Get Social with Doberman Underground
Who is Doberman Underground?
We are a foster based rescue. We do not have a facility. All of our dogs are in foster homes located in Ohio and West Virginia. We adopt out to Ohio and surrounding states within a 6 hour drive of Columbus, OH. We do consider other areas, but that is dependent upon our ability to get a home visit completed. Adopters will need to travel to the area where the dog is being fostered or event is being held. Unless the applicant meets the dog at an event, an applicant needs to be approved through the adoption process before meeting dogs.
Our adoption costs:
$400 - PUPPIES. Up to 6 months
$350 - ADULTS 7 Months TO 2 YRS
$300 - ADULTS 3 YRS to 6 YRS
$250 - SENIORS 7+
What is included in an adoption fee?
The adoption fee offsets the costs incurred in the rescue and medical treatment while in our care. All dogs are:
Additional adoption info:
Adopters must own the property where the adopted dog will reside (i.e. not living at home with parents, etc.).
We prefer to adopt to families with physical fences, however we do realize that alot of communities do not allow fences of any structure. So we do allow adoptions to some homes without fences based on experience level of the applicant and the drive of the dog you may be interested in.
It is our policy that we do not to adopt out to homes with existing intact dogs (male or female). Whether or not you decide to spay/neuter your dog is your own decision. But we have made it our policy not to adopt our dogs into homes with intact dogs. .
We prefer not to place our dogs in homes with very young children. Dobermans are generally large, active dogs and can easily knock down or run over a small child. However, we take into account experience level of the applicant and the energy level of the dog you may be interested in.
Adopters will sign an Adoption Contract. It requires, that the owner keep the dog up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm prevention, medical care and yearly veterinary exams. We also require that if the new owners should for ANY reason not be able to keep and care for the Doberman, the dog MUST be returned. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Rescue dogs are a work in progress. We encourage our adopters to enroll in an obedience class with their new Doberman. This is helpful in building confidence for both dog and owner.
