Meet Miss Uma!!

Miss Uma is a TV-WatchDobeLady... she wants to be sure it's on!!

If you are looking for a partner to join you for binge watching TV through these cold winter months then Uma is your girl! This beautiful Senior Lady at 10 years old is very well mannered and a huge fan of the Cooking Network. After finding herself without a home when her owner passed away, she was lucky enough to be rescued by Illinois Doberman Rescue and is now back to living the good life with plenty of yummy food, comfy couches, and lots of TV time. Not much is know about her history but she is good with other dogs and doesn’t seem much interested in the resident cat in her foster home. She is good with kids but would be more comfortable around kids 7 and older. She knows all her basic commands and is a magnificent house guest as there is no need to crate her when she’s left alone in the home. Health-wise she doesn’t need anything except two inexpensive medications to treat pretty common thyroid and incontinence issues. Uma likes her meds best when they are wrapped in cheese! Her coat is a little rough from either bad nutrition or spending too much time outdoors. Uma is a fantastic girl who dreams of having a comfy couch and family of her own to snuggle with and spend her last years with.

Special Needs if any: Inexpensive thyroid and incontinence meds.

Geographic areas: Illinois and the surrounding states.

General Contact Information: Illinois Doberman Rescue will place Dobes in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, or Wisconsin. See contact info above or go to IDR's website at for adoption information and application.


The Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet, medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about this program on the Sponsor A Senior page.

Dear Miss Uma is looking for a sponsor! The cost to sponsor a Senior Dobe is $40 per month or $480 per year. You can sponsor a Senior for one month, one year, or somewhere in between. To sponsor Miss Uma, use the PayPal button below or visit the Sponsor A Senior page for instructions on sending a check. Thank you for any help you can give, it is MUCH appreciated!
