I just wanted to let you know that the Doberman is working out really well in my home! He is such a doll and has the best temperament ever. He's been with me for about 6 days now and I did take him to the vet today to get fixed. We got him up to date with vaccines and had a heartworm test done. Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, so we will be setting an appointment tomorrow to get him evaluated for treatment.
I'd like to thank all of you for the reassurance and crossed fingers that he worked out. I was started to feel really bad about my decision, but I'm glad I went through with it as he is a perfect fit. Of course, I know that things can change and without persistance and set rules, we could turn him into a little monster. After his heartworm treatment, I plan on getting him into some agility work if he's healthy enough.
Also, Jennie ATX, thank you for offering your assistance. I'd love if you could send me the listing of apartments you have found that are Dobe friendly. I think it'd be a good thing to know just in case anything were to ever happen. Unfortunately, it is much more than moving in her case, but I feel it was my place to talk about her personal life. She already has an apartment in South Austin that she will be moving into with her three children.
