Nino

Adoption fee: $175

Nino is a 10 year old, black and tan male Doberman with cropped ears and a docked tail. He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and negative for intestinal parasites.

Nino came to GDR from the Savannah humane society where he was reluctantly and heartbreakingly surrendered by his former owner due to medical and personal circumstances. Nino has been a bit stressed out by the transition into a foster home, so we have started him on some anxiety medication for the short term to help him calm down. We will probably recommend the same into his adoptive home when the time comes. You would never guess that Nino is 10 by the way he runs and plays. He still has plenty of energy and is the living example of how age is just a number. He is a sweetheart and loves to have his people around as much as possible. He refuses to potty unless his foster parents are outside with him and gets very upset if you leave him outside by himself, so be prepared to spend some time in the yard with him playing to help him exert some of his energy. He doesn’t really do toys, but will chew on a bone from time to time. He has done well with kids before ocming to rescue, but since he’s big and clumsy, very small children are probably not the best idea since he may knock them over by accident. He does well with other dogs but will not be homed with another male. We do not know how he will do with cats so would recommend a home without them.
