Physical appearance: Ravan is a black melanistic female Doberman with natural ears and a docked tail. She’s average size for a female weighing in at 60lbs.
Personality: If you want high energy, curious and stubborn, Ravan is for you. She’s a young Doberman with plenty of energy to burn, but she’s also good at cuddling and chilling in the home. She is curious and stubborn, but also has some fear and confidence issues she needs help working through due to a lack of socialization. She enjoys playing with her foster sister and has done well with kids, but we do not know about cats. Livestock would not be advised as she constantly tries to jump the fence to chase the horses.
Why she’s in rescue: Ravan was surrendered by her owner because she tripped over her and hurt herself. She decided Ravan was too much for her and turned her over to rescue.
Manners and training: Ravan needs a lot of work and a family who is willing to put it in. She had a poor start in life with no socialization outside of her immediate owners and because of that she lacks confidence and will bolt if not shown that things are not as scary as she thinks. She is stubborn when training and will push to see how far she can go so she needs a lot of structure and rules to help her be the best family member. She can also clear a 4 foot fence in a single bound so she absolutely MUST be on a leash in a yard with a shorter fence. We are not confident she wouldn’t jump a 6 foot fence either, so leash walks and time outside are safest as Ravan will absolutely run off. She needs someone willing to work on a sold recall and through obedience with her to keep her from wanting to run off or wander.
Vetting: All of our dogs are brought up to date on rabies, bordetella, and combo, negative for intestinal parasites and heartworms, spayed and microchipped.
