Welcome!

Finding the Perfect Dobermann to Join Your Family Can Be Easy, But There’s Lots to Consider!

Adoption is about placing the right dog in the right home and is of paramount importance to us.  We don’t operate a ‘first come, first served’ policy and sometimes the right home for a particular rescue Dobermann takes a while to find.

We only accept dogs from UK dog pounds or homes and we only place dogs with adopters within the UK mainland.  We don’t take dogs in or place them overseas, including Ireland.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long does the process take?

The length of time it takes for someone to apply to adopt and have a new family member is variable.  It all depends whether we have a dog in our care who we feel is a good match for your family.  If that’s the case, it can be as quick as 1-2 weeks.  If not, we’ll add you to our wait list and we’ll be in touch as soon as we think we have a match for you.

How Much Does Adopting Cost?

Our adoption donations are non-negotiable and non-refundable and they vary depending on a number of factors.  We also ask for a donation towards the fuel costs for the volunteer who will bring your dog to your home.

What Is the Difference Between Adopting and Fostering?

Adoption is permanent.  When you adopt a dog you become the dog’s owner and are responsible for all of their care and vet bills.  If you are unable to care for your dog for any reason it must be returned to the rescue.  This is part of our adoption contract.

Foster homes are temporary.  When you foster a dog they are owned by Lincs Dobermann Rescue until such times as we choose a home for them.  All of the expenses for their care are paid for by Lincs Rescue.  

Can I take A Pet Home straight away?

No.  We do not allow members of the public or potential adopters to ‘view’ dogs at our kennels.  Often our dogs are in foster care in volunteer’s homes and this is not possible.  When you apply to adopt a dog we will match you to the dog we feel most suited to your circumstances and family and we’ll discuss that with you.  When the time is right, our rehoming volunteer and the dog will visit you at home to ensure a smooth transition.  If for any reason it doesn’t work out.  The dog will leave with the rehoming volunteer.

Introducing Oskar (3yrs)

Introducing Oskar (3yrs)

This handsome chap is with us through no fault of his own.  He is sociable with people, and dogs he meets out and about, but he is not suited to living with other dogs.  He travels well in a car.  He’s a bouncy boy that needs a bit of work on his general obedience, recall and loose lead walking.  He is crate trained and uses it at night, when left unsupervised in the home and when his humans are eating.

Meet and greet booked. Indy (9mths)

Meet and greet booked. Indy (9mths)

A young boy still full of puppy bounce and lacks manners when playing.  He does not settle well and so hasn’t been left alone in the home.  He is weary of strangers both when meeting them in the home or outside of the home, but after a sniff is accepting.  He has not been around children, cats, or livestock.  He’s plays well with other dogs but can be a little barky when meeting them on lead.

Meet and greet booked. Zeak (1yr)

Meet and greet booked. Zeak (1yr)

Through no fault of his own Zeak has arrived in our care.  He has had a couple of homes since arriving in the UK from Hungary.  He is not yet neutered, loves squeaky toys, chases cats, pulls on the lead and has not had contact with children but is friendly with all the adults he has met, although does jump up at first.  He can react to dogs when on lead but off lead but once off lead he loves to play with other dogs.

Introducing Baine (15mths)

Introducing Baine (15mths)

We know very little about this young man because of the way he came into our care.  He is nervous but appears to be a sweet natured boy around people.  He needs muscle tone building and a good quality food to help improve his coat quality.  He is currently under assessment.

Adoption pending. Quinzel (2yrs)

Adoption pending. Quinzel (2yrs)

This sweet little lady has recently had a litter of pups.  We know very little about her because of the way she came into our care, but she certainly seems to like to be around people.  She is currently under assessment.

Adoption pending. Fudge (3.5yrs)

Adoption pending. Fudge (3.5yrs)

We know very little about this lovely people friendly lady because of the way she came into our care.  She has been used for breeding.  She appears to have a calm and gentle nature.  She’ll need a controlled diet as she is a little over-weight, and her coat condition is not great.  She is currently under assessment.

Adoption pending. Introducing King (3yrs 3mths)

Adoption pending. Introducing King (3yrs 3mths)

Crated trained and can be left up to 4hrs.  He loves ball play.  Travels well in the car.  He has played nicely with dogs that he knows but on one occasion he pinned a puppy down.  He can walk nicely on lead but does pull on occasion (needs work) and barks at other dogs whilst on lead.  He’s not really been socialised around fast-moving objects (e.g. joggers, traffic, cyclists), or livestock but has been known to chase the odd cat or two.  He has proved to be unreliable around children, although the circumstance/triggers for this are unclear.

Introducing Brody (6mths)

Introducing Brody (6mths)

A needy boy who struggles to settle in the home, he’s not been left to his own devices but when his hoomans do leave the home for short 10-minute stints he watches at the window and howls.  When frustrated/anxious he chews things he shouldn’t.  His play biting is harsh and will need work.  Travels well in the car.  He is cautious around children.  Nervous around loud noises.  On lead he’s not really interested in other dogs, but if they come to meet him, he will sniff and then want to play.  He’s not been off lead around other dogs.  Moving objects (cats, joggers, cyclists) get him excited, the harsh play biting starts along with other behaviours that make walking on lead tricky.

Adoption pending. Lara (2yrs)

Adoption pending. Lara (2yrs)

A delicately built young lady –  it appears she has probably had a litter of pups.  She chews household and personal items, including walls, carpets, door, sofa, coats – we’ll have to work on this and get her crate trained.  She has displayed aggressive indicators towards strangers and other dogs, both on and off the lead.  She doesn’t like cats; she pulls on the lead and has no recall.   She has yet to be neutered.  In the little time we’ve spent with her it is clear she is a nervous dog.  She is currently under assessment and so these details may change – watch out for ‘introducing’ to change to ‘all about me’ indicating her assessment is complete.

Introducing Oscar (3yrs)

Introducing Oscar (3yrs)

A big strong lad who likes a quiet life as can react to unexpected noises and interactions – not suited to a home with young children.  Doesn’t chew household or personal items and can be left on his own for periods of time.  Hasn’t had any exposure to cats but does like to chase squirrels.  He is settled when travelling in a car.  Has some great basic obedience skills including recall.  He has only just joined us and so is only just starting his assessment and so these details may change – watch out for his ‘all about me’ when the assessment is complete.

Adoption Process

Step 1 – Please complete and return an Adoption Application.  On receipt we will contact you to discuss the content of your form and the profile of the dog we feel would be best suited to your lifestyle.

Step 2 – We will try to match prospective adopters with one of the Dobes in our care.  If we think we have matched your profile with one of our Dobes, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.  All members of the family and any other pets should be present at this meeting to ensure you can all get along. 

Step 3 – Adoption Day!  When our rehoming officer and matched dog have visited with you at home and both you and the rescue are happy to proceed with the adoption, we complete all of the paperwork and you are officially a Dobermann Owner! 

All of the Lincs Dobermann Rescue dogs are rehomed with an information pack containing details of their vaccinations, worming, microchip details, adoption contract, 4 weeks free insurance from PetPlan and we are always available to offer advice and support to guide you through your first few weeks.

Step 4 – Our rehoming officer will call after adoption to make sure that your Dobe is settling into their new routine and that everything is working out well.  We are always available to you for advice and guidance and of course, we LOVE receiving photos of our Dobies in their happy new homes.
