Donna

Adoption fee: $400

Physical appearance:  Donna is a black and tan female Doberman with natural ears and a docked tail.  She’s 11 months old but is mostly full grown at 60lbs. While she won’t grow any taller, she will likely continue to fill out over the next year or two.

Personality:  Donna is all puppy. Puppy energy, puppy brain, puppy habits. She’s a sweetheart that loves attention, but she still needs work on her manners and to be watched to make sure she does not get into anything. She plays well with her mom in her foster home and the previous owner said she did well around cats and kids. She may try to play with the cats though, so if your cats don’t like to be chased, she’s probably not a good fit. She could also knock over small children with her bouncy puppy energy, so kids that are a bit bigger and more stable on their feet (7+) would be better.

Why she’s in rescue:  Donna was surrendered along with her mother Bella by a Good Samaritan that rescued them from a breeder.  Donna came into rescue with pretty severe demodex (mange), and a belly full of worms. She was in rough shape but has healed up and blossomed into a happy, healthy girl.

Manners and Training: We will require that whoever adopts Donna enrolls her into training classes to set her up for success in her home. The first 6 months of her life she did not get the structure and guidance she should have so training classes will both teach her some better manners and allow her family to bond with her. She does well in the car, is crate and potty trained, but generally needs work on all commands and manners. She will definitely need to be crated when you’r not home.

Vetting: All our dogs are brought up to date on rabies, Bordetella, and combo, negative for intestinal parasites and heartworms, spayed and microchipped before adoption.
