From orphan to IDR’s well-known logo, Melvin is the true embodiment of a success story. He came to IDR+ the single pup born at an animal shelter. Unfortunately, his mother stepped on him at a very young age and caused a severe break in his small leg. He has endured multiple surgeries to get the leg working as best they could. He still has quite a deformity, but it does not hinder him. His beauty and poise made him the only choice for a logo when IDR+ incorporated. And his imperfection and will to overcome obstacles embodies our philosophy. Helping ALL Doberman orphans when we are able to, no matter their medical issue or age. For the 9+ years we’ve been rehoming orphans, Melvin has continued to represent the organization at events and in print. Success = Melvin in all our eyes here at IDR+, and we look forward to his love and dignity for many years to come.
