UPDATE: 03-18-07 - My baby Nani went home to become a New Yorker. We drove
her 4 1/2 hours to start her new life.
She now has a smaller, but older sister
Mookie who promptly let Nani know that
she intended to be the boss. To my surprise Nani accepted her advice. Nani
now has a new Mommy & Daddy who love the
Doberman breed and have had them before.
She now has a 3/4 of acre to run and play on with her new electric fence
installed by the Petstop company. We feel safe knowing she has an excellent
system to protect her.

Even though I know I picked great parents for Nani --- leaving her was one
of the most difficult things I've done.
Even though I have loved and fostered
well over 275 pups and dogs in the last
3 years, I have loved this baby since she was 10 weeks old and she is about
to be 1 year old. I worried mostly that
she would grieve for me since I am all
she has ever known, but I was assured
six phone calls later that she is adjusting to her new family and new life. I have done my job and I am so
happy for my beautiful (which is what
Nani means) for baby girl that she will
now have the joy of being adored and
spoiled and given all the attention she
and all of them -- deserve.

UPDATE: Nani is a the most beautiful Doberman I have ever seen. We also had her two sister who are red --- but
no offense to them, she has always been the most beautiful to me. That is what her name means in Hawaiian.

Nani is deaf, she & her sisters were born that way due to the unscrupulous breeder of Doberman's here in Delaware. No one should ever purchase a dog from her! She was going to KILL these puppies because they were born deaf. That is when we took them into our rescue.

Nani just loves to be loved, she curls up on my sofa or my bed, tucks those long long legs of her under her and dreams her dreams.

We need to find her a family who will give her the time and love she deserves, that they all deserve.

She is extremely strong, plays very hard with all her foster brothers and sisters and I have seen her pin a few of the boys. I know she is an alpha female and I know she would kill cats. I also know she will guard your home and you -- because she does watch everything that goes on in my backyard.

Her deafness is not actually a handicap
except that she can not hear you when you call her. We all talk her, I have hand signals that her and I have worked out.

If you love Dobs, or just love big BEAUTIFUL dogs, then Nani might be the girl for you.

UPDATE: Nani went on a 5 day doggy play date to North Jersey with her weekend Playdate foster Mom. Everyone as always, fell in love with her beauty face, eyes and gentle spirit. She is a true cuddle bunny and loves nothing more then curling those long - long - long legs under her as she squeezes as close to you as she can on the sofa. She loves everyone and we all love her so much.

When she is outside with all her friends she plays and plays like the child she is, she comes in, crawls in her crate and takes a long nap.

We live near a softball field so there is a lot of activity around here and she watches everything. I believe she is very intelligent. We're hoping to find Nani her forever home where she will be someone's baby girl princess for the rest of her life.

UPDATE: Nani had her first weekend Playdate and this is what her foster Mom had to say about our beautiful pup:

Nani is currently learning how to walk well on a leash. She is a powerful girl but she does wonderful with a Gentle Leader collar. She is an exceptional jogging partner! She trots like a little filly right next to me without any tension on the leash.

She is very eager to experience the world and trots around wide-eyed, taking it all in as quickly as possible! She is a very loyal dog and she bonded with me after just one day! She follows me at my heels and she puts her head in my lap when I sit next to her. She is so trusting and sweet!

She is being taught American Sign Language hand signals such as sit, down, no and stay. Nani is extremely smart and very eager to please you with her good performance. I look forward to seeing her progress. She will make an amazing companion for someone with a big heart!

This lovely black purebred Doberman girl is named NANI (NAH-nee) which means beautiful. Nani is very smart, very loving, and other than her deafness --- she is perfectly normal.

We took Nani and her 2 sisters into our rescue back in May when we were told by a volunteer that a "back yard breeder" from Newark, DE was going to KILL these puppies because they were born deaf. They were born deaf due to her poor breeding standards. She moved here from Allentown PA where we have had numerous reports that she has been reported to the SPCA there many times.

Nani is my foster pup and her name fits her perfectly. I have always loved black dogs so I must admit they I think Nani is the prettiest of the pups. The foster Mom's of red pups may not agree.

These pups are exceptionally beautiful and large. They are all going to be 90 to 120 pounds. They are 6 months yet and they are all over 60 pounds! They have very long legs which makes them look like fillies when they prance and kick up their heels.

The girls do have sensitive stomaches so we have had them on Science Diet I/D food their whole lives and they may need that for sometime to come -- or perhaps forever.

We cannot place these girls in homes with children. Our reason is --- we NEED them to be adopted by families who can devote their time and love to them. For them, we feel the best thing would be that they are someone's baby. They will need to learn hand signals which we are making an effort at ourselves.

When I go outside -- I wave my arms at the girls and they come running. They are just too beautiful for words.

We also cannot place them in a home where someone works full time. As with our normal pups, we only adopt to people who work part-time because we do not believe in adopting to people who think it is OK to leave a pup in a crate all day. These girls need even more attention to training than an average pup.

I am also sure that Nani is an alpha female so I will not place her in a home with an Alpha female.

Now that these girls have been treated for the pathetic condition allowed by their breeder: severe parasites, dirt impacted ears initially causing balance problems, and have now had all their shots plus been spayed, they are healthy, happy, and growing at an amazing rate. Kila & Makana have been adopted but we would love some sponsors to help with the cost of preparing these wonderful girl Nani for her very special forever homes!

PLEASE NOTE: Any dog/pup adopted from us must have a fenced in property either physical or Electric Fence. The fence must be installed before we will proceed with processing an adoption application.

If you need a fence for your dog, but are not permitted to have a physical fence, or chose not to, please visit our friends at Pet Stop. Mention that you saw them at our website and they have promised to send us a donation to help our rescue work.
Please Note:
We do not adopt our puppies to people who work full-time. Part-time is OK. We do not believe in leaving infants in crates all day.

We also expect that if no one is home all day, arrangements will be made to provide the dog with at least (1) "potty break" daily. This can be through a family member, neighbor, or Petsitting service. We know that it is impossible for us humans to "hold it" for 8-10 hours, so we do not want our "shelter kids" to be expected to do so.

We have several Petsitting service companies that we can recommend:
