This guy came to us as a local stray. After the last few tough fosters we were going to try to take a little break, but of course you know right when that happens I get a message "Doberman mix puppy needs foster"....crap. So...this is our very first dobe
foster, as we volunteer for all breed and rarely get any dobes in at all.
However, when he got dropped off, the trainer who picked him up said he might be a min pin mix. He is estimated at about 7 months, but he is very small. Another idea that has been thrown around is cattle dog mix. He is only about 25lbs and maybe 18" at the withers. I will tell you one thing, this guy is CA-RAY-ZY! He is by far the wildest foster we have had yet, and the very first dog in history to be able to outlast Rowan in energy and stamina.
They get along well so far, but I always supervise carefully. Rowan has been very tolerant of him so far, but I could see this little firecracker getting on his nerves after a while. I am hoping that with some regular exercise and a little training he will settle down just a little because...WOW....not sure how he's going to get adopted otherwise!
Here are a few more pics and a video

Sorry the images aren't the greatest, but this guy does not stop moving and I haven't been able to take pics of him in the daylight yet.
Any input about whether he is really a dobe or just min pin mix would be appreciated. He has a little bit longer coat, the white spot on his chest and feet seem speckled a little and his ears are shorter and perkier than a dobe...but any of those could be accounted for by the mix breed.
ETA: When I played it back the audio did not match up, so sorry if there is something wrong with the video. I just wanted to give it for comparison. Rowan is about 85 lbs and 28-29" tall.
