Tanya always liked Dobermans - noble, clever dogs with a vulnerable and devoted soul. Eight years ago, Tanya already had a brown handsome Rambo, and she was enthusiastically searching all the information about her favorite breed online. On one of the forums Tanya saw pictures of Gray - a Doberman of a rare blue color found on the street by volunteers - a sick, ripped off, bald. Tanya took Gray from the shelter and started treating him. «Since that day, everything in my soul has turned upside down, I've become different, - Tanya says. - I realized that in this world there are so many dogs that owners refuse for the most primitive reasons – expensive to keep, big burden, the dog is too old, sickness, etc. Abandoned Dobermans are not able to adapt and survive on the street. They just die, if no one pays attention to them».
Tanya sold her Moscow apartment and bought a plot of land in a summer cottage cooperative. Now Tanya has her own house where her family lives: Tanya's ten-year-old son Vanya, sixteen Dobermans, four mongrels and three cats. Tanya takes home the abandoned animals that could not survive in shelters: «The old ones do not live for long, and they need a lot of care... But they also want to live! Live next to their man».
They say that if several dogs are kept at home at once, they will not be attached to people so much: when animal communicates with another animal, it is more conscious of animal instincts. All Tanya’s dogs understand human speech. It turns out that if we treat animals humanly, even an animal pack will love people selflessly. «My dogs are my kids, - says Tanya. - And Vanya is my best friend, I do not know how I would live without him».
