Welcome to the Doberman Rescue Alliance of Wisconsin, Inc. website!
My name is Alexis, and I need a home! Scroll down to read more about me below!

  Thank you for considering adoption of your next family member through Doberman Rescue Alliance of Wisconsin! All applications are screened thoroughly to ensure all dogs go to loving, appropriate and compatible forever homes.  After receipt of your Adoption Application a volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit, not to critique your home, but to see the home environment and answer any questions you may have.  Upon completion of the home visit, background check and veterinary reference check Doberman Rescue Alliance of Wisconsin will determine whether or not a Doberman will be placed in your home.  We are extremely selective in choosing adopters.  We invest time, money and most importantly love and affection in these dogs.  We will not adopt to anyone convicted of animal abuse, child abuse or any type of felony.  Doberman Rescue Alliance of Wisconsin is comprised entirely of volunteers.  We strive to keep the adoption process moving along as quickly as possible and ask for your patience during the process.  We reserve the right to discontinue communication at any time and reject the application should applicant communicate in a disrespectful, threatening, profane or non-productive manner. Please contact us at info@drawi.org if you have questions.

  Ready to start the adoption process? Ready to start the process? You can access the application here!!

"A Dog's Ten Commandments" 

1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful remember that before you get me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being.
4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.
6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understands your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
7. Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget.
8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out to long, or my heart is getting to old and weak.
10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: "I cannot bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death.
Remember that I love you.
