​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


Lawrence is the dog of the month!  

Lawrence was transferred to us from a Humane Society. He had a some degloving on his foot, unfortunately that led to a bone infection. Thankfully the infection is gone and foot is almost fully healed!! He was heartworm positive but has finished his treatment protocol. Lawrence does have a grade 4/6 heart murmur likely due to heartworms, this could potentially get better or may be something he lives with for the rest of his life. Despite all of that Lawrence is a sweet loving boy who lets nothing stop him! He adores kids and other dogs and just loves to snuggle his people. He will make a great addition to just about any family willing to take a chance on this sweet boy.

Volunteer of the Month


Karey Jones and family have been a true blessing for SHDR. They have always been willing to take anyone who needed a place to go. Their little ones are very respectful and show the dogs so much love and kindness. Not only are they impeccable fosters, they also help with transport any time they are able.
