I've been adopted!

DAR&E only places within the Maryland, DC, West Virginia and Virginia area. Please do no apply to adopt if you live outside of those areas. Please click here to visit our Adoption Process page for additional information on adopting one of our DAR&E Dobermans & an online application!

Our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped.

About Buddy

Buddy is a 3-year-old black and tan with natural ears and a docked tail. He is a very large, stocky boy weighing 95 lbs.

He is a Velcro dog and always must be with his foster dad.  He is very sweet and friendly to everyone he meets. He loves meeting other dogs. He doesn’t realize how big he is so he can be too rough with smaller dogs and dogs that are not used to a strong playmate.

He is house trained and crate trained. His foster dad never puts him in the crate. Buddy does just fine when left alone. He tends to sleep on the couch or a dog bed when his foster dad is at work. He loves going for walks but is not the best on a leash. He is very strong and is a puller.

He normally has bursts of energy and wants to play when he is outside. When inside he normally will lay by his foster dad and relax. He listens well but could use some training. He knows sit when a treat is involved, and he knows come. He likes to chase cats so he should not be in a house with cats.  

This Is My Story

Buddy was found by a shelter and transferred to DAR&E so that we could help him find his forever home.
