Our policy does not allow adoptions out of our area.
You must live within a 5-hour drive of Dallas/Fort Worth to adopt from us.

Doberman Rescue of North Texas places unwanted or abandoned Doberman Pinschers in loving homes. Most of the Dobermans we rescue come from shelters in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Each dog is examined by a veterinarian, given all vaccinations, tested for heartworms, spayed or neutered, treated for any illnesses or medical problems that are found, and microchipped. Without exception, all dogs are spayed or neutered before they are adopted. The dogs come to live at Doberhof, our home in Grand Prairie, while waiting for adoption. Most dogs are between one and two years of age, but sometimes we have puppies and more mature dogs.

Happy Endings

We not only help dogs, we also help people. Sometimes it's someone who met a Doberman as a child and couldn't shake the strong connection they felt with the breed. Other times, it's families grieving from a recent loss. Still others want to learn more about the breed. Our volunteers spend time with each potential adopter, share stories, explain the personalities of each dog, and help adopters figure out what dog is best suited to their home. In each case, we get the pleasure of seeing faces light up as a new best friend is found. Here are a few heartwarming stories.

Chisholm came to us from the Oklahoma City shelter, where he was going to be euthanized for lack of space. He waited for 9 months before the right home was found in April 2012 and is now happily residing in Dallas, four smaller dogs, and a cat. Renamed Chance, "French for 'luck,'" his new owners say, he goes to work every morning with his dad.

Doby came to us from StrayDog rescue in January 2012. Renamed Hank, he enjoys the pool with his new family in DFW.

Laura found her new home in April and goes to horse shows with her owner.

In 2012, we placed 120 Dobermans in new homes!
