From our first point of contact with Lincs Dobermann Rescue they answered every time, it never went to voicemail.   It was a difficult situation as Diesel was owned by my daughter and her partner since he was a pup (he is now 4 and a half) but they were no longer together.  He was loved by all and whilst they were together manageable, but this then changed.  They decided between them that he needed to be rehomed and whilst it broke their hearts they knew as responsible dog owners it was the right thing to do.
After about a week and a half from the first conversation with Lincs, they came to collect Diesel.  I’d said my goodbyes the night before and left my daughter and her partner to say goodbye to him.   The house seemed empty that night not only of Diesel himself but everything that goes with owning a dog, the bowls, toys, bed, lead etc.  At that point we rang Lincs, who reassured us that he was fine, had travelled well and that he was a beautiful dog and would be stopping with Paula for a few days at least.
Over the next few weeks we rang weekly to see how he was getting on.  He was absolutely fine and they sent us some photos.  They said they would let him settle further before actively seeking a home for him, if they did not already have someone on their waiting list.
He is now living with someone who has had Dobies for a long time.  We have had photos and he does seem to be settling in well with a lovely big garden and the seaside close at hand.  
We could not have wanted more for him .  Nothing was rushed, the rehoming was done over a few weeks and we were right from the first phone call that we can ring anytime we want, I was worried about becoming a pain.
Overall our experience has been a positive one – and we cannot thank Lincs Dobermann Rescue enough – they have been there at the end of the phone reassuring us along the way.
Diesel is a lucky boy to have been found such a lovely home.  We miss him, of course, but this was done for him because we loved him so much.
