About Ketra


Ketra is a pretty black/rust female doberman with cropped ears and a short docked tail. Ketra turned 3 years old this month and weighs about 65 lbs.


Ketra has returned to DAR&E due to her adopter passing away unexpectedly. It has been a stressful time for Ketra loosing her mommie who doted over her.


She is a sweet, energetic and playful girl who will play fetch as long as you will throw a toy for her.


Check out her video:  


She would like a fenced yard big enough for her to play fetch in. Ketra loves to run and play and explore but best of all she loves to be with her people. Ketra is seeking a home where she will not be left without her people for long hours an a regular basis. Ketra is unhappy and will bark if she is confined so we give her free roam of several rooms in the house when she is alone. Ketra isn't destructive and doesn't get into mischief so that works for us and for her. Ketra is house trained and rides well in a car. She knows basic commands and walks pretty well on a leash. Ketra is friendly with people and gets along with other dogs. Not sure about cats. Ketra does jump up when she is excited, especially if she hasn't seen you for a few hours. It is a habit that she is pretty persistent with but turning our backs on her when she does it or when we know she is about to helps deter her. 


If you have time, energy and lots of love for a sweet, playful girl, email to arrange to meet our pretty little Ketra.
