Noah is a 3-year-old Doberman stray who was having a rough time. Animal control fished him out of an irrigation canal where he was struggling to stay afloat. The shelter was going to euthanize him because he had an upper respiratory infection – unless a rescue saved him. Doberman Rescue of Nevada treated his URI, had him neutered and started an aggressive course of nourishment to get some meat on his bones. We also noticed that he drooled a lot — not typical for a Dobe. So our vet researched many possible causes and performed several medical tests to ensure that we were not overlooking any other ailments such as megaesophagus, lockjaw or immune-mediated encephalitis. Thankfully, we found no indication that he was suffering from any of these conditions, but we had to do these procedures to eliminate them as possibilities. Noah is a gentle, sweet boy who is aching for a forever home. Although he has not yet been adopted, DRNV will find him a nurturing family who can tolerate a little drool in return for a wonderful Doberman who just wants to be loved.
