“My husband found Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue online and saw Jake’s picture. He found himself very taken with Jake and kept going back to check him out. One morning he sent me the picture & link, already knowing what my answer would be. ūüôā This was the first step of our fantastic experience in adopting Jake. The process at DHDR is organized, thoughtful, and everyone we came in contact with during the adoption process was exceptional! ¬†The application process is very efficient and within a week, we were able to complete the application and take part in the phone and in-person interviews. ¬†The staff during the interview process made us feel relaxed, comfortable and they gave us valuable advice.¬†¬†We read a lot on dog psychology to prepare for Jake’s arrival and that up front work paid off! ¬†There are excellent resources on the DHDR web site and we reference this information often. The staff at DHDR continue to help make the transition of Jake into our home a truly meaningful experience! ¬†Jake is now a member of our family and we are in love with him! ¬†He keeps us exercising every day and introduced us to the fun of dog parks. ¬†Thank you, DHDR for helping to bring Jake into our lives and now permanently into our hearts!! Oh, and we are continuing to stay in touch with DHDR through Facebook. ¬†We’ve met several new friends and I have a great place to go with knowledgeable people to interact with, share fun stories, and experiences, and ask advice.”
