​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


Willow is the dog of the month! She was found abandoned under a house with her 5 newborn puppies. Despite doing everything she knew to do, her puppies were so sick we let them cross the rainbow bridge. She has stayed strong and knew we could help her and her puppies when she was all out of ideas. Thankfully Willow never has to worry about taking care of puppies ever again, and is getting healthier by the day so she can find her forever home. Willow enjoys the company of other dogs and people, she especially loves to hug and would love a family who would give her all the free hugs one can offer. 

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.

Molly is a silly one year old who is just as cute as they come. She sports an underbite that gives her even more character. She is very social with people and is so eager to please. Molly gets along well with dogs and kids, cats are unknown. Her ideal home would be an active family to play with her and love her exactly the way she is. Molly would like a dog she can play play play with. She would also do best in a home with older kids as she thinks they are fun playmates too.
