Helping Dobermans Find New Homes Since 1994

For 26 years, Doberman Rescue of North Texas has been placing purebred unwanted or abandoned Doberman Pinschers in loving homes. Most of the Dobermans we rescue come from shelters in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Each dog is checked by a vet, given all shots, tested for heartworms, spayed or neutered, treated for any illnesses or medical problems that are found, and micro-chipped. Without exception, all dogs are spayed or neutered. The dogs come to live at Doberhof, our Doberman-only private shelter in Grand Prairie. Doberhof accommodates up to 22 dogs in 11 air-conditioned and heated runs with comfortable beds and classical music. We have outdoor play yards where they exercise, sunbathe, chase squirrels and rabbits, and do other important doggy activities. We have limited additional capacity for dogs in sick bay and foster homes. When a suitable adopter makes the right choice, each dog is adopted to what we hope is a forever home. Puppies thru mature are normally available.

Covid-19 Update

Until Dallas County businesses are back to normal, we won't be holding our weekly Sunday Open Houses. We will be operating with a reduced number of volunteers and limiting the number of visitors meeting our dogs. To accommodate as many people as we can, we are scheduling occasional weekday appointments and 4 one hour appointments on Sundays starting at 10 am. Because our time is limited, we will only be able to meet with previous adopters and approved applicants. New dogs are continuing to come in weekly so we will find one, like the 4,000+ alumni before yours, that's just right for your family. Be patient, it's worth the wait!To meet the dogs, please fill out an Adoption Application. Previous adopters should email us at

Rescue Partners

We partner with Last Hope Doberman Rescue, headquartered in Killeen, TX, and United Doberman Rescue and Canine Castaways, headquartered in Buffalo, MN. If you live close to one of them, please check out their dogs.

Sales Tax

The Texas Comptroller has recently (2019) changed the way the relevent tax laws are interpreted so after 26 years, we have to start charging 8.25% sales tax on adoption fees and merchandise.

We are devoted to Dobermans

Important Information

Come see the dogs, most Sundays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (and ONLY on Sunday by appointment during covid), but first, we would really appreciate it if you would fill in an Adoption Application.

Our growing network of volunteers and supporters has allowed us to expand our adoption area! We now adopt to all of Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas and large parts of New Mexico and Louisiana. If you live in one of these states, we invite you to apply. We also adopt to people who have previously successfully adopted from Doberman Rescue of North Texas but have moved away from our primary adoption area.

We also encourage you to contact Doberman Rescues close to your home using the Doberman Pinscher Club of America Rescue Directory or doing an Internet search for Doberman Rescue in your state.

The first step in our adoption process is for you to submit an Adoption Application.
