He was thrown out onto the mean streets of NYC & ended up in my parents' backyard where the feral cats were beating him up mercilessly. He was so people friendly and incapable of defending himself against other cats that he just wasn't going to make it on the streets. He won my heart in Jan. 2011 the first time I picked him up and he snuggled against my neck purring loudly and he's been with me since. Found out he was FIV positive (the feline equivalent of HIV) the day I took him in --- he went to the vet. first, who donated treatment for him at her own expense (and said she'd continue to do so as long as he lives). The day after I took him in, a huge snowstorm hit NYC dumping more than 2 ft. of snow. Talk about lucky timing.
The pics. above say it all: he's happy and healthy and adorable. If you look at the shots where he's upside down, you can see the white markings on his muzzle and chin combine to form a heart. That's what he is, too... All heart and 25 lbs. of lean cuddles.

Very nice looking Dobe. The woman that taught me Conformation handling was in the bred for 50+ years, Breeder/Owner/Handler. Wonderful bred of dog.
Funny how you ended up with two of the most devoted dog breeds.
Catahoulas are really beautiful dogs! I've never had the priveledge of seeing one in person. Love the puppy picture!
Thank you. My Doberman came from a breeder in Virginia. She has been breeding for many years. She shows and develops therapy dobies. Pretty cool.
I tell ya I own the sidewalk when I walk with these guys on either side of me LOL! Both are kittens but shhhh..don't tell anyone
The big guy was with us for 7 years. We miss him. The pic was from last Halloween. But, he is still in our hearts
Who doesn't like seeing some pets-looks like you've got some bengals of your own-they look great!
We have Moses, and your right, every picture I try to take he is either in it, or about to be in it.
Everyone has such lovely pets! I adore Shadow's story, and the laying-on-the-back-floppy-paw pose - lol
Right now I just have two cats. The red tabby is Taz, and I got from one of my assistant managers, his brother found her tossed into a dumpster. She was roughly 6 weeks old when I got her. She is a big poser. She huffs & puffs and struts like she's tough, but she squeals like a pig when the other cat calls her bluff.
The black cat is Zazu, and she's the same age as Taz, I adopted her from a no-kill shelter to keep the red kitten company. I think Zazu was deprived of oxygen or something, she has very slow reactions and is generally goofy, staring off into space for hours. These last few years she just stares at me, with big moony eyes that never blink. I'm finally used to it - lol. However I found out this summer that when a mouse shows up, she turns into the Terminator.
She was a wild dog that we actually trapped in a Have-A-Heart trap on a Caribbean island. It didn't take her long to get used to free food and water, AND a chaise overlooking the ocean.
Now she is a USA dog and this was her first snowfall.
