    THE ROANOKE FIVE
    Just before Christmas we got a call about a group of Dobermans in Virginia that had been taken from a breeder nearly starved to death…no further details were available. We were told that two of the males were in such bad condition they couldn't be saved, but there were five dogs that still needed rescuing…could we help? Absolutely! Some amazing people in the Doberman community stepped up to the plate to help these dogs get emergency medical care and then a 13 hour ride to DRU! We rallied around and prepared the Isolation Building for their arrival…squishy dog beds, fluffy warm quilts, classical music, lots of toys and specific refeeding instructions….we were ready! What we weren't ready for was the condition these poor dogs were in when they stepped out of the van. It was heartbreaking to imagine the suffering these beautiful dogs had endured, and yet it seemed they still thought people were just great. The dogs began to recover eating five small meals per day, along with some vigorous deworming and plenty of pampering.

    Wow, it breaks my heart every time I hear of the horrible people who could do things like that to any living creature. I'd so love to have an "eye for an eye" law.

    Thank goodness you guys were there and giving these poor things a chance at life.

    It is heaartbreaking each time I hear one of theses stories of neglect......I don't understand how anyone can withhold food from an animal let alone several. I f the breeder could no longer afford to keep the dogs why not give them up rather than slowly starving them!!!! Thank God for organizations like DRU!!!

    Some people. I just do not understand people sometimes. I could never just watch one of my dogs melt down to nothing. I would be a crappy bag of Ol' Roy before I let that happen. :no2: At least, they are getting the treatment and pampering that they deserved now.
