We adopted 7 year old Taz in January 2020 from Doberman Rescue Minnesota. We were told he was a casualty of a tough divorce, and that he'd been left outside in a cage in the MN winters, where he almost starved to death. He was with his foster family for almost a year, and apparently he was passed over for adoption because he was too big. (He weighed a whopping 105 when we got him - foster love!) He has visible scars on his paws and legs, but he is incredibly sweet and affectionate, and great with little kids. Given his rough start, we were really grateful that he adjusted to his new home so quickly...and now we have an 85 pound lap dog!
