About Us

About Our Rescue

Our Founder and Chairman, Paula De vries started a group on Facebook as Lincs Dobermann Club in 2015.  This was a forum for fellow Dobie owners to meet and chat. 

Paula was very quickly asked to assist in the rescue and rehoming of Dobies which confirmed the need to set up the Lincs Dobermann Rescue charity which was officially constituted in April 2017.  With this it meant the need to increase the team numbers.

Although Lincolnshire based, we travel the length and breadth of the UK to help Dobies and families in need.

We are a non-profit organisation, all our team donate time and effort to ensure that no Dobie is left in need and that they all have a successful rescue and rehoming journey. 

We rely on the support and generosity of our members to raise the funds we need to provide veterinary support to our Lincs dogs to ensure that when our Dobie is rehomed, they are in good health and that their rehoming journey is as stress free as possible.

We have a saying, “once a Lincs dog, always a Lincs dog”. It is so important for the dog and the new owner that they have the knowledge and confidence that rescue back up is there for them if they need it. This really underpins the values of Lincs Dobermann Rescue

PENDING ADOPTION.  Introducing Blue (4yrs)

PENDING ADOPTION. Introducing Blue (4yrs)

A pretty, people friendly girl – she gets over excited when there are visitors to her home, but out and about is cautious and likes to greet people in her own time.  She has lived with other dogs, but when meeting new ones, she can be a little timid especially if they want to play chase.  Will travel but does periodically become unsettled.  Her tail was docked in 2020 following a infected cut.  She is currently under assessment, these details will be updated once the assessment is complete.

Rita (2 – 3 yrs)

I am very, very special girl and Lincs are helping me find a very, very special someone to give me a furever home. You can see my story on my fb page – it’s called Rita ( Please email: if you are my special, special someone.

  • I’ve had the toughest of starts in life; found on a rubbish dump in a far-off land with injuries which have changed my life.
  • Lots of amazing people raised the funds so that I could get the surgery I needed on my fractured leg and spine and then come to the UK to look for a furever home
  • Now I’m ‘doubly’ incontinent and so will always have to wear these fancy ‘couture’ pants, but that’s Ok, I’m used to them now (I know the drill and co-operate) and let’s face it they offer endless possibilities in colours and patterns and will look very pretty on your washing line.
  • My exercise has to be controlled because I’m still gaining mobility and strength in my back and legs; my kind foster mum is ace at helping me with this ‘cause she has a special pool for treating this sort of thing and she has said that she will continue with this special treatment FOC to whom ever is lucky enough to adopt me, but you would have to be prepared to drive to the Binbrook, Lincolnshire area to benefit from this offer.
  • I love my crate which has a special bed and covers; I settle in it at night and when my foster hooman has to go out.
  • I like to sunbathe and steal my big bros toys just when he thinks he’s going to play with them, and well, then I like to take them to my bed and play with them – playing is great.
  • I’m a little bit protective of my food; I just give a bit of a growl if another dog walks by, but I don’t mind if my foster mum wants to take it off me.
  • I’d like a decent sized garden to stretch my legs, someone who will be adaptable when training me because I can’t do all the usual stuff that I see other doggos do, and someone who is happy to take me for gentle walks and to new places that I can explore.
  • I can live with other dogs, but cats…nope never heard of them before
  • I think I’m probably famous as I have my own Facebook page, it’s called Rita 😊 and if my new family want they can take it over and continue to share my story as I progress thorough life.

PENDING ADOPTION. All about me – Liesl (3yrs 9mths)

  • I was very nervous of my foster hooman and surroundings when I first arrived.  I did do wee wee’s in the house even when the door was open so that I could go outside, however 2 days in, and I’ve got used to my new home and so now I use the appropriate place.
  • I’m scared of alarms, especially the one on the cooker and washing machine, but I have overcome my fear of the microwave and it’s ping.  My foster mum has been trying to help me with these things but it takes time and so I’ll need more help with this.
  • I am accepting of other dogs and will play a little once I get to know them but really, I’m quite happy doing my own thing.
  • My recall is pretty good but when I get spooked (which I seem to do at least one/walk) I run off and hide, but with my hooman in sight – when I’m ready I return (tracker advised).
  • I’m very food driven but will require patience as I start to understand, and act on basic commands.
  • I’ve not lived with children but have been around them and am told I was a good girl.
  • I have lived with cats. I liked my cats but others not so much.  I’m trying to tolerate the ones in my foster home and as the days go by I’m becoming more accepting of them…except when I see them outside.
  • I’m quite good at loose lead walking, I do sometime want to pull towards things I find interesting but I’m don’t pull like an over excited train…if there is such a thing.
  • I like my crate especially at night or for a rest when I’m feeling a little anxious as it makes me feel safe.

What We Do

Rescuing Animals

When any Dobermann is abandoned in a council dog pound, we’re there to rescue them and keep them safe.

Rehoming Support

We provide support to people who are unable for any reason to keep their Dobermann and need to find a new home for them.

Spay & Neuter

We ensure that all our dogs are spayed or neutered prior to rehoming unless there’s a medical need which prevents it

Finding A Home

We spend huge amounts of time and effort to match each dog in our care to the most appropriate home we can find.

£35 Saves a Life

Every single pound you donate goes directly to the support and care of the dogs we rescue and rehome.  

Your contributions will be used to pay for veterinary treatments, food, kenneling fees and rehabilitation & training for the Dobes in our care.

Adopt & Foster

We have dogs coming in all the time please familiarise yourself with our adoption procedures and complete an application to Adopt or to Foster if you can offer a loving home to one of the dogs in our care, either temporarily or permanently
