​About Us


Sweet Home Doberman Rescue (SHDR) is the only 501c3 not for profit Doberman rescue organization in the state of Alabama. Founded in 2015, SHDR is committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of abused, abandoned, and/or neglected Dobermans. It is SHDR's personal mission to assist this magnificent breed in any way we can. 


We are also dedicated to educating the public as well as future Doberman owners about this majestic, often misunderstood breed. They are often portrayed as aggressive dogs who will attack at a moment's notice when in fact they are Velcro dogs who are loyal, protective, and want to please their family!  A Doberman wants nothing more than to be by your side and on your couch. 

We have recently opened our doors to German Shepherd Dogs, who have a special place in our hearts as well. They are also a very misunderstood breed who would benefit from our extensive knowledge on the breed so we can educate the public as well as rescue, rehabilitate, and place abused, abandoned, and neglected GSDs. 

Dog of the Month


Blanche is the dog of the month!  

Blanche came into rescue in rough shape. She has come a long way and is feeling much much better. Blanche is a sweet sweet girl, it may take just a little time to know you are ok. Once you earn her trust she will show you her love. Blanche is just a quiet gal who likes to nap in her kennel, play with other dogs, enjoys calmer kids, and likes  to nudge her foster mom for some loves. She cant wait for a place to call her own.

Volunteer of the Month


The Medina family has poured their heart and soul into their fosters. They not only do everything physically possible for their fosters, they go out of their way to help SHDR with home visits and interviewing applying adopters. The Medina family has recently grown by one and have officially foster failed. We cannot thank the Medina family enough for everything they give to SHDR.
