Princess Bella Intro, and possible Male Fawn

Hi Everybody,
Thank you Doberman talk, I've been lurking for years There are always lots of good ideas and advice on here!

My name is Julia and my husband is Michael. We live on an acre, 1/2 fenced in Chatsworth Ca. No kids.
Our 8 year old Bella is a rescue. She is likely 3/4 Doberman. We love her to pieces and have had her since she was 10 months old. She is definately red (a little darker than a Vizsla) with gold marking points. She is very spoiled with a great diet and lots of love and exercize

Today I met a possible addition to our family! He is a 10 month fawn dobie w/o papers with tail, ears and balls intact. The owner has another male Doberman and knows about ssa. I know that this dude did not breed "Loki" but that he comes from a byb. We would be getting him neutered after waiting another 8 months. I think his temperament is pretty sweet based on 1 hour and a few treats > he was laying by me and loving belly rubs. He's been known to be good w/ kids cats and dogs, but who really knows...

Bella has enjoyed being an only dog. She is very playful with her doggie friends. The new addition, we hope, will help her stay active and enjoy a part of her life with a dog companion.

Thanks again Doberman talk,
Julia, Michael, and Bella Everybody stay well and hope this Corona problem ends for us all asap.

p/s Id like to insert a photo or 2 from my laptop <><> how??

Welcome from Colorado!

The easiest way to post pictures here is to use a photo host like Flickr or Imgur.
We actually have a tutorial showing you how to use Flickr to post here:

Welcome again--sounds like you've got your eye on a good pupper to bring into your family.

Thank you for your welcome and replies.
I am planning to go back and introduce Bella and Michael to "Loki"
it almost seems incredible that we can possibly adopt this beautiful seemingly sweet dog.

What should I look out for?
Help!
Thank you,
Julia

Trust me he's gorgeous! We adopted him today, and after a 1.5 hour trip in which he and I bonded, he is now at our home in Chatsworth. Bella loves him too and I think my hubbies heart is melting too))

He sure is a handsome young man. Congratulations!

When you use flickr, you can choose the size of the picture you want to post--Typically, you shouldn't choose a picture which is bigger than 600 either horizontally or vertically.

Welcome to your family, Bella and Loki from S. TX!

Like other's have already stated, he's a handsome pup.
Since he's still a pup, I'm sure Bella will give a "puppy pass" for rambunctious behavior and set him straight on how to act, and who the boss is!

With older dogs coming into the pack, it might take a week, plus a few spats before the hierarchy is established. (Our Eva was adopted at age two)

Bet that long, natural tail Loki has might be a lethal weapon when he starts waggin' it rapidly, like Dobes like to do...

If you can, please post some Bella pics, as well!

Thank you everyone again! Its a nice feeling to be welcomed!
Loki had a bath today in our walk in shower after a little outing on the fire trail. Now he is softer and sweet smelling. He's a real prince! He is exceptionally well behaved except for a little thievery and nose ups to the kitchen counter.... sorry, i tried, no piccies today

Loki is one today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOKI xxxx He has been a great addition of joy and snuffly dober-love to our household. Bella and he play very well together and love exploring our 1/2 acre hilly yard that is full of mustard weeds at this time. She is the dominant one still, and such a flirt and loves to play. Luckily all that play has not damaged Loki's coat. We brought out they toys a few times, but decided to put them away again as it made them possessive.
Loki has learned to sit very nice while the food is being placed and he eats 5 cups of Totw, with chicken, fish oil and broth. He is a big boy! 28" high at the withers, not sure of his weight but he is skinny and has gained a little. His recall is fantastic in the house and yard and he is learning down. His coat is improving! It feels thicker and softer. He had some small bumps that went away with olive oil-vinegar-olive salve treatment. There is another pinkish bumpy wound that I have put same on as well as Anbesol so he doesn't chew on it, that is healing. He doesn't chew on himself or things much!
He is reactionary at the (not dog park- but there are dogs there) park. We are going to go back there today with Bella and see how he does a second time, sit and watch etc. He wears a harness and a webbing training collar, it seems the combination (lead from harness goes through loop on collar) is the best way to control him, if you can call it that!! We have taken him on several hikes! I feel like he might need some professional training, because of his non- socialization. His fear reaction is pretty wild he jumps up and twirls and tries to get the leash is his mouth.
Woof Woof I am one!! From Loki, Bee and me,
Everybody take care and enjoy life! Dogs in lockdown: they are all so happy!

Loki is so well mannered. He pissed in the house once and pooped on the concrete walkway once. He doesn't steal anything or even food from the counter, which , being so tall, he can access pretty well. Somebody must have trained him! We are so blessed. Just now we muzzled him and managed to clip all of his claws!!!!! We had some Tramadol (100g) from our vet who prescribed it to calm Bella when we dremel her claws.... and gave 2 to Loki, at 11am, now 5:30 so he is a little drowsy.

He is very affectionate and trusting more and more each day in the benificience of his new home with us! He and Bella are playing a lot, but on her terms! He loves going on hikes! Tomorrow I am going to get him weighed and a rattler vaccine. i think he has gained some

Ah, I wouldn't be inclined to try dog parks (or even areas with dogs present) with Loki--if he didn't do well the first time it's not likely to improve with age.

He's a very handsome guy and a big Happy Birthday to him.

I have a very big soft spot for fawn boys--took me over 40 years to get the one I'd been looking for all that time--show quality fawn male. I had him for 14 years and he was everything I'd been looking for--definitely show quality and proved it. And played in many of the performance venues as well. I had to let him go last November--that was hard--on me and on one of the cats who evidently though that the fawn dog was HIS.

So he's making do with a borrowed youngster from a breeder friend.

I was also very lucky--most dilute Dobes have less than wonderful coats when mature--CDA (color dilution alopecia) takes it's toll. My fawn retained a full coat all of his long life.

So just a cautionary note--not all dilute dog loose hair because of CDA--hypothyroidism is so common in Dobes that often it turns out the hair loss is because of (or partially because of low thyroid. And an awful lot of vets just wave it off as "Oh fawn--yeah, those and blue dogs have CDA and go bald) Make sure if this happens that you get a full thyroid panel--best when the tests are run at MSU--gold standard for thyroid test for many years.

So nice the dogs enjoy each other (although the bitches always rule.)

Thank you Melbrod and Dobebug!
Dobebug, congrats on your success with your Fawn Male! We think that Loki is just exemplary, but who knows, in actuality, its sad that he's not papered.
I can't add any more pics....
Where we take Bella and Loki and let them go is on private property park-like and ruggedly natural. It's right near the house and literally no one else uses it! I know that he would hate a dog park. The grassy open park we went to is an on leash park, and he is improving his leash responses a so we will be going there more, hopefully to get him accustomed to other dogs and people being nearby. Also I want to take him out to mall type areas. His calmness is growing! I took him up to meet the neighbors the other evening and he was so perfect!

Re alopecia: Cross your fingers I think his fur is pretty good! Bella has rounded claws and Lokis fur is not damaged by their playing. She has enough soft silkiness to rub off on him, I guess...He is getting grain free and salmon oil.
