Hello from WA!

Glad to be here!

My husband and I got extremely lucky and had the chance to adopt our new doberman from the local shelter yesterday! He's a very handsome 5 month old puppy. Handsome and rambunctious! We were worn out after several hours.

He came from a very loving home! He was taught Sit, Down, and Wait. Of course we're still working to perfect it. And I believe he was in the process of being housebroken - maybe being at the shelter brought him to square 1...

We're extremely excited about our new family member. (The cat certainly isn't) - We're also re-naming him, we're thinking Roman. He actually responds to it.

Now, I'm off to read more on nipping/teething and potty training! Can't wait to learn as much as I can!

Hi welcome to a fellow rescuer but you do know that rescuing cute little Dobermans is addictive.
He is so handsome, I'm sure you will all have great fun together. But your life will never be the same again. 😋

He was surrendered because the place where his previous owners were moving to didn't allow animals, or maybe his breed? Not completely sure. But they brought him to the shelter with everything! Dishes for food and water, his Kong toys, leash, kennel. They really loved him.
