Aww, how sweet! I'm really glad it work out, I hate when people mistreat their pets. Yeah, I want a Doberman so bad that I've had at least 3 dreams about Dobermans in the past month, and I never dream!Had a weird dream last night in which the Princess told me she wanted to add a Doberman to our family. I have two Doberman stories. I will only share the good one. We were taking one of our goldens to an obedience school several years ago. There was a young girl in the class with a Doberman pup. The kid was overhandling the dog and jerking her around throughout the classes. Finally after one of the classes I asked the instructor why he hadn't intervened. He said, "It'll work out." The classes continued and the dog grew. Finally after a rather rough overhandling the pup jumped up on the kid, knocked her over, and stood over her stubby tail flagging away. The kid was startled and crying. The instructor went up to her and said, "Now, are you ready to start training your dog? She wants to learn, but is fed up with your roughness." The kid changed her treatment, and the pair ending up getting an award for best dog/handler. This pup really impressed me with her intelligence.
I just love everything about them! Thanks for sharing!!! Does any want to post pictures of your Dobies?I've never owned a Doberman, but it seems I've usually lived within a few houses of someone who does. I've always been impressed with their athleticism, they move like perfectly oiled machines. So graceful and smooth.
Our current next door neighbors have a red Doberman male. I love talking to him across the fence. He's a big part of why we got our Dane spayed, though. I was under no illusions how long that 4 foot wire fence would keep our dogs separated once she came into heat....and I'm sure Dane/Dobie puppies would be adorable, but not for me, thanks!
I had 3 growing up. 2 females and 1 male. They were black and tan and a blue. When I would tack up my horse, my blue female would bow and smile/chatter her teeth. She knew we were going on a trail ride. They were good dogs.
