Long Island: young B&T female, trained in bitework

A friend of mine sent me this link a week or so ago, and I was FLOORED this dog is still available for adoption.

Foster Dogs NYC: Meet Gina the Smart Dobie

Videos of her can be found under her name at this link: Hounds Town Charities

Now, I emailed them with a great deal of interest but she's not a good match for my household, so I figured I'd share what I learned.

"Gina was taught bite work in her previous home. We have no information on her breeding or extent of her training other than what we have seen firsthand. She was pulled from the home by a local shelter which we adopted her from.

She is a small, athletic build Dobe. Supposedly she had a false pregnancy also before we took her in. She is now spayed.

She has intense toy drive, not sure how that would translate to small animals like cats. But she is also obedience trained now (we put her through one of our programs) and responsive, wants to please. We do not really have cats at our facility to test her with. She boards at a doggie daycare facility the President of the charity owns.

She is crate trained in a wire crate.

She can be dominant with other dogs, she usually plays with males in daycare."

Someone go get this dog!! The folks who have her right now are very responsive and got back to me within 24 hours of my initial email.

I've just emailed an inquiry about her. We've been looking to adopt a female for a while. Thank you so much for sharing.

i wanted to know, too! unfortunately they just don't know anything of her background. did you watch her videos? she's got a strong obedience foundation and looks like she just wants to please her handler.

I really hope she gets a good home! A dog with a foundation like that would be a dream, especially with all the training/club opportunities that seem to be in the general area.

falnfexis -- Did they say she was female aggressive? Just because she's dominant with other dogs and prefers to play with males doesn't necessarily mean she's female aggressive, does it?? Maybe you should ask them specifically...

I live in Queens, and knowing that beautiful little girl is sooo close, it's killing me! But I have a cat, a female Dobe, and a lot of feral cats in my yard... Plus, I wasn't really looking to add a 3rd dog in 3 years....

it sort of does, unless you have an extremely submissive female it's likely from the sounds of it that it would not go well.

I call my female ssa, but really she can and does tolerate deeply submissive females, males she is fine with as long as she gets to play top dog.

From the sounds of this dog she'd be best in a very experienced or only dog home

yup. i also strongly suggest emailing them directly for any questions, as i posted this as a courtesy to the group that has her right now. i haven't trekked up there to see the dog, so i can't give any personal impressions.

they were entertaining my questions and i'm in Baltimore. i don't see why they wouldn't adopt to someone in Boston if those folks are willing to trek down.

That's terrific!! It would be great to see her in a loving home!! When you say "older dog", I assume you mean they didn't want a puppy, because this girl doesn't look very old to me at all. Did they ever mention what her age was, BTW?

I am truly impressed with her! I wish your friend the best of luck with the adoption! Can't wait to see more pics and videos of this beautiful girl!!

They did not want to give the dog the one friend I emailed due to her bitework, BUT
......... After seeing the dog, I know who the breeder is and have contacted them.

Its not looking good for GINA . It is the breeder, and dog I thought it was. Bossie is her real name
The breeder said they tried to get Bossie back when the 1st rescue had him, but they would not give her back to them even though they were the breeders (didn't make sense to me).... So being I know the breeder well, I did some digging on my own. They neglected to tell me they are the registered owner/co owner and the dog was confiscated by animal control . They said the neighbors complained that they were doing bite work and that's why animal control took her away from the other owner
if someone else gets her , I would be happy to tell them her pedigree privately
