About Hercules

Hercules is an 8 year old, red male Doberman that has the energy of a much younger dog. He is a very gentle and sweet dog. He is house-trained and is crate-trained. He listens very well and will go in his crate if you tell him to. He knows sit, stay, down, and here. He is a typical Velcro Dobie and will follow you everywhere. He loves to play fetch and almost always has a toy in his mouth. He is a very heavy chewer and will need lots of bones and durable toys or he will look for new things to enjoy. He will eat cloth or ropes, so it would be best to avoid that kind of toys.

He enjoys going for walks and is not reactive to traffic or loud noises. He is vocal when he sees dogs on is walks. He has met small and big dogs, and if they can hang with playing with a Dobie, they can play with Hercules. He enjoys meeting new people and getting attention, like all Dobies. He is a friendly greeter at the door and does not jump up on visitors. He doesn’t have a lot of experience with other dogs so he would do best in a home without a dog or one with a submissive dog. He rides well in the car and normally will lay down most of the ride.

Hercules is underweight and will need some help getting to a normal weight. He loves food and treats, so that won’t be hard for him. He is happy, healthy and ready for his forever home. 

This Is My Story

Hercules' owner had to move and couldn't take him with him.
