New Doberman owner; new member
I have owned Boxers, had a number of rescue Great Danes over the past decades. When Bruno went to the vet for the last time, I decided to get a Boxer puppy. He has been a blast and at about a year of age, I was presented with a female Doberman puppy. Was necessary to keep them separate as she (Gina) was a gangly 10 week old while he (Rex) was over a year and 60 pounds. She is now five months old and over the past six weeks they have been playing together under supervision. Lots of noise but no one has been damaged and they have a good time.
I have known Dobermans but have never owned one before, much less raised one. She is pretty quick- knows 'sit', 'come' (most of the time unless smelling something interesting), 'speak', and 'shake'.
I live in San Diego County, the dogs have three acres fully chain link fenced to run around and chase ground squirrel, rabbit, and assorted birds and once in a while a neighborhood cat. Neither Rex nor Gina have caught anything as yet, but not for lack of trying.
Gina is a black/tan Doberman and Rex a dark brindle Boxer.
