    Our Spunky seems to have misplaced his spunk! Ever since he was abandoned by his owner to a high kill city shelter, Spunky has seemed depressed. He strikes us as a timid soul, who was unprepared for the chaotic and hostile shelter environment. Indeed, Spunky's fate seemed doomed as he caught the shelter upper respiratory infection, and was relegated to the euthanasia list. Only two years old, he had been fast tracked to the kill list despite receiving good behavior evaluations. We were thrilled to have Spunky join us, but upon arrival, it seemed that we were way more happy to meet him, than Spunky was to meet us. He seemed terrified and ... (Read More)completely shut down. It took a few days for him to relax and relate to handlers, but, slowly, he began to warm up. In a short while, Spunky became loving and affectionate, but still became nervous with new sights and sounds. Our mission was to give this beautiful boy so many positive experiences, that he could reclaim the joy of his puppyhood. Spunky certainly did not project the mighty confidence that we so often see in Dobermans and Rottweillers And yet, he has come around nicely, and seems to enjoy human touch, once he warms up. Spunky can be a bit shy when encountering new people and situations, but his tendency is to back away, rather than respond with fearful aggression. Continued patient handling, and strong leadership, will allow Spunky to experience the wonders of the world in a positive manner. Spunky is petite for the Rottweiller and Doberman breeds, at just 45 pounds, and may be mixed with a schoche of smaller breed DNA to explain his comparatively delicate features. He has all the classic Rottweiller traits without the massive size. Spunky has become a loving boy, who has completely charmed her foster mom. He has done well with other dogs, and he would be an ideal choice for a multi-dog home with well-trained confident dogs, who would help him feel at home and build his confidence. Spunky is behind the learning curve on basic manners and obedience commands, but he is extremely eager to please, and a joy to train. Adopters must be willing to be diligent in his training and socialization. Spunky has begun to learn the basics of the AKC Canine Good Citizenship program, and we recommend that adopters continue him on this path to build his confidence. He is a medium energy pup, who needs a couple of brisk leash walks, as well as focussed playtime, each day to release his pent up energy. Spunky has good house manners, for an older pup, and is housetrained and crate trained. Adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot the occasional accident that may occur he transitions to his new routine. He is neutered, and has been vaccinated for rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coranavirus). He has had the 4snap test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been microchipped and dewormed.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Doberman Pinscher in Connecticut
    Doberman Pinscher Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Doberman Pinscher is a powerful guard dog. Dobermans are protective, but are not vicious dogs; their reputation for aggression is undeserved. Doberman Pinschers that are properly trained and socialized are very gentle family companions.

lnteresting Doberman Pinscher Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Doberman Pinschers were first bred by a German tax collector named Louis Doberman. Dobermans cannot work in areas where it gets very cold in the winter. White Dobermans share a gene with white tigers and white lions. In rare cases, Dobermans can develop Dancing Dobermans disease, a type of peripheral neuropathy.
