Welcome to doberman911.org, the website for Special Needs Dobermans (SND). We are an organization of people with a common goal of helping senior and special needs Dobermans. That need may be financial or it may be only information and/or moral support for the owner of a Doberman with a serious illness or injury. These Dobermans may be in rescue programs or they may already be much loved companions with a special need. We will also aid Rescue Groups in rehoming and fostering senior Dobermans. The financial aid we provide may come from donations, online auctions or SND Store sales. Every precaution will be taken to assure that the need is real.

Special Needs Dobermans and the The Doberman Digest recognize the difficulty in placing aging Dobermans in loving homes. Doberman rescue groups have worked tirelessly to save and care for these precious creatures, and we would like to help you find them forever homes. We are working with The Doberman Digest, a national Doberman fancy magazine, to publicize the plight of senior Dobes in addition to creating a national database and website dedicated to senior Dobes in need of families. Special Needs Dobermans will provide the website and Doberman Digest will regularly commit space in their bimonthly magazine to publicizing these senior Dobes needs. The Doberman community is truly reaching out to address this crucial cause. Please visit our page at www.doberman911.org/seniors. Find out what's being done to help our senior friends!
**** Meet the SDP's Senior of the Week!! ****
Seven year-old Lady Sasha was surrendered to rescue because her family had to move to an apartment and they could not take a Doberman. She needs to lose about 20 pounds (so what? don't many of us... :)), so has been put on the infamous green bean diet along with a thyroid supplement for hypothyroidism. She has been overweight for so long her right front paw has some calcium build up and she walks with a slight limp. This will improve as she loses the extra pounds. She is a sweet girl and is great with older kids but is not crazy about being hugged by the smaller ones. She is wonderful with other dogs both small and large, cats, and even horses. Sasha would make a wonderful companion for anyone who doesn't have very small children. To learn more about Sasha visit her page at http://doberman911.org/seniors/cases/oh_sasha.html.
You can learn more about Miss Sasha and many other Seniors who need your support by going to http://www.doberman911.org/seniors/cases. Here you can also help Doberman rescues across the country with their Seniors by sponsoring a Senior Doberman for $40 per month or $480 per year. Our goal is to encourage Rescues to take in more Seniors by helping them with the day to day expenses for routine medical care or just extras like nice comfy beds and toys to make their golden years the best yet. It's a great way to honor the life's of these older Dobermans, many of whom never knew love or care during their younger years.
If you have any questions about Miss Sasha or any of our other beautiful Seniors, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support!!
Special Needs Dobermans and The Doberman Pinscher Magazine have teamed up to place a special focus on fundraising efforts to assist Senior Dobermans with their medical needs. Having provided a lifetime of love, devotion, and loyalty, these Seniors now find that they are faced with increasing debilitating medical problems. These loving seniors may be with a rescue group and seeking a forever homes or they may be privately owned. Since the financial burden of providing necessary medical treatments is sometimes beyond the means of their caregivers, they have applied to SND for financial assistance. While SND lists Seniors in Need both on our Newest Cases and on our Still In Need, The Doberman Pinscher Magazine helps Seniors by reaching out to the Doberman community by raising funds for the Seniors Medical Fund, devoting space to Senior Health issues and highlighting Seniors in Need. These are four beautiful Seniors who have benefited from this great program:
