Who We Are
Dobie & Little Paws Rescue is a non profit charity. We are located in rural Fillmore, on a small ranch dedicated to animal rescue and to finding new homes for all of our charges. Operated by Ardis Braun since 1987, over 7000 dogs have been saved and placed in new homes solely through her outstanding dedication.
Approximately 90 Dobermans are waiting for homes, as well as around 50 small, mixed-breed dogs. We also currently have several dogs that do not fit in either category! Please peruse our list of adoptable pets to see all the great dogs that are waiting for homes. This site is primarily dedicated to our non-dobies, although you will see a few listed here.
If you are interested in a Doberman Pinscher or Doberman-mix, please

Open house is Saturday from 11 - 3. Please plan on spending a minimum of 2 hours selecting your new pet and completing the adoption process. And please be patient: sometimes we are busy and you may have to wait. Also, we close at 3 PM, so please be here no later than 2 PM. Appointments can be made during the week to see a specific dog.
Adopting a friend
Call us so that we may take an oral application on the phone. The point is to match up the right dog for you! All dogs have been spayed or neutered, are up to date on vaccinations and have been microchipped. The microchip helps identify lost dogs and return them to their owners even if they no longer are wearing a collar. However, microchips are only scanned by vets and shelters, so please keep a collar and a tag with a CURRENT phone number on your dog at all times!
(Our dogs also go home with a Dobie Rescue ID tag).
Donation fees are between $150.00 and$250, depending on the dog.
