Welcome to D.M.D.R.A.








Decker the Doberman came into rescue from a shelter in 2011.
Extremely depressed and completely shut down, Decker was covered with scars and scabs,
and the speculation is that he was used as a bait dog. It took some time, but his foster parent was able to gain his trust and get him more involved with the world around him. One day in the fall, a gentleman named Bill McKee applied to adopt Decker. He had just lost his velcro, super-affectionate Doberman companion and was looking for a new friend.  Bill was warned that Decker was not like his former Doberman, and would probably never be a snuggly, affectionate boy.  With Decker, Bill would have to look for, and appreciate, the small signs of love, trust, and affection- and Bill would have to work for it.  Bill decided he wanted to try.  After a few phone calls and emails seeking advice, Bill and Decker settled into their new roles and became true companions.  Bill needed Decker, and Decker definitely needed Bill.
From this amazing love story between a man and his Doberman, a bequest was made- and from that generosity, Decker McKee Doberman Rescue Assistance was born.
