Alternatively, utilize a pet finder service, such as Adopt a Pet, to help you connect with a Dobie in need of a forever home.

Raw Feeding Advice and Support, the world's largest raw group on Facebook was created in 2013 to welcome dogs and cats to the world of Prey Model Raw feeding. They have plenty of articles, infographics and a staff of knowledgeable admins that are happy to help anyone get started with feeding their canine a strictly prey model raw diet - that is, no veggies, no supplements and absolutely no kibbles.
Contrary to the Raw Feeding Advice & Support Group, The Raw Feeding Community (RFC) focus on raw feeding, but welcomes varying degrees of raw diet - including those that include supplements, fruits and veggies.
Raw Feeding Community was created to provide an accurate and welcoming source of information and discussion for all of raw feeders. They strive to provide as much knowledge on raw diets as possible, to beginners and experienced raw feeders alike – whether they are interested in feeding prey model raw, BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food), and/or pre-made commercial products, or even feeding a partial or supplemental raw diet. RFC’s main goal is to help owners improve their pet’s diets by providing accessible, unbiased, evidence-based information.
