Rescued in 2013
Est. Age 5 yrs old
On Saturday, 13 December evening, Tesmo was in the clinic and he rested his head on Raymund's thigh. Raymund said "I love you too."
We never expected that it was Tesmo's way of saying good bye and he passed away peacefully this evening.
It was also Tesmo's way of showing his gratitude to Raymund for taking care of him during his stay at Noah's Ark.
Tesmo was an ex-show dog and he was given up by his owners because he was
I recalled beginning of 2014, when Tesmo went into fits, it was Benoit, a Pyrenees Mountain Dog that alerted us by barking continuously to tell us that Tesmo was having a seizure. Kudos to Benoit for saving his life.
Tesmo will be missed by many friends who met him when they visited the sanctuary. He has showed us that Dobermans are not as ferocious as what we think, partly we have been influence by Hollywood that they are used as guard dogs and their job is to attack and to chase the bad guys away.
Tesmo was a real sweet heart, he got along very well with all the toy dogs and they could share food and sleeping area with him. He has never show aggression once towards anyone at the sanctuary, at the end of the day it is about respect.
Tribute to Tesmo
"When I look into the eyes of an animal.
I do not see an animal.
I see a living being.
I see a friend.
I feel a soul."
