About Arya

Arya is a very smart, fun loving black/tan dobie girl. She is a perfect do for someone wanting a puppy-like Dobie.

​She has great energy but is unbridled. She was born July 2016.

​She was an owner surrender. I got her out of the local animal shelter when a friend that volunteered there told me she was terrified and in need of a home. She appeared to had just birthed a litter. I rescued her without knowing her personality.  She is very loving and will be a great pet, but I am single, work many hours and busy. She requires more time, nurturing and training than I have available. 

​She loves to play catch and will leap up and grab tree branches for fun if bored​ and left in the backyard.​

Arya is very petite at 50 pounds and she has difficulty putting on weight. ​

​Her tail is docked and her ears cropped but do not stand. 

She does not know how to hold in her excitement yet, she is like a 4 month old puppy, she barks, jumps and cries loudly when stimulated by people or dogs. She was not socialized well as a young pup. That energy also means she is not good on lead. She pulls, circles and only listens once tired out. Good group classes with a trainer would solve this. 

​She is all about having fun, a bit rough in her play. ​She is calm on car rides but in a city environment will bark at activities she observes. 

Arya has learned to be a crate dog. She requires watching because when bored and not walked/played enough may chew on things she finds interesting so if no one home will be best left in the crate. 

​She is house broken. Arya has started to learn basic commands but needs more training.

​Arya is very affectionate to my resident Doberman, 6 year old male. She does prefer to be dominate but licks his ears and enjoys sleeping on him.​ She is ​Not good around cats. She currently has too much excitement so jumps on people so I would not recommend her around children under 10 or unsure footed elderly folks. Arya would be best at a home with a fenced yard for play or a farm for her to run! Not an apartment dog.

I am looking to recover cost of adoption and spay I paid for since she had just arrived at the shelter and medicine purchased for a urinary infection after surgery: re-homing fee: $300 requested.
