    Hi All, Well this is a update on our newest member IRIS. We have had her now 13 days and she is GREAT. Whipworms are all gone. She has gained 5 pounds, and best of all, sits on command, heels, sits when I stop, shakes hands, is potty trained almost all the way and gets along GREAT with the other dobes! All this from a dog who had been kept outside all the time, and had no training or had never been on a leash. WOW and she hasn't even started puppy obedience classes yet. They start 8 Aug. Will post photos when I get them :D

    Iris sounds like she was meant to be part of your family. Looking forward to those photos soon!

    Oh cool! Is Iris a rescue? How wonderful. Dobes are sooooo intelligent and eager to learn. I'm so glad all is working out so wonderfully for you. Can't wait for pictures!

    Well, she is sort of a rescue.. the owner didn't want her but I paid $$$$ for her. She is full AKC with a nice pedigree. I think she is going to be MS. (That's for Mississippi) Foxy Blue Iris. The name came from one of my other dog groups. She is really a GREAT DOG. God Just meant her to be with us I am sure.
