Jolene

Adoption fee: $400

Physical appearance: Jolene is a 16 month old red and rust female Doberman with natural ears and a docked tail. She is average size for a Doberman, weighing in at  60lbs.

Personality: Jolene is a sweet but intense Doberman.  When she looks at you, she looks straight into your soul. She’s a smart girl and a fast learner but we’ve seen some challenging behavioral quirks that require a very specific and experienced hime. She has displayed resource guarding tendencies with food, toys, and sometimes the space around her. Some of this way be nerves of being in a new place, but it’s still behavior that potential adopters need to be aware of. She is also very vocal and will growl even in play. Because of the resource guarding, she would do best as an only dog so she doesn’t feel like she’s competing for anything and absolutely no children of any age. Cats are fine though as she ignores the ones in her foster home.

Why she’s in rescue: Jolene was surrendered to animal control by her family after nipping a small child in the home. She was alone with the child and no one saw what happened, but because of this we will not home Jolene to a home with children of any age.

Manners and training: Jolene has no manners and needs a lot of work. She will jump up and drag you around on a leash. She does seem to know how to sit, but thats the extent of her training. On the bright side, she is a fast learner and has great focus. So long as you can get past her stubborn streak, she should be a breeze to train.

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.
