
