Adoption Fee: $250

Journey is a black and rust cropped and docked male Doberman who is approximately 4 years old. He is heartworm negative, up-to-date on his vaccinations; he will be microchipped and neutered once he puts on a little more weight and before he is adopted.

Journey came to us from a good Samaritan here in Georgia. He and a pit bull friend wandered into the yard of this person and they decided it was best to get the guys off the street, so the good Samaritan contacted GDR. We are not sure how long Journey was on his own outside, but it was long enough to lose a significant amount of weight and have flies irritate the tops of his ears. The wounds on his ears have almost completely healed and he is putting on weight nicely.

Journey is the sweetest guy you could want in a Doberman. He wants nothing more than to be with a person, loves being petted and cuddled with and gives kisses when he is happy to see you. He is eager to please so he is learning some basic commands like “sit” and “stay” and his leash manners are improving daily. He is house trained and has no issues with cats in the house. Journey loves to play with his foster brothers and sisters but he would like to be the top dog in the house, or the only dog so that he gets all the attention. The best home for him will be one with another canine companion that is more submissive or a very active family that can take him running daily. He has a lot of youthful energy and would benefit greatly from obedience training, activities like agility training, and other types of mental stimulation.
