Blondie ~ A nice lady found this sweet girl after being dumped by her irresponsible owner. So, here was this hugely pregnant girl walking down the road all alone with no where safe to have her babies. She delivered 9 puppies 2 days after she got here. She was a great mom and never gave us any issues with touching the puppies. Her puppies have all found great homes, and Blondie is still awaiting her happily ever after. She does walk on a leash and is still working on basic commands. She is happy and energetic. Blondie runs to meet new people and treats no one as a stranger. She would love an active family with a nice fenced yard to play the day away in. She is fine with children, but may accidently bump a small child in her happiness to see them. She will spayed and current on vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention.
Junior is about 1 1/2 years old as of 03-2013. He is a loving, responsive calm natured dog. He is house trained and prefers to do his "business" away from the house. He walks well on a leash, knows his name as well as commands such as "no", "sit, and "drop it. He will calmly growl if another dog tries to steal his breakfast (I do too). Other than that, he gets along well with other dogs. At his foster home, he was around an 8 and 10 year old with no problems. Junior is going to make a family very happy. Please give him a chance to prove himself or you may also sponsor him on Richardsonrescue.org by hitting the donate button and writing his name on the donation. Junior was tested a light positive for heartworms. He is currently on the slow kill method for heartworms. This doesn't make him a bad pet to adopt, it just means he had irresponsible owners who did not give him prevention.
Macchi is 2 years old as of 1-2013. He is house and leash trained. Macchi loves rawhides and a good game of tug of war. He was never socialized around other dogs or cats in his previous home, so he will need to be an only pet at this time. We are working with him, and we will keep you updated. When we get him to himself in the dog park, he turns into a loving guy that loves to crawl halfway in your lap to be rubbed. He loves children but has no manners with them and will tumble them right over. We believe a home with older, teenage children would be best. This handsome fellow just needs a home that has time to spend with him and show him what a true loving family feels like instead of just living the backyard. We have not noticed any aggressive issues with humans at all. If you love this breed, Macchi would be a great rescue. Today's Dobermans are known for an even and good natured temperament, extreme loyalty, high intelligence, and great train-ability In fact, the Doberman Pinscher's size, short coat, and intelligence have made it a desirable house dog. He is neutered, has tested negative for heartworms and is current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.
