Dogs For Adoption


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 Dozer

Dozer is an 8 year old, black/rust, male with natural ears and a docked tail. His defining characteristic is his incredibly sweet demeanor. Dozer is the definition of a velcro dog and is happiest when he is right by your side. When home, he is either lying down at your feet, burying his head in your lap and chest, or right by your side. Dozer has an eager to please personality. He can be shy in new situations and looks for reassurance and confidence from his humans. 

When Dozer is happy, he loves to run around. He is curious and friendly when meeting other dogs, but is not very playful. He craves human companionship above all else. Dozer is housebroken and crate-trained. He currently has free roam of the house and normally sleeps by the door waiting for someone to come home. 

Although technically a senior, Dozer is still a fun-loving and active boy. He absolutely loves going on walks! He can get excited and pull, but it is not excessive and he responds well to verbal reminders to circle back to you. He is the perfect energy level for a family that likes to be active outdoors but also enjoys lounging around the house— Dozer is always up for either! See Dozer in action: Dozer likes to chase his foster dad’s cats, so he would do best in a home without cats.

This Is My Story

Dozer's owner died and now he is looking for his new forever home.
